Just because you were out of your gourd is no reason to resort to spore taste.

And I used to think you were such a fungi.

It's a sad knee'jerky reaction that onions are on the no fry list.

I'd quail about your superior pun, but I'm running low on puns. Maybe gator after I've learned a venison or two, I'll be bacon.

shadowwake: It's a sad knee'jerky reaction that onions are on the no fry list.

eh, I am not sure what exactly the author means by that, but I do not believe the FAA has banned onions on cargo flights. The author says "this particular load" I think he means that they did not allow THAT EXACT load to continue on the rest of the flight. I do load planning and hazmat inspection for a major express carrier and nothing about banning onions has come up here.

Is it you that's high or is it me that's high? Because I could not make any sense of that.

At least it's a break from them Broccoli Spears stories.

Onions are quite good at keeping flies away, and should be at the top of any "no fly" list, well ahead of leeks, scallions, bell peppers and radishes.

If you wish to attract flies, honey, sugar, molasses and anything over a B-cup will usually suffice.

I came in here and scanned for "belt".

This is a song about vegetables . . . they keep you regular; they're real good for ya.

Call any vegetable
Call any vegetable
Call it by name
Call any vegetable
Call one today
Call any vegetable
When you get off the plane
Call any vegetable
Call any vegetable
And the chances are good
Ooooh! The vegetable
Will respond to you

Some people don't go for prunes . . . I dunno . . . I've always found that if they . . .

Call any vegetable
Call any vegetable
Pick up your phone
Call any vegetable
Think of a vegetable
Call any vegetable
Lonely at home
Call any vegetable
Call any vegetable
And the chances are good
That a vegetable will respond to you-hoooo

RUTA-BAY-AY-AYGA RUTA-BAY-AY-AYGA
RUTA-BAY-AY-AYGA RUTA-BAY-AY-AYGA
RUTA-BAYYYYY . . .

A prune isn't really a vegetable. Cabbage is a vegetable.
