Penn tackles Napoleon Dynamite’s famous dance scene

Kim and I were newlyweds. We were living in an absolutely minuscule apartment in New York City. Kim had to fly to Houston the next day because someone found a finger in a hot dog, and when you are the new reporter at Inside Edition, that story is yours, all day every day. I couldn’t go to sleep […]

Diamonds are Forever. But Tattoos are cheaper. And foreverER.

This is the 11th Valentines Day with my wife.  The first 10 have been very standard, and very predictable.  Flowers.  Dinner.  A card.  The card is the most important thing to her, which makes sense.  We eat dinner every day, and we see flowers every day.  I write with my hand so infrequently now that […]

Post by Kim: First, thank you to Cary Med Spa & Wellness for waxing Penn’s parts. And apologies to the woman in the room next to us expecting a relaxing spa day. We will now be posting videos every Tuesday and Thursday to our YouTube Channel. We will be out trying, learning, and experiencing new […]

Farts. Lots and lots of farts.

I am farting a lot. A lot. And so are my kids.  They are pretty psyched about it.  There is nothing better for a kid than farting at a quiet dinner table or sitting on a couch next to your parents.  Lola even goes as far as to try and waft the smell from her […]

And now for something completely different…

from Penn I am an insanely gigantic fan of Monty Python (thus the title of this blog).  Part of their legacy, and a huge reason for their success, was their staying power.  Their comic genius has spanned six decades so far.  And it all started with their sketch show Flying Circus.  At the core of […]
