MUSTARD – THIS IS HYSTERICAL
I Love Mustard. (This is a true story. If you have children you will probably relate to this father).
As ham sandwiches go, it was perfection: a thick slab of ham on a fresh bun with crisp lettuce and plenty of expensive, light brown, gourmet mustard.
The corners of my jaw aching in anticipation, I carried it to the table in our backyard, picked it up with both hands, but was stopped by my wife suddenly at my side.
"Here, hold Johnny (our six-week-old son) while I get my sandwich" she said.
I had him balanced between my left elbow and shoulder and was reaching again for the ham sandwich when I noticed a streak of mustard on my fingers...
I love mustard.
 
I had no napkin.
I licked it off.
 
It was not mustard.
No man ever put a baby down faster.
It was the first and only time I have sprinted with my tongue protruding out.
With a washcloth in each hand, I did the sort of routine shoeshine boys do, only I did it on my tongue.
Later, after she stopped crying from laughing so hard, my wife said, "Now you know why they call that fancy mustard Poupon". 
           
When you stop laughing, pass it on.

Note: I still have tears running down my face. I hope you enjoy your day!

A wonderful community concept in New Zealand.
Community housing often gets a bad rap for being poorly designed and a blot on the urban landscape. These two modest, ecofriendly homes, by Strachan Group Architects, sit on a shared site west of Auckland, New Zealand, and defy that stereotype. Designed by a team of architecture students under the guidance of Dave Strachan, a former builder and now award-winning architect, the homes incorporate elements of green design but go a step further by em...

Story
Introduction
Let me introduce myself.

I spend more time reading than posting. And I love to see items that make me smile.
I have been know to post a joke or two. I also post my bad photos, which have been improving thanks to the wonderful people here.
I do not claim to be an expert at anything, but I do put in my 2¢. And I make many typing errors.
I follow many different people, in many different fields. Most do not follow me, and I am not offended by this. After all I will never claim to be an expert.
I am a human who makes many errors, that happens to sell books, jewelry and whatnot online.

I am WhatnotShops and WhatnotGems on Twitter and at present run 3 online stores. While attempting to establish a brand I easily get distracted by conversations.

My life:  Primary care giver and online retailer.

Service was quick. Food lacked flavor. fried dumplings were greasy, all breading Egg roll lacked filling and also greasy General Tso Chicken was bland and greasy. Steamed rice the only edible part of the meal. Over all very dissatisfied.
