“But… I don’t know how to read… I’m a dog and dogs don’t know how to read. It doesn’t help that your y-yelling at me! I’ll never learn to read because I’m a dog and now I’m sad because you’re y-yelling at me…”
“Don’t mind if I do…”
“Ay yo! Is yous all lookin’ for some tasty baked treats in the Delmar Loop? Look no further than Piccione Pastry!”
“Located conveniently at the intersection of Delmar and Skinker, you can get a wide variety of wonderful Cannolis, Bombolonis, and Pasticiottis! You’ll even see me, Mr. Sfogliatella Riccia!”
“Try their many different varieties of pastries and cakes, including some incredible tiramisu!”
“Hey, did they mention the cannolis? They’re kind of a big deal. And if that’s not your type of thing, then help yourself to some of our lovely coffee drinks or a nice Italian soda! Tell ‘em Mr. Cannoli sent ya!”
(Editor’s Note: Don’t actually tell them Mr. Cannoli sent you; They’ll have no idea what you are talking about and will think you’re crazy. But seriously though, give this place a try sometime if you love delicious things.)
I recently visited Mission Taco in St. Louis and had some ultra-delicious soft-shell crab tacos! How good were they? They were so good I forgot to put googly eyes on them.
Give ‘em a try sometime!
“Aw man, I just swept that floor! Why’d you have to track your dirty shoes all over it?”
“I mean, the floor mat is right there. Why didn’t you wipe your feet on it. It’s a nice floral pattern, hard to miss…”
“Fine, don’t apologize. I have your scent now. Expect to find a bunch of muddy paw prints in your house sometime soon. *growl*”
“Oh boy! I am so excited to start my new job at Vino Nadoz! I hear their food and drink are the best in the St. Louis area!”
“There’s Alex the bartender! I hear Alex makes the best cocktails the world, and he’s such a snappy dresser! I’ll have to order one of his famous barrel-aged manhattans or a Blue Grass cocktail after my shift!”
“Ooh ooh! There’s head-chef Chris! The genius behind all the awesome food here! He’s writing up today’s specials! Let’s see… cider-braised pork belly… pork rillette… winged piglet stew…”
“… uh oh.. I hope I’m not working in the kitchen….”
Seriously though, Vino Nadoz is my one of my favorite places to eat and drink in St. Louis. If you have not been there already, do yourself a favor and come on by! The staff is great and the food and drink are even better!

I bought this awesome album while at Vintage Vinyl in St. Louis for Vinyl Record Day.
Marnie M. has submitted this work of public googliness. She writes:
Someone was busy googly-eyeing merch at my neighborhood K-Mart this week
Thanks, Marnie! I hope the masked googly-eye bandit never gets caught!

I wanted to hold off on showing this one until later, but I just couldn’t! This is another fine piece of googly art from Sharon E from London UK! She writes:
I went to a restaurant with my 92 year old nan who laughed her socks off when I left this little chap on the plate for the waitress to find.
And a fine, fine chap he is! Thanks again, Sharon, and stay googly!

We have a first time submission from Sharon E! She writes:
This statue is at my sisters house but felt it was missing something. How can they gaze adoringly at each other without googlies?
I couldn’t agree more! That’s some A+ googling there, Sharon!
“Hey, Lady! You got a few dollars I can borrow? It’s for the bus, I swear.”
“I do have the money you need, but I cannot give it to you. You see, it’d only encourage the public bus system which everyday crushes the private bus industry.”
“Okay, that makes sense… So, hey, could you loan me some money to buy some drugs from a local entrepreneur?”
“Of course ! Anything to help the local private businesses. Take a twenty!”
“ALL MUST BOW DOWN BEFORE THE GREAT AND POTTED PLANT! YOU ARE ALL MY MINIONS NOW! WORSHIP Y-”
“Oh, hi! Yes, sorry, I’ll get away from the microphone and let the president take the podium now. Yes, I’m a talking plant. Sorry…”
“Hey, buddy! You say you wanna be in show business? Listen up, kid…”
“First of all, I’ve been drinking. Second of all, you’ll never get no nowhere’s unless you’re willing to paint some cars here and there… know what I mean?”
“No? Well, let me spell it out for your then. PAINT MY CAR! In eggshell white, with those rollers over there.”
“Hey! That’s a good use of the rollers there. You know, you’ve got a chance in the movie biz, kid. By the way, that’s probably not my car. I sold my car years ago for some paint and some rollers years ago. You want to buy me a drink, maybe? I know how to make jerky…”
“Hey, I don’t remember anything about an expensive camera being placed inside me. I don’t know what you’re talking about…”
“I mean, it’s not like its something that’d be easy to sell to a pawn shop or nothin’, but of course I wouldn’t know anything about that…”
“Hey! That’s a major accusation to be making there, buddy! Tell you what, I’ll take us both out for drinks at the ritzy expensive place. I suddenly came into a lot of money from a… business deal, hehe…”
