Florida Man Dies After Roach Eating Contest

Eating a big ol’ juicy bug is one of those things a guy’s gotta do at least once in his life. It’s like drinking bull testicle beer--a one-time-BAM-done kind of deal that’s a true testament to one’s manhood.

Texans Break World Record With Frito Pie

I have to admit, I didn’t try the delicacy that is Frito pie until I moved to Texas. Growing up in Nebraska we sometimes mixed chili, cheese, and saltine crackers together, but the genius of replacing the Saltines with Fritos just didn’t occur to us.

Texans are onto something! Frito Pie is delicious, and who cares how fattening.

We Texans broke a Guiness World Record on Monday with a Frito Pie that weighed over a thousand pounds. Some states might be ashamed, but in Texas its a badge we wear proudly. We just may need a Tums to go with our badge.

The Average Coffee-Drinker has at least 2 Cups Per Day

Coffee is part of life for many of us.

Before making the big decision about whether or not to become pregnant, I asked my doctor if I could still consume my daily 2.5 cups of coffee during pregnancy. It’s a must. If I have a sip less than that, I can feel it. And I knew I may not survive pregnancy if I had to ween myself off, or worse yet, quit cold turkey.

If I could drink coffee while pregnant, then ok, I’d do more forward with the baby-havin’. If coffee was off limits during pregnancy, then that would just be a life change too huge to handle. Must have coffee!

Happy Birthday Lufkin!

May I have your attention please.  Someone was asleep at the switch yesterday, and because of this, you were not given the opportunity to "Party like it's 1985" (the "Prince" song?).

I and I alone, shall burden the entire blame for this miscarriage of journalism, and do hope my staggering incompetence can be excused.

Old Chinese Dessert Has Celebration TODAY!

Do you believe in luck over knowledge when it comes to surviving games of chance?  For example, I happen to know someone who proclaims to be a wizard when it comes to picking the ponies.  Have even accompanied him to Louisiana Downs, where I observed some minor magic.

I believe that no matter how intuitive one is, being a Svengali at the track likely results from the marriage between luck and knowledge.
