Sarah, River and Val can take a WHOOP-TEE-DOO as well…no one is looking.


  1. Good going there T.!
    Joeh - I didn't think you were serious or I would have tried, but Theresa would have still won! LOL!

  2. This was an exciting contest.

    I was going to bring your wife's list to a pharmacist and see what they could figure out.

    Or perhaps a mail carrier.

  3. It's not the victory, but the competition! I gave it my best shot.

    BROWNIE BRITTLE! Might as well add some Unicorn Milk to wash it down. Never heard of such a thing.

  4. Sob...I should have tried harder!

  5. Her lists are a source of entertainment for us, at least. Congratulations to all who were brave enough to try!

  6. brownie brittle? wth???? lol! well, i'll take some exedrin now and get over my headache with a whoop-tee-do!

  7. Your wife's grocery lists make my eyes bleed. I'll bet she's brilliant. You know like doctors. I can't read their writing either.

    Congratulations to the winners.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  8. Um, is your wife a doctor? If not, she may have missed her calling. (She's already got the penmanship requirements down pat!)

  9. Congratulations to the brave contestants. Perhaps Mrs. C. should work for the state department because deciphering her handwriting would be harder than hacking the system.

  10. Wow, I'm impressed with all who tried. You might put TexWis on retainer to be your regular interpreter.

  11. I'm sorry I missed this yesterday. Then I took a look at the list and decided that I was relieved. Always fun. :)

  12. This comment has been removed by the author.

  13. I think the best guess is "brain bleach" (and I think there is a need for a product like this).

  14. Oh man, Joe, I wrote a huge answer for this back when you posted it! I somehow lost it though, between keystrokes and didn't have the energy to re-write. I would say it looked a lot like Val's answer.


I love comments, especially some of my commenters are funny as heck!

Oh, and don't be shy, Never miss a Cranky Post.
