    Love it 🙂 and when choosing the person who’ll be the skin sack for the ritual dance, make sure to look for a big girl. Last year there was chafing.

      I know, I know … I’m so ready for the Mayan waif look to be over. You know what they say: More cushion for the pushin’ into the volcano.

    Pick up new heating element for corn bread oven and let those pesky Aztecs know we will not tolerate their continued kidnapping and eating of our people.

      Don’t even get me started about those Incan kids who are always cutting through my backyard.

    Jaguar mask…until the cougar mask becomes more appropriate!

      It’s a well-known fact that the Mayans invented leopard-print stretch pants.
