Maybe you are one of those cool people who orders a double frappe half cafe triple creme whatever the fuck.

We don’t speak that language here at Folgers Fancy.

You’re not our avatar.

Our avatar is someone more down-to-earth, less of a poseur. Totally not a hipster.

Uncool people need a coffee shop too, you know.

That’s where Folgers Fancy comes in. This is what is known as blue water, among savvy marketing pros like us.

See, red water is where there are already sharks circling and they have started biting people and making them bleed. …

Intense exercise increases the risk of motor neuron disease, say scientists.

“We have conclusively found that exercise is a risk factor for motor neuron disease”, Dr Johnathan Cooper-Knock, one of the researchers, said. “The numbers of high profile athletes affected with MND is not a coincidence.”

Alright! I’m running around the house screaming and yelling in celebration of this fantastic news. But I’m not, I want to repeat, not exercising.

Exercise, as formally defined by the AMA is “a fucking chore that fucking sucks.”

Running around the house yelling at the top of your lungs because you get to cancel…

Featuring Bay City Rollers, Milli Vannili, Rick Astley, and Jimmie Osmond — my childhood dream come true!

I’m a long way from NYC, but I am going to take a sweaty private jet across the country to get to NYC for this humid and extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime legendary event — the concert to mark the end of the pandemic.

S A T U R D A Y Night!

You have to read off each of the letters and then really stress the word Night, in case you never heard this wonderful anthem to party-party partying, 1970s style. No, I’m not gonna put a link, you lazy bastards. And anyway, music isn’t meant to be listened to on a tiny…

I’m stuck in his ass backwards trousers! Help!


I tried to tell my boss The Donald that he was putting his trousers on backwards.

I mean, I could feel the zipper in my back, not in my front where I’m supposed to feel it. But the problem was, I don’t have a mouth and I can’t talk, so I couldn’t say anything.

Donald put his trousers on backwards.

I tried to tell my boss the Donald that his diaper was full and he needed to be changed.

I felt soppy and bloated and full and stinky. But I often feel that way. It’s not easy being Donald’s diaper. But the problem was, I don’t have a mouth and I can’t talk so I couldn’t say anything.

Donald filled his diaper.

I tried to tell my boss that his speech was stupid and calling Joe Biden the radical left is just ignorant.

Listening to these insane claims reminded me of listening to Nazi propaganda. If…

Driving to work

I was going against traffic, that made it better, but yeah, there was always a major jam just getting onto the campus road. Sucked. Then there were campus police who actually gave me a ticket once for rolling a stop sign. Fuckers.


Why should I pay to park? Pay for the privilege of working for the man. I hated that. And there was never enough parking. I’d have to circle and circle and circle. Sucked.

Walking Across Campus

The parking lot was like ten minutes from my office. I was always late. This sucked. And there was always the chance of running into…

Lisa, heiress to her father’s hundred billion dollar hamburger fortune, is, surprisingly, a vegetarian.

“I love McDonalds,” she demurs. “I get the salads. I would never eat a hamburger. And especially not a Big Mac. Why? Because I’m not gross, that’s why.”

Well, her fortune…

Might this be the first world problem of first world problems?
