Birthday At Disneyland

Most of you know that we moved across the country last summer. Most of you know that we were close to our family back in Miami. But, did you know that Paul shared his birthday with my brother at a big, blow out, Halloween birthday party every year for the past 20+ years? Did you know that the Halloween/Birthday party was a tradition in my family dating back to the day my brother was born on Halloween? This being the case, I took it upon myself to create a magical day for Paul that would simultaneously sate any birthday wish and take our minds off the family and friends partying 3000 miles away. What better place than DISNEYLAND for a birthday celebration!

Disney And Sex

It’s sexy time on CoupleDumb but on Tuesday, it’s all about the children. And when it comes to kids, we just don’t want to talk about the S word. However, if you look at statistics and TV, kids probably spend more time speculating about sex than we do. It is really sad that children are no longer able to be kids anymore. We are constantly worried about our children growing too fast and yet we keep them in a media soaked incubator of innuendo and images. Let’s tone this down a smidge for the kids, shall we?

Ungrateful Little Brats

Can you feel it? There are only a couple of days before Thanksgiving and you can smell the excitement in the air. We get so wrapped up in the turkey and fixings that we forget why we do this. No, CoupleDumb will not be leading you into a retelling of how the Pilgrims gave thanks because they weren’t dead. No, we aren’t going to mention that that story is a little skewed and the act of giving thanks was really that of the Native Americans. Just something else we stole from them. No, we are going to focus on our kids and how to teach them to be grateful people and not self-entitled little shits. Now pass the mashed potato!

If you are gearing up to see the Jonas Brothers movie come out in 3D, stop reading now. We’re just going to upset you. If you own the Hannah Montana wig with concert microphone, walk away from your computer and go play your Best of Both Worlds where you can pretend to spend the day with your idol. If you are my little brother, I’m about to upset you and don’t bother calling Mom cause she’s on my side. This isn’t just a kid thing. Parents are obviously feeding this Disney beast and singing along to those insipid little songs.

‘Don’t Fuck With The Mouse’ as Quoted From Harlan Ellison

You’re wondering, “Why would anybody say anything negative about Disney?” If you are thinking this, stop drinking the Kool Aid and pay attention. Once again, don’t get us wrong. We love Disney. We love the movies and the parks. As parents, we have tithed the requisite 20% of our yearly income to all things Disney. But, at some point, we have to acknowledge that they have hijacked our culture. This smack-down is less about celebrity and more about how fame has given them the power to change the social fabric of our country. “Don’t fuck with the mouse?” Heh… Lube up Mickey. Here we go….
