Smile Makers / Tuesday Things

It’s Tuesday.  You know what that means.  I’ve gathered up some news, some weird, some scary, and some fun to dazzle you with today.  There will be talk of sushi, sharks, M&M’s, and a pretty dang mysterious realty listing.  I know I’ve got your attention now.

Sushi News

If you are a sushi lover, maybe you’ve already seen this news floating around on the internet.  Similar to the worms that might be floating in your intestines right now.


I’m not so worried about this specific ailment because I tend to feel the same way about sushi as Sheldon’ mom on the Big Bang Theory.

Leonard: So, Mrs. Cooper, what did you think of the sushi?

Mrs Cooper: It was good. The only thing that would have made it better is if it was cooked and if it was beef.

Sharks– “You Have to Respect the Sea”

My Fellow FRIENDS lovers probably caught that Ross quote above.  Here’s a fun little story coming out of Orange County.  The Orange County Sheriff helicopter made this fun little announcement the other day:

“Attention in the water.  This is the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.  Be advised state parks is asking us to make an announcement.  You are paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks.  They are asking you to exit the water in a calm manner.  Thank you for your cooperation.”

So what they meant by that last part was, “good luck not pooping yourself while you paddle as fast as humanly possible.”

If I mention sharks, I have to show this scene from couple’s retreat because it makes me laugh every time.

“I need you to get the French out of your mouth!”

M&M Drama

I don’t really understand why this is an issue, but apparently it is causing quite a stir.  Do you see what the problem is?


The big issue is that the red M&M and the yellow M&M are ‘tearing apart the orange M&M’.  Let me guess… you all saw the delicious-looking caramel filled M&M, not the brutal murder.  Me too.

Are You Brave Enough?

There is a realty listing that is drawing a bit of attention.  It’s a house located in South Carolina.  $130,000 with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, 2656 square feet.  Not a bad deal, right?  Let’s explore the red flags in this listing.

  • The first sentence of the listing says, “please read carefully before scheduling showings.”  Hmmmm
  • Then there is this little tidbit of information.  Upstairs apartment cannot be shown under any circumstances. Buyer assumes responsibility for the month-to-month tenancy in the upstairs apartment. Occupant has never paid, and no security deposit is being held, but there is a lease in place. (Yes, it does not make sense, please don’t bother asking.) Makes plenty of sense.
  • Then there are these photos:


Was the upstairs tenant angry? Then there is this one.

Just a bit of red paint along the window and door.  Nothing to see here.  Why are ghost hunters paying to go in old creepy abandoned buildings?  For a pretty penny they could buy this little gem.


Well, that’s all I’ve got for y’all on this rainy Tuesday.  I hope you all enjoyed these Tuesday Things and your Tuesday as well.  Have a happy week!
