Venous, pronounced “Venus”

My original idea for Pete’s misunderstanding may have been funnier, but I was afraid it would hurt someone’s feelings. (I don’t mind causing offense, but this was just making fun of someone’s name and that seemed needlessly hurtful. It’s a blurry line.)

Waffle Additives

Waffles with chocolate chips are my favorite. I tried adding M&Ms, but I think it would have worked better with the minis. I used to put pecans or walnuts in my waffle mix, but decided they maintain more of their crunch (and just as much of their flavor) if sprinkled atop after baking. You don’t really care, do you?

Jar-Jar Strikes Back

Actually, I don’t like referring to the famed director as “Jar-Jar Abrams” because I think the character of Jar-Jar was a more positive contribution to the Star Wars franchise than anything Mister Abrams has done (or is likely to do). I wish he would have just stuck with screwing up Star Trek.

You Are What You Eat

As you probably already knew, flamingos are pink because of all the shrimp they consume. I just wondered what would happen if a flamingo ate lots of guacamole. I’m guessing it would die, but would it turn green first?

Meeso What?

I’ve heard it pronounced “mee-so” and “mess-o”. The joke really only works with one of them. Of course, some people get mad about a joke that involves cancer in the punchline, even if I’m making fun of Pete’s intelligence and not the disease.
