    Jeb, please try showing up with some Mike's Hard Lemonade and see how the coven responds. I'll bet you and LouLou have the doggie park all to yourselves. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Mike's Hard Lemonade? Forget the quiches! What about all those poor alcoholic lemons? Imagine them being squashed and fermented alive!!

    (besides, quiche is gross!! Icky!)

    As someone who doesn't have a dog, I have to say that some dog owners are pretty bizarre! I don't understand why they won't let little "Muffy or Fluffy" play with certain other dogs - I see it all the time at the "off-leash" beach near my house. Some of them get totally worked up about it too!Can you imagine some of these people with kids!??

    Perhaps some of you dog owners can enlighten me to the philosophy behind "Canine Segregation". [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Gyyahhhh! Now the lemons! This board is such a downer...everyday, more bad news. Please don't tell me about raisins, carrot juice, beet pulp, bran mash, portabello mushrooms (the veal of the vegetable world), etc.

    I'm going to start eating 350 Flinstones Vitamins a day...and that's all.

    OK, but I guess we won't go into the little known plight of the endangered vitamins, which are hunted down by rare vitamin-sniffing goats?

    And the machine that presses them into Barney Rubbles? *gasp* (I've heard the Wilma one is more humane)

    And how will you take those Jeb? When you eat your Flinstones will you eat the red ones last? Will you suck them very slowly, or crunch them very fast?

    All things considerd, I think taking out the Flinstone Family fast would be much more humane than asking them to suffer slowly, don't you think? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I feel bad for animal crackers and chocolate easterbunnys, so I eat 'em butt first, head last.
    And you cannibals, eating The Flintstones. What's next? The Lucky Charms Elf?

    Magnolia - if you feel bad about your next Chocolate Eater Bunny, please FEEL FREE to give it to me! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I have NO qualms about eating them! I eat ears first, than work my way from the feet up, until the head. I do feel bad when I have to eat one of the ones that has candy eyes. Its kind of like they're staring at you as you go to bite there nose off!

    As a confirmed carnivore, I like to bite the heads off my marshmallow chickens first! http://www.chronofhorse.com/ubb/eek.gif

    And what's with the sympathy for alcoholic lemons? Isn't that the more humane approach, like putting lobsters in a pot of wine before you cook them? What's next, Lem-Anon? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img]

    MY LORD - the poor CUCUMBERS - plucked from the vine and made to sit in a crowded jar of vinegar, waiting to be eaten...
    That's it. I'm going back to eating meat. I hate thinking of the poor veggies and fruit suffering just to make my butt bigger!

    Does it make it better that we give the fruits and vegetables plenty of poo to eat while they're growing?

    I must confess, I not only eat my Marshmallow Peeps head first, but I leave them out exposed to the elements for days at a time before then, so they get hard and chewy. I'm so ashamed.

    you too? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] so, with the humidity in Houston, this takes like 30 minutes?

    The proper way to eat an easter bunny is to remove the eyes, so they can't identify you. Then you eat the ears so that they can't you comming. Then you eat their feet so they can't run away. http://www.chronofhorse.com/ubb/eek.gif [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    As far as marshmellow chicks are concerned.....

    But of course it does! That means we're using recycling, or manure management, or whatever the politically correct phrase du jour is.

    Peeps are an actual foodstuff? I always thought they were for entertainment value only...

    OK, ClemsonRider, now we know what you're doing instead of studying, eh? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Those were TOOOOOOOO much!!!!!

    I wonder how one starts a "Dog Park". Does one just find the place in a said neighborhood (or group of neighborhoods) found to be most "frequented" by canines, or does one ask one's neighbors, or one's town/county/city?? I wonder if the private school's ball fields behind me would care if I set up a neighborhood Dog Park on their property? I could make sure there were plenty of pooperscoopers and containers for disposal. hehe [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Would this said Dog Park be open to the public or by invitation only? Would the canines and the owners need to be interviewed before their applications were accepted? Would one charge dues, and if so, how much? (Sounds like a great research project for some aspiring marketing student!!)

    Well Duffy this all depends on what kind of prestige you want your dog park to carry. We could offer a club section and then possible some luxury suites and then of course we must offer a locker room with the utmost ammenities (after all who wants their little doggies going home all sweaty and unshowered, and we all know that a good post-workout stretch is essential!!)

    If we choose to offer the highest quality of dog-park you can assure that we may charge membership fees and in that case accept only the most cultured dogs.

    We can invite the initial gathering and then work on a referral (with interview of course) from the initial invitees!!

    Ooh I'm getting all worked up thinking about it!! (and we would have to decide of course where our procedes would go . . . to the Save the Baby Quiches campaign or the Save the Peeps campaign!!)
