January 23rd is Measure Your Feet Day! Measure Your Feet Day is a holiday with a difference and one where you have the opportunity to give your feet a little more attention! People rarely think about their feet, but they are a vital part of our everyday lives and require as much care as any other part of our bodies. Seriously – when your feet hurt, doesn’t it ruin your whole day?
It’s also National Pie Day! This day may be an unofficial national holiday, but who can blame them – it was created simply to celebrate the pie. This is a day for all to bake or cook their favorite pies. Even more importantly, it is a day set aside for all to enjoy eating pies! How the first pies appeared around 9500 BC in the Egyptian Neolithic period or New Stone Age.
Is there anyone in your circle of friends you secretly HATE? 63% of people in a new survey said they can’t go to ANY parties or get-togethers without running into at least one person they’d rather avoid.
Here are the top 10 things that cause us anxiety at social events . . .
- Somebody you don’t like shows up.
- You mistook your Valium for aspirin
- You feel like you don’t fit in.
- The only person you know is the host.
- It turned into an Amway meeting
- It’s a potluck, and no one is eating the food you brought.
- No one is drinking the beverage you brought.
- It’s your intervention
- No one told you it’s a costume party
- All the food and drink options suck.
If you can just suffer through the beginning of a party, you might be okay though. The average person said they start to relax 14 minutes in. But we know within 10 minutes if we’re going to leave early or not.
A disgusting and dangerous new challenge is reportedly sweeping some corners of TikTok and it involves users eating cereal out of other people’s mouths as part of a so-called #CerealChallenge.
In recent days, several social media personalities have taken to the video-sharing platform to post quick clips of themselves taking a shot at the off-putting craze.
The challenge generally goes like this: One person pours cereal and milk into the mouth of another person, who is usually lying flat on their back. The first person then takes a spoon and eats the cereal out of the second person’s mouth as if it were a bowl.
All jokes aside, the Twitter community has largely criticized the #CerealChallenge over concerns that someone could get hurt or even choke to death.
Two years ago, the “Tide Pod Challenge” caused similar concern, after it was reported in 2018 that teenagers were chomping down on the laundry detergent pods despite warnings from the American Association of Poison Control Centers, Procter & Gamble, Amazon, YouTube and more.
Do guys REALLY do this? Apparently, there are guys who use BANANA PEELS when they’re getting-it-on with themselves.
Doctors are urging fellas not to pleasure themselves using banana peelings – after a worrying trend emerged online.
Randy blokes have been inserting their penises into recently peeled skins while masturbating – even heating the skin in the microwave to boost the sensation.
They claim the slime form the peel contains a great lubricant and produces a similar feeling to receiving oral sex.
However, medics are now warning the bizarre trend could cause painful rashes and sores.
And using banana skins to pleasure yourself may even trigger an infection as contact with protein inside the fruit’s skin can cause flare ups in some people.
Dr. Diana Gill, from online doctor and prescription service Doctor-4-U, said: “You could develop a rash and sores on the penis which can be painful and might lead to infection.”

I’m not sure what kind of night this guy was planning to have, but wow.
A 23-year-old guy named Jaquan Thompson went into an adult store in Houston on Monday night and stole the following things . . .
- 21 pieces of lingerie. (All teddys, for what it’s worth.)
- Beads designed to go in one’s no-go area.
- A penis pump called the “fireman pump.”
It was about $1,100 worth of merchandise in total.
The cops were able to quickly track him down, and he was arrested for theft.
New York Giants quarterback ELI MANNING will announce his retirement tomorrow, after 16 years with the team. He’s 39 years old. Team President John Mara said, quote, “Eli is our only two-time Super Bowl MVP and one of the very best players in our franchise’s history. He represented our franchise as a consummate professional with dignity and accountability.
“It meant something to Eli to be the Giants quarterback, and it meant even more to us. We are beyond grateful for his contributions to our organization.” Of course, those contributions were pretty minimal this season. He was benched early on for new draft pick DANIEL JONES . . . and was looking at either being a backup again or going to another team next season.
Manning holds almost every passing record in Giants history, and led the team to two Super Bowl victories over the New England Patriots . . . after the 2007 and 2011 seasons. He was named MVP of both games.
The only other players to be Super Bowl MVP twice are Joe Montana, Bart Starr, Tom Brady, and Terry Bradshaw.
He leaves the game after making more than $250 million from his football contracts, the most in NFL history. He finishes with a regular season record of 117 and 117.
Kinda iffy, but those two championships are probably gonna get him into the Hall of Fame. Especially the ’07 season, when the Giants spoiled New England’s attempt to go 19 and 0.
Plus, he never missed a game due to injury, and started 210 consecutive games before being temporarily benched last season. That puts him third on the all-time list for quarterbacks, behind Brett Favre and Philip Rivers.
Manning was famously drafted by San Diego in 2004, but traded to the Giants after he made it clear he didn’t want to play for the Chargers. They ended up getting Rivers instead. Ben Roethlisberger was also drafted that year.
The Super Bowl is less than two weeks away, and while a lot of people are excited for the game, it seems even more are excited about the food they’ll eat while watching it.
A new Tom Rose poll finds that 56% of people say the main reason they get together to watch the Super Bowl is the food. In fact 40% of people are so interested in the food and social aspects of the party that they missed most of the game.
74% of people eat more at a Super Bowl party than any other sporting event or viewing party.
Baby Boomers will likely eat about 1,710 calories during their Super Bowl party, while Gen Zers will only eat about 388.
When it comes to what food they enjoy most during a Super Bowl party, it’s not really shocking to hear that the top choice is chicken wings (50%). Other top Super Bowl party foods include:
Chicken bites (38%)
Mozzarella sticks (33%)
Veggies & dip (28%)
Loaded potato skins (28%)
Hot dogs (26%)
If you NEED your pet llama to get through the anxiety of traveling, I’ve got some bad news.
The U.S. Department of Transportation just proposed new rules that would bring an end to this era of emotional support animals on planes.If their rules take effect, the only service animals that would be allowed on flights are dogs. That means no pigs, no miniature horses, no turkeys, no peacocks . . . just dogs.
The DOT worded their proposal carefully to make sure they were being sensitive to people with legitimate needs for support animals . . . but they’re cracking down to limit people who, quote, “falsely claim their pets are service animals.”
The number of complaints about wild service animals on flights has jumped from around 700 in 2013 to more than 3,000 five years later. The president of the Association of Flight Attendants says they’re happy with the proposal. Quote, “The days of Noah’s Ark in the air are hopefully coming to an end.”
If you want to comment on the possible policy change, it’s open for public comments for 60 days.
Meanwhile in Old McDonald News – A Rogue Cockfighting Rooster Kills A Man
There are just some roosters you don’t want to mess with. Especially ones that have razor blades attached to their feet. A man has died after a rooster slashed him with a razor during an illegal cockfight in India.
It appears that the birds have razor blades tied to their limbs and are then placed in the ring where they fight until one is left standing. When an event organizer was placing the rooster into the ring, it struggled free and kicked out, fatally wounding 55-year-old Venkateswara Rao in the stomach.
Venkateswara was the only death reported during the events, however, a dozen other injuries were reported. The Indian Supreme Court banned cockfights as part of the 1960 Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act but they remain very popular in parts of the country.
