We went to Sam's Club today to pick up some mega-packages of perishable foods because I like a challenge.

We were walking through the bakery area looking for Triscuits to go with the 1lb package of goat cheese that somehow made it's way into the cart. As we were making our second round through with no luck I noticed an intriguing purple bag that said "Mystery Chips".

Sy: Mystery Chips?

SSB: No, we're not getting any food that has the word "Mystery" in the name. I prefer all my food to be solved.

Dan Quayle was a great man (for malaprops.)

“If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.”

“The future will be better tomorrow.”

“A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls.”

Name a single Democrat, or even just one, who could utter such utterances with equal equality.

Ha! You can't, can you?!

I think they put something in the air of these warehouse stores to make you lose all judgement. "Say, I could really use 18 lbs of cashews and a pallet of soap!"

Indigo Red, LOL!! Yeah he was such a funny guy. The fact that he didn't realize the silliness of what he was saying made him that much more funny!

DrMax, it's hard not to get the drum of shampoo when it is only a little more than a 32oz bottle in the regular stores. But you don't realize how difficult a drum of shampoo is to manage in the shower.

June, next time I go, if they are still there, I will look. And thanks for the heads-up on your move.

Once, someone knocked on our door. SSB answered it. The guy told SSB that he had an order cancelled and wanted to know if we wanted to buy any meat, cheap.

I had that knock on my door, except it was about furniture. I called the police.

How do you buy furniture from a door to door sales guy? Did he say it was "on the back of his truck"?

SSB was approached by some guy outside his work that wanted to sell him electronics out of a truck once too. It is so OBVIOUSLY WRONG!!!

My brother bought me the Finding Nemo DVD for my birthday a few years ago that he bought for $5 out of the back of some guys car.

totally legit, I'm sure.

can I be arrested as an accessory?

(did you buy any meat, sylvana?)

SSB said "No thanks."

You'd make a beautiful accessory, ESC!

I answered the door once to some old crazy looking smelly man asking if he could sharpen any of my knives. I think that was the craziest thing I have ever answered the door to.

"What a terrible thing it is to lose one's mind, or to not have a mind..."

I think Bush Sr. went out and got him a dopey VP (vaugely reminiscent of someone) to get the public used to electing a person who talked like retard. Fool me once, George, shame on you...uh....hmm...
