Outdoor

Outdoor mishaps, blunders and eyesores. What happens outdoors…stays on WhooKnoo for a really, really long time.

Indoor

Nothing says tacky like 70’s wallpaper and tourist trap tchotchke’s, and we’re on the prowl for the worst of it.

Baby & Kids

We shudder to think what can befall the youngest among us, but sometimes it’s good for a harmless chuckle at their expense.

Pets & Animals

Loyal and loving, most pets are adults at 2 years of age, but they still can’t open a can of food without our help.

Go Green

We’re all for preserving the planet, and you should be too unless you’ve got someplace else to live… Yah, we didn’t think so.

Whooknoo’s Guide to Battling Bad Breath

Is there anything worse then engaging in a face to face conversation with someone only to be assaulted with their musty mouth odor?  Don’t let yourself become one of those people!  The only thing worse than breathing bad breath into someone’s nostrils is finding out that your friends or co-workers all know you have bad breath while you remain oblivious (IE – “that Cody guy sure is smart and funny, but his breath STANKS!).  The secret to avoiding bad breath is – say it with me folks – prevention.  Here  are 5 easy ways you can help your mouth wage war on stinky breath.

  1. Drink plenty of water!  Bad breath is caused by certain types of bacteria that live inside your mouth.  By drinking water, you can help cut down on the bacteria population.
  2. If you have the sneaking suspicion your breath might be particularly bad on a certain day, try chewing sugar free gum.  The chewing will heighten the amounts of saliva in your mouth and help cut down on stinky odors.
  3. Regularly schedule yourself dentist appointments to make sure your mouth is in healthy shape.  Any sort of gum disease or tooth problem can really stinkify your breath.
  4. Try to always eat plenty of fresh and crisp fruits and veggies.  These types of food will help remove food particles that might be caught between your teeth (not the mention they are good for you)!
  5. If you’re a big time coffee fiend, try drinking tea instead.  Coffee coats your tongue with a thin film that prevents proper saliva flow.
