    I believe I have discovered the formula for universal happiness. And because I’m an altruist, I’m going to share it with you here. But only if you promise you’ll share it with ten people you know and they’ll share it with ten people, and so on.

    Please sit down and take a few deep breaths. Now, I’ll tell you the secret to universal happiness, which is much better than simple happiness. The secret is this: homemade pop-tarts.


    Yes! Now, instead of having to eat those slabs of gummy, chemical paste out of a box, you can make your own fabulous pop-tarts. Pim, over at Chez Pim has this how-to-guide. No you have no excuse, and if you make a few extras, bring them on over and we’ll share.
