    Chic-Fil-A is today holding a promotion, in which they are giving free meals to any customer coming in looking like a cow. For many Americans, this will not be a difficult task.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.

      May I suggest that your greyhound pulled Bus NOT stop at this particular Rest A-REA-So after 4 years we get a rest area with port-a-potties-a new name for the Service Area Food available on the Interstates. It sounds as though you have overdosed on Livermush and Sonic Ice–mixed in the same cup. Did you wash your hands ??? Better do it again when you hit the NY Border-wait…that might NOT be a good idea. Thanks for thinking of a reunion,though I'll try SLT's Captain Crunch Chocolate Cereal.

    I rediscovered the kid in me during a 24 hour marathon barbequing over the 4th of July weekend. We had a great time lighting farts with fireworks until the cops showed up (not really but I enjoy the visual AleeD). Anywho, wondering what to put on the barbie next led me to some web surfing. and I found this:
    I don't know quite what to think of this dish. For some reason I think it'd be fun to serve something like this at the next big family gathering.

      Spelliffiddy? Definition please.

      July 9, 2014 at 10:38 am |
      • AleeD® @ RC

        Why? Doesn't it sound like a positive word?

        July 9, 2014 at 12:11 pm |
        • RC @AleeD®

          Solid point. Can I steal it?

          July 9, 2014 at 12:31 pm |
        • AleeD® @ RC

          Why soitenlee. The registration mark is only on AleeD, not content ... and you see how well THAT works when the trolls are loose. Hubby once tripped over his tongue trying to say "specifically" and it came out "spelliffiddy." It's meaning has become whatever we want it to be.

          July 9, 2014 at 12:37 pm |
        • RC @AleeD®

          Ha! Love it.!

          July 9, 2014 at 1:51 pm |
        • Weeds

          spelliffiddy – I bet that its something like this. Don't say cat and wax and chains together because the mod-bot will chew your play toys.

          July 9, 2014 at 4:19 pm |
    • Weeds

      Does that mean the same thing as "put the p***y on the chain wax"?

      - Note from Kat: that word is on the filter so I edited.

      July 9, 2014 at 2:56 pm |
      • Weeds

        lulz, mod-bot got me by the kitten. Ain't that a bunch of balls.

    July 7, 2014 at 2:59 pm |
    • AleeD®

      It does when the locals kept sleep from someone up by lighting their farts with fireworks – 'til the cops were called. Can't fathom who would do such a thing. >;->

      How's the move date coming Noice Laydee? Were you able to give your shopping therapists a delivery date?

      July 7, 2014 at 3:15 pm |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@AleeD

        Oh, I think I know someone who might do such a thing...ha! Waiting, and waiting on DWP still...but I did give delivery dates, subjecttochangeatanytime.

        It's funny because now they want to fund and get their money, so everyone is bending over to let me start moving stuff in this week, with or without electricity!

        July 7, 2014 at 3:31 pm |
        • AleeD® @ ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

          Of course they are. Can't have their move-in record tarnished. Turds. Stand your ground – 'lectrical pun intended. ;)
