      So I was having trouble with my hearing aids last week. I went to the audiologists. She asked me to describe the symptoms.
      That's a strange request I thought to myself.
      So I told her, "Homer is a fat guy and Marge is his wife with blue hair.

          Holy crap! Without a doubt, bar none, by far, the best Covid-19 parody I've seen (and I've seen quite a few by now). The lyrics are hilarious (...headbanging), the vocal is spot on, and to top it off, the guy doing the vocals is a PhD at the Neonatal Perinatal Research Institute at Duke. Wowsers!

          Knowing many vets and having seen many Walmartians, this might not be a joke but actually true:

          WAR OF 1812 AT WALMART
          Yesterday, I wore my Korea Veteran cap to Wal-Mart. There was nothing in
          particular that I needed at the world's largest retailer; but, since I
          retired, trips to "Wally World" to look at the Walmartians is always
          good for some comic relief. Besides, I always feel pretty normal after
          seeing some of the people that frequent the establishment. But, I
          digress, . . . enough of my psychological fixations.
          While standing in line to check out, the guy in front of me, probably in
          his early thirties, asked, "Are you a Viet Nam Vet?"
          "No," I replied.
          "Then why are you wearing that cap?"
          "Because I couldn't find the one from the War of 1812 . . ." I thought
          it was a snappy retort.
          "The War of 1812, huh?" the Walmartian queried, "When was that?"
          God forgive me, but I couldn't pass up such an opportunity. "1946," I
          answered as straight-faced as possible.
          He pondered my response for a moment and responded, "Why do they call it
          the War of 1812 if it was in 1946?"
          "It was a Black Op. No one is supposed to know about it." This was
          beginning to be way fun!
          "Dude! Really?" He exclaimed. "How did you get to do something that COOOOL?"
          I glanced furtively around me for effect, leaned toward the guy and in a
          low voice said, "I'm not sure. I was the only Caucasian on the mission."
          "Dude," he was really getting excited about what he was hearing, "that
          is seriously awesome! But, didn't you kind of stand out?"
          "Not really. The other guys were wearing white camouflage."
          The moron nodded knowingly.
          "Listen man," I said in a very serious tone, "You can't tell anyone
          about this. It's still 'top secret' and I shouldn't have said anything."
          "Oh yeah?" he gave me the 'don't threaten me look.' "Like, what's gonna
          happen if I do?"
          With a really hard look I said, "You have a family don't you? We
          wouldn't want anything to happen to them, would we?"
          The guy gulped, left his basket where it was and fled through the door.
          The lady behind me started laughing so hard I thought she was about to
          have a heart attack. I just grinned at her.
          After checking out and going to the parking lot,
          I saw dimwit leaning in a car window talking to a young woman. Upon
          catching sight of me he started pointing excitedly in my direction.
          Giving him another 'deadly' serious look, I made the 'I see you'
          gesture. He turned kind of pale, jumped in the car and sped out of the
          parking lot.
          And these people VOTE!
          What a great time! Tomorrow I'm going back wearing my Homeland Security cap.
          Then the next day I will go to the driver's license bureau wearing my
          Border Patrol hat, and see how long it takes to empty the place. Whoever
          said retirement is boring? You just need to wear the right kind of cap!
          See you guys at Walmart!!

          Years ago, I used to eat at a restaurant that did both Thai and Chinese dishes regularly with coworkers. The rest of us loved the Angry Chicken, but one guy in our group had a tender palate and ordered Chicken with vegetables. After taking his order the waitress (chef’s wife) repeated back his order: Chicken Wedgies. After she left our whole table burst into laughter realizing know how they made the chicken so angry.

          Needless to say, we had a hard time ordering with straight faces on future visits, my friend with the tender palate struggled so hard, he ordered a ‘Papsi’ to drink a couple visits later. I really miss that place.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.
