Corn on the Cob Chaser
So some Fleegans were at TNJ@B last night and the conversation was pretty typical. We had started off talking about cooking oil fuel converters for cars when I mentioned that I sure would love to be able to burn some high octane Original Recipe KFC oil, or even some nice Popeyes Spicy Fried Chicken From New Orleans oil. But then in a digression, I mentioned that what I really would've liked right at that moment was some of Popeye's corn on the cob. You know the kind that sits in a hot bath of butter water? Jaimie and Terica were like, "Awwwyeah!" Then Jaimie starts to wax poetic about how if she were in The Popeye's right now, she'd just ask for a cup of the butter water, and could they please salt the rim? "Oh, and could I have a Corn on the cob chaser to go with that?" she asks.
The big question of the evening for me was, "Does Popeyes serve the corn on the cob with a stick in its butt?" because someone in town does, but I can't remember who. Terica and I seemed to think that it was Popeyes...I think they also used to serve the corn in a plastic sleeve, kinda like the sleeve you receive your newspaper in on a rainy day. Imagine being the guy who came up with that one. A butter sleeve for corn on the cob...
IT man came in my office yesterday and threatened to shiv me if I didn't give him a dollar. I gave him a dollar and told him never again would I loan him money, with or without the threat of a shivin.' He went away. Today he was back, and he was threatening me silently again with his knife, only this time he was sharpening it while he was giving me the evil-eye. And while I ignored him as he was sharpening his knife while giving me the evil-eye, he cut himself and he bled because he wasn't watching what he was doing. Sighing, I told him to go wash the cut with soap and water while I went to get a bandaide. After I bandaged his finger, I told him that I would never bandage his finger again, with or without the threat of a shivin.' I think I need to get paid more than I do.
