peristaltor: (The Captain's Prop)
At work today, a co-worker shared a bit of her lunch, some Italian salami. Bad news, though; it was starting to turn. I didn't mind; I could tell it had a few more hours before the turning meat taste would be overpowering. (I've been told I have an Iron Gut. Never sick on bad food, ever.)

She, however, tasted that initial turn and spat it out. I ate a few more before she tossed the package. We headed out to get some grub elsewhere instead.

On the way, she was remarking on my ability to eat tainted meat. Just before taking a sip of soda, she said, "You're probably going to get trichinosis."

"Oh, no," I said without missing a beat, "trichinosis tastes totally different."

That soda got spat on the beauty bark, but almost. . . .

I just want to get this out there, for the record. If enough are aware of it coming, it might stop it from being the "thing" of the moment.

When Donald Trump loses next, be that (unlikely) as the GOP nominee or as (?) President, the headline somewhere will read:

No, You're Fired!

You likely heard it here first (or not). It's pretty obvious.

Anyone else think that the word hirsute might just be a bad spelling for "hairsuit"?

As great as Basil and Rosemary were together, things got even spicier when they met a couple of hot tomatoes with a nice Chianti. They all got stewed, and in thyme, things got…saucy.

"Okay," said the lead singer, "I think we need a name that simultaneously plays with objects representing stability and support, and described with terms denoting whimsy and randomness!"

The band thought. "Wobbly Ladder?" suggested the drummer.

"No!" chimed in the rhythm guitar, "Crumbling Pillar!"

"Rubber Crutch?" said keyboards.

The bass player, not really even looking up, snarked, "It's gotta be Loose Stool."

"Can we visit the sausage factory?" she asked. At that point, our road trip took a turn for the wurst.
