Gut Rumbles

February 10, 2006


I love popcorn. I use the microwave stuff a lot, but I'll occasionally return to my roots and make some in a pot on the stove, the old-fashioned way. I think stovetop-popped actually tastes better, but the microwave version is less trouble for a lazy bastard (like ME) because it doesn't require any clean-up afterward, unless you pour it out of the bag and into a bowl.

I like to eat popcorn out of a bowl--- not with my fingers, but with my face. I lick the popcorn out of the bowl. That's right, just like a got-dam dog. Did you know that popcorn will stick to your tongue if you try to eat it that way? Well, it will.

I don't know why I started thinking about eating popcorn with my tongue. Maybe this had something to do with it.


My grandfather (who would be over a 100 years old if he were alive today) was always SO COLD that he was the only one in the family who could sit by the fireplace and use an old fashioned popcorn popper (this old contraption on a long handle) and POP CORN in the fireplace......and it was soooo good....

I enjoy popcorn also...microwaved, but not eaten with my tongue. I went to college with a girl that used to eat it like cereal, milk and all. To each his own...

I love popcorn, too. Used to have one of those long handled popcorn poppers as a kid. Hold it over the fire type of thing.

But I'm curious. What is a popcorn fart? Or is it a popcorned fart? As in, "He ain't no bigger than a popcorned fart." Love the phrase, must confess I don't get it. Is popcorn the adjective, describing the fart? Or is fart the adjective, illuminating what it means to be popcorned?

I leave this to you, Rob. I'm certain you can shed some light, bro.

I would say that eating popcorn with your tongue would indicate a strong oral tendency on your part.
I've been know to eat popcorn that way myself too. But next time I'll be thinking of LIL TONI when I do.

I thought that was a bucket of fart embryos.

Egg on MY face...

Kettle corn may be the best but when I was a kid, we begged for Jiffy Pop. Something about watching the big bubble grow on the top of the pan made it seem more magical so we imagined it tasted better I guess.

Fuck a popcorn, when I eat some corn, it then takes me a week to get that shit out of my teeth. I am eating candy now, a sugar high, Cat

What's your view on the Jiffy pop stuff that you shake in the tinfoil container over the stove? That used to be a real treat for us when we were kids - we used to go camping in the US and we asked for that every summer.
Now, it's all about the microwave crap - just easier...

I quit using microwave popcorn. Heck, I just got rid of my microwave. I prefer to use an air popper or a pot. It just tastes better that way.
