from The Gallery of Regrettable Food

This is one of my favorites in the collection.

snip:

t wasn’t until much later, when they caught the First Lutheran Church standing over the body of another housewife over in Cass County, that they realized that the spire had been stalking and murdering women for years.


The rest of it is at the link, with a picture.

The site makes me laugh every time I go there.

5. He wrote that he does periodically,

but he has lots of other projects going on too. I didn't know that until a few minutes ago.

3. ...and when they turned around, they just saw a church.....

Later, they’d think: wait a minute. There’s no church in our side yard. And by then the church would be gone.


That happened to me, once. Only it was a Dairy Queen. It was the great "Hard Chocolate Covering" incident of "85"

Scores of people were minding their own business, mowing the lawn, clipping hedges, and all of the sudden, they would be covered in a thin but hard layer of yummy chocolate. And always with the little loop thingy on top. And the last thing they would see is a harmless looking Soft Serve Ice Cream franchise.

I still bear the scars today.

You're Lileks, aren't you?

If you're not, you should be.

7. "The sound of the footsteps grew closer...

And it was clear his cover had been blown and the accusers were gaining on him.

“Oh LOOK!” He said. “Less sadness over there”. And off he went.
