Poppy Seeds Can Make You Fail A Drug Test

I watched Food Detectives the other day. I don't know why, but I really like that show.

From their website:
Science meets food as Ted Allen and his band of culinary sleuths conduct experiments to find the truth behind all of your burning food conundrums.

One of the experiments they conducted was how many poppy seed bagels could a person eat before they would fail a drug test. The answer was 5. But how is that possible - well, the poppy seed is taken from the same plant that opium comes from (or something like that).

Hope You Got The Goldmine, Jerry Reed - RIP

Jerry Reed died Monday morning. I don't own many cd's, but I do own one of his.

(I have no idea why the video is not showing up on IE - it does in Firefox)

911 Call

Don't think this is real, but it's still funny nonetheless.

Thanks, K.C.

Moral Of The Story

The teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it.

The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories. There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved.

But then the teacher realized, much to her dismay, that only Ernie was left. 'Ernie, do you have a story to share?'

'Yes ma'am. My daddy told a story about my Aunt Karen. She was a pilot in Desert Storm, and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, and all she had was a flask of whiskey, a pistol, and a survival knife.

She drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break, and then her parachute landed her right in the middle of 20 Iraqi troops.

She shot 15 of them with the pistol, until she ran out of bullets, killed four more with t he knife, till the blade broke, and then she killed the last Iraqi with her bare hands.

'Good Heavens,' said the horrified teacher.

'What kind of moral did your daddy tell you from this horrible story?'

"Don't f*** with Aunt Karen when she's been drinking."

Thanks, Mom
