Library Staff Proves ‘Synchronized Shelving’ Needs To Be In Olympics

Maybe the Olympics oughta take a page out of these guys’ books. 

A video shared on the New Zealand’s Invercargill City Libraries and Archives’ Facebook page features some of its staff participating in “synchronized shelving.” 

After seeing the video, you’ll probably agree with the video’s description, saying there should be a petition to get the “sport” added as an Olympic event.

Watch as the “athletes” put the pizzazz into their shelving duties, performing a fabulous routine with coordinated arm movements and book tosses. It all looks pretty spectacular ― disregarding that little tumble at the 13-second mark. 

Unfortunately, though the crew didn’t get perfect scores from their tough-critic colleagues they definitely won gold in our hearts. 

So seriously, folks. Let’s make synchronized shelving a thing.

Apparently Neiman Marcus Sells Ridiculously Expensive Food, Including Bougie Tamales

We need to talk about the weird gourmet food you can buy on department stores’ websites.

After reading about Neiman Marcus charging an insane $92 for tamales, we decided to do some further digging. We didn’t even know Neiman Marcus sold tamales. Apparently, they also sell full on, pre-made meals. 

It’s not strange for department stores to sell goods like individually wrapped chocolates, candies, or olive oil with gold flakes in it. Reasonably, these are items you’d want to gift and include in an ornate basket of some kind. You know, one for those old friends from high school that have purposefully decided to procreate and invite you to the celebration of their progeny.

Those gift baskets don’t baffle us. This $410 Stuffed Pork Crown Roast ― plus an extra $32 for shipping ― however, does baffle us. 

The roast “comes with 3 pounds of dried cherry and roasted pecan dressing,” but what we really want to know is: What else is this roast doing for us that it costs $410?

Some thoughts that come to mind:

Does the roast come with a bottle of Dom Perignon? Where does it come from? Will this make my Aunt Helen love me?

We asked Neiman Marcus where they get their foods, like this roast, and a spokesperson told The Huffington Post that they get them from “a variety of different vendors.” They told us they curate what they sell by inviting vendors to send samples to their “buyers to taste and then the buying team determines what they consider the very best that [they] can offer.”

While we figure out how we can get a job as a buyer so we can just eat luxurious roasts all day, let’s discuss the price point of this specific roast.

We know roasts aren’t cheap if you buy them from any old grocery store, but this is just nonsensical. The description says the roast arrives “fully cooked and frozen” but it doesn’t seem to come with a chef who’ll thaw and cook it for us. 

Also, if you must forsake your local grocery store and insist on buying a roast online, why wouldn’t you just get this Amazon roast? While 2 pounds smaller and sans cherry and pecan dressing, it costs a mere $89.99 and the shipping cost is also lower!

So, who is it ― who is buying a roast on the internet?

We all have at least two people in our lives that we fake friendship with who would probably buy this roast, but let’s pretend they’re not real for just a second. Who looks at items, like this roast, and thinks, “Yes, that interweb food is what we need for dinner?”

Well, we’ve found two of those people and they are NOT happy.

On Saks’ offering of Linda’s Gourmet Latkes, 24 latkes and one apple sauce jar for just $47.95, a reviewer let it all out. Disregard for just a moment that Trader Joe’s potato pancakes are just $1.99 for a pack of 8.

“Theodora B.” left the review you see below and really did not like the latkes. She found them “tough and dry after baking” and recommends going to your local Polish deli to find better ones.

Theodora wasn’t alone in her distaste for her gourmet meal online-shopping purchase. 

“Gretchen1” purchased the Brussels Sprouts Au Gratin and left a scathing review after not receiving what she ordered.

“I planned this for a dinner party when I stirred it realized it was a squash casserole,” she wrote in her review. “Really ended up in a mess — not very happy- sorry but will not order again.”

It looks like you may need to go offline for your side dishes, folks. The web seems to be a wicked place for small plates.

Have you bought one of these gourmet meals online? We’d love to hear all about it. You can reach the author at: jenna.amatulli@huffingtonpost.com.

We’d all like to be equal parts warm-hearted humility and iron-clad confidence. But the truth is, when the time comes to interact with a human you’re attracted to, most of us exist somewhere in the murky middle, stumbling over words and being awkward.

Comedy duo Future Boyfriends understand the panic that sets in when someone attractive takes an interest in you.

Patrick Dempsey Somehow Started Talking About Erections On TV And Didn’t Even Know It

Call Shonda Rhimes because things are getting McDreamy McSteamy up in here.

Patrick Dempsey embarrassed himself on Australian television show “Today” Sunday morning after he accidentally talked about erections. The 50-year-old was trying to show off his knowledge of Aussie slang, but things got a little lost in translation.

“Traveller,” Dempsey volunteered, while the co-hosts and his “Bridget Jones’s Baby” co-star Renée Zellweger laughed. “Traveller’s a beer you travel with, right?”

“You’re not supposed to say that,” one of the hosts said, while another insisted he was probably thinking of the word “roadie.” 

“What’s a traveller? Have I just alienated everyone in the country?” the actor asked as everyone continued laughing over his goof. One of the hosts made a joke about the mishap, saying, “All the blokes who are watching are sitting up right now.” 

Dempsey couldn’t leave well enough alone and continued asking, “What the heck is a traveller?” until one of the hosts whispered what it meant in his ear. According to Urban Dictionary, a traveller is “the boner you get whilst traveling long distances” or while riding public transportation. 

“Oh, excuse me,” Dempsey said. But what he should have said was:

5 Words That Are Nearly Impossible To Pronounce In Spanish

Being bilingual has its fair share of benefits, but truly mastering a second language isn’t always as easy as it seems. 

And Buzzfeed’s Pero Like YouTube channel put some Latinos’ Spanish skills to the test recently. In a video, posted Saturday, participants were given five Spanish words that are particularly difficult to pronounce: Trastorno, idiosincrasia, otorrinolaringólogo, parangaricutirimícuaro, and hipopotomonstrosesquipedaliofobia. 

Yup, those are doozies, even for native speakers. Despite the difficulty some managed to make their parents proud. 

“My dad always use to tell me, this is how you know if you can speak Spanish. If you can say parangaricutirimícuaro,” said one participant in the video. 

But others hilariously failed in their attempts to pronounce the words. 

“You know what, that’s a skip. I can’t do that,” said another participant.

Check out the full video above and see if you can do better.

Donald Trump’s entire campaign has been a massive publicity stunt that has gotten completely out of hand. Trump’s candidacy has never been more serious than Pat Paulsen’s, Roseanne Barr or Stephen Colbert (As noted in my previous ‘Andrew Dice Clay For Vice-President!’). The Huffington Post had it right in the first place when they initially covered him as ‘Entertainment.’ In the days before inane reality programming blurred the lines between satire and stupidity, Paulsen’s campaign was obviously taken as a political statement about the duplicity of the Nixon administration. Colbert made it clear from the outset that he was only joking. And Roseanne Barr might have been delusional enough to think the public would accept a loud, slovenly housewife as President. But reality star, and seemingly serious businessman Donald Trump, offered a more plausible optic. Then, taking a page from Madonna’s past egotistical self-promotion, playing political ‘Truth or Dare’ for exposure, rating’s hungry ‘news’ outlets played along with the consummate con-man, accidently fooling a large gullible section of the public into thinking he was for real.

Like Madonna’s controversial and outlandish statements and behavior kept her in the headlines and sold millions of records, Trump has reveled in the spotlight building his brand. But unlike Madonna, who actually had talent and the ability to back up her braggadocio with performance, Trump suddenly finds himself in the deep end of a public pool, treading water and unable to get out. So what does he do now?

At this point, with the adulation of his pep rallies keeping his ego afloat, he’s already gone farther and longer than he probably ever expected. He can’t go back, and getting out of the pool would only reveal that the emperor had no clothes in the first place. So he might as well hang in there, tugging on Hillary every so often to keep his head above water. Meanwhile the dumbed-down media continues to cover the campaign like a sporting event, creating and exploiting controversy whenever possible to sell more advertising at the expense of democracy.

In the end, if some terrorist title wave or Russian email submarines Hillary with the aid of contrived attention grabbing headlines, Trump probably figures he can then pull himself out, hide the campaign funds he didn’t spend on advertising in the Caimans, declare personal bankruptcy, license his name to the White House, then hire professionals with taxpayer financing to do the job he was never qualified for in the first place.
