    Default Walmart crocs

    Crocodiles are on sale at Sam's Club...in China. I doubt we'll be seeing them anytime soon locally.

    Begs the question: Is there anything Walmart won't sell?

    How about a casket, everybody needs one of these. I picked this one out, but my wife isn't too keen on it!

    I've done some crazy things in my day. Can't say that I have ever done, or even thought about eating a live crocodile.

    Oh! Just realized the link. I'm a bit slow today.

    So what goes with croc meat? White wine? Red? Or whatever's left in the still?

    Perhap Veuve Cliquot Yellowboam Alligator but at $1,700 a bottle it's a bit out of my budget

    On the other hand, I've never made mead from GatorAde, but may have to give that a try.

    Of course at only an 88pt WS rating, the price seems a bit high...

    Any of their checkout clerks! Trust me, I've tried!

    I guess at that price it wouldn't be a candidate for making mimosa's or bellini's.

    My daughter spent some time in Guangzhou teaching English and says she's seen stranger things there.

    And as far as caskets are concerned, I don't want my kids to waste the money--I want them to do with me what we've done with my parents: cremate them, and every time one of us travels somewhere, we take a little of Mom and Daddy with them. They just got back from Italy.

    Errr...I guess they didn't actually come back, per se. It was a one-way trip for them, although my daughter did come home without them. They are, ah, presently enjoying Rome, Herculaneum, Florence, and Venice. As it were.

    I really like alligator meat but never tried crocodile. I'm sure it tastes the same either way.

    I was bored and in an evil mood. There was a doe-eyed girl at the check-out counter. I went next door to Oggi's and came back with about three pints of HOP-15 in me and decided that I wanted her to help me buy some stuff so I asked her boss how much it would be for her to be my "personal" shopper for a couple of hours.

    Her boss just looked at me like "Dude. . . are you for real?" I told her I was. We almost came to an agreement but at the last moment she waffled and folded like a house of cards. I guess my occaisional use of the word pimpin' probably got the better of her

    Same here. We're going into a couple of small walnut boxes and into the columbarium at our church. Take up much less space that way!

    I feel similarly. Since I'll be dead (and presumably won't care), I've told the hubby to throw my body over the back fence and let those neighbors deal with a decaying, skinky body. It will be my last revenge for those late night parties that don't end til 3 or 4 am.

    Really, though. I'm all for a simple pine box. I'm not sure if I want to be cremated, though.
