Story from work today:
  • So I get asked all the time at work if my vintage military jacket is really my jacket and if I'm really in the military. Most of the time I tell the truth and say it's just from an antique shop, but it's real, however, today I really felt like messing with this one guy who asked...
  • Him:Is that your military jacket?
  • Me:No, it's my boyfriends.
  • Him:Your boyfriend is a sergeant?
  • Me:Yes, Sergeant James Barnes of the 107th.
  • Him:Oh wow!
  • Me:Yeah, he's been in the military for a while.
  • Him:How come you have his jacket if he's in the military?
  • Me:Oh, he's on leave for the week to spend the holiday with me. His best friend Steve is also on leave visiting with me. We're celebrating his birthday tomorrow!
  • Him:You must be so happy!
  • Me:Oh, I am! I'm very proud of my Bucky.
  • The man believed me, bought his things, and left. It's gonna be a great day when he watches Captain America.
Whistle Head Canon~

Imagine that goblins can’t whistle.  Besides speaking, they only know how to howl, snarl, growl, grunt, etc.  But they don’t know that fairies and elves CAN!  

What if Marianne discovers this and trolls Bog by randomly whistling when he’s not looking?

Marianne: *whistle-whistle-whistle*

Bog: *whirling around for the thousandth time*  “What the bloody hell IS that?!”

Marianne: “Gosh, I don’t know, Bog.  Must be a bird.”



Mullet Guy Whistles, Blows Minds

One fateful day in the late ‘80s, during the golden age of talk shows, a man wearing a great t-shirt and an even greater haircut spent two minutes and 35 seconds performing an act involving whistling, facial expressions, and a Hoagy Carmichael song. Like a viral Holy Grail, it sat dormant for years, waiting to be discovered. Presidents came and went, nations rose and fell, hip-hop was born and New Coke died. The world waited for it to return. 

And now, finally, it has.

Central Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pende, early 20th century

This small whistle displays a finely detailed head with bi-lobed coiffure similar to Pende masks.

I think the success of Roy’s system is less “I can find my wife in a crowd when we both make this noise” and is more “People in the crowd back away from my wife and I when we make this noise, thus making it easier to spot one another”.
