My brother in law, Andy, has a great sense of humour. He and my sister, Dodi, are SUCH a perfect match for each other. There’s probably not another couple in the world that gets more laughs out of farts and pooping dogs. He tells lots of unbelievable (and unbelievably funny) stories, and I think most of them are true! (He really was on American Gladiators!) Andy has arranged a special top ten for you on the blog today. If you’re interested in reading more of his funny stuff, check out his blog, That Happened People! here. Welcome to the show Andy!

The 10 Biggest myths I was Told in My Life

10.  There is a snail in my nose who would bite my finger off if I picked my nose. (Either that snail is slow or I’m quick.)

9.  There’s a Tooth Fairy.  (I knew this was fake when I got an IOU.)

8.  Sitting too close to the TV will make you blind.  (What if the TV is off?)

Dodi and Andy

7.  Mixing Pop Rocks and soft drinks will make your stomach explode. (I tried to use this as an excuse to skip school.)

6.  Pepsi is better than Coca-Cola. (That actually qualifies as a lie.)

5.  Cheaters never win. (Last time I checked Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez took steroids and they won the World Series.)

4.  AOL is tracking my email and if I forward “this email” to 10 people Bill Gates will send me money.  (Don’t worry, Bill, I know you’re good for it.)

3.  There was a secret world on Super Mario Brothers.  (There is no secret world.)

2.  That I could be a professional baseball player.  (This was wrong on so many levels.)

1.  My brother used to tell me I was adopted.  (His story had some weight, I have almost every recessive trait in our family.)

My point: I’m living the American Dream.


Thanks for the laughs, Andy! Funny enough, your wife used to tell me I was adopted too! Love you guys, and can’t wait to meet the wee one on the way!
