Shocking!


From "the desk" at NBC Nightly News, we interrupt your regularly scheduled blog to bring you this breaking news bulletin. Apparently the beloved mentor and role model, one Mr. The King, from the Pixar movie "Cars," isn't as charming and personable as he made himself out to be on the big screen. In fact, he actually has a very quick temper and is quite abusive. We have proof out of California where a Mrs. Bagel from The Bagel Factory is claiming that her one and a half year old toddler was struck by Mr. The King above his right eye and she has submitted a photo for use at our discretion.


The lad seems to be fine, though there is some question of temporary brain damage as a result of the unprovoked attack. The growing concern stems from his propensity to prefer wearing his shoes backward now, choose classic adult literature over popular children's programming on the television, and display rather alarming and rapidly degenerating table manners.


We have also been notified that Mr. The King wasn't working alone. He was propelled into this vicious act of violence by the victim's older, mischievous, territorial brother who feels quite put out that his good name is now being descried and plastered all over the Internet, revealing him for the rogue he is. We tried to interview the boy about the infamous event, but all we got was the silent treatment as he hid behind his weapons.


We are also happy to inform you that despite the few questionable, and hopefully temporary, effects of the attack, the victim is now returning to his normal schedule of rest and terrorization.

I LOVE THIS POST!! It had me laughing from the first line. Love it and hope the terrorization of the Bagel household subsides soon. :)

Jare actually sat and read this posting with me! At first he's like, "Oh, I don't know them." Then when I said, "It's Anders!" He was all excited! Poor guy... I hope his eye gets better!!

I'm somewhat from St. George. I was actually born in Kanab. I grew up going to St. G every weekend and I'd live with my dad for a month or so every summer.
So for me, it's like going home. A lot of my family is still up there, which will be nice!

Ok, I gotta get this hair color off my head!! See you Sunday! Oh, I have something for you...

I knew there was something with that Mr. The King...I think he's hit a few kids at our house, though no black eyes to speak of. It's an outrage! We need to do something about him!

So cute and SO clever- you are amazing. Love the photos, LOVE the words. Cute cute cute!

This was clever and hilarious! Poor Anders. It's hard being the youngest. Halle is always the one getting beat up at our house. Parker poked her in the corner of the eye with his drum stick. It was black and blue for a few days.

You crack me up Liz! This post was great! Sorry about Anders ... Our house is the opposite. Jonathan seems to be on the receiving end of Katelyn's flying toys. We're trying to break her of that, but she's a sassy little girl! :)
