Twitter Feed The Beast :: Daily Grind #171




  1. involved with others in an illegal activity or wrongdoing:

    "all of these people are complicit in some criminal conspiracy"

I know we just fed the beast this past Thursday, but in this edition of the Grind, I come raging back from the Thanksgiving break with only good stories from the Ventipop family Twitter feed. Really, I guess you could say, this post is by readers. Ventipop  followers are awesome and link to some pretty infatuating things in their own right. And by "followers", I'm only using Twitter lingo; NOT calling you sheep. Nope, Venti fans have very strong opinions! I'm not saying you're opinionated, I'm just saying you guys rock! And by "guys", I merely mean "all of you": NOT being sexist. I love women. Intelligent, calming, beautiful, sexy women. And by sexy, I mean ONLY my wife. I can't win.

Welcome back, hope you had a great feast with no political convo battles with a beloved family member. Let's Grind.
