I dunno, I've seen some awfully scrawny children. Bet they'd only have has much meat on them as a cornish game hen. Anyone else ever read "A Modest Proposal"? My 9th grade English/literature teacher thought it was hilarious. Of course, she also kept the ashes of her cat in her purse...

I'd never read it. Until today, at your suggestion.

WOW, kind of makes me want to crawl out of my skin. And there were bizarre funny things in it too.

I found this lurking in the back of the pantry. It is a can of hot Hormel Chili with beans.
When the mill I worked closed in 2010, I found it in my locker.
The date on the can is 1998 (cell phone don't take such a great picture).
It has been around so long, I almost feel like it is a member of the family.
