    The entire rotten vegetable concession is yours. However, delivery velocities must be limited to speeds which do not cause contusions, abrasions or other physical maladies.

    That's quite alright.....we don't want to hit them so hard they blackout, rather, we want them to be able to enjoy the full aromatic effect of the chosen projectiles.
    Eggs especially are quite robust after they've been aged for several days in a nice hot environment, such as those which do not hatch after being sat on for 2 weeks.
    Duck eggs are VERY good in this instance (don't ask how I know this...)
    We'll even provide goggles, as we can't have folks getting eye injuries now, can we !
    OSHA would be quite upset at us for that !

    The egg concession is still negotiable (and that is quite contingent on the profit percentage we get from the vegetable concession).
    Pity though. The potential for velocity increases with eggs; uniform in size and shape, hard shelled and quite messy. Maybe we can shoot them through a couple of screens and simply vaporize those rotten duck eggs. How's that for an aromatic solution?

    No, FAR, FAR better to have them not lose any pungency prior to impact ;) And the velocity necessary REALLY isn't much more than the fruit/veggies, as when they start to ferment, they build pressure & then they become quite easy to fracture !:clown:(again,don't ask!)
    I'm SURE we can make a good profit margin on the veggies, as we can charge farmers to dispose of spoiled product, they get to write off the cost of disposal, and we can apply for a state grant as a composting/recycling facility, also then getting the necessary waivers for the odors,:crying: as we have now become an agri-business.

    Rabbi would be proud ! :dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:

    Yes. All that you need now, is to use the word plenipotentiary in a sentence.

    If I had used a word such as that as a child,:faint: my mother would have washed my mouth out with soap !

    But that WOULD give me the power to declare war as I saw fit.....which COULD come in handy at times ;) (ref. Dutchy of Grand Fenwick)

    My mom did wash my mouth out with soap one time. I am a foul mouthed S.O.B. so I don't think it worked.

    Same here.....I was just more careful where I used my vocabulary in the future. Discretion and all that...

    So, you're discrete? What about the behaving like Belushi thing?

    Only around my Mother. It was a survival thing.
    Almost a home movie: Check out "Only the Lonely" with the late John Candy, his mother portrayed by Maureen O'Hara. If she wasn't modeled after my mom for that movie, I have no clue WHERE they got the idea ! :dunno:

    Got it. "Only the Lonely" is now in my DVD.com queue. I'll bump it (and John Wick 3) to the top of the queue when Mrs. M. goes to visit the in laws.

    Warning....be prepared to laugh yourself silly. I think it was one of Candy's best efforts.

    Yikes!! :alex: You're online!

    I do regard Candy as one of the best. He nailed so many great lines in his career. I remember when Letterman had Natashka Kinski on the show and she had some really over the top avante garde hoax of a hair do. So, Dave says, "Nice hair." And, she just freaks out. So, after the break, she is gone and Candy comes out and sits down and he looks like somebody stuck a bunch of mouse in his hair and styled it like an ice cream cone. So, Dave says, "Nice hair." And, Candy says, "Oh thank you." "I like it." "blah blah blah." "I wanted something different." "blah blah blah." Freakin' classic stuff.

    :eagle: Tomorrow will be my investigative day. :elephant:
    Tuesday, I'll up the ante on our hike. Not that kind of Auntie. We're going back to do a hike that we use to knock off in three hours. I expect it will take considerably longer now. :fred:

    Time of hike does not matter......
    surviving & RETURNING from the hike is the prime directive ! :fred:
