Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are well known online for their very real presentation of parenting. They don't sugar coat their lives for social media, and that includes talking about their kids.


Chrissy Teigen recently talked with People about how important it is that parents support each others' decisions and share the role of the "bad guy."

"You just have to be on the same page all the time because it's not fair when there's one bad person [or] a bad guy."
"No one wants to be the bad guy, so it's helpful when you're all the bad guy. It's important to be on the same page."



The couple support each other's decisions, sometimes leading to sharing the "bad guy" role.

Chrissy's mom, Vilailuck (a.k.a. Yai), is also part of this process.


Chrissy said that Luna will sometimes approach one of the three, then not liking their decision, approach one of the others to try to get a different answer.

"Luna thinks she can get away with things with us or take things to certain people."
"I'm like, 'No, we're all in this together. Sorry, we're on the same page. If Yai says you need to apologize for this, I'm gonna say the same thing,'"

This tendency to go from one parent to another to get a better answer is something that a lot of kids try.

There is a pretty common stereotype in heterosexual couples that dads are the "fun" parents, the ones more likely to let kids get away with something, while moms are in charge of discipline and saying "no."

The couple's method of sharing that "bad guy" role leads to more consistent parenting.

Teigen did say that John is still the "easier" of the two, but only when it's "meaningless stuff" like letting Luna have string cheese 20 minutes before dinner.

Teigen joked about that particular incident during the interview:

"But I'll be like, 'Oh, you're having string cheese for dinner. Okay, well, it's 20 minutes until dinner, now you're gonna be full.'"
"And when you talk to the kids you're really talking to your husband. You're like, 'Well, you shouldn't have had that 20 minutes before dinner because Mommy is making fish sticks, but I guess you're gonna be a little full now!"

Social media users love how open Teigen and Legend are about the realities of parenting.

Teigen's frank posts about their lives together are a refreshing change from the picture perfect versions many people portray.



Legend seems to be following through with what he said in a 2016 interview with Entertainment Tonight before Luna was born:

"I'm not one of those people that's like 'well my boy can do anything he wants, and then my girl's gotta, you know, be in the convent."

He said that it was more important to him to teach his future kids to be confident, "good people."

That's the way all parents should be!

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
