VIDEO: Dad ‘Argues’ With a Toddler . . .

A guy hanging a shelf was trying to get it centered, when his little son started commenting about it in baby talk from the next room.

So the guy somehow made it seem like they were arguing . . . and the kid went along.

Talk Like a Pirate Day

Talk Like a Pirate Day

Tomorrow, Saturday 19th, is officially “Talk Like a Pirate Day.” That’s the made-up holiday where . . . yeah. But made-up holidays are MUCH less annoying when they involve FREE FOOD.

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, Long John Silver’s is giving away a free fish or chicken tender to anyone who talks like a pirate tomorrow. But you can’t just walk in and say “Arhhhh!” . . . they want a whole sentence.

They even gave a couple examples on their website: “ARR I’ve come to plunder me free fish!” And, “Ahoy, matey! I’ve come for me free fish or chicken tender!”

Krispy Kreme is getting in on the action too. Although we’re not sure what pirates have to do with donuts. Who cares . . . they’ll give you a free glazed doughnut if you talk like a pirate.

And if you DRESS like a pirate, you get even more free stuff. Long John Silver’s will give you a free two-piece fish or chicken tender basket, and Krispy Kreme will give you a dozen glazed donuts. But you have to wear at least three pieces of pirate attire.

It’s not at every location, so go to krispykreme.com/pirate to find one near you, or call your local Long John’s. And go to ljsilvers.com/tlap for their “Pirate Name Generator.”

The 10 Most Common Body Language Mistakes we all make

The 10 Most Common Body Language Mistakes we all make

end-of-work-day

According to “Forbes”, here are the 10 most common body language mistakes people make, and why you shouldn’t do them . . .

  1.  Avoiding eye contact. You look like you’re hiding something, or don’t respect the other person.
  2.  Slouching. It looks like your energy is zapped, and you have low self-esteem.
  3.  A weak handshake. Which can signal a lack of authority.
  4.  Crossing your arms. It makes you seem standoffish and not interested in what the other person is saying.
  5.  Looking at the ground when you talk. It makes you seem weak and self-conscious.
  6.  Angling your body away from the other person instead of facing them. It makes it seem like you want the conversation to end.
  7.  Fidgeting. It makes you seem anxious.
  8.  Standing too close. When you talk to someone, you should always be at least a foot-and-a-half away from them.
  9.  Glancing at the clock. It makes you seem disinterested and arrogant.
  10.  Frowning or scowling. You can do it unconsciously, and it makes it seem like you’re disagreeing with what someone said, which isn’t necessarily the case.

Crazy but True! Doctors Used Skin from a Guy’s Forearm to Rebuild His Tongue, and Now He Has to Shave It

Crazy but True! Doctors Used Skin from a Guy’s Forearm to Rebuild His Tongue, and Now He Has to Shave It

Tongue-Piercing

A 48-year-old in England named David Billings went to the doctor about a year-and-a-half ago when he had trouble swallowing, and they found a cancerous tumor on the right side of his tongue.

Luckily they were able to remove it before the cancer spread. But then he had trouble talking, because an inch-and-a-half section of his tongue was missing.

So a surgeon rebuilt it using a skin graft from his left forearm. Which worked. That part of his tongue is still numb, and he doesn’t have taste buds there, but he can talk again.

He does have to deal with one weird side effect though. The skin from his arm still grows HAIR . . . so he has to SHAVE his tongue now.

He says it doesn’t bother him too much, and his wife doesn’t seem to notice the hair when they kiss. So he’s going au naturel for now.

(See a photo of his arm here.  Sadly, he hasn’t shared a picture of his tongue.)

Do You Talk Too Much? Here’s how to tell

Do You Talk Too Much? Here’s how to tell

3649328D-0545-4D32-9F12-4353253B8BC1

Is there someone at work who annoys you because they talk too much? If the answer’s no . . . is it possible it’s YOU? Here are four signs you talk too much.

  1. Everyone who sits near you at work wears headphones. Some people do it so they can concentrate. But if a LOT of people around you have headphones on, you might be the REASON they can’t concentrate.
  2. You’re always the one who starts conversations. It’s a sign that people are trying to avoid talking to you, because they know you’ll go on and on.
  3. They look at their phone while you’re talking. Which is a bad habit a lot of us seem to have these days. So if someone does it once or twice, don’t sweat it. But if it happens a lot, it might be their way of trying to end conversations with you.
  4. You almost never answer a question in one or two sentences. Like if someone asks what time it is, and you tell a story about the great deal you got on your watch . . . they probably don’t care.
