Dad Interrupts His Daughter’s Engagement by Holding Up Hilarious ‘Say No’ Sign

One fun-loving dad saw the perfect opportunity for a prank just as his future son-in-law asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage.

Allison Barron and Levi Bliss have been together for two years, and have developed a strong bond since meeting as students at the University of Nevada, Reno. Allison says it didn’t take long for the couple to recognize they had something special on their hands.

“Once Levi and I started dating, it didn’t take long at all to know that he was the one for me,” Allison, 22, tells PEOPLE. “Everything was so easy with him. I’d always heard that you’d just know, but never knew if I completely believed it. With Levi, I really just knew.”

All that was left was to make it official.

On the morning of March 24, Levi told an unsuspecting Allison that they were going to make a quick trip to meet up with her parents for breakfast. So the two hopped in their truck and went for a ride, and that’s when Levi looked over at his girlfriend and asked her to marry him.

“I immediately started crying, overwhelmed with joy, we got out of the truck, and he got down on one knee,” Allison, who lives in Winnemucca, Nevada, recalls. “You always imagine this moment, and now it was happening to me.”

Levi then pulled over near a spot where both of their families were hiding on the other side of a nearby hill, awaiting the big moment. Just as Levi finished his romantic gesture in front of a beautiful backdrop, Allison’s father, Jake, made his appearance by holding up a sign he made which read, in big capitalized letters: “SAY NO.”

Even though Levi asked Jake’s permission for his daughter’s hand in marriage, the 23-year-old had no idea his future father-in-law would pull off the well-timed joke.

“It was a funny surprise for both of us. My dad was completely joking with the sign, and he really likes Levi!” Allison says, adding that Levi and her father have bonded over the years. “It’s really just his personality. He is always making funny little comments and ‘dad’ jokes here and there!”

Later that day, Allison posted pictures of the proposal—and the sign—that were taken by her sister, Ashlee Barron, on Twitter. Her tweet quickly went viral, garnering some 225,000 likes and 66,000 retweets. It didn’t take long for the hilarious photos to be turned into a meme.

Fortunately, Allison is taking it all in good fun.

“I can’t believe that this has blown up as much as it has!” she says of the response on social media. “When I saw some of the first memes, I called my dad and he didn’t believe me. I think it’s funny, I keep seeing the pictures and my dad pop up everywhere!”

Allison says she and Levi are hoping to plan the wedding soon, and will likely hold the ceremony this fall at a venue in Lamoille, Nevada. 

“Once Levi came along, my family welcomed him right in. We all have a great relationship and do a lot together,” Allison says. “We are very excited about this next step in our lives.”

Fashion Deals Update:

Dutch Fashion Label Mexx Acquired by RNF Holding

GOING HOME: Mexx, the Dutch midprice apparel brand, has been acquired by RNF, a holding company that owns fashion, accessories and apparel labels. Terms were not disclosed.
RNF, which is also based in the Netherlands, purchased the chain from Eroglu, the Istanbul-based holding whose portfolio includes casual apparel company Colin’s and the Turkish denim brand Loft.
The transaction also includes Mexx Perfumes, which is operated as part of a licensing agreement with Coty.
Ferry Helmer, RNF Holding’s managing partner, lauded Mexx’s heritage, which dates back to the Eighties, and its strong brand recognition, which RNF said it plans to leverage.
Helmer added that as part of the transaction, Mexx would be incorporated under the RNF umbrella as Mexx International BV, a newly formed company.
Other labels under RNF include Ferro footwear. The company also operates Umbro and Scout under license in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
Mexx is best known for its casual styles and contemporary price points. In 2014, the company, then owned by The Gores Group, went into liquidation, having been hit by the European recession and a rapid decline of its business in Eastern Europe. It began operating again in January 2015, after it was acquired by Eroglu Holding.

No Holding Back

No Holding Back


As front man for Heretic, Wade Griffin planned on spending the rest of his life touring alongside his brother, Os, and best friend, Joe. All he ever wanted – all he ever needed was his music. And to cater to millions of screaming fans from one venue to the next? Well, that’s just an added bonus. But having their highly-idolized drummer get caught molesting minors and sent to prison isn’t exactly the type of hype they’re accustomed to. As one of the music world’s most popular metal bands, Wade and the rest of Heretic have to move on with their new drummer, Chris Rebman, hoping to leave the past where it belongs. But there’s only one problem in Wade’s world of music, girls, and tattoos Chris is actually Christine. And they’re tearing it up across the US. But popularity isn’t always a good thing. In fact, Wade’s list of problems just keep mounting: avoid the media all at costs, make sure Joe doesn’t smoke too much weed, keep Chris disguised as a guy, get Os to accept a girl in the band, protect her from droves of screaming fans, and last but not least – don’t fall in love with her. But he’s not doing so well on any of those. When Chris can think of nothing but winning over Heretic’s fan base as a girl, her dreams are cut short when her dark past resurfaces at the wrong place and at the wrong time. Caught between love and lyrics, Wade will have to come to terms with his own past if he is to pull off the performance of a lifetime.

Stop Catching Foul Balls While Holding Your Babies, You Lunatics

Something has gone awry in baseball. Back in the proverbial day, we caught foul balls, gently placed a celebratory hand in the air, quietly sat down and then got back to eating our peanuts or whatever, like normal, civilized people.

But at some point, something changed. No longer is it enough to simply catch a foul ball. Nowadays, you need to catch it in a way that separates you from the crowd, that temporarily elevates you from mere baseball fan to something akin to viral legend.

Was it Sportscenter that did this? The Internet? The evolution of man? Obama? No one can say for sure, but the point is that it happened. People are catching baseballs with beers, and they’re catching them with popcorn buckets. They’re catching them bare-handed and and they catching them backhanded. They’re catching them and dancing and they’re catching them and prancing.

And you know what? That’s all fine and good. Catch your foul balls with whatever receptacle you want. After all, this is America. Nothing wrong with a little show-boating. But there’s one new aspect of this trend that has been creeping up on us for some time that we need to talk about, if only because’s it’s gained some recent steam.

We’re talking about grabbing foul balls while holding babies, people.

cup

cup

cup

cup

These aren’t the only examples we could find, either. There are so, so, so many of them. One baby catch? Fine. Two? Sure. Three? Now we all see what’s going on.

We get where you’re coming from, moms and dads. You’re cool parents with senses of coordination we can’t match. You love your child, but you also love the spotlight, and this is one of the few instances in which those two passions can be combined into a moment of you being you. Hell, if “we” were parents, “we’d” probably be right there next to you. Looks pretty fun to be honest. But we aren’t parents. We are without child. And that makes us the voice of reason in this particular situation.

So quite literally, we beg of you: Think of the children. It’s only a matter of time before an attempt at virality ends with a trip to the hospital and a national conversation about parenting. And as we all know, there is nothing worse than a national conversation about parenting. Don’t make it come to that.

Who Is Holding Your Happiness Hostage?

All blame is a waste of time. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration.

You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.

— Wayne Dyer

Last week, while running some errands, I bumped into a close friend of mine whom I see on a fairly regular basis. It was immediately obvious that he was troubled about something because I could feel the negative energy sort of oozing out his pores. I said, “What’s the matter with you… you look very stressed out… is everything okay?” He bristled at the question and then said:

No, I’m not okay, because one of my coworkers is a real unethical person who is playing office politics, manipulating and lying to everyone there, spinning things around, and creating turmoil and hard feelings among a majority of the staff.

The office is so incredibly tense that everyone is walking on eggshells, except this guy. And to make it worse, somehow he has managed to fool the boss into thinking he is the best employee the company has ever had.

The truth is, he is the worst employee the company has ever had, and he’s getting away with it, and that really bugs me!

I spoke with my friend for a few minutes, trying to lift him up and out of his emotional quagmire, and then we said goodbye. So now, here it is a week later, and I saw my friend again last night, and guess what? He is still stuck in the same story with the same seething anger and resentment… the same cloud over his head. I felt bad for him because he seemed so miserable, and I suspect he still is today. It was clear that he was allowing his happiness to be held hostage by this person. The next time I see him, rather than asking “What’s the matter with you?” I should just say, “Who’s the matter with you?” Of course, I wouldn’t do that, not only because it would be thoughtless but also it would probably only serve in making him even more miserable, and I would probably lose a friend to boot.

Have you ever gotten a personal “bone” you were gnawing on about another person, stuck in your throat, making you miserable, and you just couldn’t seem to get rid of it? It’s safe to say it’s likely most of us have, and we know it’s not a pleasant experience; but who is really suffering, you or them? It’s amazing how often we externalize our power, placing our happiness in someone else’s hands by blaming them and their behavior for whatever is making us miserable. Perhaps it’s time to reclaim some of that power and release whomever you may be holding responsible for stealing your joy because they aren’t being the kind of person you think they “should be.” You may be right; they may be guilty of everything you have judged them to be, but would you rather be right or happy? If you are attached to always being both right and happy at the same time, you will suffer greatly.

Who’s the matter with you today? In other words, who might be holding your happiness hostage with your permission? If someone “special” pops up in your mind when I ask that question, consider blessing them rather than cursing them. While this idea may seem a bit challenging, consider that you may not have all the facts on their back story that cause this person to behave as they do. When we convert our anger and judgement into compassion amazing things happen within us that can also spill over into the life of the one who challenges us the most. Others often live up to (or down to) what we think of them and about them. To bless someone is to confirm that you see the light and presence of that which is sacred within them, even if they cannot see it themselves. When you do this you’ll be amazed at how quickly your inner peace finds its center in you again. It’s so easy to reclaim your power when you cease looking at others as the source of your unhappiness. Happiness really is an inside job!

Women, Sport, And Society In Modern China: Holding Up More Than Half The Sky

Women, Sport, And Society In Modern China: Holding Up More Than Half The Sky


Women hold up half the sky and Women can do what men can do are not just popular slogans peddled by Chairman Mao, but recent actualities of China''s elite sport. In every Olympics since 1988 women have increased their representation over men. Their extraordinary performances have thrust Chinese women into the global limelight and sparked considerable interest, not to mention controversy, with accusations of drug violations, and yet there remains a paucity of analytical literature on Chinese elite women''s sport not only in China but throughout the world.Drawing on Chinese sources hitherto unavailable in the West, official documents and interviews with top athletes, Dong Jinxia explores the rise of the Chinese super-sportswomen and their relationship with politics, culture and society before and during the Cultural Revolution and through China''s transition to a market economy. This readable work will appeal to students of sports studies, journalists and general readers fascinated by the rise of the Chinese women super-athletes.
