Undercover Deviled Ham

This would make a great companion to the film "Union City"! I once walked in on a colleague helping herself to the sliced turkey I had in the break-room refrigerator. I was so embarrassed for her I couldn't even say anything -- my jaw just hit the floor as she made her sandwich with a smile on her face.

Saturday 'Stache

He says he's balancing a cupcake addiction and a gym addiction. See which is winning HERE.

P.S. Another concern raised was that it was "normalizing" the acceptance of Trump, who is anything but normal. I have always agreed with activist Mike Signorile that if you voted for Trump, you are essentially dead to me. But what if it's a close family member, perhaps an elderly one you love? Oddly enough, Tim Murphy -- perhaps the most "woke" person I know -- wrote this interesting comment on Facebook that allowed me to feel a little less horrible about not writing off my flesh and blood (lol). While I do fully believe racism and xenophobia played a huge role in the election, I have to believe -- as Tim does -- that some underinformed types voted for him thinking it was for the right reasons, however wrong they were.
