Feel free to answer more than once!


Mikey, Ty and Mr. Sombrero already know this (because I may or may not have performed it at a recent karaoke party) … but I’m a sucker for the late ’80s to mid ’90s Disney movies!  I know all the words to the songs from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and a bunch of the other great animated films from that era.  By far, my favorite is A Whole New World from Aladdin.  Here it is, for your viewing pleasure:

Now it’s your turn!

I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head for months (ever since Enrico told me about it)!  I sing it in the car, in the shower, when I’m at home, and even when I’m at work (much to the behest of my coworkers).  But to be clear, the song that is stuck in my head is not singing the Glee version (why is Blaine on stage wearing a messenger bag?) or the dumb version from the radio where they added the annoying extra drum beat.  For your listening pleasure, here’s Gotye‘s Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra):

Now it’s your turn!

I Don’t Want To Hold Your Hand

According to Wikipedia, handshaking was practiced in ancient Greece as far back as the 5th century BC. And some researchers have suggested the handshake may have been introduced in the Western World by Sir Walter Raleigh during the late 16th century.

Either way, handshaking is gross and I don’t want to do it.
Just thinking about where people’s hands have been makes me cringe.

Germy!

Slimy!

Eeeew!!

Probably didn’t wash their hands!

A clammy, limp handshake is disgusting. Plus, pandemic anyone? Did you know that you are only 6 handshakes away from dying a horrible, excruciating death? Here is a chart, so it must be true.

I move that we find another way of acknowledging each other and abolish handshaking altogether. But what form of greeting should replace the handshake?

The highfive? I would still have to come into contact with a sweaty palm. No thanks.

The fistbump? Touching is still involved. Pass.

The salute? Too formal.

A curtsy? Too fancy schmancy.

A bow? Not bad – but Asian people might think I’m mocking them.

The airkiss? Too phony.

A hug? Fine for friends (or Polt), but if I don’t want to shake your hand,
I certainly don’t want to hug you.

So what does that leave?

It’s the perfect solution. It’s friendly, yet allows one to keep one’s distance.

It works for all ages – from the littleuns’…

to the tweens…

to the oldz.

All the cool kids do it.

As well as human rights leaders,

and deities.

So next time someone wants to shake your hand, avoid that moist, grimy mitt.
Lock and load and fire off those fingerguns!

Pick a good one!

Nose-picking is an extremely common habit, with some surveys indicating that it is almost universal, with people picking their nose an average of about four times a day. A 1995 study into nose picking, requesting information from 1,000 randomly selected adults, gathered 254 respondents. It defined nose-picking as “the insertion of a finger (or other object) into the nose with the intention of removing dried nasal secretions”. Of those who responded, 91% said they were current nose pickers (but only 75% of these believed everyone did it). In many cultures nose-picking is considered a private act akin to defecation, urination, flatulence, and belching. Mucophagy, the act of eating the extracted mucus, may be considered more taboo, and is sometimes portrayed in comedies. To be caught nose-picking may be considered humiliating. [source]


Do you ever pick your nose? Have you ever been caught in the act? Do you ever eat it?
