Last week, hemajangshowed off his recognition skeelz by correctly guessing Liliha Bakery from a photo of condiments. How the!? Please help me congratulate bruddah hemmaz.

Much like our Philly version of WIHIES, we'll make this week's contest a lil' more challenging and make y'all guess on more than just 1 photo. This time, we gots 6! Oh yeah! Perhaps it'll last longer than an hour now? :P Ah, we shall see...

Like before, no worries. Even if you've never been to Frisco, I'll have hints for each photo. Using Googs and the rest of the `ohana's guesses will help some lucky winnah solve the puzzle that is WIH, er WISF. Go getum cuz!

Hints: (Photo 1) - The background does not reflect the sign. I'm looking for what it says on the sign. 8) (Photo 2) - P2P. (Photo 3) - SoMa. (Photo 4) - I dunno. Read the sign for a hint? (Photo 5) - Hmm... I shouldn't make it that easy should I? (Photo 6) - Statue has nothing to do with the location, but perhaps it counts as "eye candy" for rayboyjr:P

Envelopes and Stamps

Sorry for being shmall kine MIA gang. Just flew back from San Fran/Reno/Sac-town and boy are my arms tired. Yeah, ok, LAME! I know. Sorry. Anyway, I only had time for a quickie post today, so I'm a-passin' on this info I got forwarded to me via email. Not sure how true it is (Snopes says it's not), but a good way to start off this Fun Day Monday nonetheless don'tcha think? BTW, if you are the type to easily get grossed out, you may wanna scroll at your own risk. ;) Have a good week y'all!

A woman was working in a post office in California. One day she licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge.

That very day the lady found a cut on her tongue. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue.

World Wide Ed

She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong.. Her tongue was not sore or anything.. A couple of days later, her tongue started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done.

The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!!

World Wide Ed

There were cockroach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva, which was warm and moist... This is a true story reported on CNN!

Andy Hume wrote: "Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You wouldn't believe the things that float around in those gum applicator trays. I haven't licked an envelope for years!"

I used to work for a print shop (32 years ago), and we were told NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why until I had to go into storage and pull out 2500 envelopes that were already printed and saw several squads of cockroaches roaming around inside a couple of boxes with eggs everywhere. They eat the glue on the envelopes.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS!
After reading this you will never lick another envelope or stamp again.

(No, don't actually pass it along cause it appears to be a hoax, but do feel free to chat it up in the comment area below :P ).

P.S. The Colbie Caillat interview went really well (stay tuned for the video). She's such a sweet, genuine individual and I wish her all the best! Who shall I interview next? :)

Fave Friday - Hawaii's Best 24 Hour Eateries?

September 18th, 2009

[This topic was a special request by the BIL (Brutha-In-Law). Please help a brutha out. (yeah, literally, my brother) :P ]

Later this year, the shift at BIL's job will be changing from "normal" to dracula-like, overnight hours. Other than the complete lifestyle change, one of his main concerns was where to grind after work. He'll be getting off of work when the rest of us non-zombies will be just waking up, so his "dinner" would essentially be in the wee hours of the morning!

So how about it? Where are your picks for the best 24 hour eateries around Oahu? My pea-sized brain can only think of the easy standards like Zippy's and Like Like (yeah, I meant to spell it like that ! :P ). What else y'all got?

P.S. Happy VHO7V Friday and have a good weekend y'all! I'll be back in a couple weeks. Wish me luck with sistah Colbs. Shoots!

Sorry rayboyjr. We be back to a non-"eye candy" pic this week, but last week was fun for ALL nonetheless... no? 8) Bruddah Takeshi got another WIH victory under his belt by correctly guessing Waianapanapa State Park in the mysterious beach shot where few noticed the black sand. :lol:

This week, I think/hope we've got a toughy. It could be just about any breakfast/lunch/dinner spot in the world state. Let's see how skilled y'all are wit' dis one. :mrgreen:

Hurrrrr we goooooo!
