Brief But Spectacular take on making conversation

Fred Dust’s Brief But Spectacular take on making conversation

I’m a big fan of PBS NewsHour. The news program doesn’t use a slate of “experts” who postulate endlessly back and forth nor does it conflate opinion with news. The broadcast which airs Monday – Friday at 6PM ET also covers a wide range of news (including events happening outside the United States – imagine that).

However, what I like the most about PBS NewsHour are their series and special reports like last week’s “Brief But Spectacular take on making conversation”. Listen to Fred Dust’s 3-minute video if you have a moment.

How do you like my duck

Be sure to read the “How to” instructions page and the happy customer testimonials.

The website is full of humorous / horrifying bits such as this helpful tip…
Of the women surveyed, 65% said that grey pubic hair turned them off completely.

Anyone being forced to participate in an holiday gift swap? I’d suggest adding this for your next Yankee Swap.
