I’m afraid of expired milk, lime jello and Tuna Casserole. Guess I’ve led a sheltered life.


What the hell is it?
Ahhh, Lutefisk. After the larvae-ridden cheese, it’s a blessed relief to sample a clean, down-to-earth Scandinavian recipe.

A little too clean.

Lutefisk is a traditional Norwegian dish featuring cod that has been steeped for many days in a solution of lye, until its flesh is caustic enough to dissolve silver cutlery.

Wait, it gets worse …
For those of you who don’t know, lye (potassium hydroxide/sodium hydroxide) is a powerful industrial chemical used for cleaning drains, killing plants, de-budding cow horns, powering batteries and manufacturing biodiesel. Contact with lye can cause chemical burns, permanent scarring, blindness or total deliciousness, depending on whether you pour it onto a herring or your own face. Or, so the lutefisk industry would have us believe.

Fought him off mostly.  But he sure as hell wasn’t taking any shit off of him.

“I don’t know how I got the power,” said the victim, Reinaldo Herrera.

It was a setup, by the victim’s nephew.  Police arrested him and the assailant, 21 year old Santos Zelaya.

Pain train.  Good for you sir.

Yewts are feelin’ mightly low. Utah ranks dead-last in depressed people.

Michael? Eddie? R.G.? Lipstick and Sobek? Sorry for you as well. The bottom ten: Wyoming, Ohio, Missouri, Idaho, Oklahoma, Nevada, Rhode Island, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Utah.

I had my own angle on the study, but realized lack of Spurwing Plover and Wickedpinto comments would affect all states equally. So I had to toss that theory.

I guess I come here for therapy sometimes. Thanks for that.

A more nuanced term than I had realized.

I suppose it is old, but I had not previously seen this video until I accidentally stumbled across it today while doing extensive research for a post on slang expressions from the Old West.

It happens, but you don’t normally expect it to be so blatant.

As you can see, he made a few tiny changes, and used the same pic, but its pretty much my post. From there, I learned that Pat found out Seventh Son stole my post when he discovered that his own guest-post at Ankle Biting Pundits was also plagiarized by Seventh Son. Seventh Son ain’t subtle. And of course, he has no comments on his site, and no way to contact him. Nice, right?

Then it gets mighty interesting, as the quest to identify Seventh Son takes an unexpected turn.
