How many chickens do I have to barter to get a piece?

So it's "yellow"?

/but not yellowcake, that's Utah

Was the guy who served the cake dressed liked Elvis?

Has anyone else noticed that "yellow" isn't really a word?  It's more like whay some slack-jaw would mumble when answering the phone.  It's not dignified enough to be a color (or especially a colour).  You have your green, your red, your blue, your white, your black... and then your "yellow".  WTF is that?  Too much of a pansy to have a hard consonant in your name, are you?

"Yellow" my ass.  I call upon all FARKers to get a properly awesome name (read: has a hard consonant) for the color soon to be formerly known as "yellow".  The only one I can think of is marigold and that is simply too pansy-ass of a name IMO.

Banana is right out.  No banana.  Fark banana.  Banana is just a pickle without genital warts yet and we all know where pickles have been.  I don't want to be thinking of pickles when I'm eating a banana shake from Rally's.

I read mobster as lobster and was very confused, and trying to figure out when Nevada got a seacoast.

Michigan's would taste like exhaust, take 50 laborers 16 ours of overtime with three union bosses watching to frost, and be red on the west half and blue on the east.  The actual cake part we'd leave out and instead replace it with Detroit IOUs.  We'd leave off the UP since no one lives up there anyhow.  We'd serve it with water since we're surrounded by it (and it's cheap) but will serve it with MSU diary store ice cream since that shiat is amazing.

And the cake smells like 12,000 people living in the sewers underneath Las Vegas.

It's near Otisburg.

With a cake that big, was it baked for Glenn Manning?
 
2014-03-23 10:28:36 AM
Yeah, well... I'm gonna go bake my own cake, with hookers and mobsters and shattered dreams. In fact, forget the cake!
 
2014-03-23 10:36:50 AM
Don't forget to save a slice for the Canino brothers, Dino and Eddie.
 
2014-03-23 10:39:58 AM
I was gonna send Chumlee and Corey to go pick up the cake, but then I realized they'd take the whole day and probably ruin it, so you know what? Screw it. I'm gonna go pick it up myself. Pops, you're in charge.

I'll have a very large slice of hookers and shattered dreams please..

Will it be for sale on Pawn Stars next week?

Rick, Corey, and Chum going out for a cake sounds like a 3 stooges episode.

We could call it by its spanish name, amarillo. Except here in texas we have a city with that name and the hicks pronounce it ah-ma-rill-low.

Nevada actually had "desert lobsters" back in the day, at least until state officials decided they were an invasive species and shut them down.

I personally drove by that place several times. I think it was a year or two ago when the protest signs complaining about the shutdown of the stand finally either faded out or were removed - personally, I always thought it was due to water consumption issues. There's now a really tasty hamburger place down the street.

Just take the mortgage check and go to the black jack table and put it on one hand.

If you win, leave.
If you lose, leave.

Green is not a creative color.

It did in dinosaur days.  There's an ichthyosaur fossil near Berlin in the middle of the state, not real far from Gabbs....

Funny they had a guy dressed up as Mark Twain there.  He was against statehood. Or at least he said so in "Roughing It" his first book.   You can get it free on project Gutenberg, along with his other works.

It's a good read.  Starting with a wagon train trip from MO to NV, and a trip to Hawaii, and ending with his first public lectures.  That's where the character of Mark Twain really came from.  Those lectures.

Xanthic is a perfectly cromulent real word for yellow.
