What the Hell is a Malort? Some things just might be obscure on Fark after all.

I had to Google to find out that is a "bad-tasting" Chicago liquour, probably brewed in Al Capone's second best bath tub.

Things You Didn't Know About Malort, Chicago's Bad Tasting Liquor ...

https://www.thrillist.com/.../14-thin​g​s-you-didn-t-know-about-malort-thrilli​st-chicago
Mar 17, 2014 - The only flavor ingredient in Jeppson's Malort is wormwood, a bitter herb known for its ability to kill stomach worms and other parasites. ... Malort was one of the few beverages Carl Jeppson could taste. ... The liquor was sold door-to-door by Jeppson during Prohibition, with the loophole ...

Hey, wormwood was mentioned in the Bible, in fact it is the name of the killer asteroid or comet in the Revelation of Saint John the Divine.

Absinthe makes the heart grow colder.


Just a little joke for you wormwood lovers.

I have a bottle of Absenthe my nephew gave me. It takes sort of like licorice, aniseed or dog deworming medicine. I think it you should probably drink it very, very cold. It came with a slotted spoon so you can pour it over a sugar cube, or two, or three, according to taste.

I have sugar cubes. I don't drink a lot because of my meds--alcohol and grape-fruit can interfer with how quickly and how strongly they work. Contra-indicated.

Rewatching That 70's Show. I loved the "Hitchcock" episode. I think I spotted almost all of the movie paradoes, including Foreman's Mom, kitty feeding the birds for a friend.

Cool. I love paradies and that show did them very well and remarkably often for a show not jumping the shark in every episode.

If that's the same wild turkey, he gets around. I saw one this afternoon at 5 p.m. driving south on Kedzie in Humboldt Park. I glanced over at the park and saw this massive bird on the sidewalk being gawped at by a woman with a stroller. As soon as it registered what it was (I grew up in rural Missouri so I'm quite familiar), it flew low across the road in front of me and I nearly hit it. I've lived here 28 years and have never seen one in the city. I welcome our new Meleagris Overlord.

Neat. I never watched that show, and I wish I had. I've been thinking I should try to find it now that I've seen how good an actor Rami Malek is. It would be fun to see what he was like when he was starting out.

Rare for Chicago. We got woke up by a flock while camping. I think they were used to finding food scraps near tents.

Why did the turkey cross the road?
Because it was the weekend before Easter.

It's mind-blowing that this bird has been able to successfully navigate the heavy traffic and other dangers of the inner city, essentially walking and running along streets, alleys, and through parks.

Um, wild Turkeys can fly.

Not shocked. Grow something in your backyard. Giant ass raccoons love my Mexican neighbors

Wild turkeys. They run fast. But, they're like any other bird. They're an uncommon sight here in Northern Illinois. But, you spot them from time to time if you know where to look.
