The Real Grouchwives of Sesame Street

Jarrod Fairclough – Every now and then Sesame Street release something that makes us do a double take because of just how bizarre it actually is.  Whether it be Grover parodying the Old Spice commercial, or the hilarious Big Birdman sketch starring Caroll Spinney, they still have a few tricks up their arm sleeve, and yesterday…

The Swedish Chef and PAM

Jarrod Fairclough – You know what I love besides Muppets, Netflix and crying at Pixar films?  Cooking.  I’m terrible at it, and it will likely take me three hours to make 3 minute pasta, but I love it.  And my recent find was cooking spray – how did no-one tell me cooking spray was a thing?…
