STRIKE A POSE

_We've all got a few pieces of clothing that we'll never throw away because they make us special. That t-shirt that snuggles in all the right places and magically hides all the WRONG places. Or that decades old (now vintage) top that is good for a laugh or comfort. _

Redditor ****KidsWifeJob **asked everyone to discuss those few particular articles of clothing that make you stand out in all the right ways.**

FASHION AND LEARNING GERMAN, THAT SCREAMS FUN!

i have a friend with a shirt that says "Vielleicht hättest du Deutsch lernen sollen" and anytime i someone asks him about it i giggle.__

THERE IS AN UNDISCOVERED DATING IDEA!

"I met my wife on Ancestry.com"

DON'T BE SO SENSITIVE!

I'm white and was given a shirt that says, "I <3 being black" while living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, a predominantly West Indian neighborhood.

I was nervous to wear it, because there were race driven riots there in the early 90s between the black and Lubavitch Jewish communities there.

Anyway, delighted to find black people loved it and would sometimes stop me to take a picture wearing that shirt.

Oddly enough, the only people the shirt offended were white people.

Found a picture of the shirt!

BRING IT TO "RUSSEL-MANIA"!!!

In high school our wrestling coaches name was Russell. He would always go around school asking people if they wanted to join the wrestling team. As a joke, the seniors on the team got a whole bunch of shirts printed with him on the front, looking serious, pointing at the person reading it. Underneath it said:

"You wanna Russell?!"

To this day I am super sad I never got one.

SPEAK THAT TRUTH!

I used to have a shirt that said "Eat right, exercise, die anyway". Wore it to the gym a lot. Was worth it.

BOB ROSS FOR 2020!

I have a t-shirt or Bob Ross painting the galaxy. It's pretty spectacular and I got it from Walmart and everyone loves it.

Since you guys seem to like it, here's the shirt for reference :)

SAVE THE GIRLS AND KEEP IT CLEVER!

I have a breast cancer awareness shirt from years ago that says "Stop the war in Myraq". Always takes people a second.

KEEP THE BEAT!!

I have a shirt with a drum set that says "The tempo is what I say it is." I go to a music school and the dean likes to remind me that that is not the case. Often by pointing at the shirt and saying, "No."

IF YOU GOT IT... FLAUNT IT!

I own a shirt with my own face on it. I've had it so long I don't even remember I'm wearing it most of the time. Nearly every time I wear it, someone asks me if I'm wearing a shirt with my own face on it, and the shame washes over me.

YOU'RE READING TOO MUCH INTO IT.

I used to have a shirt that said "narcissist," but it was mirrored so you could only read it in the mirror. Way too many people didn't understand that shirt.

YAY FOR ARMADILLOS!!

I have a heather grey sweatshirt from H&M with a dark grey Armadillo on it, and for some reason people lose their minds when I wear it. It never fails to get comments and it's not like I have a particular affinity for them.

SOMETIMES A PICK ME UP COMES IN THE LEAST EXPECTED PLACES.

I have a black windbreaker that says "insecurity" on the back. Security guards and people with low self esteem complement me on it regularly.

SEXY IS THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER.

My "OFF DUTY STRIPPER" t-shirt gets me some raised eyebrows and comments. I am a guy in his 40 with a dad bod.

SOMETIMES THE TRUTH IS ALL YOU NEED.

"End racism. Kill everyone."

Gotta love The Onion.

HISTORY IS IMPORTANT!

I have the Delaware Crossing of George Washington on my shirt with the print "Booze Cruise". Never fails to get compliments.

I'LL TAKE OVER EASY.

I have a shirt with a sad chicken looking at a plate of sunny side up eggs. It gets a really strong reaction from people. I always tell them he's sad because he ordered scrambled.

LEARNING ABOUT OTHER CULTURES IS IMPORTANT!

My shirt with a Byzantine Flag on it that says "1453 Worst year of my life."

Had to explain it so many times. But it's so fun to recall the story of Mehmet's siege of Constantinople and people are surprisingly interested so I keep wearing it. Just have to remember to wear it on May 29th.

BE ABLE TO USE YOUR TOOLS.

"This is not a drill" pointing to a picture of a hammer.

REMEMBER THE SIMPLER TIMES.

Vintage-looking campaign t-shirt that says "Nixon '78".

There are so many things wrong with this shirt that I find it interesting to see what people decide to mention.

HOW YOU DOIN'?

I'm 6'9" and have a shirt that says "Must Be This Tall To Ride" with a line across the chest. People walk up to me all the time measuring themselves not understanding the implication.

AND THEY SAY ROMANCE IS DEAD.

Met a guy wearing a shirt that said, "I guess you'll do". I ended up marrying him.

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?
