I don't want to spoil the surprise of these videos by describing them. Trust me, you'll want to see them:

BONUS RECIPES (Sorry, not theme-related):
Slow Cooker Baked Beans - "Slow
Cooker Baked Beans are great for so many reasons. They make a great
side, especially at barbecues. Just put everything into the slow
cooker and let it do its thing. Because these baked beans are made
in the slow cooker, your oven and stove-top are available for other
dishes. You know, for the corn casserole that you're going to make
for your barbecue. If you want to make these beans even more
filling, feel free to add ground beef. You'll practically have a
whole meal in one dish!"
Sunday Chicken Supper - "Sunday is always a day for comforting meals that take minimal effort. This Sunday Chicken Supper is a slow cooker recipe that's super easy to prepare and makes a complete meal in one! What's even better, you can prepare the meal in the morning and let it cook all day. Just like that, you'll have a complete one-pot meal ready to feed the whole family. With chicken, bacon, potatoes, vegetables, and seasonings, it's hearty and delicious."
Lazy Lemon Spoon Cake - "Lazy Lemon Spoon Cake is wonderful recipe to make any time of year, but especially when you're looking for a simple lemon cake recipe that is bursting with fresh, citrus flavor. This homemade lemon cake recipe is truly a treat. This cake mix cake is 'baked' in the slow cooker and uses lemon juice and zest, butter, eggs and water. All you do is dump your ingredients together, stir and bake. What could be easier? This is a great recipe to make for an after-Easter brunch or dinner. Try it out today!"
From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/11/16:
|At the end of the college
year, a star football player celebrated by attending a late night
campus party. Soon after arriving, he became captivated by a
beautiful coed and eased into a conversation with her by asking if
she had met many "potential dates" at the party.
"Oh, I'm much more attracted to the strong academic types than to the party animals," she said. "What's your G.P.A.?"
Grinning from ear to ear, the jock boasted, "I get about 25 in the city and 40 on the highway."
