Trick Or Treat, I guess...
Gosh, only two months left in this year...

This time of year, you can see pumpkins on sale everywhere. Stores must not be really too worried about pumpkin shoplifting...I mean, there's always a huge crate or two full of pumpkins outside every grocery store this time of year. But I must ask, if you're going to steal a pumpkin, wouldn't this be the time of year to do so? I can just see it now...some guy standing on a street corner in a black trench-coat..."hey, buddy, you wanna buy a pumpkin?" Black-market pumpkins, how about that.

I must admit that I have NEVER gotten used to the taste (or lack thereof) of pumpkin pie. It's supposed to be such an all-around crowd pleaser, but I've always thought it just tasted kinda gross. I can work up the nerve to eat a slice, though, if there happens to be some Cool-Whip (registered trademark) nearby...I can use it to disguise the taste of the pie. And so the pie becomes (barely) tolerable. Reminds me of the food-camouflage trick I used whenever the dormitory cafeteria served fried liver. It always came a with baked potato, so I'd put sour cream on the potato and cover the liver with it too. Quite good, actually.

Speaking of that, remember when our notorious former Vice-President Dan Quayle misspelled potato as "potatoe"? I believe he was thinking of the PLURAL of 'Potato', namely, "Potatoes". So he dropped the "s", but he left the "e" in. So he may have been more capable of thought than previously believed possible. He didn't make a dumb mistake; instead he thought of the plural of "potato" and made an educated, but still misguided attempt to spell the word. That's my take on it anyway.

So anyway, in observance of October, and all things pumpkin, I present the following photo-satire...


I swiped this foto from www.spokesmanreview.com/blogs/hbo. And if you make me a pie, make it APPLE.

and I thought I was the only person in the world who didn't like pumpkin pie.
Now apple pie that is another story.
Happy National dessert day

Ms. Jinx, I not only don't like pumpkin pie, I have NEVER drank Egg Nog. I keep getting this visual picture of liquid egg yolks with chicken beaks sticking out of the mess, and I can't bring myself to try it. Who the heck wants to drink an EGG???
