Foolery: Things that made me go hmmm...

Ummm...really? Nothing like picking up a bottle of soda and getting this message. I'd like to know who the Marketing & PR department consulted with before they decided to put this on their bottle caps. Yes I understand a little bit of French (even after 12-years of taking it in school, I can't speak it :-P) and I know that "retard" means late. However, "you" is an English word and they could have come up with a different English word to pair with that! So again...ummm???

I feel bad for this guy. The look on his face was absolutely PRICELESS! Granted, a lot of people don't even know about the word let alone how to pronounce it. There goes his chance at $1,000,000. Well, at least he got to go home with $2,000. Better than nothing.

Good for her! I worked out up until the Saturday before I had my baby. My last workout was cardio kickboxing and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I am glad I did it because I feel like it truly helped me. I don't know why folks are being so harsh to this woman but I certainly commend her. Plus its not like she just started doing this and it was not her first pregnancy. Women need to be more supportive of other women's efforts.

A truly inspiring story of turning lemons into lemonade. A broken engagement but the bride and her family chose to make the best of it. I was touched when I read it.

This made me laugh!

Have an awesome weekend on purpose everyone!

  1. Wow, good on the Fowlers! Thats just so amazing of them. And I especially love that they are making an annual thing of it. Lol at the half peeled potatos.

    1. Yes. It truly is. A lot of people turn inwards when they are hurt but these people turned outwards and used it as an opportunity to help others and continue to do so every year. Really commendable.
      Yeah...the potato thing is something my husband would do :-)

  2. omg, the half peeled potatoes! hilarious ... yet another example that shows that men and women often speak an entirely different language, lol.

    and the soda bottle ... yeah, no words.

    i love when you do this post ... gives me information that i had no idea about.

    1. It was funny wasn't it? I can see my hubby doing that and yes, absolutely a communication thing.

      I enjoy reading these things and often times, I wonder "really? are these people for real?" I am glad I am not the only person who thinks so :-).
