"Weird Al" Yankovic: Handy

(from Mandatory Fun)

saturn-and-soliloquies:

Handy (Parody of Fancy by Iggy Azalea) -"Weird Al" Yankovic

I played this for my wife, who is a property manager. I haven’t heard her laugh this hard in weeks.

Also: The video for “Tacky.” Somehow, Weird Al still has it.

You don’t need to say anything, Sarah, we already know: Because you haven’t come up in the news cycle very much lately.

MEANWHILE!

Hey Tumblr let’s make a sandwich. I need money for materials though. It’s gonna be a kickass sandwich and may be the perfect complement for this potato salad. Donate to my Kickstarter over here.
Edit: Sorry, wrong link. This is the right one.

My fingers are a little wet from drooling while posting this!

These are four of the most delicious-looking concessions available at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game at Target Field:

1. The Hangover Burger: The hangover burger uses a mix of ground beef and ground bacon for two quarter-pound patties. They’re topped with american cheese, lettuce, onions, a fried egg, and a sauce made from sriracha, ketchup, mayo and cornichons.

2. The Double Play: A polish sausage and a bratwurst stuffed onto the same bun, side by side.

3. The Brat Dog: A footlong hot dog wrapped in bratwurst, then wrapped in bacon, served on a pretzel roll. There are peppers, too, so you get your veggies. It’s healthy, right?

4. Lobster Corn Dog: Fried lobster on a stick. There are no bad parts about that.

Hey usatoday, you should get those drooling fingers checked out. That doesn’t sound medically feasible. Also, I’m pro-branded buns.

Kids who could identify golden arches and other junk food logos had higher BMIs than their brand-ignorant peers, researchers found.
A new study shows that young children who are familiar with unhealthy food branding—McDonald’s golden arches, Trix’s silly rabbit, Burger King’s crown—are more likely to be overweight than their brand-ignorant peers. Studies show that people who are overweight in childhood tend to stay that way. 

The researchers tested two groups of three- to five-year-olds on their knowledge of fast food and processed food brands like McDonald’s, Burger King, Coke, Pepsi, Fritos, and Doritos. They found that those who could correctly identify the sugar-and-grease-mongering logos tended to have higher body mass indexes (BMIs). “We found the relationship between brand knowledge and BMI to be quite robust,” said Anna McAlister, an MSU assistant professor of advertising and public relations who was a member of the research team.

In other words, if advertising works well, it works too well.
