Mash-Up: Ugly Shoes, Dancing Around the World, & A Creepy Fact

Abandoned chair out in a field facing a haunted house

I’m inviting you to  take a tiny trip with into the Nothing Burger World of Whatever.


Why not?

I mean, unless you are 1)  decaying in your rocking chair waiting for Norman Bates to bring your supper from downstairs, 2)  pinned under a giant onyx waiting for the fire department to arrive, or 3) mad because your cat flushed your toilet a thousand times and ran up the water bill . . . you have a few minutes to waste.

This time . . .

See the ugliest strangest shoes on the planet.

Watch Matt dance.

Learn a Creepy Fact.

Interesting to note 

Women are actually altering their feet to wear high heels. I can see adding more cushion to the ball of a foot, or having a bunion removed if pain were an issue, but cutting off a little toe or altering the length of toes through surgery? E-gads!

Not surprisingly, the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons advise against foot procedures for purely cosmetic purposes.

Speaking of shoes, these are pretty ugly dramatic, yes?

Forget the Prozac

If you click into just one link on this blog, MAKE IT THIS ONE.  It remains my fav. It’s a few years old, but it never fails to make me smile.

What in the heck is so fascinating about an average dude who travels everywhere *and I mean everywhere* in the world and dances with the locals?


When I’m feeling blue, lousy, angry, or need a fix of s-o-m-e-t-h-i-n-g, I watch Matt dancing away like a clumsy clod with a big smile. Somehow, he’s inspiring.

He’s harder to find these days, and that’s a shame.

Here’s your creepy fact

Spider’s can’t chew. Instead, they insert poison fluid into their victim’s body until it turns to liquid, then they just suck it down.

Adding this one just for grins: A spider’s blood color is “light blue.”

Mash-Ups are fun. Smile!


Your opinion matters to me.


Just for fun . . .

My Prince Charming would never borrow unauthorized media.

  1. I actually got to dance with Matt when he came to Google in Mountain View, CA! He was awesome!!! Unfortunately, there were legal issues that got in the way of that segment being included in Matt’s dancing-round-the-world video that year. Still, I got to dance with him. Pretty cool 😀

    1. Did you really? I would love that! Did someone take a home movie of the event so you could at least see it? Thank you so much for telling us, Elizabeth. I personally know of no other human who danced with Matt!! You rock, girl! P.S. Was he as fun as he seems on video?

  2. Dancing Matt is so fun to watch! It always puts a smile on my face to see his videos. Such a simple idea that brings so much joy and cultural awareness to everyone who sees it.

    1. I agree! It makes me hopeful when I see Matt dancing with every kind of person that someday we will all get along in this crazy world! Good to hear from you, Tami!
