Mid-Week Humor

I’m trying to clean up my folders and I ran across a bunch of humorous memes and one pic.

a) This is true, and b) it’s even funnier if you’re from the Upper Mid-West

Actually, it’s in the oven at 60 degrees. Yes, I’m that big of a nerd to notice that.

Guts-and-Glory

I love Venn diagrams, so this made me give a nice audible snort. More can be found at Vennoid.

I feel that no explanation is necessary.

Memorial Day

Just want to give a quick shout out to all the Veterans who have served and sacrificed everything for the things that we all too often take for granted.

For everyone else, here’s a couple of cartoons from the legendary WWII cartoon Willie & Joe, written by Bill Mauldin.

Fun Fact For The Day

Because I was at a friend’s bachelor all day yesterday, I thought this would be apropos:

Americans walk an average of 730 miles per year and drink an average of 20.5 gallons of beer per year. Which means that the average American gets 35.5 miles to the gallon.

A couple of unique beers I’ve had recently (not yesterday):

A nice lager from the Zamkowe Brewery in Poland, which is almost 700 years old (est. 1321)!

A very malty ale with a fun name from the Lagunitas Brewery.

A Pickled Snack

A couple of months ago I had a free weekend, so I decided to head north to visit the fam.  Specifically, to visit Grandma.  She gets lonely sitting in the nursing home even though Mom and everyone else tries to pop in on her as often as they can.  If I’m away too long, Grandma starts to bug Mom about whether I’ve called or not.  So, it just makes everyone’s life easier when Grandma is happy.  I don’t mind though, she keeps me on my toes.

Unfortunately, Lindz wasn’t available for this trip (Grandma wasn’t happy about this, she likes it when Lindz visits).  But just to let Lindz know what she was missing out on (food-wise, that is), I sent her a picture of a snack I cobbled together out of the fridge.

Food that’ll put hair on your chest: pickled herring and pickled turkey gizzards.

Lindz was amused, she sent back a picture of pizza rolls and juice and told me that I was missing out.  Although, I did get the impression that she didn’t feel like she was missing out on anything with my snack.

Brinner

BRINNER (brin-er) noun; (1) An evening meal that consists of breakfast menu items.  (2) A contraction of the words breakfast and dinner.

Usage: Man, I love having pancakes and bacon for dinner!  It’s my favorite brinner!

Origin: I heard it from Matt D. sometime last year (see above usage).  I have no idea where he got it from.

One evening, I was rooting around the kitchen looking for ideas on what to make for supper and I was coming up with a complete blank.  Out of desperation, I asked Lindz if egg sandwiches were OK.  Fortunately, she said yes because we may not have eaten otherwise.  She even threw in the idea of using some breakfast patties that we picked up at the store.  Of course I had to one up her and found a partial bag of mozzarella that needed to get used and decided to throw that into the mix.

I toasted and buttered some bread, made a couple of over-easy eggs, and fried off the patties.  The real stroke of genius (hey, it’s my story and I’ll tell it how I want!) was to pan fry the cheese so that it would melt and get a nice crust on it.  Assemble the parts and enjoy with several napkins.

I laughed out loud when I opened the package and saw how big the sausage patties were.

This is the reason why Lindz told me fry eggs over-medium for sandwiches in the future.

I love comics.
