Please don’t be offended…

by Susan

Okay Ladies, we apologize right now…

But we are going to link to a site that some of you may not like. In fact, if you click through to visit this blog, there is a chance you might be offended.

But Jenny, The Bloggess, may very well be the funniest woman in the blogosphere, if not the funniest woman alive!!!

She may taking cursing into an art form, and she may say irreverent things, but it is all part of the beauty that is Jenny.

You see, Jenny doesn’t curse just for shock value. In fact, cursing isn’t even crass coming from her. It is just Jenny — hilarious, out of this world funny, Jenny.

In fact, Jenny is one of Janice and my favorite people in the world! She is a unique combination of sweet and bizarre. We adore her!!!!

Janice routinely wakes her co-sleeping daughter up in the middle of the night because she is laughing so hard reading Jenny on her iPhone. Janice will tell you that Jenny is her favorite blogging treat and she reads every post she writes.

If you get the chance to meet Jenny in person, you will understand why we love her so much. And, if you can handle a bit of cursing and craziness in your blog reading, when you read her blog you will understand why we say she is the funniest woman in the blogosphere. I guarantee you will CRY you will be laughing so hard.

Jenny takes funny to an all new level.

Now, Janice and I like to keep 5 Minutes for Mom a family friendly site so if you don’t want to read a site that contains cursing, etc, then you might now want to click over to the The Bloggess. But honestly, she is an UNBELIEVABLE talent and a very sweet friend. (Can you tell we LOVE Jenny?!?)

Janice got the privilege of interviewing Jenny at the Mom 2.0 Summit.

And I caught up with Jenny during BlogHer 09.

Parden me for saying “like” fifty thousand times during this interview… I have a hard time concentrating while talking to The Bloggess. I told you, she’s kinda wacky and makes me laugh as she bends my brain in weird directions.

So now if you’re in the mood for a laugh, read this post about Jenny’s adventures with and without her GPS. IT IS HYSTERICAL! Then grab a drink and read as many posts as you can until you’ve wet your pants.

Then grab a diaper and go read more at Jenny’s PNN column Ask The Bloggess.

Also, don’t forget to Fan her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter.

I think all the disclaimers about my darling friend Jenny are offensive. Why not just tout the site as what it is? Amazing.


3 Susan September 4, 2009 at 6:49 pm

Sorry Liv, we meant the disclaimers to be in good fun. (And some of our readers might be offended, so we did want to warn them.)

We definitely agree… Jenny is AMAZING!!! She is such a talented writer and she is also the sweetest thing. We truly ADORE her!!!

wow. :-(

not because I’m offended by sex jokes or cursing, but by your standard of what is okay for a Christian to reading. Who is Brody Jenner?? I follow Christ. Not the opinions of some dude with a blog…

I’m sure Jenny is a crack-up, but as a Christ follower, I’ll take a pass.

I ADORE JENNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is MY FAVORITE blogging treat and I read everything she writes. I was honored to interview her here!

thanks for introducing me to this blog- it is unbelievably hilarious!! My husband (the pastor!) and I laughed for HOURS today reading Jenny’s site.

Seriously I think she might be the funniest blogger I have ever read.

So thanks Jenny!!

I’ve watched Jenny’s evolution over the past 3-4 years and she’s definitely hit her stride. I can’t help but love her, and what I most appreciate? Even though we’re VERY different (i.e., the fbomb will never explode on my blog’s front door…) I’m pretty sure she doesn’t judge our differences.

There’s no one like her…and just once, I’d love to get inside her brain and see how in THE world she comes up with this stuff. I’d have to lick toads, smoke pencil shavings AND hit a college frat party to even hit her target. And then, I’m afraid I’d fall short.

Glad you introduced her here…she needs a few more readers ;).

I love Jenny! I was lucky enough to run into her at BlogHer this summer and she was so unbelievably sweet! Absolutely genuine!


9 Susan September 5, 2009 at 2:22 am

Tara, I love that your pastor husband laughed along with you!!!

Robin, you’re so right… Jenny does NOT judge anyone!!! She sincerely accepts everyone and understands that not everyone likes the same things.

She really is hysterical!! Thanks for sharing.


12 Maggie M September 7, 2009 at 4:57 pm

OMG, she is hysterical! I loved her GPS story and her post about taking her dog to the Vet. This lady belongs on Comedy Network TV!! Thanks for turning me on to her blog site:)

I am sure that Jesus had a sense of humour! And I love Jenny, she makes me laugh out loud and laughing is good for the soul!
