Gut Rumbles

strange trip

I had to go to the store today to replenish my pineapple-pineapple juice supply. I'm not kidding, folks--- since I started consuming fresh pineapple for breakfeast every day and drinking pineapple juice, my ulcer doesn't hurt I and am regular as a clock. I should write a book called "Acidman's Pineapple Diet For People Who Shit Their Pants."

Hell--- it could be a best-seller, just noticing some blogs I've read.

But I didn't go to my regular grocery store. I went to a Mom & Pop place not far from my house that had what I wanted. I like those places because they have old shit on their shelves that even THEY can't recognize. I saw one of those things today.

I picked it up from its lonely place on the shelf. It had no companions and appeared to be very old, judging from the dust on the plastic wrapper. I examined it and couldn't figure out what it was. It was a round rubber disk with some metal prongs coming out of it on the side. That thing either fit a strange commode for plumbing repairs or should be used as a Ninja throwing weapon. That was the best guess I could make.

I asked the lady behind the counter. "Ma'am, do you know what this is?"

"No, honey, I don't. That thing's been here from day #1 and I don't think ANYBODY knows what it is. You wanna buy it?"

I started to. It was $8.00 and I probably could have $8.00 worth of fun just leaving it on the coffee table and asking my friends what THEY thought it was. But I didn't. I put it back on the shelf and bought my pineapples.

But I'll tell you what's strange. I'm STILL thinking about that thing.


Has to be worth more than 8$ on eBay. You;d think..........

Go back and take a picture of it. Then post it for the world to see. Maybe one of your readers can identify it.

Go back and buy it, we will have a gut rumbles auction over the weekend. Put a picture of it on your site, maybe fun.

If you have dogs, and they like to eat each others turds off the ground, you feed them pineapple. It makes the poop unpalatable somehow, so other dogs won't eat what had pineapple in passing.

Does this mean you're tall dog because other dogs can't stand your shit?

Why not take a picture of it and post it?
It would be fun to Identify it or at least try.

That picture is coming up. Maybe somebody out there can tell me what it is.

Ideas don't stay in some minds very long because they don't like
solitary confinement.
