Then I Googled it (natch) and found out it was for reals! OMGosh, this did have me laughing. So, don't judge me (and don't tell my Mom or I'll get more!) Luckily, years ago I fibbed and said that I wasn't allowed to get funny emails in my professional Gmail account. Heh heh heh.

 

Oops! Better not send this to Pinterest. Mum is cray cray over Pinterest! She might see my comments and then I'd be in trouble! BIG TIME!
