HNT-Useless Skill #3- Spooning

Ok, it was suggested that both arching a single eyebrow and tongue rolling might have actual real life applications of value. To be honest I must admit I have used them both for my advantage. I promise, I only use my powers for good, never evil....Ok, Ok, I have used them in wicked ways (Mwahahahaha!!!!) but you just don't understand the burden of these powers unless you possess them.


Continuing with the theme of 'skills no one cares to see on your resume,' allow me to demonstrate the hanging of spoons from the end of one's nose. Beginners should stick (pun intended) to plastic spoons as they weigh much less and adhere with ease. Progressing along with the demitasse, one may increase size and weight until balance is easily achieved and hang time can exceed 10 seconds. Eventually you may move to a heavy gauge teaspoon and for those with especially prominent or gifted probosci, soup spoons. The use of any artificial adhesives is strictly forbidden.

Though I have not progressed as far as soup spoons, I hope I have sufficiently established my expertise. It is particularly notable that I was able to dangle the spoon, cross my eyes AND take the picture at the same time.


*No spoons or Limes were harmed during the production of this HNT.


Happy HNT!

Very nice. Your apparent lack of talen amazes me. Maybe amazing people is your talent. ha!

Happy HNT darlin

Schadeboy said...

I think this is one of the most comical pictures I have seen from you. This is definitely one to keep in your personal journal. Your grandkids and their children need to see this.

And by the way, "glug glug" is definitely a profane term for those of us who have been turned into soda bottles.

Happy HNT!

Jericho said...

TequilaGirl said...

Happy HNT!
