Good morning,

Thanks for the update, Rabbit. BW’s family are quite the winners in teh lottery of life. It makes me sad to read of their antics and just makes me want to hug you and BW and bring you some coffee and pastries.

Hope that the Texas weather and the bikers all pass by without harming any gerbils.

I’m off to work, but good luck and thoughts to everybody…I need to catch up later on the other posts. Work really sucks. It’s as if BW’s family were running a huge corporation.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, RabBiT, Fatwa, and Sven!

RaBbiT -- glad y’all are safe. Rain sounds good about now (here, not there).

Sven -- you’re a Good Gerbil ® I hope teh work suckage abates (without entering into unemployment territory).

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

Aw jeez, Sven; that’s a pretty scathing -- and true, I’m sure -- indictment.

I shall purchase an extra MegaMillions ticket for Saturday on your behalf. (Wish we could do something more tangible…)

Sven, that did make me laugh out loud, for real, not just an internet lol.

I had to go to pick up a present for Grand Nephew’s upcoming birthday. I decided afterwards to go to the Walmart on the way home for bread & a couple of other things. I saw something weird that I have never seen before in my life.
Yeah, at Walmart, right?
There was a bin of fresh ears of corn. I wanted to get a couple. An older lady was in a scooter & an elderly man was pawing through the corn. I waited while he made his selection. So he picks one up & pulls the husk all the way down & shows it to her. She nods & he proceeded to strip the corn completely and hand it to her. She then put it in a bag that had about 4 or 5 other ears. I was gawking by then. He discarded the husks in a trash can by the bin that was overflowing with corn husks and corn silk. Is this a common thing that I have missed all my life, or is this a “People of Walmart” thing? It’s not like the corn was priced by weight, either. Or maybe I have been shopping for corn incorrectly all these years. I must think on this.

I’ve never observed in-store shucking by customers at either of our local Supercenters; will keep my eyeballs peeled on my next visit to the produce section.

Haven’t seen that at any other stores in my life evar.

OTOH, I have seen many things creatures at Walmart I’ve never previously noticed anywhere…even in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“peeled”
When you peel your eyes, please discard the lids in the adjacent trash can. Thank you for shopping at Walmart.

LMAO!! I just put “in store corn shucking” in Bing. The 4th listing was someone saying “I just saw a group of Asians shucking corn in the store in San Francisco, leaving a big mess.” Then there were listings of images of in store corn shucking. Didn’t say if the store was a Walmart.
But really, you aren’t supposed to shuck them until right before you use them. I didn’t notice if the elderly couple had a pot of boiling water in her scooter basket or not. Maybe they did, it was Walmart, after all.

If she did, she might be a midwife.

Does she use the handlebars as stirrups?

Ahahahahahahahaaaaa!

Best to also make certain the KorpulentKart™ is turned off, lest it careen into a humongous aisle-impeding display of Frito-Lays products as teh baby’s crowning.

I hope they’re not this flavor:

You’ve won today’s thread, sir.

What flavor of dip would you recommend with those?

Some people like a sour cream-based dip, but a simple vinegar and water dip can be quite refreshing.

Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Heh.

FWIW, that’s significantly less crass than how I’d have responded to the same query.

Well, it took me a while to come up with something that wouldn’t earn me the ban hammer.
