Talk About It Tuesday – Penguins, Wine & Peanut Butter

Welcome to Talk About It Tuesday. Today is Valentine’s Day!  Happy V-Day you love doves!  I figure there will be a lot of mooey gooey Valentine’s Day posts out there, so we’re gonna stick to the wackos.

Last week was a lot of fun!  I really enjoy finding these crazy articles and sharing them with you. Last week we talked about spiders with detachable man parts and gamers dying to play another round of their favorite video game.  Literally. This week we have penguins, wine and peanut butter…

Roast Beef the Penguin is going to old age homes to help the elderly smile.  Roast Beef loves the attention and looks forward to his visits. He is 13 and acclimated to visiting children, but did very well on his first visit at the Hannah Duston Rehabilitation Center in Haverhill, Mass.

Let’s just say you are having a bad day.  Maybe you just lost your job as a bacon inspector at the local Oink-A-Boink and you’re really down on your luck.  Well, find a cat to sit with, a dog to pet or a penguin to plop in your lap.  According to Psychology Today, pets makes us feel better!

Off to Connecticut we go to discuss wine thieving irony.  OK, you’re looking for a good bottle of wine but don’t have the cash to buy it, you say.  Well, you could do what Mark Clark of New Haven, Conn. did and thieve the wine from Wine Thief.  I do not recommend this because, well, stealing is illegal pretty much all over the world (and probably Jupiter, too).  It’s probably easier to panhandle for a couple of hours to get a bottle of booze, but where’s the fun in that?

Does it get anymore ironic than that? Well, it gets weirder.  In Kentucky, a 23-year-old man was found inside a convenience store naked, covered in peanut butter and chocolate.  So, I guess technically, he wasn’t naked. Apparently, the Reese’s imposter knew he was acting out of character.  He wrote an apology on the floor of the market in liquid NyQuil.

I seriously cannot make this stuff up. Well, actually I could, but it would be way time-consuming and would require mass amounts of LSD.  I have access to neither of those.  So I just troll news pages and share all the quirky stuff with you guys!

Hope everyone is over indulging in chocolate and rose petal bubble baths.. or at least chowing down on a candy bar while sitting next to a scented candle. 😀

Thank you so much for joining me for Talk About It Tuesday.

  1. Animals absolutely can be a key player in helping folks get through all sorts of adversity. Have heard many success stories of placing them in hospitals, homes, etc. and letting them “weave their magic!”

    I must know – are flower petal baths for real? I must be the least romantic guy in the world for saying this – but is that really a thing? If so, I am definitley incorporating a flower petal bath death scene into my next project. I can see it now…the pink and lavender [petals slowling turning crimson as the bath fills with blood. 🙂

  4. Ok, the peanut butter guy just cracked me up!

  5. ROFL!! Seriously – insanity! The Reese guy…OMG…busted a gut!!! Who are these people, eh?!?!? LOL!!! Love it Darlene!!!

  1. […] week we talked about an adorable penguin named Roast Beef and a dude who slathered his naked self in chocolate and peanut butter.  As a writer, it is important for me to observe human behavior. I am sure all my writer friends […]
