Good posture tip

Tilt Up Your Rearview Mirror just far enough to force yourself into an upright sitting position to see behind you, which is good for your posture and your aching back.

Obtaining a smooth face

A smooth face doesn’t start and end with shaving cream.

Use pre- and post-shave products. You’ll notice fewer ingrown hairs, less razor-burn irritation, and longer-lasting shaves.

Layers of officewear

Office wear relies on several layers of clothing: on top of your shirt is your suit jacket, under which you could slip a cardigan and over which a topcoat may be added.

Use these opportunities to your advantage to draw attention away from your body’s less desirable aspects.

A substantial sweater is a particularly good investment right now; besides giving you comfort, it conveniently hides additional heft that you may not want to display.

Junk Food Guide: Hawaiian Punch

High level of crapHawaiian Punch, originally created in 1934 comes from the original recipe’s ingredients, the seven fruit flavors: apple, apricot, guava, orange, papaya, passion fruit, and pineapple. It was created by A.W. Leo, Tom Yates, Ralph Harrison as an ice cream topping in a garage in Fullerton, California.

You may think of Hawaiian punch as a fruit juice but it is not nearly that healthy, only containing about 5% fruit juice. The rest is water and High Fructose Corn Syrup as the sweetener.

The punch is most often associated with the animated character “Punchy” which was a short fat little guy with a crown who would go around and hit this larger moke.

The mascot “Punchy” was originated by cartoonist Joe Malerba, and voiced in the commercials by and Len Maxwell.

Punchy’s catch phrase, “How about a nice Hawaiian Punch?” would be followed by his victim’s character answering “Sure!” and was then punched by Punchy’s punch.

The Punchy and Opie/Oaf characters and tagline were used intill the 1990s, when such antics were drummed out of polite society by the politically correcticans.

Punchy is undergoing a redesign, one of many he has had over the years. Over time, his quick-to-comical-violence approach to life has been tempered, his clenched fist turned into a “hang loose” hand gesture. In recent years he is no longer a hyperactive troublemaker, but a laid-back surfer dude. Ouch.

Today, Hawaiian Punch comes is lots of flavors including Fruit Juicy Red, Orange Ocean, Berry Blue Typhoon, Lemonade, Lemon Berry Squeeze, Green Berry Rush, Wild Purple Smash, Bodacious Berry, Mazin Melon Mix, Island Citrus Guava, and Mango Passionfruit Squeeze.

Hawaiian Punch is also used by the adult set in lots of drink concoctions including:

  • Adrenaline Punch (Rum, Gin, Hawaiian Punch, Peach Brandy, Sugar, Vodka
  • Bloody Roadrunner (Gatorade, Hawaiian Punch, Southern Comfort)
  • London-Maui Connection (Hawaiian Punch, Stretton’s London Dry Gin, Water
  • Surfin Hawiian (Hawaiian Fruit Punch, Orange Juice, Vodka)
