(ala Larry King):
Actually, all of my thoughts are pretty random...Mom
and I finally caught "Star Wars III" at
the 2nd run theatre last week. Without exaggeration,
it was the greatest experience one could have in a
theater . . . . Hot tip: Washington insider Jack Anderson
likes the Seattle Mariners to win the Western Division
Why isn't "Mork and Mindy"
available on DVD? Nobody does light comedy better
than Robin Williams. . . . How does NetFlix do it?
. . . . I still find it strange that Jimmy Carter
won the Nobel Peace Prize.
I was at the fair with some buds
last fall and there was a booth featuring various
barbequed Alligator treats, The other, Other, OTHER
White Meat, the sign said....If I could invest in
a National Park, that park would be the Petrified
Forest. . . . I've got to confess, I'm a little scared
about Iran's attitude towards Rap music.. . . Is there
a more underrated Van Patten than Tim?
Gang, if you only have one movie
to see this spring, it has to be "The Sound of
Music", Julie Andrews is simply a genius.....It
seems kind of funny to say this but I think Johannes
Sebastian Bach is underrated as a musician . . . Whatever
happened to animal guy Marlon Perkins? They should
bring back "Wild Kingdom".
By now most of you have settled into Spring-like conditions,
and some of you may be like me and get a rabid case of spring
fever (general laziness inspired by the desire to be outside
doing nothing as opposed to doing nothing indoors). Well,
I've got it bad, I've spent the better part of the last couple
of weeks in my lawn chair in the backyard searching the classifieds
to see if they need a part time shelf stocker at the Piggly
Wiggly (you know, the whole thing about launching my next
upward career move) and reading some newspapers. You know
a while back the Weekly World News reported that Rush Limbaugh
secretly met with Space Aliens?
Speaking of careers, I'll tell you about
my first job I ever had.
For a time I worked as a laborer on a large chicken farm.
It had 10 barns, each barn held 60,000 egg laying leghorn
beasts, so that's what? One million chickens? Anyway, it seems
like each one of these chickens ate it's own weight in food
every day, and of course made their own weight in "dookey"
every day as well. The chickens themselves were suspended
in cages 3 layers high over a 10 foot deep pit that contained
all of the "dookey". Just imagine a barn 500 yards
long, 60,000 hens doing their thing into this deep pit. Nice
image, eh? Well I was one of the lackeys who got to clean
out these pits. With a shovel. The chickens of course continued
to do their business while I was down there shoveling. They
are heartless creatures. Not only that but they forgot my
I remember a verse I wrote at the time:
The chickens are the reason
this world is in decay
I'm going to make
those leghorns pay
headless chickens peck at me
with beaks yet to be formed
sending waves of pain throughout
wiping clean my sword.
After a few weeks at that job, lemme tell
ya, getting a new job at Wal Mart as a box boy seemed like
I had scaled the corporate ladder into Valhalla!
Since then I have made it a point to eat
as many chickens as I could. I'm a big guy...I've eat alot
of them over the years. I feel vindicated!
The chefs at Glutenfreeda.com haven't had
my up close and personal experience with these devious creatures,
but they have spent countless hours chopping them up, filleting
them and cooking them in every possible way to Sunday. Looks
like about 400
recipes on chicken alone.
Well, I've tried, as a nearly temporary
employee of Glutenfreeda.com, to try as many recipes in the
as possible...and of course I spent a considerable amount
of time eating the vermin who ruined my innocence...my youth!
Without any further ado, after sampling
hundreds of delicious chickens and GF recipes, I present my
top three choices (judging from the stars that appear when
you click on the links, other subscribers like them as well).
