Captain Caption VIII

"Well, thank Allah my mom's recipe book made it okay.
  Oh, here's my favorite, Shish Kabobs!
    'Alternate cube-size pieces of lamb or beef with equal
 chunks of vegetables on pre-soaked skewers.  Brush lightly
 with a vinaigrette
 or some other Italian dressing based sauce.
 Place gently on a barbecue grill
 set to medium heat.  Ensure each skewer is rotated and monitored closely as they easily char'
....whoa!
This is kinda ironic, huh?"

    1. Some people look at things and ask, "why?"
      Other people look at things and ask, "why not?"

  4. very off topic, but it reminds me of the original Gameboy that survived a blast from the Gulf War that some solider had brought with him in his luggage or something. Still plays games, though I'd bet the buttons are pretty stiff and melted.

  5. Looks like someone took the term 'Cook Book' a bit too literally.

  9. This reminds me of the first microwave my parents bought. Mom cooked with it for two years without removing the cookbook included inside. It was really gross after all that time.

    2. We had five dogs, though (not all at once) which were all named Duke (even the girl).
      Dad loved John Wayne.

  11. I'm thinking they might lump you into that "Evil Blasphemer" category. Get with Rushdie for good hiding places.
