Three Unrelated Ridiculous Things: Part II

These things pop into my brain and I just have to share them. Here are three more unrelated ridiculous things I have been exposed to as of late.

Trump

1. Donald Trump’s latest quote on leadership: “If I say do it, they’ll do it. That’s what leadership is.” As much as I try to avoid getting political on this blog, this was too ridiculous not to make the list. I have studied leadership styles quite a bit (I have a master’s in organizational leadership) and nowhere did anyone other than Hitler and Jim Jones make “leading” people sound this easy.

2. People’s obsession with granite countertops on HGTV. I love watching HGTV shows, but sometimes the people on them just drive me bananas. It could be a rat-infested dump and as long as it has granite countertops, people are more than willing to overlook the problems.

3. The Foo Fighters’ special announcement video. Unlike the first two items on this list, this one is ridiculous in a good way. I watched this super early Thursday morning before work and it put me in a good mood for the entire day. Watch as the Foo Fighters hilariously dispel rumors that they are breaking up. Caution: Profanity.

Three Unrelated Ridiculous Things

Just for the fun of it, I have compiled three completely unrelated things I have recently observed and find to be ridiculous.

Oprah

1. Oprah’s “Ode to Bread” on her recent Weight Watcher’s ad campaign. Don’t get me wrong, I love bread, too, but Oprah takes it all to a new level. She goes on and on about how obsessed she is with bread. It is awkward and painful to watch.

2. Pee Wee Pumps. While the baby boudoir photo is kind of an exaggeration of how these would really be worn, it proves my point that these things are truly ridiculous. I suppose most babies would pair these with a classic pencil skirt, pantyhose, and a tasteful tailored blouse, but, guess what, still ridiculous. If this is your cup of tea, they are available at peeweepumps.com.

Prince

3. Prince’s passport photo. This one is really more impressive than ridiculous, but I included it because it made me stop and say “what?!” The photo recently went viral because Prince really knows how to work the camera, even when renewing his passport. In my own passport photo I look washed out and chunky. I’m also wearing a navy blue cardigan with the United States Postal Service emblem on the lapel because I showed up wearing a sleeveless shirt and the lady told me “you have to cover your shoulders or they won’t let you into Middle Eastern countries.” I didn’t think to tell her that I have no desire to travel anywhere I can’t wear a sleeveless top. Prince clearly doesn’t worry about those things.
