If scientists could develop a chicken with 4 wings, only half of the number of chickens would have to die for the same amount of chicken wings for Super Bowl Sunday. And you’d only use half the feed. :thinking: See? I come up with solutions once in a while. :roll_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Reminds me of a relative who stalked proudly into the butcher’s shop one day and asked for 8 chicken legs “… and make sure they’re all back ones.” Talk about pride before a fall.

:rofl: That’s hilarious! I read my post and yours to my wife. Her response? “You guys are sick” (as she shook her head). What!? If you don’t mind, I think the next time I have to go to the deli, I’m going to ask the clerk if their chicken legs are all hind legs. Then I’m going to count how many seconds it takes for that to sink in. :smiling_imp: :laughing:

I think I’m going to try that one out myself tomorrow…I’ll keep you posted :wink:


#165

Keep a straight face whatever you do! :smiling_imp:

:thinking: I wonder if there’s still any alcohol left in them? :smiley: At $10.58 for what I usually eat at a time (sometimes twice in a row :yum:), that would be pretty expensive ice cream for me.

Has this ever happened to you? As I went to come back inside, I opened the storm door, then the inside door. As I was closing the storm door I apparently didn’t get my foot in fast enough… BANG! :roll_eyes: Then as I tried to shut the inside door quietly so as to not wake my wife up - it was 4:00 AM - again… BANG! I caught the edge of my boot with the door. :unamused: I thought, “Oh come on now!” Then I heard, “Go to bed! I’m waking you up in 3-1/2 hours!” I guess I woke my sleeping beauty up! :rofl: (And she went to bed a little over 6 hours ago. :laughing: Oh well… Guess I better get to bed or she’ll be pouring water on my face in a couple of hours. Oops! She just announced she’s getting me up at 7! Good night! :neutral_face:

“While the ice creams are infused with liquor, each one has an ABV of less than half a percent”…not much!


#169

Great to see smaller towns bring themselves back from the “brink of extinction” and create “community” again…


#170

Well, they’re no fun! :laughing:


#171

@EmeraldEyes, we need to know what happened!


#172

:astonished: Oh yeh, I forgot about that :thinking: I’ve slept since then :roll_eyes: :laughing:

So anyway, I did go the deli counter that day and asked for 4 chicken legs and I told the young lad to make sure they were all back legs, “'cos I don’t want those scrawny front one’s with no meat on them” I said. And he paused for a second and checked the queue, then leaned over the counter and whispered “that’s ok, the scrawny ones are actually the chicken’s wings” :open_mouth: :rofl:
I think he might have thought I was bit senile and he was trying to be discreet to spare my embarrassment :smile: Or he could have just been getting his own back. Anyway, I just burst out laughing and said “you got me there”! :rofl:
But of course I had to tell him I was only pulling his leg because I wanted a whole chicken anyway, so I could make soup with the carcass next day :blush:


#173

I do believe he was spot on and realized what you were trying to do and had a quick come back. Good one on his part!

Was that with or without a pun intended? :smiley:
Now I can’t wait to get to the supermarket myself! By the way, I told my wife what you did and what happened. She looked up from the game she was playing (Candy Crush) and had the biggest grin on her face. :smiley:


#174

Pulling his back leg or front leg? :grin::grin:

Yeah! I finally got to ask a kid behind the deli counter about chicken legs! :laughing: There were about 4 customers waiting in line while two employees were waiting on us. One employee - an older gentleman - was slicing some meat for a customer. The other - a young kid - had the misfortune to wait on me. :smiling_imp: I asked him if the chicken legs were fresh, to which he responded, “Yes they are. I just put them out 10 minutes ago.” That’s when I asked, “Are they all hind legs or mixed?” The older man behind the counter just cracked a smile out of the corner of his mouth. (He must have a sick sense of humor also. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) The young kid stood there… not knowing what to say… or didn’t realize what I had asked. After almost 10 seconds he looked at me with a very sincere look on his face and said, “As far as I know they’re all hind legs. I’m not sure what we do with the front…” And he stopped himself and started laughing! So did everyone else! :rofl: Then the poor kid’s face got so red! :rofl: He almost looked relieved when I told him I really didn’t want any chicken legs, but I just thought I’d ask about them. With that I turned away… smiling at the other customers who were still chuckling. I guess everyone turned out in a better mood because then they actually started talking to one another whereas before this stint they just stood there looking around in silence. So that paid off rather well. :wink:

Next time, ask if they have wings. Then, ask if they are corn-fed wings or oat-fed wings, because you heard oat-fed wings are meatier than corn-fed ones.

Then, ask if they come with sauce. Make a point to mention some fast food place that provides sauce. Then… absent-mindedly comment that you never understood where from chickens that they have sauce in their bodies…


#177

You could also hold up a bag of potatoes to a young clerk and ask, “were all of these grown or were some of them just dug up?”

Here’s one that I haven’t used in years - courtesy of my father, the “King of Corn” as my mom called him. If a cashier looks bored or tired just say, “if you sing while you work, the day will go faster - unless you get stuck on the words.”

I didn’t know they used the water for these products…lets hope they don’t contain the sediments like the ice cores of Antarctica…

:flushed: So it’s not global warming after all…it’s those drunken distilleries for their vodka makeup manufacturers who’re stealing it so all those glamorous BP’s can look like this at the end of Happy Hour
image Oh joy :rofl:

I’m sorry… my hand will not let me come near the heart for this post. LOLOL
