Beer, Beer, Glorious Beer!

Right off the top, let me say that I am no great beer expert.  I HAVE been drinking more suds lately and enjoying them, but I am nowhere near as well traveled in beer as I am in single-malt whisky. …Continue

A duck dump lake. Funny!

Spud, You GOT it.  Joe Penner was WAYYYY before my time, but adults in the neighborhood laughed when I was trying to find homes for all the damn mallard ducklings we had.  Dad finally loaded a bunch of them up, and took them to a lake where other people had dumped their extra ducks.

Wikipedia says that Joe Penner was a zany comic, noted for his famed catchphrase, "Wanna buy a duck?".  I get the idea that it was his signature phrase, and people in vaudeville used it at times as a humorous question, perhaps to elicit a smile or make a connection with another person.  Is that close?

This morning, for the first time in at least 20 years, possibly as much as 50 years, I ate some cornmeal mush.  It tasted very good.  

I didn't look at any recipe.  I just added what sounded good.  Some butter, some margarine, a little seasoned salt, a little parmesan seasoning, a little onion powder, a little soy sauce, and a little chili powder.

Felaine, what does "Ya wanna buy a duck?" mean?

Comment by sk8eycat on February 21, 2014 at 10:06am

Pat, I hear you!  I never buy brown eggs (especially "free range" because they can't be candled...I used to buy them sometimes, and often founds bits of blood and/or clumps of tissue in them.  So I stopped.


We used to have a pair of pet mallards, and within a year we were inundated with baby mallards...I was going around the neighborhood asking people "Ya wanna buy a duck?"  I didn't know that was an old vaudeville catch phrase, and couldn't understand why everyone was laughing at me. 

That was before I began to enjoy doing my own comedy routines. Obviously.

Years ago, I raised chickens. I used to 'candle' the eggs to make sure I wasn't going to crack open a chicken meat omelet in the pan at breakfast. 

Comment by sk8eycat on February 21, 2014 at 9:31am

I sometimes wonder if "pro-lifers" have qualms about cooking and eating fertilized chicken eggs.  (That's the only kind the local "health food" store sells.)  I wouldn't buy, or use, them on a bet.  But I have a very twisted mind.
