the management now looked on in aghast horror, fully realizing now that the extra wet wipes I had asked for to go with my wings were not for the end of the meal, but rather the beginning

very disappointed with Costcos polish sausage.


We find ourselves in a surgically clean operating room, a staff of nurses surround the doctor- all are fully dressed in sterile scrubs. The doctor is sweating profusely, a nurse pats his face with a clean, dry cloth

"Ok, I'm ready" the doctor says. A 2-foot wide round silver tray with a dome shaped cover is revealed when a sterile green sheet is removed. When the domed lid is taken off, a freshly prepared grilled cheese sandwich is there for all to see.

"Lunch time! The doctor announced in a voice muffled by his mask. Everyone else plunked down their germ free lunch containers onto the operating table, fresh out of the autoclave

Eugene V. Dabs

a really crowd-pleasing dish:

4 tbsp. chile powder
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 large sprig dill, broken
1 gallon kirkland brand dishwashing detergent (NOT dishwasher, V IMPORTANT)
1 whole salmon, head, tails and fin removed, skin on, gutted

blend all dry ingredients gently, then season salmon inside and out, and place dill inside. place in instant pot on saute for 2 minutes each side, just to firm up fish and provide a fond. add entire gallon of kirkland brand dishwashing detergent, switch to low pressure (make sure your steam release is closed!!!!!), and set timer for 3 hours.

walk away, and in 3 hours, you get a delicious, crowd pleasing, HEALTHY and MOST IMPORTANTLY--VERY CLEAN--dish for your family.

I was excited when Lays accepted my submission for Clorox Lemon Wipes chips, but when they insisted on using artificial flavor...I told them they might as well stop pretending they understand clean eating and do a Febreze flavor chip instead.


The doctor said I needed more greens in my diet so I've been chowing down on scouring pads on my lunch breaks


my hated nemesis has begun scattering the candylike laundry pods in my known haunts. they realize i am nearly powerless against detergent which looks far too much like candy. please, if anyone has a tip, help me.
