Special Hidden Talent (SHT) Giveaway

For some it’s juggling, for others it’s farting on command. It’s the Special Hidden Talent or SHT. For me? See below:

What’s your SHiT? I’ve got a Shut Up and Run Burn Out Tee (small or medium) for the one who comes up with the best talent. So blog, comment, vlog, whatever and I’ll check it out. I’ll pick my favorite talent on Tuesday, July 18! If you are the winner, would you be willing to provide a short video?

  1. I can walk on the "knuckles" of my feet. I curl my toes down far enough that I am standing on the tops of them.

  2. I can turn doorknobs and pick things up with my toes. My husband calls me "monkey toes". I have also passed this superpower down to our son!

    ReplyDelete
  3. My toes are super long; husband even calls them tingers since they are more like fingers. I can pick up stuff off the floor with my feet.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I can twist my fingers all behind my knuckles on the back of my hand...I do it to stretch my fingers, but people freak out every time they see it :)

  5. If the multi-talented video whore XLMIC doesn't win this, then there is truly no justice in the world.

  6. oh, i really want a shirt!! I have a couple of small talents...I can juggle, but handiest of all is that I can whistle with my fingers. Like many of your followers, I too have monkey toes and can pick things up off the floor with them. So those are my 3 talents. (If you pick me, my video will begin with an ear-splitting whistle, then some juggling, then the monkey toes will pick up what I've dropped juggling and then the sound of the cheering crowd aka more whistling will end the clip...No way do you wanna miss it! ;-)

  7. my talent? I work full time with special needs kids (I'm a speech therapist), I have a 3 and 4 year old, my husband might as well be a kid, I train for 1/2 and full marathons and triathlons. I also have never killed anyone :)

  8. I can instantly make people gag by poking out my shoulder blades SO far that they look like wings. I can just pop them out. LIke, if I wanted to, I could hit someone with them.

  10. My talent: I can curl my tongue back on itself and make it stick. What could be better than tongue tricks??
    (Ok, fake farts, but besides that).

    ReplyDelete
  11. I can move Just my pinky toe... I do not know how I discovered this, but I like to creep the boyfriend out with it... (I will provide a video as well).

  13. I can pick my nose with my tongue. Comes in handy during long runs without tissues. (Our whole family can touch our tongues to our noses!) I can provide a photo if you want...

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen.

    I'd love for you and my friend who can do the "eyeball fart" to have a Fart-Off. The next new sensation...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I can write poetry and make up jingles. The offensive, made up word kind. Not the inspiring soulful kind.

    ReplyDelete
  16. About the only thing I can do is wiggle my ears. By the way , got my burnout shirt today LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! Its perfect, not too c-thru, just right.Fit, is great and the scoop neck is perfect also! Cant wait to wear it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your blog is seriously one of the highlights of my day. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. My special hidden talent is practical and a bit obscure.

    I have a talent for accurately estimating volumes. I can look at a bowl of water and tell you how many cups it is, what size tupperware you need for leftovers (and it always fits perfectly), or how much space to leave in a pot for pasta.

    For example, the other day I was measuring out water for oatmeal and didn't think the final volume looked right. Sure enough, when I checked the measuring cup I was using it was 1/3 cup instead of 1/2!

    I can also independently wiggle my ears, use my toes to manipulate objects, move just my first two toes or pinkies, do the wave with my eyebrows, and nose whistle, but those are more just stupid human tricks.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can make my stomach do really cool things! Like form a long mound down the center. Sometimes this causes an accidental queef to slip out. Whoops!

    ReplyDelete
  20. i can play the recorder with my nose...

  24. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot in my mouth.

    ReplyDelete
  25. how do you do that so deadpan? FREAKIN AWESOME!!!

    Kovas is so nice to call me names... now that's throwing down the gauntlet... time to get out the video camera.... oh, and develop a SHiT.

    Other than wiggling my ears, tying a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue and smoking cigarettes and blowing smoke rings with my... o nevermind...

    Okay... I am on it... I'll make a video of my SHiT. I'll let you know when it's up.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I used to think my SHT was pretty special, but I'm quite humbled by all the talented SHT I'm reading here.

    (BTW, this is the best comment thread OF ALL TIME EVER)

    So mine is ... I can raise both eyebrows independently of each other. Wow, huh?

    I'm gonna go practice walking on my toe-knuckles and jutting out my shoulder blades now.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm sorry Beth, you were totally upstaged by Emma in that video. As for a SHT, nothing is coming to mind at the moment. This is probably reassuring my wife and a lot of my friends, if they are reading this.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can wiggle my eyeballs!! Some girl in 6th grade thought she was special and tried to make me feel bad until I learned her trick!! I have know idea how I figured it out and only works when I am close up to someones face or a mirror!! Great party trick for the drunkards

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can put both legs behind my head... even after 5 kids :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hoy crap I LOVE this thread! From the oh so clever "SHT" giveaway to the hilarious hidden talents. Pure comedy gold, all of it. God bless all of you crazy SUAR ladies. Kris (who can plug her nose with her upper lip - perfect seal - helped propel me to become a state champ synchronized swimmer and my nose didn't look creepy above water with nose plugs on )

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ok, this is hard to explain, but I can use the middle finger on my right hand, and flick it into my palm using my left thumb and forefinger to snap. Never seen anyone else that can do this. Odd talent, thought it would never get me anywhere, but sounded like a goos SHT to me! Video can be provided!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I can flare my nostrils without the rest of my face moving, curl my tongue and do the Vulcan Salute.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wish I could squirt milk out of my eye like that guy did on Letterman one time.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I can "jump rope" my arms. Some say it is gross, but I hold them in front of me, step over them, fold them up past my back, and have them in front of me again without ever having unhooked my fingers. I also have the "winged" shoulder blades which may be what makes this possible -not sure?

    I would be willing to provide video;-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. My talent is the ability to pretend like I give a SHT what a potential client is saying when in my mind I am only thinking that I could kill them now and nobody would know or that they just need to just sign up and become a client.

    And then always end the conversation with a smile and 'that was amazing to hear'

    But I don't think that beats the Fart in the Throat one bit.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like Jason's talent. At least he pretends to listen. Not sure he'd look good in a Small burnout tee though.

    Not really a talent per se, but I haven't shaved my legs in ~6 years. That would be a boring video of not-shaving my not-hairy legs, so I wouldn't pick myself either.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have a hidden talent, but my wife won't let me tell it...so, I'll say this one...Much like your throaty fart noise, I can make a perfect pig noise with my throat! The only other person I know that can do it is my niece!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Okay, first off, I freaking love your voice. Not sure what it is but I could listen to it all day. Enough ass kissing (but really, I wasn't ass kissing...I'm serious!)....

    Okay, I've got this one in the bag and I think I'd even be willign to share a video. Since I was a little girl, I could always pull my stomach skin way out...like way out! I look like i have a pretty flat and muscular tummy and it is tight for the most part....until I start warming up the skin...kind of like a italian pizza shop...I just start workin' it and I can get it out way far!! all the way around. I used to think that it would keep me from getting stretch marks for when I was prego if I "conditioned" my skin. :) Didn't get stretch marks and can still do it.. I'd be willing to produce a video if it means I win. I'm not sure you're ready for it though....:)

  39. I believe my SHiT would be I can burp...not a nice normal burp...but a silent deadly burp that will empty my vehicle, cause my hubby to cuss and my kids to actually gag. I have no idea what causes this but I can clear a room and make you roll down the windows when it's 110* outside or -15*. It makes my family crazy and there is NOTHING more fun then me in the drivers seat in full control of the window locks...to give them a SBD! Hehehe it really does make laugh until I cry...they just cry :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can lay on my back and make my belly button disappear between my abdominal muscles that have not seen each other since about the 7th month of my first pregnancy 5 years ago, then i can make it pop back out. Peek a boo with the belly button, also if conditions are right in my belly, I can make my stomach growl really loud on demand, totally grosses out my husband, but super cool SHT right there!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue, which many many men in bars have considered a talent over the years!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can pop my hip bones out of joint.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I can intertwine my toes together to make it seem like I am folding my feet in prayer!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I queef in shouldstand during yoga class every single time. Wouldn't call that a talent persay. And there certainly won't be any video.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I can play my nose. Like a musical instrument. It actually sounds kind of...soothing.

    ReplyDelete
  46. DDVMM@comcast.netJuly 15, 2011 at 6:29 PM

    I can make a popping noise from my ears!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I can do the basics, move my eyebrows independently, curl my tongue, pick things up with my toes, move my ears, flare my nostrils.....BUT my stupid human trick is I can fit my entire fist, up to the wrist in my mouth.
    Go ahead.
    Try it. Hard to do.
    can provide video if necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ok I had to test it out to see if I could still do this one, it's been awhile. I can take a long piece of spaghetti and floss it between my nose and mouth.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, this is the most amazing thread I've ever read!

    Ok, I can't do funky things with my toes or burp on command -- side note here is that prior to pregnancy I was unable to burp AT ALL (yes, seriously) which all changed during pregnancy and then mysteriously reverted after childbirth. Yes, I'm weird.

    My SHT is that I can manage to turn even the worst client interaction around into a conversation that ends with them feeling happy as a clam with all that I do. It's my hidden genius.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Gonna make a SHiT vlog later today...

    ReplyDelete
  51. okay, check out my SHiT post...it's a done deal.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can breastfeed and post comments all at the same time. And some other various mommy-related talents.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh my goodness, I can't believe I'm actually posting this, but here goes....

    When in a certain position, I can fart, and then subsequently suck air back in, and fart it out again...

    No, there will be no video....(Blushing and hiding in a corner now...)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have the special talent of working the graveyard shift. I work 7 days on and 7 off. On my weeks I work, I manage to sleep 3 hours a day, get up and run a min. of 3 miles, make supper for my family, go to a 2nd job for 2 hours and then proceed to go back to my graveyard shift that night. I have yet to find any dead bodies laying in my path, that is not to say that by day 6 I am ready to create a few! I am a mom, wife, and a runner who does what she has to do!!! RUN ON!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I can talk like momma clump from the nutty professor.

    ReplyDelete
  56. That is so clutch and had to be killer in school!!

    I can't wait to see XLMIC's video!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I asked my 5 kids what my SHT was and they all 5 started laughing and said i didnt have one..wth?If I can raise 5 kids, get them all to dance, soccer, football, golf ect..AND still have time to train AND win enough money to pay for this season's soccer cleets and football gear, then that should count for something

    ReplyDelete
  58. This is so not family-friendly... but I have an orgasm every time I do core exercises. I think I'll pass on the video.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am the loudest swallower. The roof of my mouth is "cavernous", says the dentist, causing ridiculous swallowing sounds akin to water rushing through a canyon. Not slurping, just echoing. Not a talent, but interesting nonetheless.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I can touch my nose with my upper lip. I also have monkey toes that I can pick things up with.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Still uncovering more special hidden talents daily, but here's what I have so far:

    *breastfeeding while doing ab workout.
    *breastfeeding while doing aerobics class.
    *wiggle ears.
    *NEW* I can make my nipples kiss each other.
    *NEW* I just discovered I can suckle myself…not that I plan on doing that, but I could if I wanted to. Okay…perverse…but so is Amanda's skin thing.

    I will see what else i've got.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I can fold my tongue into a flower.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I can hold a beer between my boobs and drink it without using my hands!! bwhaha that was dumb but I would totally provide video!

    ReplyDelete
  64. you are so talented!! :)

    I can put both legs behind my head.
    I used to be able to stand on one leg with the other up next to me head in a "standing split" but have not tried that one in years...hmmmm.

    ReplyDelete
  65. my husband just discovered my SHT this weekend. i can move my pinky toe only. But I can only do it with one foot.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am seeing a trend that it seems most runners have monkey toes...as do I.
    My SHT which after reading Running Moose's comment may not be that rare, but I can make a perfect pig grunt with my throat. My kids hate it...and that makes me happy. Maybe me and Running Moose need to have a pig off..

    ReplyDelete
  67. Alright, I've been really debating whether I should admit to this SHT or NOT. I suppose I have nothing to lose except self-respect and face, so here GOES.
    I am a bad ass mother punner. Which means I have the ability to make 88% of all people within earshot of my spontaneous puns groan in anguish. This is why this SHT IS A SECRET.
    2 examples for proof:
    Last year in my fifth grade class, I had a girl by the name of Maite (pronounced "MY-tay") a sweet, humorous girl. The secretary called over our class intercom, "Mrs. Ashley, do you have Maite in your room?" so I replied, "I Maite have her, and I Maite not." silence on the intercom...
    Then a week later, the office staff had gotten a kick out of the Maite incident, and one of them called to see if I had Christina Havner in my room. "yes, ma'am, I Have-ner."
    So there you have it. I PUNish others with my punny PUNdemonium. I think its why i have such good rapport with kids...they feel pity for me. Was funny a qualifying characteristic for the SHT contest?

  68. i can eat like a goat! anything.. apple cores, ends of celery, the spiny part of vegis you name it, i can digest it :) hey it is just more fiber right?
