Maybe-Maybe Not



Boys and beer, eh?

48 year old, David Jonathan Winkelman, and his stepson, after hearing KORB radio station DJ in Davenport Iowa, jokingly offer a 6 figure payout to anyone who showed up with the station logo,“93 Rock, the Quad City Rocker", tattooed on their forehead, up and did it.

When they showed up at the station with their fresh tats, they were met by Foghorn Leghorn who told them,"It's a joke son, a joke". David, stepson and presumably David's wife were not amused.

Lawyers were retained, and the case dismissed.

To rub salt in Mr. Winkelman's wounds, KORB has since changed formats. No longer are they the heavy metal kings of Iowa. They are now an outpost of easy listening.

Thanks for the laugh, Toad. I needed that.

I was having such a nice day, sat down for a minute to see if Mrs. Toad had made the Princess' Hickory Nut Pie recipe when Lo, I am greeted with this offshoot of the very species grown here in Nassau County, Florida. I stand in line next to this gentleman at Walmart, we get our oil changed together, he's been inside my house to repair things gone wrong. But on my screen, while logged onto The Toad Island of Civility? I faint.

Flo, I actually gathered a pile of hickory nuts to see what could be done with them. After they sat in a bowl overnight I was somewhat put off by the quantity of worms that emerged.

It appears that there are hickory nuts, and then there are nuts. The quality of eating is dependent upon the breed of tree.

Maybe I'd best spray the trees next season.

What's best about that photo...it's his mugshot!! So not only stupid...but a criminal too!

Toad are the hickory nuts hard on the outside? Shells on them? I wonder if soaking them overnight would rid them of any little critters?

Toad said...

Sp, I'll try that tonight and see what happens. Deep down I think I'd prefer to skip the worms all together.

This clown is another denizen of the shallow end of the gene pool...he simply looks like an idiot who would do such a thing.
