Crap My Mom Sends Me

"mother isn't quite herself today"


August 2017



When my mom sent me an email with a list of State Fair Foods….

And the ones that you should try and the ones to avoid….

I was not expecting INSECT PIZZA TO BE ON EITHER LIST!!!!

Here is what the Indianapolis Star said about it:

“Insect pizza: Great Instagram photo op, but have a ton of cold root beer ready to wash down this one. The crickets, scorpions and mealworms lack flavor, but all those little legs and wings and thoughts of things will stay with you for hours. Pro tip: The fried mealworms are easier to eat. No legs to get struck between your teeth. The pizza underneath is not bad, thick and bready. Look for Swain’s Fine Foods pizza shop near the 38th Street gate.”


There is no photo op here!

There is no washing this s**t down here!


On a side note…the Deep Fried PB & J looks and sounds AWESOME!

The Straightest Gay Bodyguard Ever!


Long ago…before he was famous….Eric Stonestreet revealed on Saturday, July 29, that he once worked as a security guard for a Garth Brooks concert 22 years ago.

The Modern Family actor, 45, shared an Instagram slideshow of himself protecting the country superstar, now 55, at a show. In the first throwback photo, Stonestreet stands below the stage as Brooks interacts with fans. The singer signed the photo, writing, “Eric, Love you pal.”


In a second photo, Stonestreet looks serious while guarding Brooks as the musician performs a song on his guitar. The “Friends in Low Places” crooner wrote on the snap in a silver pen: “Here’s to circles.”

The Bad Teacher actor reminisced about his pre-fame job, captioning the pic, “In 1995 I worked security for A (ONE) Garth Brooks concert in Manhattan Ks. Last night I finally got to say you’re welcome for keeping him safe that night and basically giving him the wonderful career he’s had thus far. Thank you Garth for the amazing night I had with my #crew slash #squad #circles.”

The two stars reunited backstage at Brooks’ show at The Forum in Los Angeles and posed for a photo together.

Crying About The Big Bang…


My wife and I both are cry babies when it comes to a lot of movies, TV shows, songs, etc. We admit it…we own it….we are ok with it.

But usually….we don’t cry during comedies.  It just doesn’t typically happen! But then there are those moments…when the writers tug at our heart strings…and do things that make tears well  up in our eyes!

Little did we know…that even the actors have this happen.  At least…not until Mom sent me the following article:


Grab the tissues! The Big Bang Theory cast revealed that they got emotional on set during Sheldon’s proposal to Amy in the season 10 finale, which aired in May.

During the show’s Comic-Con panel in San Diego on Friday, July 21, the stars discussed the mood on set before the big moment between Sheldon and Amy. “I take Polaroids on set, so we must have — what do you think? — hundreds of Polaroids at this point that are all up on our little wall of shame in the wardrobe room, so I obviously I went up to get my camera for this moment,” Kaley Cuoco (who plays Penny) said. “I knew we were gonna do it and I had to get the photograph on my Polaroid, and I came down and basically everyone and everyone’s mother and friend was behind the camera for this one scene even though we all knew what was gonna happen, but I started crying!”

Kunal Nayyar (Raj Koothrappali) chimed in, “We were all crying. We were all crying.” Johnny Galecki (Leonard Hofstadter) added, “I came as close to crying as is possible for me.”

Cuoco, 31, said it was amazing to see how much their characters have grown since the CBS series premiered in 2007. “You see so many years and so many relationships have transformed and to see that be the pinnacle of the season, it was just really cool and we’ve all just come a long way,” she said. “We were all kind of crying.”

The group also discussed their favorite Comic-Con memories after a decade of participating in the annual event. Showrunner Steve Molaro recalled interrupting an emotional moment between Cuoco and Galecki, 42, who secretly dated for two years in the show’s early seasons.

“It was our first year here, it was ten years ago and it was 1:30 in the morning and I was going past the hotel bar and I saw my co-workers, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki,” Molaro said. “I thought, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go hang out with them.’ I didn’t know a) They were secretly dating and b) They were right in the middle of a fight, so I walked up and I could see she’s about to cry and I’m like, ‘I’m gonna go.’ And [Kaley’s like], ‘No, it’s fine! No, stay!’”

Cuoco joked that the awkward encounter brought them closer. “I think it was a great bonding moment. I come to you now for all my relationship problems ever since that day. I don’t remember what we were fighting about,” she said. “I forced you to stay, for sure. It’s a good memory though, isn’t it?”

Earlier this year, the show was renewed for two more seasons, which will take the show through season 12.
