WHAT WE DID: AUGUST 29TH 2016

The college kids are officially back now, y'all. Murder Kroger is dangerous even past 10pm and Elm and Locust are both lawless zones where street signs mean nothing. Between that and all of the construction all across Denton, if Mad Max and some War Boys drove into town, we wouldn't even bat an eye. Just be careful out there, folks. 

What We Did is our weekly roundup of a few of our favorite photos that have been tagged with #WDDI in the past week on Instagram. 

Below are 20 photos from the past seven days of life in Denton, TX. This week we've got scenes from the North Texas State Fair, back to school week, and plenty of great events that happened in town over the past several days. 

If you'd like to be included in What We Did, tag your images with #WDDI on Instagram, and check back here next Monday. Search the hashtag #WDDI and check out all of the other awesome photos that we were unable to include this week. Click the images below to be led back to the photographer's Instagram page where you can follow them and like all of their images like the creep that you are.

DENTON LOVES PROFANITY

Cards Against Humanity touts itself as a game for terrible people, with plenty of bawdy yet laugh-inducing questions and answers sure to embarrass friends or family. But what happens when Denton faces and places get thrown into the mix? Sunny Marie Purdin is a UNT alum and self-professed “professional nerd” who has posted to her Etsy shop “DENTON LOVES PROFANITY: A PARODY EXPANSION PACK FOR CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY,” which quickly sold out then broke the internet as the site was endlessly shared across social media. Seriously, the listing itself is a joy to read!

We had a chance to sit down with this We Denton Doer who has crafted a custom expansion pack specifically for those of us who love the Little D. The amazing Wesley Kirk of People of Denton braved the downpour to take a few lovely shots as we asked this clever creator a few probing questions of our own.
