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.

SANDUSKY AND FREMONT AMONGST THE DRUNKEST CITIES IN OHIO!
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.
