Destinies: An Introduction to English

It's tax season again. I recommend you get your taxes done early so you can get your refund sooner. I also recommend you don't cheat on your taxes. I give you this advice from experience. The IRS recently caught on to the scam I was running with Dumb Baby. It's my fault really, I got too greedy. I suppose it was only a matter of time until I got in trouble when I listed Dumb Baby as a church who was disabled in the Iraq War and is now an ethanol plant.

Since we don't have the money to pay the back taxes we owe, Johnny and I have struck a deal with the feds and in lieu of jail time, we'll be performing community service. As our community service, we'll be creating a series of videos to help teach English as a second language to dirty foreigners. The video series will be called Destinies: An Introduction to English and stars the two lovable scamps of this website as they search the English speaking world for Johnny's long lost sister.

Here's a preview:
