I am reminded of a line from 'First Blood'. Richard Crenna

Yep, when I was a youngun I ran around with a real racy crew: We ate minnows, itty-bitty garter snake heads, bugs, we gathered crayfish from the creek. Just about anything on a dare--as long as it was small enough not to chew. Most of it raw. Gimme a kiss, Martha .

When I was in Boy Scouts and went camping, we all brought guns, shot those little red squirrels, and skinned them for fun. This would usually keep us busy all day. In the evening, around the camp fire, we would plot how to get someone to eat X-Lax.

I'll take your word for it, but I've heard that "moose turd pie", doesn't taste at all like chicken.

Actually, I was stone cold sober when I tried the Shark Fin. If I would have been 'In the bag', I might not have realized how bad it really was! *- I did notice that the 'regular' Icelandic folks at my table were not eating any of the Shark Fin, with the exception of the Guy that brought me!

I'm with ya there, JG. I never drink carbonated sodas, unless there's REALLY nothing else available. I drink a lot of the imitation juice drinks tho.

I only drink sodas if there's a shot of liquor in it. Jack+coke or rum+coke for me! Otherwise, tap water.

Then you're in for a holiday treat....

"Seattle-based Jones Soda has brought back its line of goofy holiday sodas, including such flavors as turkey and gravy, wild herb stuffing and pumpkin pie.."

Re: So, frugal people, what DO you allow yourselves?

I can't remember the exact joke, but I heard it on Johnny Carson years ago:

How do you make Lutafisk?

You take the fish caught over the summer, pile them up behind the outhouse, pee on them everyday until New Year's Eve, then serve.

I agree, sometime I feel sorry for her matrimonial situation too. But when it's good it's very very GOOD ok .

Dan,
I actually did this puzzle -- particularly slow morning I'm afraid.
What is with these lutefisks -- are they rotten fish or something? Obviously I'm not a minnesotan or I would know.

Re: So, frugal people, what DO you allow yourselves?

I love my diet coke. When I was in law school I had a Tab and a smoke every day for breakfast. Then rode my bicycle 10 miles to school through heavy traffic.
