This Deli Has The Best Kids’ Menu Ever

If you’ve ever eaten at a restaurant with kids, you know they can’t always make decisions about what to eat … After all, they tend to love the same things: American standards like chicken tenders and hot dogs.

But even though they might be hungry, they may say things like, “I’m not hungry” or “I don’t want that.” (Once it’s in front of them, however, they change their minds, or take two bites and are full.)

Well, an eatery in Altoona, Pennsylvania, The Deli Mansion Park, came up with the perfect solution: The most honest—and funny—kid’s menu ever.

Reddit user nabced shared it, and we think it’s perfect.

The menu came out last September, according to deli manager Brian Stroh.

“The parents love it,” he told The Huffington Post, adding that the menu was inspired by actual kids.

“That’s what I hear when kids are here ordering with their parents,” he said. “I don’t know! I don’t care! I’m not hungry!”

We also love it, of course, and Redditors do, too. Here are some of the funniest reactions to the menu.

Yep.

Even if they will eat nothing else, no child can resist French fries. Hey, it’s not exactly nutritious, but at least they’re eating something.

Haha! (Smart!)

Getting to finish many an uneaten grilled cheese or bowl of mac and cheese is one of the best-kept secrets of parenthood!

Exactly!

This deli really knows its littlest customers.

So now you’ll know exactly what to order the next time you’re out to eat at a restaurant and your kiddo says, “I’m not hungry.” As for getting your child to actually eat what’s in front of them? Well, that’s a whole different story.

Sometimes getting kids to eat anything at a restaurant (so you can try to enjoy your own meal for five minutes!) is challenging enough. But if you’re feeling brave, you might even try to get them to eat something healthy.

We know, we know—it sounds impossible, but there are actually a few tricks you can use to get a couple of nutrients into your child while dining out.

Sure, maybe they won’t actually eat a whole salad, but you could order one and let them munch on the tomatoes and cucumbers while they wait for their entree. That way, at least they’ve had a couple bites of veggies before they tuck into a bowl of mac and cheese.

And if there are simply no entrees on the menu that appeal to your kiddos, you may be able to order a few simple side dishes—say some grilled chicken and an order of toast—and just make a meal out of that.

These five freezer meals can be made ahead of time–and in under an hour! There’s sure to be something to make every family member happy:

A Dad Leaves The Best Note Ever For His Messy Teens

Different parents have different ways of disciplining their children, and one father left the perfect note for his teenagers after finding unwashed dishes in the sink… again.

“My teenagers refuse to put their dishes in the dishwasher,” Redditor labuzan wrote in the online forum’s “funny” section. “So I put this above the sink.”

The note, posted in 2016, features none other than Liam Neeson’s character, Bryan Mills, from the action-thriller film “Taken.”

User “Labuzan” then combined his note with the ever-popular meme, “I Will Find You And I Will Kill You.”

Of course, the meme is based on the popular scene in “Taken” wherein Neeson’s character is on the phone with his daughter’s kidnappers.

What will user “Labuzan” do to punish his non-dish-washing teens, though? Every teen’s nightmare: Take away their phones and internet access. In his words, he’s “an expert in home wifi systems and cellular data plans.”

He says if the kids don’t clean up their mess, “I will look for you, I will find you… AND I WILL DISCONNECT YOU.”

Reddit/labuzan

Of course, Redditors ate it up.

One commenter wrote: “Liam Neeson in the 12th installment of the series, Taken: Internet Privileges.”

Another joked: “Taken 4: Granted.”

“Stop feeding them,” another commenter wrote.

“Best diet plan ever,” another said.

In a comment, Labuzan clarified that his kids are not bad people—they’re just messy.

“Actually, my kids have their s**t together. My oldest graduated high school a semester early and then got a 30 hour a week job to save money for college. My youngest has a 3.95 GPA in all IB classes and picked up a summer job for 30 hours a week. When it comes to the “big rocks” of life, they are squared away.”

They’re just… slobs.

Still, we think: Best. Note. Ever.

Does this meme ever get old? Here are some of our favorites:

“I don’t know who gave me the flu, but I will find you and kill you.”

Then there’s this one from a very serious “Walking Dead” fan who wrote: “I don’t care how close we are. I don’t care how much I love you. If you call me during the season premiere of Walking Dead I will find you and I will kill you.”

And this one created by a “Game of Thrones” fan who really does not want you to post spoilers from the leaked episodes until he has a chance to watch.

This Baby Pig Dancing To Rihanna’s ‘Work’ Will Make Your Day

I can’t even… I watched this video on my bus ride home from work and couldn’t help but snort. And then I showed it to the girl that sits next to me. I don’t know her name, but she’s nice, and she laughed at this cute little pig video too.

I can’t stop watching it. I hope it makes you as happy as it just made me.

Target Worker Details His First Week As A Cashier, And It’s Downright Hilarious

In my experience, interacting with people can be pleasant or downright awful. There’s really no middle ground. So, I honestly believe that only the bravest souls could ever work somewhere like Target.

This viral account of a cashier’s first week at Target is proving me right. While some interactions were positive, some were not so great. And all in all, you have to be ready to face whatever the day brings you. So, before ever applying to work at this store, make sure you’re up for the task.

This worker gave out stickers to toddlers and was also told of an incident where someone had pooped in the baby supplies aisle. And according to the post, it was likely not a child. Does this jobs have its ups and downs or what?

The cashier interacted with moms buying bras for their super-embarrassed 16-year-olds and 80-year old women. There was even one woman who couponed her way from a $220 bill to a $55 bill. Impressive.

Oh yeah, and did I mention that all of that happened on the first day? Read more of the accounts below.

And if you just can’t get enough of these wacky stories, keep checking out Kimpossibooty’s Tumblr page or view the accounts on Imgur to read about the entire week. There are plenty more tales of delight and terror where these came from. All in a day’s work, when you work at Target, I suppose.

Dog Hilariously Plays Dead Because He Doesn’t Want To Leave The Park

Like me not wanting to leave the warm comfort of my bed or a child refusing to leave the cereal aisle until she gets her frosted puffs, this dog doesn’t want to leave the park.

Posted by wipandco in 2013, this golden retriever loves the fresh air so much that he’s mastered the art of playing dead.

From gently being picked up and flopped over on his back, he plays the part better than Leo. Somebody get this guy an Oscar.

This Is Why You Shouldn’t Steal From The Fridge At Work

The products and services mentioned below were selected independent of sales and advertising. However, Simplemost may receive a small commission from the purchase of any products or services through an affiliate link to the retailer's website.

First of all, it’s not right to steal someone else’s lunch. We all know that. (Well, except maybe for the guys in Dilbert.) Secondly, as Forrest Gump once phrased it so eloquently; “You never know what you’re gonna get.” This has never been illustrated better than in the image below:

Stay away from the coffee creamer at work from funny


A Reddit user shared the image, with no word on whether the creamer was actually replaced with breast milk (any nursing mother knows how precious pumped milk is).

Also good to know: mold stops thieves cold. Or rather, fake mold. You can buy lunch baggies with fake mold on them. Unfortunately, Amazon is out of them at the moment:

Amazon also carries this humorous “Fridge Locker” for $19.95. In the description, it claims to work in the fridge, freezer or pantry. Simply set your own combination and keep your food safe from sticky fingers.

Now, we could get into a deep psychological debate on why people actually eat other people’s food. Most likely, it’s simply because they’re hungry and don’t have any cash on them at the time.

Mom Experiences A Time Travel Moment While Shopping With Her Son At Costco

One mom thought she was having a fairly usual day, shopping at Costco with her toddler son when she noticed a crazy coincidence and—thankfully, for all of us—decided to take a picture.

If you look closely at the picture, you’ll notice that her son isn’t the only one sporting a lime green polo shirt and multi-colored plaid shorts—the older man sitting on a bench in the background is wearing the same exact outfit (save the shoes)!

The mom posted the picture on reddit with the comment “I guess I know what my son will look like in 70 years…”, much to everyone’s delight.

I guess I know what my son will look like in 70 years… from pics

Some commenters (who may or may not be watching too much “Back To The Future”) are calling the picture proof of time travel:

Other commenters shared downright amusing observations about the coincidence:

The Way This Dad Dressed His Daughter For Daycare Is The Funniest Thing You’ll See All Day

As parents of two girls, and my husband and I have wildly different approaches to getting them dressed each morning. My approach is to find a cute, color-coordinated, weather-appropriate outfit. His approach? Reach into their drawers, grab whatever garments his hand touches first and throw them on at the speed of light. So what if the results are navy paired with black, or a shirt worn backwards. They’re dressed, aren’t they?

No doubt many parents can relate to the struggle of getting the kids dressed and out the door in the morning, which is why the wardrobe fail that’s been circulating the internet is so darn funny.

Imgur user Laureeadeline shared her story after picking up her daughter from daycare and noticing that she was wearing overalls with no shirt underneath. She assumed her baby’s shirt had suffered some sort of diaper fail at daycare until she exchanged texts with her husband. Only then did she learn that rather than a diaper fail, there had been a wardrobe fail, and her husband, Jeremy, had sent their sweet baby off to daycare that morning wearing nothing but overalls.

“Did you send Olivia to daycare without a shirt on?” she writes.

“Uh, I sent her with that thing on,” Jeremy responds.

“Overalls,” mom writes. “Supposed to wear a shirt with overalls.”

Read the full exchange for yourself and see if you don’t laugh out loud.

Mom Rewrites Taylor Swift Song As A Tribute To Exhausted Moms

Let’s face it, it can be exhausting being a parent. It’s just non-stop from sunrise to sunset. And then it starts all over again. In the end, it’s worth it but sometimes you need a little something to get through each day. For one person, it’s her “mommy dreams.”

Dannielle Murray created a video about all the little things that moms fantasize about throughout the day. You know those crazy awe-inspiring concepts like being able to take a shower alone or getting a full night’s rest.

Murray summed it perfectly by saying, “We know the long days are well worth it, and one day – when the kids have moved out, we can do all of those things we miss. So don’t stop dreaming, mamas!”

Baby Monitor Catches Toddler Singing ‘Star Wars’ Imperial March Song

This video adorably speaks for itself. Although the visual quality isn’t the best, you can clearly hear Jonathan H. Liu‘s daughter sing Darth Vader’s theme song, “Imperial March.”

According to his blog, Liu’s youngest daughter took an immediate linking to Star Wars, especially Darth Vader. “When he first appeared on the screen, she started mimicking the sound of his breathing,” he writes.

The force is definitely strong with this one, here’s to hoping she stays on the good side.

Guys Hold A Fake Funeral For Their Friend Who Is Always With His New Girlfriend (PHOTOS)

We’ve all been there. You’ve got that one friend (guy or girl) who completely falls off the face of the earth when they start dating that “special” someone.

I guess it’s all part of life. Everyone has their own way of acting when they fall in love and some just want to spend every minute with their new boyfriend or girlfriend.

Here’s the story of Keiran Cable, a 20-year-old from South Wales, who recently fell in love and as a result left his group of friends in the past.  As reported by Daily Mail, Cable met Jess Ferguson about 18 months ago and since that first meeting he’s spent all of his time with his new love.

His friends weren’t liking that he basically vanished and they wanted to do something about it. So being a very creative group, they decided what would be more fitting than giving their buddy Cable a formal funeral.

About 50 of his friends told Cable they were going to watch the rugby world cup. But instead they wore black suits, rented a hearse, and created a coffin for their dear friend.

Best fake funeral ever, well done Keiran Cable

Posted by Ryan Mitchinson on Sunday, October 18, 2015

Cable played along and even jumped in the coffin to officially accept his new fate.

With all the jokes aside, I think this was a clever way to show a friend how much they care about him. And for the record, Kerian’s girlfriend, Jess, insists that he can hang out with he boys whenever he wants.
