Every day is a gift.

Mostly the kind of gift where you smile and act grateful and then never use it.

The official guides say it "tastes like ass" for what it's worth.

There has been a story going around for a few years about someone who either called the 800 number for a company making frozen dinners or something similar, or (maybe less probably) was given a low grade on a cooking assignment in a home economics class. The instructor said to the ticked-off person that the food he or she had prepared tasted like shit, or the caller told the customer service person that their product tasted like shit. The customer service agent or student, without missing a beat, nonplussed the customer or instructor with "Just how do you know what shit tastes like?" or even "Well, I guess you would know, buttlick" or something similar.

It still amazes me: if you have a problem or want to find something just google it.
Google is Alice's Restaurant.

I wrote a check out today and got the year right. It's hard to change an 8 into a 9.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold. They also say revenge is sweet.

So basically revenge is ice cream.

Back in the day, drinking straws were made out of paper, not plastic. Why haven't they been reintroduced?

They have been. Cornstarch, too. I haven't seen a ton of them around Madison, but last time we were at Mint Mark they had paper straws that looked like green bamboo:

In hindsight it seems quite logical that Mongolian throat singing would lead to Mongol Metal, but I never saw it coming. How strange.

How about a thread etiquette thread? It seems like that's the real issue, isn't it?
