You Ready for Your Fixin O’ Flixin’?

Summer vacation has come to an end for us… OH YEAH, that reminds me: we’re gonna be on summer vacation like you guys til the school year starts again. 😛 Bahaha… Where was I? Oh right.

We have been spending this whole summer, eating hot dogs and watermelon and corn on the cob, so that we have the energy to EDUTAIN you in new (and/or old) ways that will leave you speechless (at our dorkiness).

Yep, that is right! Get ready for some original Brainyflix fun – VIDEOS, BRAINYPICS & MAWR – which will grow your brain, make you lol, and at the very least, give you an excuse to your parents for being online.

MORE UPDATES TO COME. MWAHAHAHAHA >:D
