  • Used to work in Mid-Michigan.  Idk if I would ever want to move to Saginaw, Flint, or even Detroit.

    We used to have a joke at work.  "Let's take a road trip down through Saginaw, then Flint, and then Detroit. We'll call it Survivor!"

  • Opening another CoW, it's not always a good idea to do what the government asks...

    Rough towns.  All three of them.  I live outside Flint and I go out of my way to stay away from the north end of Flint and certainly NEVER after dark.  Crazy stuff goes on there and people end up shot and/or dead in other ways.  It's one of the most violent cities in America according to the FBI.

    Sorry you're upset, I'm not gonna bite. If you find utopia tell me, I'll bring some tri tip, unless it grows on trees there, if that's the case I'll bring some beer, unless that's what the rivers are filled with. Never mind, just call me when you find it and we' ll go from there.
    Remided me of a song my Dad always sang....
    One evening as the sun went down
    And the jungle fires were burning,
    Down the track came a hobo hiking,
    And he said, "Boys, I'm not turning
    I'm headed for a land that's far away
    Besides the crystal fountains
    So come with me, we'll go and see
    The Big Rock Candy Mountains

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
    There's a land that's fair and bright,
    Where the handouts grow on bushes
    And you sleep out every night.
    Where the boxcars all are empty
    And the sun shines every day
    And the birds and the bees
    And the cigarette trees
    The lemonade springs
    Where the bluebird sings
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
    All the cops have wooden legs
    And the bulldogs all have rubber teeth
    And the hens lay soft-boiled eggs
    The farmers' trees are full of fruit
    And the barns are full of hay 
    Oh I'm bound to go
    Where there ain't no snow
    Where the rain don't fall
    The winds don't blow
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
    You never change your socks
    And the little streams of alcohol
    Come trickling down the rocks
    The brakemen have to tip their hats 
    And the railway bulls are blind
    There's a lake of stew
    And of whiskey too
    You can paddle all around it
    In a big canoe
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains,
    The jails are made of tin.
    And you can walk right out again,
    As soon as you are in.
    There ain't no short-handled shovels,
    No axes, saws nor picks,
    I'm bound to stay
    Where you sleep all day,
    Where they hung the jerk
    That invented work
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.
    ....
    I'll see you all this coming fall
    In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

    Ill stay and pick up a brisket on Mondays. Thanks for the info my meat selection will just improve some days of the week.  I love the fact that santa monica will go forward with this.  If they think that will cut down on anything they should consider all of the extra lump I will consume.  Im in.

    When I posted the original message - the point was meat. Meat is discussed here isn't it? This didn't seem political to me but a call for self preservation. Tyranny is very quiet followed by the crying of the clueless.

    That's all I have to say - thanks for some of the witty comments.

    I've never been called a troll and never intended to cross a line. My apologies.

    The Ute Tribe called.  They also want all the immigrants to leave Utah.  I think they're talking about the 1850s.

    Finally found the picture.  "What's a Ute?"

  • Utes are a native Indian tribe in Northeastern Utah. I graduated...yep...actually graduated from Uintah High, and our mascot was a Ute Indian. Here is some more info.

     It's a joke, son.

    image

    The movie is "My Cousin Vinnie".  Joe Pesci is Vinnie, a New York blue collar guy with a classic accent who graduated from night school with a law degree.  He's defending his cousin Ralph Macchio from a murder charge in the deep south. 

    While questioning a witness Vinnie says "So you say the two utes were walking..."

    The judge, played by Fred Gwynn fka Herman Munster, interupts: "The two what?"

    Vinnie (confused): "What?"

    Judge: "Did you say two utes?"

    Vinnie: "Yeah'"

    Judge: "What's a ute?"

    Vinnie (comprehending): "Oh, sorry.  The two YOUTHS."

    Vinnie was from NY, and the judge was from Alabama.  There was an accent gap.
