Ummm I may be able to top that.... about ten years ago a skunk had awaken me from a dead sleep several nights in a row from releasing it's spray near the house. Finally I decided to take him out. I put the dead skunk in a black contractors bag, rolled it up, and forgot about it for about a week in 90 degree summer hear. The smell made me aware I'd forgotten about pepe' la pew,, it had rotted thru the bag and had become a black goo of the worst smell a human could endure. The clean up was pure hellish.
I think just maybe you should get the Nasty Award! lol A few weeks ago I had let my dog run around a bit and was trying to get her put up and she didn't want to go. While I was fighting with her she found a big pile of rotten dead snake the other dog must have drug up from the road (about the size of a dinner plate). Of course she grabbed it and tried her best to swollow it but couldn't then she dropped it and layed down and wallowed in it, scooting her dang head all around all over it. By the time I got control of her she had slobbered and rubbed all over me! I could puke now thinking about that rotten smell! Stupid nasty dog! LOL I had to go in and change clothes and tried to scrub the smell off of me!

I have been told power plants use Mercury to clean out their stacks. They always blow their stacks out at night. Maybe, them blowing out the stacks is putting Mercury into the air. This would also explain our high rate of cancer in our area.

Do any of y'all own a scooter - one of those little no tax, no license, no insurance, 49cc, 100plus mpg deals? I'm thinking about getting one just to putt around on and to have in case gas prices go crazy again, which I fully expect. When they were at there highest it was costing me well over $5 just to go into town and back! I need a Prius! lol

There is no telling what is going on, especially true if the government is involved.

I have been thinking about getting a mule and feeding it green onions and let it make it's own gas. Nothing like following behind an old mule that is plowing and hit a rock or stump on the old rock farm and when it strains and you are right there behind the exhaust .... Una could not even match that.
wow

So I drop off the wife to have dinner and then see the late showing of the final Twilight movie with her girlies last night. The ladies bought their tickets about two months ago and got to watch the previous installment and the final one back to back. Talk about a mad house. The parking lot was overflowing onto other businesses and shoulder of the road. Pure Chaos. I pick her up at midnight and it took fifteen minutes to get out of the parking lot, lol. Anyway, I had to stop for three racoons on the road about a mile from home, they were in absolutly no hurry. I tapped the horn and one looked up at the headlights like he was saying "chill out dude", lol. I was waiting for one to wash the windshield and hold his paw out!

I have not eaten anything except deer meat lately that my relative gave me. I have never and will never eat a nasty dead donkey eating Opossum. LOL But in the old days, my granny would cook a raccoon or an Opossum somehow and serve it with baked sweet potatoes. I passed. I think the Opossum is fairly greasy and I don't know about a raccoon. I passed on that too mainly because they looked too much like the Lone Ranger. LOL

A rabbit is more tender and just floured and fried like a chicken and served with mashed potatoes and biscuits and gravy. In Lexington for a while on Boardwalk Ave. was a "take off' restaurant called "Kentucky Fried Rabbit" lol. It did "take off" after a few months and closed. LOL My guess is that those were domestic rabbits.

Squirrels were a little more tough and was just boiled and added in a cream sauce. I never ate much of the tree rats either unless I was really hungry and we were out of Corn Flakes. lol

About the only way that I like deer meat is to do a quick boil of a chunk and then take it out and wash it again in a cold water and vinegar mix (not much vinegar), Slice it really thin, then serve it open faced like a beef manhattan on bread with mashed potatoes covered with McCormick's Brown Gravy mix. At that point, I can't tell any difference between that and an open faced roast beef Manhattan. Some folks call them "roast beef Combinations". My relative likes to butterfly and charcoal grill a chunk of deer tenderloin and fill the butterfly part with Bleu Cheese or Roquert cheese crumbles just before it is almost finished grilling. I tried it and it was okay but not my favorite. I have had deer cooked like a roast with new potatoes, onions, and carrots. I am told that they soaked in overnight in a milk and water mix to remove some of the wild taste.
