On impulse, I bought some microwaveable burritos at the store, something I haven't eaten in literally decades. Jose Ole brand, uber-cheap ($1 each). They actually taste pretty good, and have an agreeable texture, but they're best eaten in the dark, so as not to see the gluey greenish-brown substance with which they're filled.
I've been eating a lot of grilled chicken thighs lately, usually as sandwiches with Swiss cheese, and sometimes tomato. I've discovered that Italian salad dressing, the good kind with chunks of veggie in it, makes an absolutely peerless sauce for grilled chicken.
Evolution in action. Had they paused for a moment of silence beforehand, I'm sure they would have heard Uncle Charles' grim chuckle. Why on earth would anyone think a .50 express round wouldn't shoot through an encyclopedia and keep on going? They had 30 people watching, and no-one thought this might not be a good idea? Neither one took five minutes to look online and see how powerful this thing was? Neither one thought it might be well-advised just to shoot a book first and see?!? I find it very hard to feel sorry for either of these people.
Some people want Trump's animatronic statue in the Hall of Presidents not to be wired for sound. I can't think of any more appropriate animatronic POTUS to have a foghorn installed for a mouth. I love Donald Trump, and think he's easily the best POTUS of my lifetime (and that includes W, Kennedy, and Bill Clinton), but honesty does compel one to admit that he can sometimes be a touch loud and bombastic.
I once compared W to Yosemite Sam. It occurs to me that Foghorn Leghorn would be a good match for Trump. We both share the sign of the Loud Rooster in the WB Zodiac :)
