PSA: You’re Not Supposed To Eat The Wax On Babybel Cheese
Experienced Babybel cheese eaters know that the red wax on the outside is not part of the snack, it’s just there to protect the cheese inside. But apparently, this knowledge isn’t as obvious as we thought because some newbies to the round cheese snacks have shared their wax coating experiences on social media.
The cheese circles are coated in red wax that comes with handy little pull-tabs, but it wasn’t clear to some folks what to do with those because a photorecently uploaded to Imgurshows the Babybel with a third bitten off and teeth marks through both the wax and the cheese.
And it turns out, they’re not alone. Otherposts on ImgurandReddit, show plenty of people have done it. But let’s just go ahead and clear this up for everyone:don’t eat the wax on the outside of a Babybel. While the company says it’s food-safe and won’t hurt you, it’s not food and won’t taste good. So take the wax off, eat the cheese, and use the wax to play with while you snack.The more you know, right?
Does Your Dog Have Any Say in Your Love Life?
A new study examining the dating behaviors of 2,000 dog owners uncovered as many as 63 percent say their pup plays a huge role in their romantic relationships and defining how things go. In fact, half of the respondents surveyed wouldn’t even consider being in a relationship with someone who didn’t like their dog and fifty-seven percent say they can’t fall for someone unless their dog loves them. Although 45 percent of the dog owners surveyed admitted to dating someone who did not get along with their dog, 23 percent said they would never make that mistake ever again. While another 33 percent had never even been in a relationship with anyone who didn’t get along with their furry friend and had no plans of breaking that streak either.
- Have you ever broken up with someone because they didn’t get along with your dog?

‘Rage Yoga’ Uses Beer, Cursing To Release Stress
“Some people need to release and let go.” That according to Ashley Duzich at Brash Brewery in Houston, Texas.
Duzich says Rage Yoga is “a practice that involves breathing, stretching, mood draws, yoga postures and a lot of bad humor.”
This is not your parent’s yoga class. “Yoga itself actually means union… so union with yourself,” said Duzich. “And that’s not always just super-calm, breathing, practicing quiet time, like a lot of yoga places are.”
Why Rage Yoga? “We are all angry about something and we all have been holding onto an ‘F’-bomb for a little bit too long,” said Duzich. “So that’s what this does – is – it allows you to have a safe space to let go of your and frustration and rage in a healthy way… and then also wash it all away with some ice cold beer.”
According to her Facebook page, Duzich grew up on the gulf coast of Texas and she graduated from Texas A&M Corpus Christi with a degree in Exercise Science in December of 2013.
The official Rage Yoga website says Rage Yoga Instructors have each completed our certification program and also have a minimum of 200 hours of yoga instructor certification.
Duzich said that she has heard some funny outbursts during yoga sessions. “This is a great thing to just scream it out,” said Duzich. “One of the funniest things I think I ever heard was, ‘I told you to do the dishes!'”
