I think I really might be getting closer to where I'm just going to be a cranky old out-of-it codger.

  3. No, man, you gotta skim down the piece. They're planning on getting people to work for them to win food coupons at 7/11.... Virtual money.

  7. Peon food.

    Not hot dogs. That's meat. It's against the law for peons to eat meat. Meat is for nobles. No shit. Serfs were not allowed to eat meat, by law. They had to do all the work with way less than half the nutrients of their overlords. It's here. It's almost all the way back to that RIGHT NOW.

  9. Hey! You know what? That's almost exactly what I meant to say, but I got something in my eye and tried to hurry. Hotdogs are mostly ground-up animal byproducts... parts we don't think of as edible... including feces... so... come to think of it... maybe peons could eat hot dogs and call it meat.

  10. It's the meat the nobles won't eat!

    Unless you are talking about the home-made hot dogs from the little meat shops in Wisconsin.

    Those were real meat! I miss them so!

    The closest I have found around here is a German Deli & Sausage shop.

  11. OK - it took me 45 seconds to make that comment - it is redundant to your last comment which was not there when I wrote mine, although it supposedly posted 2 minutes earlier.

  12. Soon it will seem like filet mignon, guys. Soon.

    So try to excuse me when I start advocating tearing their throats out and hanging them on pikes....

    We gotta do it before we're too weak to tear paper.

  13. Heh, I don't think I've eaten a hotdog in 20 years. At least not since a friend of mine working in a large meat packing house gave me the heads up on what was involved in the process of making them.

    He told me the workers used to joke about it, said they were made from chicken lips and arse holes lol.

    Your right about the little meat shops BB2.

    I buy all my chicken and beef from two farmers that I know, and sausage from a small local butcher.

  14. I had moved to Madison, Wisconsin the day before the town's largest employer, other than the Government, went belly up and laid off the entire work force. I tried find a job but didn't have much luck until some openings came up at the Oscar Meyer plant. I went out and applied, got hired on the spot. Then they took me on a tour of the plant and to show me my work station. I never made it to the work station, quit on the spot half way through the tour. I haven't knowingly eaten anything made by Oscar Meyer since!

  15. There used to be the world's greatest meat shop in Mendocino. They had the BEST linguiça ever, and this is something about which I happen to be expert, very close to as expert as my Poppa... who agreed with me on this point. I bought meats there for the breakfasts I made for the guests at the B&B I used to manage. No "continental breakfast" at my place! I blew their minds! Nobody EVER wanted to go back home.

  16. LOL - I went to Phoenix for a course on the computer estimating program my employer had bought. I had virtually no knowledge of Hotel life.

    The hotel I stayed at had a big billboard sign in the lobby advertising their Continental Breakfast.

    Cool I thought - free breakfast!

    The next morning I went down and asked at the front desk where they were having the breakfast. The desk clerk pointed to this little table with a pot of coffee and a small plate of crappy store bought sweet rolls.

    Sheesh! Ya learn something new every day!

  17. I'd brag here about the fabulous breakfasts I served, some of the recipes, but... I don't want anyone stealing them. They were all dreamed up by me, and they rock so hard there may be a way I can yet turn them into something positive and unique in the world....
