Noticing that someone has food in their teeth is one of life’s most anxiety-inducing social situations: Is it rude to tell them? Is it rude not to tell them? Have you been contemplating it for too long and now it’s too late in the conversation to tell them?

Perhaps this person is a new acquaintance. Perhaps this person is a colleague or boss. Perhaps this person is Oprah Winfrey.

For one brave soul, the latter situation arose — and he chose the road less traveled (we imagine). 

“Thank u kind gentleman who told me I had kale in my teeth,” Oprah Tweeted on Thursday night, adding, “Was eating kale chips with Quincy Jones.” Naturally.

The Tweet caused the Internet to collectively gasp at the prospect of such an interaction, which then turned into a conversation about the return of Oprah’s Next Chapter and the weight loss benefits of kale.

The man has yet to be identified, but we join Oprah in saluting his honesty, courage, and kindness.

I can’t stand her so I wouldn’t say anything. Perhaps just laugh as I walked by.

Why they try to make Oprah sound like some demi-god?
OH MY GOD he told her she had kale in her teeth. No human has ever live to tell such a tale.
Get over yourself.

Sure I would. I’d be curious as to her reaction seeing as hearing other common expressions have set her back, such as, “We’re closed.”

I should have known when Gayles (hi fellow Terp) CBS This Morning interviewed mom who snatched son out of B more riots they wouldn’t mention Lady O sent this mom a check? Sadly O she’s whining for more in that cycle!!!

Kale yes. How many would say something was hanging out of a nose or on the back of their pants (fear sexua harassment due to obviously looking at their rear)? Not as many I’d bet.

Well, People wouldn’t. They are clearly terrified of her. All other comments are handled by Disqus and here, where People quakes in their boots to think of telling Oprah about kale in her teeth, they make you give your name, email address and threaten to delete your comment. COWARDS.

Technique C: Increase the size of your computer’s RAM (Random Access Memory). From the space sim X-wing to the innovative RTS Empire at War, there was always something new for every Star Wars fan. There are plenty of real-time and turn-based strategy games, but few transpire in far-off galaxies and star systems.

I was pretty sad when I got to the Namco Bandai booth however and found out they only brought their fighting games to be played there, which I didn’t bother to try. game, try disabling Steam Cloud Sync, it may resolve this issue. The overall game is based on strategy and has good graphics, courtesy of the Unreal Engine.
