Pinteste Round-up: PSA

0 Posted by - October 17, 2013 - Pinteste Round-ups

Before we begin today, one of the Pintestes has a PSA for you.

jadestormcloud • Important safety advice.

drinkandslice

Indeed. (That advice comes to you via last week’s video.)

Franziska Külbel • Okay, so, this is kinda inappropriate and weird but it’s not as if that has ever stopped anybody on this blog before… why do you get diarrhea from eating apple peels? Is that some American thing? Sorry but I’m really curious now!

Hrm. This is one of those awkward “Right? Right? Just me?… Oh…” moments I guess, because I thought eating a ton of apple peels gave everyone diarrhea. Perhaps it’s just my very special digestive tract. (To be fair, lots of things give me diarrhea– caffeine, dairy, thinking about going to the gym…)

I think I failed you guys on the pumpkin spice krispie treats.

Ali • What? You didn’t do penis shaped rice krispie treats? Pumpkin orange penis. I would pay to see that shit.

The thought honestly never crossed my mind. I think I need to get that checked.

You guys need some wisdom about women? Of course you do. Read the post (it’s short), then come back here.

kittnen • This quote has the two biggest lessons my parents ever taught me. My dad taught me how to fix cars, do minor plumbing and other household repairs so that I would never have to rely on a man to do it for me. My mom taught me to punch people in the throat if they make comma splices.

I would just like to say bravo on the execution of that comment. Relevant to the post, nice set-up with a heartwarming touch, and fantastic, unexpected punchline. 10 out of 10.

This one from the caramel apple cider posts gets a perfect score too, just because:

Kelly724 • There was this liquor store I used to go to and the owner just sat in the back and drank all day, so a lot of time she didn’t keep up with ordering. She also hired idiots that thought that white zinfandel was actually white, and would actually stare at the white wine for about 10 sold minutes looking for it. That idiot was me, by the way. The liquor store closed after being open less than a year. I wonder why. Anyway, maybe you went to a place like that.

<LOVEFEST> Shit guys. I think you should maybe be writing this blog, not me. I have always maintained that the comments are the best part of this site, and you all continually prove that.

Let’s talk about poop some more, because that’s fun.

Denise Plank • So basically, autumn gives you the runs?

As mentioned above, pretty much everything gives me the runs, but yeah, let’s add autumn to the list.

Guys, don’t forget to start planning now for the Christmas Pintester Movement! Everyone can join. You don’t even really need a blog (although it’s easier if you have one). You can even join if you don’t like Christmas. Just a few ground rules…

Trystan • i’m really sad that nobody wants my sequin swastika ornaments. :'(

Can’t please everybody all the time, I guess.

Also, thanks everyone for voting for me last week! This week I’m the Vlogger of the Week at Vlog Union! Not sure what the perks are besides having the most unflattering picture of me ever plastered on their Facebook wall, but hey. I won.

(Just a note: If you are a blogger, be sure to add your blog URL to the Disqus profile you’re using to comment here. That way I can link to your blog! I wanna give you the love, yo.)

    You should have heard me say “merlot”. I had no idea that there was a silent t.

      Oh, man, you should’ve heard me say “pinot grigio.” I mangled it worse than I used to mangle “quinoa.”

      • Toshia October 18, 2013 - 6:16 pm Reply

        Wine I can pronounce, food, not so much. Quinoa “Quinn-No-Ah) Aspartame “A-Sparta-Meh” and I love food more.

    Now I feel really sorry that I put you (and your digestive system) on the spot like this… but in case that helps you: We all poop. We all have runny poop sometimes. It sucks but it’s not just you!

  • mmansell October 17, 2013 - 1:34 pm Reply

    Yet another reason I adore this blog…

  • I’m not admitting who I am October 17, 2013 - 1:44 pm Reply

    I dunno about apple peels, but I DO know that beer turns me into freakin Volcano. Only, you know, one that spews vile brown stuff and not burning lava. At least I don’t have to deal with lava on my sphincter.

    Apple peels totally make me poop… and bleed internally! I am allergic to yeast, and it is on the peels of EVERYTHING. Yea, talking about pooping in public arenas!

  • kittnen October 17, 2013 - 2:48 pm Reply

    Don’t even talk to me about pooping. I’m a lactose intolerant girl who refuses to give up all of the wonderful things that make life worth living (namely, cheese). I have no shame in public restrooms.

    Ehhh, my understanding is that too much fruit causes the runs. Never personally experienced it, but fiber does cause things to stir and one apple is like 20% of your daily fiber need, so….

    • Crystal Kelly Yzaguirre October 17, 2013 - 6:03 pm Reply

      i learned today that blackberries have a TON of fiber in them. Like one serving has twice as much fiber as an apple. Fun fact.

  • Crystal Kelly Yzaguirre October 17, 2013 - 6:02 pm Reply

    for some reason that last one gave me a fuck ton of chuckles.

  • ThetaSigma October 17, 2013 - 7:08 pm Reply

    Huh, I’ve never eaten enough apples to determine if it gives me the shits. I usually eat one and go, “you know, I’m good for a year now” (UNLESS it’s in pie or crisp form, but I’m not sure it counts then). Apricots, now, fuck, those things are delicious and I love them and I’ll eat like 20 in one go and then wonder why I can’t stop going.

    I made round up again! First it was for Benedict Cumberbatch & then for pumpkin orange penis. Now to just combine the two…

    • Sandi Boyd October 21, 2013 - 10:32 am Reply

      oh please, please do!

  • Sandi Boyd October 18, 2013 - 12:42 am Reply

    while sad that my “wet spot” comment didn’t make the round up, I must admit that the comments that did FULLY deserved the top marks they received! I believe that like attracts like, girl – you wouldn’t have such gifted commentators if you were not so gifted in your words, yourself! Can’t wait for the next installment!!

    • Dar Hamill October 18, 2013 - 7:33 am Reply

      I remember reading your wet spot comment and i totally thought “That’s gonna make the round up!” 🙂

  • Ethne Hedren Denham October 18, 2013 - 10:39 am Reply

    I’m fairly certain it’s the fiber in apple peels that causes the runs. Fiber is usually a good thing, so in moderation, it shouldn’t be a problem. You must be eating a shit-ton of applies, girl. I, also, have a crap-ass (literally) digestive tract, so it’s hard to predict. My doc said I have a “lazy gut”. True story.

    That’s why my dad calls it “The Green Apple Trots”! TMI???

  • Trystan October 19, 2013 - 7:50 pm Reply

    i made the roundup! yay!

    Recently I was really, really low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – rf2y
