Dunky Cup – redefining the milk and cookie experience

Hey all, this is a really cool invention a friend is launching and I want to help him spread the word. It’s an awesome idea that has tons of uses, even outside of just cookies.

Back this on KickStarter


Dunky Cup is redefining the milk and cookie experience. What is Dunky Cup? It’s a Heavy-duty, yet sleek and comfortable to hold, the dunking cup was meticulously crafted for various-shaped cookies and milk. Inspired by the inventor’s love for Oreo Cookies (TM), the three pockets also nestle a variety of morsels such as Milano’s (TM), graham crackers, vanilla wafers, and even your own freshly baked cookies. At center stage, ice cold milk, tea, or coffee is stored and is where the dunking fun and mystique takes place. As an added bonus, Dunky Cup allows you to ditch the plate, elevating you to cookie dunking bliss with a simple, yet innovative approach to cookie dunking.

If you’re an expert or inspiring dunker, then you know the importance of taking a few sips of milk between dunks. Who wants a dry mouth, right? With Dunky Cup, you can sip away without worrying about the cookies falling out! The pockets and spout are made so that round sandwich style cookies will stay in place. In fact, with cookies like Oreos (TM), you can drink all of the milk before even biting into a cookie! This even applies to short, rectangular cookies!

Humor: 1 Year Ago (Gurley/Gordon)

smitty fantasy football advice

It’s amazing what can change in one single fantasy football season. Below is just one way to explain the craziness that was the 2016 fantasy football season.

Don’t miss out on landing the next Melvin Gordon, something we predicted this past off-season!

“I picked Melvin Gordon from your advice. Nice job!”
– Cablejacks

(… speaking to the below Bold Prediction for 2016:

8. Melvin Gordon will be a top 6-10RB in 2016!

(9/1/16) He was on my Bold Predictions list last year, yet he failed to deliver. He looks the part this time around, though, and I envision a HUGE season out of the guy I liked near as much as any rookie to ever come out of college. Do some damage, young Gordon! Read more on him below.

Week 4 Waiver Wire Adds

smitty fantasy football advice

Ok, before we get into some Week 4 Adds for this 2016 fantasy football season, it goes without saying that previous week’s recommends, like Dak Prescott, should be owned already, and some other rising stars, such as Christine Michael, would be the top pickup of the week if your league is super small. For most of us, players like Dak and Michael were even drafted, so let’s get into the ‘deeper’ waiver wire grabs heading into Week 4!

Week 4 Adds

Updated: 9/27/16

Jordan Howard (RB/CHI) – With Jeremy Langford (ankle) likely out 4-6 weeks, Howard will get a large window to show what he has to offer. He is 6-0, 222 pounds, so he is a great between the tackles option and solid bet for end zone work. Ka’Deem Carey (hamstring) could also see some action, but Howard is a great pickup this week!

Wendell Smallwood (RB/PHI) was a Bold Prediction, so he should be owned in huge redraft leagues already, right? If not, scoop him up, Sproles as well, as he seems to be available in larger leagues. Smallwood totaled 79 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Week 3. While I’ve loved the guy since he was drafted by PHI, it’s tough to say for sure what the Eagles will do at RB moving forward, as Sproles also had a big Week 3. It’s not known if Mathews was benched in the second half of Week 3, or if he got hurt. Our guess is that it was a little bit of both.

Davante Adams (WR/GB) could be set to produce consistent WR3/4 type numbers moving forward, as he found the end zone in Week 3.

Jamison Crowder (WR/WAS) actually shouldn’t be available in larger leagues, right? I mean, he was on our Bold Predictions list! The ultra-talented wide receiver pulled in 4 receptions for 78 yards and 1TD in Week 3, and he was all over the field almost the entire game. He’s a baller. It’s tough to say what his future holds, as sometimes teams don’t see the talent in such players, but I really like this kid’s skill set, obvious by his Bold Predictions list addition months and months ago.

Terrell Pryor (WR/CLE) played some QB in Week 3, as the Browns rotated him at times with Cody Kessler. He pulled in 8 balls for 144 receiving yards, and also added 4 rushes for 21 yards and 1TD. It’s tough to say how things will look in a week, when Josh Gordon returns, but Pryor is a great WR4/5 add for the moment, especially given the fact that he could throw some passes again in Week 4, and run some wild cat.

Orleans Darkwa (RB/NYG) looks like he could start Week 4, but Rashad Jennings (thumb) could try and play, so stay on our news wire here. Paul Perkins and Bobby Rainey are also in the mix for carries if Jennings can’t go. Perkins is the sneaky stash in our view.

Trevor Siemian (QB/DEN) had an awesome Week 3 outing, tossing for 312 yards and 4TDs. Now, are we looking at a regular 3TD passer in Siemian? No, I don’t think so, but his solid stat lines and confidence are both fantastic things for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders owners. We might be looking at a top 8-12 fantasy WR in Thomas (if healthy) moving forward.

Kenny Stills (WR/MIA) had a solid stat line in Week 3, pulling in 5 passes for 76 yards.

Rob Kelley (RB/WAS) stepped in for Matt Jones, who briefly exited Week 3 after a brutal headshot. While Kelley didn’t exactly capitalize on his expanded role in Week 3, and he was given some near goal line carries, it’s a reminder how injury-prone Jones is and it’s a good sign that the team turned immediately to Kelley when Jones left the game. If forced to start, and I think Jones’ abusive rushing style will lead to injury, Kelley could be a bit-time steal down the stretch in 2016.

NOTE: Josh Gordon will be back in Week 5, so if for whatever reason someone in your league dropped the guy, and if for whatever reason you didn’t see this earlier, grab him as the top pickup of the week!
