Ronald MacDonald working at Wendy's ... That is really tickling me. :o)

DCS said...

I loved that one, too, Goddess. Imagine the snickers at the police station, in jail, and possibly the court room. :-)

Not sure if you've ever had Moose meat but, aside from sounding unappetizing, it's quite good.

It is in fact a staple in a lot of Northern communities.

Inmates processing moose meat? I guess i'd eat it. Hell what could be worse than my cooking.

Deb S. said...

Ruben, remember that women love a man who cooks. So rustle some pots, my brotha. LOL

In the meantme, I've already told Trucker Bob to expect all of us over to his place for a dinner of moose meat cuisine and a rockin' party! Ruben, you can bring some music. Don't forget Kanye West. LOL Bob's folks will supply classic country. This party will be the talk of Canada!

Moose meat roadkill burgers compliments of the convicts. That sounds more than a little dubious.

Malik, we have a special place for you at the table. Moose served five different ways. LOL
