WHERE CAN I SEE JUDGE HODGMAN IN REAL LIFE?

I’ve got more than one answer for you. You can go see his remaining 2014 tourdates in Alexandria, Virginia on December 15 & 16. You can also buy your tickets for next year’s MaxFunCon, a weekend of creativity and comedy in the woods of Lake Arrowhead, California. Tickets go on sale the day after Thanksgiving, and they always go fast. Be sure to get yours early!

EVIDENCE

Submitted by Jenny

Exhibit A: “TMNT” is from oldest child’s last birthday party and is an example of the type of event we attend together and would require us to explain our living situation. This party happened when we were living across the street from each other in Wheeling, WV, just before we moved to New Jersey, so this was the first time we had to tell people our plan of moving together. It’s one of the few pictures we have with everyone in it. From left: Erin’s Husband, Erin, Elder Child, Jenny, Youngest Child, and Stretch.

Exhibit B: “Trunk or Treat” is our latest “family” event that was part of oldest child’s school Halloween celebration (get it? We’re “Minecraft”). Erin is the “room mom” and did the class party while I decorated the car in the school parking lot. If this doesn’t prove that we are weird beyond definition, I don’t know what does.
