MONDAY’S 80s AT 8 SONG OF THE DAY: WEIRD AL YANKOVIC-I LOVE ROCKY ROAD. One of many food songs from the King of Parody Songs on his 58th birthday. Al got his start on the Dr. Demento show, and the Doctor makes a cameo as the ice cream counter clerk in Al’s parody of Joan Jett’s I Love Rock N Roll.

Couples Costumes For An 80s Old School Halloween.

The 80s were totally rad. And now you can create some righteous Halloween costumes based on 80s couples. If you want to dress up with bae and be the only ones at the party wearing that costume, here are some gnarly ideas.
•Madonna and Sean Penn – You’ll need a blonde wig for her and a bodysuit and some jeans. Sean needs a wig with hair long enough to run his hands through and a sleeveless white tee.
•Drew Barrymore And E.T. – you’ll need a striped turtleneck and some overalls, and don’t forget the pigtails. Your partner will need an E.T. mask and a brown bodysuit.
•Bob Ross and his canvas – Dressing as the famous host of “The Joy of Painting” means you get to paint your partner who’s dressed up as the canvas. You can order a Bob Ross costume, or dress your partner in jeans and a blue button down with a ‘fro and beard. For the canvas, wear a piece of foam core and have your partner paint some happy little trees on you.
•Samantha Baker and Jake Ryan from “Sixteen Candles” – You’ll need a bridesmaid’s dress from a thrift store or your mom’s closet and a flower crown to look like Sam at the end of the movie. Jake’s pretty vanilla, so wear a plaid shirt tucked into jeans and his hair slicked back.
•Princess Diana and Prince Charles – you’ll need military garb for the prince and a wedding gown with the biggest puffy sleeves you can find. Add in an enormous bouquet and the look is complete.
•Ferris Bueller and Sloane Peterson – For Ferris, you’ll need a military beret, a sweater vest and a pair of 80s men’s trousers from the secondhand store. Sloane needs some dress shorts, a pair of boots, and that white leather jacket with the fringe to win Halloween.
•Nancy and Ronald Reagan – The President and his wife were always dressed up, so put Ronnie in a tux and throw Nancy in a 80s evening dress – red of course – and you’re good to go.

The Wisconsin school of higher learning puts together a yearly list of what students have and haven’t experienced in their lifetime. It’s very handy so professors can relate, but it just makes the rest of us feel old.
This year’s entering college class of 2021 can’t remember when a “phone” wasn’t a video game and research library. Mostly born in 1999, the last of the Millennials have always been searching for Pokemon.
Among the iconic figures who have never been alive in their lifetimes are Joe DiMaggio, John F. Kennedy Jr. and Walter Payton.
They have largely grown up in a floppy-less world.
XM has always offered satellite radio programming for a fee.
There have always been emojis to cheer us up.
By the time they entered school, laptops were outselling desktops.
It is doubtful that they have ever used or heard the high-pitched whine of a dial-up modem.
They were never able to use a Montgomery Ward catalogue as a booster seat.
Donald Trump has always been a political figure, as a Democrat, an Independent, and a Republican.
Amazon has always been the online place to shop.
Blackberry has gone from being a wild fruit to being a communications device to becoming a wild fruit again.
Dora the Explorer and her pet monkey Boots helped to set them on the course of discovery.
One out of four major league baseball players has always been born outside the United States.
They never got to see Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Stein co-host a quiz show or Dennis Miller provide commentary for the NFL.
As toddlers, they may have taught their grandparents how to Skype.
Justin Timberlake has always been a solo act.

Now you can write with bacon too!

Oscar Mayer has created a computer font with bacon. The online generator lets you type in a message and convert it into strips of sizzling bacon. Once you type your bacon messages, or “baconversations” as Oscar Mayer calls them, into the online generator, you can “cook your message” which creates a video that shows your message coming together. And then you can share it on social media or download and share with anyone you choose. The generator only allows for 16 characters, so you need to get creative to make your point.

All Moms Will Want This Funny Bathroom Door Sign!
If you have kids, you probably can’t remember the last time you took a shower without a small voice calling you, reaching under the door, or bursting in the bathroom. Once you have little ones, there really is no privacy for you in there. That’s why we can all relate to this hilarious sign posted to the “Mommas Helping Mommas Facebook” page. It reads:If mom is in the bathroom you are NOT allowed to . . .#1 Knock, unless the house is on fire or someone is bleeding AND/OR dead; #2 Scream questions at me if the shower is running! HOT TIP: I CAN’T HEAR YOU!; #3 Wait for me within inches of the door and then yell at me when you get slammed in the face like it’s my fault; #4 Slip me notes of any kind, especially the ones with those check boxes.  And the awesome sign ends with, “Ask yourself this before knocking … Can I survive the next two minutes without mom?” And it’s followed by two check boxes, “yes” and “no.” Source: POPSUGAR CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT THE HILARIOUS SIGN.

Lake Superior State University’s 42nd Annual List of Banished Words (2017)
Through the years, LSSU has received tens of thousands of nominations for the list, which now includes more than 800 entries. This year’s list is culled from nominations received mostly through the university’s website and a committee makes a final cut in late December.
And now, the 2017 list:
• YOU, SIR – Hails from a more civilized era when duels were the likely outcome of disagreements. Today, we suffer on-line trolls and Internet shaming.
• FOCUS – Good word, but overused when concentrate or look at would work fine. See 1983’s banishment of, We Must Focus Our Attention.
• BÊTE NOIRE – After consulting a listing of synonyms, we gather this to be a bugbear, pet peeve, bug-boo, pain, or pest to our nominators.
• TOWN HALL MEETING – Candidates seldom debate in town halls anymore. Needs to be shown the door along with “soccer mom(s)” and “Joe Sixpack” (banned in 1997).
• POST-TRUTH – To paraphrase the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, we are entitled to our own opinions but not to our own facts.
• GUESSTIMATE – When guess and estimate are never enough.
• 831 – A texting encryption of, I love you: 8 letters, 3 words, 1 meaning. Never encrypt or abbreviate one’s love.
• HISTORIC – Thrown around far too much. What’s considered as such is best left to historians rather than the contemporary media.
• MANICURED – As in a manicured lawn. Golf greens are the closest grass comes to being manicured.
• ECHO CHAMBER – Lather, rinse, and repeat. After a while, everything sounds the same.
• ON FLEEK – Anything that is on-point, perfectly executed, or looking good. Needs to return to its genesis: perfectly groomed eyebrows.
• BIGLY – Did the candidate say “big league” or utter this 19th-Century word that means, in a swelling blustering manner? Who cares? Kick it out of the echo chamber!
• GHOST – To abruptly end communication, especially on social media. Is it rejection angst, or is this word really as overused as word-banishment nominators contend? Either way, our committee feels the pain.
• DADBOD – The flabby opposite of a chiseled-body male ideal. Should not empower dads to pursue a sedentary lifestyle.
• LISTICLE – Numbered or bulleted list created primarily to generate views on the Web, LSSU’s word-banishment list excluded.
• “GET YOUR DANDRUFF UP…” – The Committee is not sure why this malapropism got nominators’ dander up in 2016.
• SELFIE DRONE – In what could be an ominous development, the selfie – an irritating habit of constantly photographing and posting oneself to social media – is being handed off to a flying camera. How can this end badly?
• FRANKENFRUIT – Another food group co-opted by “frankenfood.” Not to be confused with other forms of genetically modified language.
• DISRUPTION – Nominators are exhausted from 2016’s disruption. When humanity looks back on zombie buzzwords, they will see disruption bumping into other overused synonyms for change.

Almost one quarter of Ohioans have admitted to binge drinking at least once in the last month, according to CBS, which is the 8th highest in the the nation. Ohioans also have the 14th highest number of DUIs as well. So, using a study of the number of available places to buy booze, and by how often people are talking about drinking, while factoring in drinking-related divorce, a service called RoadSnacks found that Dayton is The Drunkest City in Ohio. That’s followed by Canton and Zanesville, but at #5 & 6 are Sandusky and Fremont! Cleveland and Lakewood round out the top 10.
1. Dayton
2. Canton
3. Zanesville
4. Cincinnati
5. Sandusky
6. Fremont
7. Willoughby
8. Lima
9. Cleveland
