What is that tastes like gravy
Boys I bet you don't know
Can you guess what tastes like gravy
It's fine if you really want to know
I tasted last night, the night before
If I keep this appetite
I'm going to taste a little more
So what is it tastes like gravy
Boys I bet you don't know

Now what is that tastes like gravy
I bet you don't know
Can you guess what tastes like gravy
It's tight if you really want to know

Now the gal that let me taste it
They put her in jail
But she didn't need nothing to go her bail
She had stuff tastes like gravy
And I bet you don't know

Can you guess what tastes like gravy
Boys I bet you don't know
Can you guess what tastes like gravy
It's tight if you really want to know

Now if you don't know, I tell you who do
Just see Tampa Red, and his best gal too
They'll tell you what tastes like gravy
If you really don't know

Now I say, guess what tastes like gravy
Boys I bet you don't know
Guess what tastes like gravy
It's tight if you really want to know
If you don't know, I tell you who do
Just see Tampa Red, and his best gal too
And they'll tell you what tastes like gravy
If you really don't know
I mean, if you you really want to know

The Joe Frank had me laughing out loud, which was great.

Seems to me the Giuliani /Romney choice comes down to whether you want the administration to crash and burn, possibly causing major problems, but doing so badly there may be a big turn over in 2 years, or a slightly more sane administration,, which may not set off as many fires, but also may not be a likely to be rejected in 2 years. Whatta choice..

@doctorjazz one of the problems is that a crash and burn might result in a change that makes things worse
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/25/16 11:23am melinda:

I just saw a fox in the ravine behind my house, but it didn't look like a normal fox. Grey-ish brown without the bushy tail. But it was sort of prancing in a way that was neither cat nor dog, so I looked closer and it had a fox face.

@melinda I've never seen a fox around here - there was one in my old Baltimore neighborhood that is heavily built up - deer there everywhere
  Fri. 11/25/16 11:29am Dean:

My daughter refers to a nearby park as Turkey Park, because she and her babysitter would see a local rafter of turkeys loitering on the route from home to the park. Yesterday she and her mom walked to the park. The turkeys were there. You'd think of all days they'd keep on the down low.

bud the spud.

It's bud the spud from the bright red mud
Rollin' down the Highway smiling-
The Spuds are big on the back of Bud's rig
And they're from Prince Edward Island they're from Prince Edward Island

Now from Charlottetown or from Summerside
They load him down for the big long ride
He jumps in the cab and he's off with the pride Sebagos
He's gotta catch the boat to make Tormentine & he heads up that old New Brunswick line
Through Montreal he comes just a flyin with another big load a potatoes.

It's bud the spud from the bright red mud
Rollin' down the Highway smiling-
The Spuds are big on the back of Bud's rig
And they're from Prince Edward Island they're from Prince Edward Island

Now the Ontario Provincial Police don't think mucha Bud...
Yeah the cops a been lookin for the son of a gun
That's been rippin the tar off the 401-
They know the name on the truck shines up in the sun-"Green Gables."
But he hits Toronto and it's 7 O'Clock when he backs er up agin the terminal dock.
And the boys gather round just to hear him talk
About another big load a potatoes!

It's bud the spud from the bright red mud
Rollin' down the Highway smiling-
The Spuds are big on the back of Bud's rig
And they're from Prince Edward Island they're from Prince Edward Island

Now I know a lot of people from east to west
That like the spuds from the island best.
Cause they'll stand up to the hardest test-right on the table.
So when ya see that big truck rollin by- wave yer hand or kinda wink yer eye,
Cause that's Bud the Spud from old pei, with another big load a potatoes!

It's bud the spud from the bright red mud
Rollin' down the Highway smiling-
Slow-because he's got another big load,
Of the best dog gone potatoes that's ever been growed
And they're from Prince Edward Island They're from Prince Edward Island
