5 Things A Bully Doesn’t Want You to Know

As the sound of school bells ringing signals that school is back in session for the year, it also means that students and parents will face some common issues. It is estimated, each day in America, that 160,000 students stay home from school in order to avoid being bullied, so it makes a lot of people wonder what goes on in the mind of a bully.

They also do it before concerts and other events, but football remains a stronghold when it comes to tailgating popularity. One of the most popular things people do during tailgating is to pull out a small grill and whip up a meal prior to heading into the game. This football season, it’s time to take things up a notch and opt for some unique burger toppings, as well as a whole new twist on a burger!

“Do yourself a favor and, at least once this season, try shrimp burgers at your tailgating party,” says Shawn Davis, otherwise known as Chef Big Shake, who is the founder of CBS Foods and The Original Shrimp Burger. “Those tailgating with you will be impressed that you made such a tasty decision. Shrimp burgers cook up quickly and bring something new to the folding table.”
