The Butter Cow

Hands off the Butter Cow! Congrats weird group, you’ve made no impact whatsoever…I couldn’t even make it through your entire statement. Ridiculous. Props to the Iowa State Fair for getting the Butter Cow cleaned up before people even knew it.

Speaking of the Fair

When you’re single at the Fair, you look around and see families and say to yourself, “well, that’ll never be me”…then boom, next thing you know, you’re a dad with a sweet little daughter who’s covered in tattoos, haha!

Okay, I  know, by State Fair standards, that’s far from “covered”.

We had heard for years about “Little Hands on the Farm”, but had never been…but now, with Dexter being 3 (yuck, I don’t like that he’s already 3)…and Priscilla being 1 1/2…we went on Sunday…and it quickly became one of my favorite State Fair things ever.

Umm…That Fair Square is as big as Priscilla’s head…and she will try to eat the whole thing. Don’t be afraid to share Cissy!

Justin Bieber Naked

Why must a nice Blog post featuring my kids enjoying the Fair also have to contain a story about the Butter Cow being vandalized & a story of Justin Bieber getting naked in front of his grandma?

Just weird…Canadians…you can make fun of us Americans for many, many things…but you have Justin Bieber on your hands…and you have to live with that.

The Most Hated Bands of the Last 30 Years

A website, salon.com, came up with this list…and it puts together a list of the 15 Most Hated Bands of the Last 30 years….and here it is…

  • NickelbackThe Dave Matthews Band
  • 98 Degrees
  • Smashmouth
  • The Black Eyed Peas (why?)
  • Insane Clown Posse
  • Hootie & the Blowfish (again, why?)
  • The Goo Goo Dolls
  • John Mayer
  • Dave Matthews Band
  • Creed
  • Train
  • Phish
  • Limp Bizkit
  • Blink-182
  • Lana Del Rey

As I look at this list, one thing is clear, this list was done by folks who really want to rebel against the mainstream. Apparently, if you sell 5 million+ records, you will be hated.

Here would be my 5 Most Hated…

5.Alicia Keys

4.Justin Bieber

3 Limp Bizkit

2. Chris Brown

1. Creed

I thought about flipping Chris Brown & Creed, but I couldn’t do it just yet.

Field Trip!

This is in Kasota, Minnesota:

WATCH: 10 best ‘Simpsons’ episodes

In this photo released by Fox, Homer explains why he wants to bring back the annual 4th of July fireworks display, after it's cancelled for budget reasons, in the "Yellow Badge of Cowardge" Season Finale episode of "The Simpsons," in May 2014. The full 25-year run of "The Simpsons" will arrive on cable channel FXX with a summer marathon, to be paired this fall with a digital extravaganza that could turn other TV shows yellow with envy. "I'm not going to over-promise, but I think this website will provide you with affordable health care," longtime "Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean told a TV critics' meeting Monday, July 21, 2014.

The recent marathon of all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons" inspired us to sit down and come up with our 10 favorite episodes. Enjoy!
