ruin your appetite

Last night, hiding out in the A/C

Me, drinking a Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale and digesting the world's best onion rings: "Heh. Obama gave his personal chef the title of "Senior Policy Advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives."

Mike, not even looking up from his book: "Yeah, well, Caligula made his horse a consul of Rome."

Mike, looking up from his book, sounds pretty smart indeed!

Now that is some high-test, weapon-grade snark, there.

Using Hitler in a comeback always comes across as pedestrian. Caligula is a refreshing change.

I need to pepper more of my insults with the emperor. And when that fails, Malcolm McDowell will do.

The real question is - what year was the Bigfoot?

Hey, there's worse people he could have chosen. Based on past performance, I'd have expected the job to be filled by a guy who doesn't believe in eating.

Lovin Mike's comment, but not so much the Bigfoot. I tried a barleywine style once & could hardly choke it down. I was in college at the time and I actually gave it away.

Actually that bottle looks familiar, it might have been the Sierra Nevada Bigfoot.

So that's the precedent for putting a horse's patootie in charge.

"Based on past performance, I'd have expected the job to be filled by a guy who doesn't believe in eating."

Or even worse, a Vegan.

Oh, yeah, comments like that are why Mike should blog more often.

And that's why you love him. I mean, besides that you promised to.

yeah, but the horse couldn't cook -or caucus- worth a damn.
