Oh good lord, someone left this in my fridge. Is this really food? Can I eat this? I don't think so. Let's see here.
Polydextrose is evil crap. Cellulose Gel, Cellulose Gum, Guar Gum, Tara Gum, Carob Bean Gum and Xanthan Gum are all nothing but fillers, which means you're probably eating a LOT more gum than you think. Xanthan Gum is particularly nasty, being cultured from a bacterial species that causes many different kinds of plant diseases - from citrus canker to leaf rot, as seen in the photo shown above. In the 1950s Allene Jeanes discovered that a combination of Xanthomonas campestris fermented in a corn sugar culture produced a colorless slimy substance. Yum-o!!
Corn Maltodextrin? Oh great. Is there anything on Earth these psychopaths will not put GMO corn in?
Top it all off with the toxic artificial sweetener Splenda, and the toxic artificial sweetener Acesulfame-K. Nossir, this futuristic soylent plastic glop isn't edible, ever, under any circumstances by my standards - and hell, I even eat hot dogs sometimes.
I love the Little Pizza House! Someone needs to reopen it.
3319 W Market Street in Louisville. Taken from moving car; I need to go back and get better shots of it.
Is it by fate or by design that the missing letters now cause it to spell out "Little iz a Hoe"?

Damn it! Just a few days ago I took pictures of this burned-out house and still held out hope that the historic home could still be rebuilt.
But what worries me now is that this cat, who has been lurking around the remains of the house lately, might have been inside when it all went splooch. I keep circling around the neighborhood, hoping I'll see him. I haven't so far.
No "crack pipe" jokes, please. My beloved pipe has developed a crack along one of its wooden seams which is expanding rapidly, day by day. I expect it will probably just fall apart in my hand soon. Then again, it's a relatively cheapo ($30) pipe and considering that I'm new to the pipe game (I only started experimental pipery back in January), it's a wonder I haven't wrecked it sooner.
Is it just me, or is the whole world on strike lately? The other day, while driving around Louisville, I saw no less than seven of these "shame on you" signs accompanied by lackluster picketers. Where do all these different unions get these identical "shame on you" signs with an interchangeable patch on top bearing the name of the rabble-rouser of the moment?
