As we often do, we cruised by ESPN.com to see what was happening in the world of sports and entertainment. In the headline box we scanned this (minus the yellow):
“How did a musket from the 1700 and 1800′s get arrested?” we wondered.
We then realized that the article was on Devone Bess of the Cleveland Browns football team.
We think we need to slow down from reading all of the Revolutionary War books that we have been going through lately.

Our graphics guy here at Raised on Hoecakes sent us this gem from a website called “Clients From Hell,” which is a site devoted to relaying quick stories on graphic clients that can best be described as “difficult.”
One graphic artist was apparently asked by a client:
“Why is it that the people on CSI can enhance an image and cut out the crap in seconds WHILE SOLVING A MURDER, and you need almost an HOUR to do it!?”

We know that this driver will never live this down and take tons of ribbing from his coworkers, but it is still funny. On the other hand, you have to wonder if the turkey is saying “I LOST FRIENDS THIS SEASON!”

Actually, we prefer the smell of a Christmas tree, but to each their own.

Be prepared to say “dang!” as a cat scores a takedown on a woman kicking snow on it.
We like at the end how the cat seems to be saying “who’s your daddy now, woman?”
Even her little dog doesn’t know what just happened.
That should teach her to treat animals better.

Now that the great turkey gorge apocalypse is past us, we thought we’d let you in on some food related secrets that may make you a bit…..
…..how shall we say…….
First, we hope you all know that depending on how you look at it, the gas that is produced by yeast that makes breads soft and beer ferment is actually from yeast belches. (Or farts depending on the side of the yeast microbe you happen to be watching.)
But the really fun and disgusting thing that will freak many people out is that teeth cavities are caused by germ poop.
So the next time you are at a gathering and selfishly want the last bit of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, biscuits or pie, you can adopt the strategy of telling the person that wants the same thing that as you speak, germs are pooping in their mouth causing cavities.
As they push back from the table and run, enjoy that last morsel.
(Just as a side note, does anyone know where this past year went? It seems to have flown by and we are now in December already. time to look for snow!)

Somehow this seems appropriate for this week.
