Warning: You’ll Get Crabs in Wake Forest

Warning: You’ll Get Crabs In Wake Forest

But when we saw the one below around town it was far too complex for me to figure out. If you’ve got a clue, …

The Best Way to Be Happy

Waiting to be Happy

The message of the day is about happiness. It’s so true, we often expect to find happiness through the acknowledgement and acceptance of others. If we did, this fourth rate paper wouldn’t exist. Maybe just being happy now, instead of waiting, is the best thumb in the eye to those that want to pee in your Wheaties? Just sayin’.

Ask Winnie – What’s Up With All The Damn Baptists?

Dear Winnie, I’m tired of running into Baptist all over town (don’t they know this town has a “no solicitation” policy?), so I’d love to know how many atheists live in Wake Forest, and where do they hang out? Jesus-Free Zoner [includeme file=”postincludes/subscribe.txt”] Dear JFZ, Even though I’m just a squirrel, I still get what you are talking about. It …
