*As the host of the once corny TV game show, “Family Feud,” you’ve got to give it to Steve Harvey. He has made the show worth watching. Harvey’s deadpan expressions alone–following an answer he didn’t expect from a contestant, makes it worth tuning in to.
So you can imagine the look on his face when an elderly contestant named Gene gave his honest opinion as he answered one of the questions on the prompt.
The question: “Name something that has to be licked.”
Now, since Family Feud is still, basically, a “family” show – you’d expect this old dude to say something like, a lollipop or a stamp.
*Yikes! What in the world is that in the photo above? It supposedly washed up on a beach in Santa Barbara, California, last week after the rains leaving those who live in the area and those just visiting to wonder, “What the…?”
“I’d say it looks like a combination of a seal and a dog with fangs dried up, potentially,” resident Michael Curtis told KEYT-TV.
“To me it looks reminiscent of a dinosaur…like an old dog, ancient,” Josh Curtis added. Continue reading →
*Now do we really need “new research” to tell us what we’ve been hearing for years about a man’s hands? OK, let me back up. This research says you can find the perfect man because the length of his fingers can predict how well he gets on with women.
But it goes into a bit more detail, I guess. It says men whose index fingers are close to the length of their ring fingers were found to have more harmonious relationships with women.
The lower the ratio between second finger and ring finger, the more likely they are to have a happy relationship. Continue reading →
*See, folks better stop calling themselves by the N-word, because when others’ not in your race decide to refer to you like that, how can you get mad?
Marquis Moore‘s feelings apparently got hurt after he saw the N-word allegedly printed on the bar tab space where his name was supposed to be, according to The Patroit-News. He had gone to Zembie’s Sports Tavern in Harrisburg, Pa. to eat and watch the game, but was shocked when he got his tab and saw the offensive slur.
“It makes me feel like I’m just low,” Moore, 29, expressed. “A n–ga is an ignorant, disrespectful person. It has nothing to do with your skin color. What would possess you to put something like that on a piece of paper? You don’t even know who I am.”
But here’s the thing. Angelo Karagiannis, Zembie’s owner, apparently thought it was funny; and wondered why Moore didn’t get the joke. He said Moore shouldn’t be offended by it. Reportedly the establishment’s bartender, Megan Bonsall, told the owner Moore had been chatting with other bar patrons. So when she wanted to know Moore’s name, she asked a friend of his, who directed her to his Facebook page where he referred to himself as “sexy N-word.” Continue reading →
After all, why should the bride and groom have all the fun!
On Sunday, “lucid_scheme” a Redditor user shared the photo above from his friends Bobby and Shanna Lockhart’s wedding in Lubbock, Texas, writing:
“A friend of mine had his wedding today. The Best Man is asked for the rings, the groom holds his hand out and the Best Man plays the “I don’t have them” card. Everyone checks pockets…and no one has the rings. Then…this guy rolls in. Continue reading →
And even those in exclusive, mainly Caucasian, fraternities, dream of one day having a go-at-it with the biggest female star today:
Well, as Spike Lee so eloquently said in, “She’s Gotta Have It,”… WAKE UP!
Ain’t gonna happen. Not even if a cold day in hell does present itself.
But a boy can dream right? And that’s what members of the University of Pennsylvania’s chapter of Phi Delta fraternity did. But they did it out loud. Posed for a holiday card with a naked brown-skinned blow-up doll and put it on Facebook and caused a ruckus.
*Ah college. Those of us who attended can probably recall doing some pretty dumb stuff – especially if we lived on campus – where we had more freedom from prying eyes. And some who went on to become members of Sororities, well, that’s a whole ‘nother story. The pranks you were forced to participate in? Some of which you initiated…do you now look back and say, “Dang, I actually did that?“
Yeah. Ya did. But you probably weren’t dumb enough to post it on social media.
Yet from any angle the sorority sister in this story can’t blame her actions on a prank she was forced into.
Nope, this piece of work was all hers. It was her decision to come up with what she wanted on her birthday cake.
And it was her decision to post the finished product on social media; where, unfortunately, if you are an institution, the actions of one member can serve as a reflection on the entire organization.
According to The Baltimore Sun the University of Maryland, Delta Gamma chapter is in some deep doo-do after social media picked up a recent Instagram where one of its members is all smiles standing next to her three-layer 21st-birthday-cake; inscribed with the message, “suck a ni*ga d**k”
*Hey, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a bad day. After all, we’re human. We all have ‘em. But many of us generally know when its happening to us; so we tend to stay away from people on those days. We don’t take phone calls, we don’t do the social media thing. Hell, we may even take a day off work or use some of those vacation days we’ve accumulated.
But what about the folks that seem to have a ‘bad day’ everyday? They appear to actually enjoy them. Instead of staying away from people, they tend to seek them out and create drama. If they can’t physically touch you, they go on social media and look for the most negative stuff to share.
Yahoo.com calls the people who exhibit these “13 signs” ‘bad.’ I just call them ‘unhappy.’ So I borrowed some of the ‘titles’ – but boy did I have enough examples (and titles) of my own! Whatever you choose to call these folks, (and you can’t change anybody but yourself) if you recognize you in more of these signs than you’d like, it may be time to change your ways…unless its working for you, of course.
