With all the hamburger I have bought in my lifetime, I'd rather have bought a new car.

I'm so glad I read this. Amazing facts. And now I know why my writing sucks the big wazoo. My head points northeast.

Jaime- I wish I could say the same..I don't meet the requirements of "full-grown" though..I still act like a immature child.

me-me-king- Well I just bought 1/2 a cow last week...and it was a little gross picking it up at the butchers..made me want a car instead.

Mary- Hmm...interesting theory..mine points west..so I guess we both suck!

christina said...

haha. interesting.

The Fit Dad said...

The one about the cows isn't true. I grew up on a ranch and to get cattle off a truck they had to go down small stairs...so nah, nah, nah.

If it's a rule of thumb, wouldn't it be that ALL boys will be at least the height of their mothers?
Don't mind me, my head didn't sleep last night, let alone facing north.

Thighs are stronger than concrete? Now we know that using Jimmy Hoffa as building material was a wise structural move in addition to an early example of recycling.

There you go again Hussy... ;P

Gorilla Bananas said...

Who says you can't lead a cow downstairs? I could do it with the right encouragement at the rear.

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO POST AGAIN JAMIE! It has been far too long, in my book. By that I mean, two months is a ridiculously long time to not blog :(

nipsy said...

Hmmm...I seem to get hiccups more than my husband. Does that mean I'm the man? Perhaps I just need to lay off the hot sauce!
