It’s brown, and it’s simply delicious. Some of the more twisted minds amongst you will think we’re talking about poop, but actually, it’s chocolate. We simply love the stuff, we can’t enough of it, and we feel deeply sorry for those poor people who are allergic to this gift from the Gods. Black, white, with nuts, in a mound of ice cream or in soap, it’s always a real pleasure, and we love our love handles if they were a product of chocolate consumption. May God, Xenu and Billy Idol bless chocolate, as well as today’s artist who did a chocolate flavored interview.

actually some of my favorites :]

-Extremely lame jokes and puns.

-Probably because I was hungry.
-Do you have your own FML anecdote that you can share us?
-Oh do I ever. One time when I was in high school, I was waiting in the car while my mom went shopping. I saw my friend and her family walking past me in the parking lot and I opened the door to say hi -- little did I know, she had locked the car with her remote control, which activates the alarm upon an attempt to open a door and re-locks all doors. So I ended up trapped in a blaring car, pressing my face to the window while everyone ran inside to find my mother and I very quickly died of embarrassment, haha.
That is a FML moment. Thank you for your delicious illustration
Michelle ma belle !
