Comments: So Many Lines Crossed...

Do they know sometimes the head is still "alive" after it's chopped off?

I'd take fried Chinese over meal worms any day. Who knows, maybe meal worms give off that "new car" smell when they decompose -- maybe.

TN- They might. It was discussed kind of... although I got confused as T kept talking about 'when it didn't work' as in the guillotine didn't take the head off and the person was still alive. So I'm not sure... but I got the impression that RINGO does... but not Bones.

Bob- Oh I've had green peas ferment in my car. It can't be worse than that.

The green peas incident is what gave me the title of the book I'll never write, "Something is Fermenting in my Car."

Can I just tell you? I love boys!

It's so unfortunate (but very, mentally, safe) that my daughter will never meet your boys...

"I finally said, “Enough.” "

Personally, i think you should cultivate these conversations in your boys. Perhaps someday they could elevate to the position of US Supreme Court Justice and we would then live in a much more just and safe society when they brought back the public guillotine, which i'm all for by the way. Of course, if they would take some advice from an old guy in OK at that time..."lets make it heavier, much heavier, so it can be lowered, not fall, onto the heads of those social degenerates.
Perhaps a Damoclesian sword for the lesser offenders."

The guillotine thing... its too gruesome for me. I don't like the whole 'head is still alive' thing. Blech.

But I'm all about public execution. Hell, I'm OK if the televise it... but I think I'd prefer to have them watch another method.

In the case of someone who committed a crime against a child, it should be televised nationally and I think a firing squad would be perfect.

I used to have to feed meal worms to our glass lizard when I was a preschool teacher. Those meal worms REALLY smelled after a while. Tell the boys the hamsters smell like flowers compared to the meal worms.

I think I love your family! I am trying to imagine what 90 gallons of mealworms would look like, and it's a pretty roiling mental visual :) In a strange way, it really would be kind of cool ... definitely a boy thing, though!

And ... Chinese food? LOL! But, I wonder ... would Mexican food give you gas? And could you take that crispy or soft shell?
