My friend Stef shared this video with me yesterday. We are both major foodies (ya’ll better be following her kick-ass culinary school blog!) so she knew I would get a few laughs out of this video!
Several weeks (maybe even months) ago I discovered hilarious videos on YouTube –
Sh*t ___ Says. You can practically fill in the blank with whatever because I can almost guarantee there’s a video for it. For example: Sh*t Girls Say, Sh*t Guys Say, Sh*t Fat People Say, Sh*t College Freshmen Say, and the list goes on and on. As politically incorrect as some of the videos might be, they also hold so much truth. It’s insane that so many people say the things they say. So when I watch these videos, I can’t help but say “yes, I’ve heard so many college freshmen say that…”
A friend of mine sent me this video Sh*t New Yorkers Say… and man oh man is this video right on target with what New Yorkers say. If you’re a NY’er you’ll laugh too!
Below is a list of things that are in the video and I will admit that I say them often:
“Where’s the train!?” (Something I say on a daily basis if I’m standing on a platform for more than 2 minutes.)
“Ugh. Tourists.” (Something I say Monday through Friday when I am obligated to be in Midtown for work. Midtown=tourist spots= times square=not the real New York)
“Ugh, I just bought this!” (Always referring to an umbrella.)
“All I ate today was…”
“I just read that in the Times!” (Always referring to a restaurant or a book, in my case.)
“This place is huge!” (These words come out of practically everyone’s mouths when they see an apartment that is 500 square feet or bigger.. yup, no joke. And I found myself saying it obnoxiously when I visited my friends new apartment the other week.)
“DON’T HIT ME!” (Surprisingly enough, speeding taxis don’t scare me… It’s the out of towners trying to drive around the city that spook the daylights out of me.)
“Cash only!?” (And a place that’s cash only will go out of business in a matter of weeks.)
“I don’t go to Queens” (Some people might not realize how gigantic Queens is… Yes you can live in areas that are easy for commuters, but the borough is huge and turns into a spread out, far from everything sort of place.)
“They’re filming Law & Order” (I think I say this at least once a month… Law & Order does a lot of filming in my neighborhood, Chelsea. It’s very common for me to walk out of my apartment building to find celebrity trailers set up all down my block.)
“Ohhh, I hate L.A.” (This is true. No one wears black and you need a car to go anywhere. Enough said.)
“I forget that guy’s name” (You meet so many people in such a short amount of time in NYC It’s the worst when you can’t remember someone’s name!)
“I want a dog… but it wouldn’t be fair!” (So true. There’s not enough space to own a dog in Manhattan, and there are nights where you are out so late it just isn’t realistic to get a pup.)
A co-worker sent me this video. I have no clue why, but we both laughed when we watched it! Be sure to turn your sound on on your computer before you hit “play.” Hope you get a chuckle out of it too!
This poor poor mother of 2 little boys apparently spent a few extra minutes in the bathroom — and look what happened to her house! Her children took one bag of flour and destroyed everything! So for the future, keep the cleaning products locked up… as well as the flour.
Usually when I watch ESPN it’s either at the end of the day after work, or it’s on a Saturday afternoon or early evening when I’m ready to watch my fellow Nittany Lion’ers take the field for a game. I get little butterflies in my stomach whenever the Nittany Lion mascot takes the field before the start of each game — it’s like I am a freshman watching a game for the first time in the student section. I am always so excited to cheer my team on, I think everyone who has ever attended a Big 10 school feels the same way. I’m preparing myself for this Saturday’s game, a game that I actually was hoping to watch live, but after the recent happenings I just can’t bring myself to make the trek to Happy Valley.
At work, I even have a photo at my desk of three people that I looked up to while at Penn State: my academic adviser, my favorite journalism professor, and Joe Paterno. Joe Paterno was a role model for so many students — of course he’s in this photo on my desk. I can’t even bring myself to ponder too long about the current events that involve him. I have unfortunately put a Post It note over his face on the picture. Because if I look at him, I want to scream “WHY, JOE!? WHY DIDN’T YOU GO TO THE POLICE?!” I really hope that he answers this question to the public. Penn State students, alums, his football players, and especially the victims of this horrendous incident — they all deserve to get answers.
A good friend of mine, wrote an unbelievable post on his blog yesterday about his feelings on the whole Sandusky incident — his writing is beautiful and I just can’t even gather my words the way he did on the issue that is happening up at Penn State right now. So, please read what he has to say, because I completely agree with him.
My friend and I met while at Penn State, I’ll never forget the day actually… It was the first day of our sophomore year and we were seated in front of our computers in a small classroom in the Sparks building. It was the first day of our Communications 260W class (W stands for “writing”) aka “Basic News Writing” which is a mandatory class for all who are graduating in the communications department. We teamed up instantly with each other, realizing that we were really the only ones in the class that knew basic news writing skills. We celebrated so much together while at Penn State, had so many laughs, and we spent years in the newsroom together… and we are both still friends living in New York City. He’s a fabulous sports writer and I am sure you will all be blown away by his writing in his post “Say It Ain’t So Joe…”
There’s one thing that will forever be engraved in my memory during my 4 years at Penn State University, and that’s all of the school spirit. There wasn’t a day that would go by where you wouldn’t hear the words “WE ARE?” screamed. I also can’t remember a single student or faculty member that wouldn’t answer the question back, which was, “PENN STATE!” I also remember Joe Paterno saying “SUCCESS WITH HONOR.”
I am embarrassed for all of the kids currently up at University Park. They have been encouraged by the professors that educate them and the athletic teams that they cheer on are their motivation to achieve. So many questions are going through so many minds right now — whether they are in the minds of the students or alums that donate their money to the school every year. Imagine your tuition money going towards defending men who are clearly guilty? How would that make you feel?
Happy Valley is officially not so happy right now. It’s such a shame what the school is going through… because the school isn’t just a great facility for athletes to be spending their college years at, but the education is one that so many wish they could have. I hope that high school kids will still consider going to Penn State, even though the school is currently struggling and developing a reputation that will never be forgotten.
I keep thinking that Joe Paterno could never have been in the wrong for something so detrimental and sickening. But right now, I just don’t know what the truth is. Before all of this happened it was obvious to many that football with Joe Paterno at Penn State would come to an end. I don’t think anyone has ever thought he would resign, I’m sure we all pretty much thought that he would drop dead before ever walking away from his team to retire. There’s something about seeing JoePa on the field at every game that makes so many happy. I’m still in such shock that this will most likely be the reason why Joe Paterno will ultimately leave Penn State.
There’s a saying, there are three sides to every story: there’s his side, there’s the other side, and there’s the truth.
I can’t believe all of these children have lived with the horrific memory of being sexually abused all through their childhood and now early adulthood. I hope there’s justice.
I have to share this hilarious video with you all… there’s nothing like a great laugh. (My favorite kids are the last ones at the very end.)
