Food Thoughts on Friday


My Haikus for this week are food related. My favorite foods are represented in these four Haikus and coincidentally make an excellent (and manly) meal! I usually order this in some variation when I go out to eat.

Fresh cut or curly
seasoned salted vinegared
French fried spud goodness

Chocolate, vanilla
soft served or hand packed and scooped
We all scream for it

Sorry poor Angus
Grilled mushrooms and onions
top medium rare

Oh green vegetables
sadly I need you to stay
a regular guy

Haiku Friday


Well you just can't participate in enough memes. I thought I would try my hand at poetry. Oh I've posted original stuff before. So this shouldn't be too painful (for me at least. You may cringe.) I have decided to do politics. Yeah big surprise there.  Carter and Gore have been in the news lately so here are a couple for them.

Jimmy E. Carter
The worst President ever
Please just go away.

Albert Gore Junior
Thank  you for the internet
Climate change is crap

Barack Hussein Obama has described Pennsylvanians and middle Americans as biitter. I got your bitter right here. Oh and here's one for your wife too.

Obama's decree
To God, guns, alien-hate
I cling bitterly

Michelle Obama
You can't be a First Lady
'Till your'e proud lady

The Hoff


David Hasselhoff is officially divorced. As part of the settlement he gets to keep "The Hoff".  It used to be that when woman married a man she took his name. Apparently today if you are celeb enough the man has to fight to take it back during the divorce.
