Funny you should mention…
a few years back, I did some fake menus as a gag (pardon the pun) gift, that was the “Roadkill Cafe” and included:
‘Possum Patties …$14.95
Succulent Possum meat is pressed into delectable patties, with flour, onions and spices! Served with a haunting sauce of acorns in sparkling water. Choice of two of the following: Mashed potatoes, baked potato, fried potato, potato salad, home fried potato, potato au gratin, twice baked potato, German potato salad, potato chips, stuffed potato, steak fries, curly fries, sweet potatoes, scalloped potatoes, shoe string fries, Amish Potato salad, potato bread, hash brown potatoes, whipped potatoes, potato Diane, potato pancakes or potato soup. Delicious!
among other things.
I vote for Narcotics Anonymous spokesman Steve Sigman, when referring to Stephen Phillips, a “self-proclaimed NA success story and motivational speaker.” Claims he’s been clean for six years, but slipped out of a speaking engagement to take delivery of a package containing 53 pounds of marijuana. At his home was discovered 48 more pounds. Said Sigman of Phillips:
“It sounds like this individual was not 100 percent in recovery.”
on a sadder note, apparently I misinterpreted the prior link about the Naval officer -in the article it said the police were ‘negotiating’ with him, I assumed, incorrectly they were successful. according to this he shot himself. The three year old now is in state custoday, having lost her mother, father and grandmother on the same day.
