Taping Erin’s Mouth Shut: No “Avengers: Endgame” Spoilers! 4.29.19

Taping Erin’s Mouth Shut: No “Avengers: Endgame” Spoilers! Apparently, the only was the Todd think he can keep me from blurting out a spoiler from “Avengers: Endgame” is to tape my mouth shut on the show today. It just might work. We’re discussing an awkward issue- with “Endgame” running over three hours and no one wanting to miss a second, how do you avoid the inevitable potty break?


There’s a very vocal group of foodies who say we’re making our meatballs all wrong. Let’s put that to the test, shall we? Here’s the Todd’s Easy Italian Meatball recipe. BTW: are you looking for some new ways to make old favorites? Try the Todd’s Cajun Stuffed Turkey Wings- the recipe’s here.


Would you want your daughter to play high-school football? There’s a lawsuit underway here in Utah to allow it. What would you tell your daughter to do if a group of boys wouldn’t let her leave the room? One girl’s solution got her expelled. And there’s a clever new real estate enticement for millennials that is actually making them buy a home.

And if you win a multi-million dollar lottery and you used a stolen debit card to buy it, who gets the money?

The First Picture Of A Black Hole Or Eye Of Sauron From LOTR?  Is it just me, or does the first picture ever of a Black Hole look just like the Eye of Sauron from Lord of the Rings, look at the side by side comparison.

Can you even imagine how terrifying a home invasion would be? You, hiding in a closet and desperately calling the police? Here’s a chest-cam view from a SWAT officer responding to a call here in Utah. Wait for it…

Daddy-Daughter Dates: Sweet. And Sometimes Smelly – 4.9.19

Daddy-Daughter Dates: Sweet. And Sometimes Smelly. When the Todd takes our Zoe on a “Daddy-Daughter Date,” it’s always sweet. And sometimes smelly.


There was a particularly entertaining “Anti” protester at General Conference this weekend, you’ll love him. New Zealand may not have the Running of the Bulls, but they have something cuter. We introduce you to possibly the worst person in a position of power here in Utah. Ugh.


And in Tell Me Something Good, the most epic 13-year-old boy in North America. When his father leaves the family in dire circumstances and his mother working 2 jobs and taking the bus, this kiddo leaps into action. (BTW: need more stories of awesome kids and their… uh… awesomeness? Have a look at our “Kid tested and kid approved jokes” here.)

Truly Terrible Baby Names And “Pregnant-zillas” – 2.14.19

Truly Terrible Baby Names And “Pregnant-zillas.” Happy Valentine’s Day! Remember all the Bridezillas who were insisting on increasingly over the top demands for their wedding? It gets better. One mom-to-be angrily canceled her baby shower because her family was questioning her name for the poor infant-to-be: Squire Sebastian Senator. That’s just the first name. “And there will be no nicknames!!”

Also, 1,001 tasty spinach recipes from the Todd’s Test Kitchen… okay, maybe not that many, but after a friend dropped off five gigantic freaking bags of fresh spinach, the Todd’s been half insane coming up with new recipes. Win!

(Editor’s note: want more tasty spinach recipes – or, recipes that can MAKE spinach be tasty? Here you go.)

Not to be all depressing, but plan on paying on your taxes this year instead of getting a refund- the new tax changes aren’t all that helpful for us here in Utah- we’ll explain.


Plus- five clever dates for the broke and yet still romantic. You can find the complete list here.
