About Jessica and Jeremy

Not really us.

Not really us.

We started We Took the Bait way back in 2009, when we were twenty-something sort-of newlyweds, living in a post-war rancher with our puppy, Winston. Seven years later, we’ve moved into a new home in a sweet little town between two bays in Delaware. We are thirty-something parents of three awesome kids: our oldest son Kip, who is as adventurous as he is charming; our daughter, Sis, who is as precocious as she is creative; and our youngest, Baby, who is as adorable as he is adorable. Seriously, this kid is ridiculously cute. And, yes. Our kids do have real names,but we don’t feature them here, because the internet is forever. And one day, when one of our kids are up for a Supreme Court nomination or a Nobel Prize, we don’t want their parents’ potty mouths or review antics haunting them. “Senator: Yes, Sis, please remember that you have sworn to tell the truth. Is this, or is this not your mother, posing for a picture wearing nothing but memory foam slippers?” Oh, and Winston is still around and kicking. In the way that a nine year old dog can kick. Which is basically alternating between sleeping and barking at the UPS guy when he delivers our Amazon Prime shit.

When we’re not being suckered in to buying overpriced items that promise to make our life better or changing diapers, we can be found cheering on the Philadelphia Phillies and the Wilmington Blue Rocks, supporting the local music scene, making our way through our extensive Netflix queue, taking games ofย  Scrabble and Yahtzee way too seriously, and reading pretty much everything we can get our hands on. We also have a mini-van. Just putting that out there. Transparency is key.

In the real world, one of us works in finance and the other is a high school history teacher. We’ll leave it up to you to guess which is which. Jeremy is also half of the musical comedy duo Stucco Lobster Breadbox.

But, enough about us! Let’s get our review on!

    This sucks. I’mm tooo drunk to actually comment on your site. But I got here after drinking a lot…so maybe some drunk will heed your advice and not buy something from that dead guy!

    Best Wishes

    Moderation? I haven’t done that since I got married!

  • Joanne FitzPatrick says:

    Loved the site. Very informative! Can’t wait for the next review.

  • Alison says:

    I really wanna see you review the Slap Chop. I think that guy is SO funny…but I actually wanna see if that thing works. BTW the writing on here was great, witty,dry and sarcastic while being informative. I’m sold ๐Ÿ™‚

  • admin says:

    Don’t worry Alison, the Slap Chop is coming. Jeremy is so excited to use it (along with it’s bonus companion, The Graty) that he sometimes mumbles “You’re gonna love my nuts!” in his sleep.

    Your blog is awesome. It actually, LITERALLY made me laugh out loud. I think I’m in love with you two. You had me at ‘urethra.’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Jessica says:

    Lindsey – Thanks so much! It takes a special kind of someone to appreciate my husband’s anatomical humor. Glad you found us!

  • Jessica says:

    Thanks, Mom! See, everyone. You can always count on moms.

  • Lorien says:

    Hilarity! Dead useful and fun to boot. You don’t know how many times I’ve been sitting on the couch at midnight, phone in hand, credit card ready to go and at the last minute chicken out before I take the bait. Bookmarked for all the users of this computer to see. That means a whopping two adults, one that reads on purpose.

    Do you all have a facebook fan page??

  • admin says:

    Hi Lorien!

    We don’t have a Facebook fan page yet, although we are on Twitter. Glad you enjoyed the site, and we hope we’ll be able to save you from morning-after buyer’s remorse after a midnight infomercial impulse!

  • Mike Fitz says:

    Pum-Pum and Crumpus….that’s all I’m sayin.

    I know that is not you because that is my husband and I…celebrating 50 years in Mexico next month. I love this blog. If I could write like you I would. Darn!



  • Jeremy says:

    Hey, B!

    50 years…wow! Congrats!

    If that is you and your husband in the picture, we thank you very much for allowing us to use your image.

    If you want, we’ll link you up with a photo credit…. I’m not sure if there’s one on there at the moment.
