    1. "Did you really believe you could become the American Idol? Well, then, you're deaf."

    2. "Like eating a hamburger for breakfast, it doesn't go together, I don't think you and that song went well together." 

    3. "If you had sung like this 2,000 years ago, people would have stoned you."

    4. "I never want to hear that song again. I cannot stand it. I'm allergic to it."

    11. "Shave off your beard and wear a dress. You would be a great female impersonator."

    12. "If you win this competition, we will have failed."

    13. "It would be like coaching a one-legged man to win the 100 meter sprint. I may be a great coach, but if you haven't got it, you haven't got it."

  • Make your own phone cover

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I kept seeing all these cool phone covers but I did not want to spend 30-50 dollars on a phone cover. So, I went to Hobby Lobby and my creative juices started flowing! It only cost me $16!

    What you need

    -Brooch that you would like as the main focus piece

    -Crazy glue or some type of strong glue

    -Rhinestones (scrapbook section)

    -Different size pearl stickers (scrapbook section)

    -Cheap phone case

    -Needle nose pliers (to take off the pin on the back of the brooch)

    Four Ways Your Smartphone Can Ruin a Date

    1.) Using it for anything other than an emergency: Only a few things count as an "emergency" during a date: Your boss calling, a close family member getting sick, or somebody nearby needing immediate medical care. If you absolutely HAVE to make a call for some other reason, let your date know upfront, explain why, then briefly excuse yourself.

    2.) Keeping your phone on the dinner table: When you're at a restaurant, your phone should be kept in your pocket or in your purse, on silent! Keeping it out on the table, or anywhere in you or your date's line of sight, is just rude.

    3.) Texting instead of calling: Text messages and emails are fine for some things, but it's impersonal compared to a phone call. So when you're trying to make plans, or if you're running late, call instead of texting.

    4.) Posting pictures and updates to Facebook and Twiitter: Don't post on social media unless you've cleared it with your date first. That means no status updates, no "checking in" or "tagging them, and please do not post a picture of your food.

    I will admit I've done some of these but not on first dates. I've done it when I've been with the guy for a while. Some of it is just common sense!

  • What's wrong with this picture?

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    So this is my hand obviously and there is something that is not normal. Haha! I showed Jake Kelly this and he couldn't believe his eyes. Yes my pinky and a few fingers are crooked. Growing up my parents told me I could point around corners very easily. Both hands are like this. This is permanent, I can't make my fingers do that. Haha! Do you have anything strange like this?

  • Packers game reversed?

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    I am just as frustrated as you all! A listener sent me this. Do you think this could make history and get reversed or have the game rescheduled? 

    "Unfair Acts
     
    Commissioner’s Authority
     
    The Commissioner has sole authority to investigate and to take appropriate disciplinary or corrective measures if any club action, nonparticipant interference, or emergency occurs in an NFL game which he deems so unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of a game.
     
    No Club Protests
     
    The authority and measures provided for in this section (UNFAIR ACTS) do not constitute a protest machinery for NFL clubs to dispute the result of a game. The Commissioner will conduct an investigation under this section only to review an act or occurrence that he deems so unfair that the result of the game in question may be inequitable to one of the participating teams. The Commissioner will not apply his authority under this section when a club registers a complaint concerning judgmental errors or routine errors of omission by game officials. Games involving such complaints will continue to stand as completed.
     
    Penalties for Unfair Acts
     
    The Commissioner’s powers under this section (UNFAIR ACTS) include the imposition of monetary fines and draft choice forfeitures, suspension of persons involved, and, if appropriate, the reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred. In the event of rescheduling a game, the Commissioner will be guided by the procedures specified above ("Procedures for Starting and Resuming Games" under EMERGENCIES). In all cases, the Commissioner will conduct a full investigation, including the opportunity for hearings, use of game videotape, and any other procedures he deems appropriate."
  • Where's the Burglar when you need him?

    Posted by Rachel Leigh

    An unidentified prankster was dressed as the mascot for Burger King and danced around inside a Rome, Georgia, McDonald's. The manager of McDonald's ended up calling the police. 

    Not only did the guy dance he also handed out free hamburgers and he snapped photos with children. 

    This was apparently all organized by The Woodcreek Faction, a self-proclaimed "surreal comedy group" based out of Atlanta. On their Twitter page, the group claims they were not asked to leave and didn't hear a peep out of employees until they were practically in their getway Acura.

    I don't know about you but I cannot stop laughing about this story! He even does the "Gangnam Style" dance! HAHAHA!

  • I'm also good at pirate dancing...

    Rebel Wilson is hilarious. She was the roommate on the movie Bridesmaids. She recently was host on Chelsea Lately and I had a lot of laughs. Rebel Wilson will be in the movie Pitch Perfect that comes out on October 5th. If you haven't seen a trailer for this movie, you need too! I am sure you have because it's been all over the T.V. My favorite quote by Rebel is, "I'm also good at pirate dancing!"
