Pie, yes (says the guy who never met a pie he didn't like). Punch on the other hand needs to be provided by attendants (151 rum suggested.)
Minced Meat Pie. Do you like that?
As long as its penis yes.

Say there!!!

Are you suggesting ...

OMG
Well perhaps I shouldn't say this on the internet where every cannibal bro has access (and probably Jody Foster) but some like liver (personally I hate beans and prefer beer) but as long as this is a secure channel on the dark web we're cool right?

Not having dinner at your place.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

The above was a joke. I hardly ever eat people much less their dogs. No really.

There are sinister stories about Inuit "survival cannibalism". Let's hope the Polar Vortex won't persist too long… :shock:

Is ed still moving? :o

(Locally it's quite balmy, the little snow we had has thawed long ago, even up to the tops of nearby mountains.)

We're still digging out. I had to shovel like 2 feet of snow drift on my walk and driveway. I'm in solidarity with my brothers in Puerto Rico, now.

Went skiing up in Wausau WI Friday and Saturday. Never got above 5 either day (it was -11 when I left the hotel yesterday), kept a lot of people off the slopes so the skiing was awesome. No lines for the lift, no groups of clueless snowboarders sitting in the middle of the runs for no apparent reason. Never got cold because you can always dress for cold, if you get cold it's because you're a moron who's more worried about fashion than being comfortable.

Sounds awesome. Bet the cold also kept the snow from partially melting and icing over. Glad you had a good time. 8)
Such potential!
