captions paid for by nbc-universal television never thought we'd get here, it's try day friday. september 14th. we're glad you're with us. this is a very important day around here. >> it certainly is. it's the last day of our colleg e competition. we really want you to take part in it. we're holding the competition to find out what school really catches our eye with a lot of school spirit. we've been getting great tweets and videos and stuff. and then we're going to narrow it down. >> first we're going to look at
2:06 am
a video from the university of mississippi, i believe. >> hey, hoda. hey, kathie lee. we love you here in mississippi. we really need you to come experience the true spirit of the game day grove. i have cocktail for you and your wine. you'll be all set to enjoy ole miss. >> she's the only girl there. >> that's oxford, mississippi. that's where my friend sam was like king of the jungle. no, it's a beautiful town. all right. you guys are in the running. >> we also have a photo and tweet from laura brooks at the university of tennessee. she says even peyton manning has a jersey waiting for you. yes, indeed. anyway, we like to talk about our friends over at "the "new york times"" and he always gets some really tricky questions. and so there's this lady -- >> this is a good one. >> -- who wrote in saying her sister-in-law and her family, this gets tricky, had stayed in her house almost two months while she was away. she didn't charge them. it was totally free.
2:07 am
they could use the cars. and while they were there, the garbage disposal broke. okay. now what would you do? you're staying in someone's house for free, for a few months. >> you fix the garbage disposal. >> they fixed it, and the bill came, and it was $600. so the person who was staying there decided to say to the owner, here's the bill for the garbage disposal. that broke at your house. why don't we split it? and the homeowner said, what the wherewithal? anyway. so the question is what should have happened? should she have said something to the sister-in-law. i usually agree with phillip. i don't agree with him. fit says you should split it. he agrees. >> here's the use of a new disposal. but lord only knows what those people were eating to break it in the first place. you know what i'm saying? >> it could have been a timing thing. it could have broken weeks before or weeks after. i would have paid for it. you're on a free ride. you're on a gravy train. >> this has happened to me.
2:08 am
maybe i'm just too sensitive. you come to your place to appreciate it and someone has not cared for it at all the way you would have expected them to. i think that's extraordinarily rude. >> what if by chance it broke. it's time. it's old. it was going to kick. >> in two months staying there, they would have spent a lot more than $600 anywhere else. and out of gratitude -- which is an unused word too often, they should have paid for it to say thank you for letting u stay here two months. of course, i'm always wrong. >> you were wrong about the granny. granny had a urinary tract infection. >> granny panties. >> you guys remember? she got yanked out of the car by the cop. anyway, it's national play-dough day on sunday. >> celebrating 50. >> i'm older than play-doh. 55 years. >> now that hurts. by the way, this was first manufactured not at play-doh but
2:09 am
as a wallpaper cleaner. and kids started playing with it. they're like, oh, my god. you can make things out of it. they started using it in the classroom. >> so we're going to make a face today. it's in the national toy hall of fame. no joking around. i have an unfinished hoda. you have a browner face and yours isn't. >> now, we have different parts that we're supposed to add to make it. so we'll do it right now. >> let me look at your nose. >> okay. that looks like the big one. i'm just telling you. >> just saying. >> don't do that with the hair. i'm already onto you. hold on. look at your lid. your lid is bad, too. hold on. we're going to hold it up because -- you know what these look like? >> turds? bambino. you are disgusting. >> okay. i'm done.
2:10 am
as usual, early and perfect. >> that's close. >> i got to put the nose up a little higher. >> careful with the nose. >> it's just a little bulbous. but it's good. please don't use that word. i look like a freak. >> since when did i get my mouth like that. >> well, you know. >> go ahead. do the reveal. >> sometimes after drinking. here's hoda woman. >> that's terrible. i'm bummed it's their anniversary. >> i'm bummed i'm older than that. so here's warm and fuzzy. there was a guy who owned a car dealership. he was retiring. 83-year-old howard cooper decided he was going to give every employee $1,000 for every year they worked. there were 89 employees in all. a lot of them worked there more than 20 years. one was with them 47 years. the other part of the story i love so much. he had sold the company to another motor company last
2:11 am
april. when he did that, he made sure each employee was retained as part of his deal. >> we're starting the award on friday or whenever we decide to do it. whenever we hear of a nice person. nice guy or gal of the week. and this award goes to him. and we do have ideas about that. don't lie. we'll find out. here's some weird thing they're doing with tombstones. bringing tombstones into the modern era. >> why not? >> you know the bar codes they have on clothes and groceries and you can scan it with your iphone and tell you how much it costs? . they want to try to do something in graveyards where they have the same bar code on a tombstone. it's called a qr code. put it in the prompter. anyway. you scan it with your
2:12 am
iphone, the qr code and it shows pictures and photos of the person who is deceased. so if you want to learn more about that person. >> it bothers me, and i don't know why. it looks like a desecration on the tombstone itself. >> moving it kind of into the modern era. i guess if you were walking by anybody's tombstone you could scan it. >> and will how do you know what information is on there? >> is it your facebook page? >> if it's wikipedia, anybody can put anything they want. it's time for our friday funny. [ laughter ] >> fine. i haven't even looked at this. from our facebook family staffer. two elderly women were fussing about their husbands over tea one day. i do wish my leroy would stop biting his nails. it makes me terribly nervous, the first one said. my elmo used to do the same thing, the other woman commented. but i broke him of that habit
2:13 am

2:14 am
but you said you like it rough. >> i do. i do. >> she's right. anyway. you can see the self tanner coming off. really exciting. any ways, la edge this is really helpful if you do have self tanner or tan you want to get rid of. a lot of women also have fallen in love with gel manicures. don't peel it off. it will take your nail with it. red carpet manicure will help you with the nail removal kit. and cameron diaz and j.lo have a secret. it's in their bag. this will keep your teeth whiter. it will remove your film to wear the brighter, bolder lip colors for fall. so here you go. >> aren't we glad bobbie is back. >> thank you, honey. sarah, what's happening in the tweet world?
