Rusty Gillespie, the Tampa Bay Food Monster, was born in 1985. According to witnesses, he screamed and shook, seemingly without control, for a solid hour after birth, until he managed to bite onto a nearby doctor, whom he chewed on til blood was drawn. Finding fully developed teeth in the Food Monster’s mouth, the doctor declared him to be an abomination unto the lord, and had him locked into an isolated chamber for further study. The baby somehow managed to eat his way through the walls and out into the city, and survived living off of scraps donated by sympathetic restaurateurs throughout the greater Tampa Bay area.

A working wife and mother of two humans, two canines, one equine, one bunny, life is chaos and I write about it. Said chaos has lead to the creation of my sarcastic sense of humor and sometimes I may forget the sugar coating on the donut.

Just know the message will be delivered in the form of a Sunshine Bomb vs a nicely wrapped ray of sunshine. Please enjoy a chuckle with that shot of honesty.
