No, but they would be fun to have anyhow.
Guess again.

Uh, nope. Here's a hint: If you adhere strictly to the Word of Wisdom, you'll probably need to make a special trip to the grocery store.

That's hilarious! I actually should have known that because I was at the grocery store at some insane hour, and I saw a girl I knew who was absolutely embarrassed to be buying beer, but it was for her garden she said (or something). She frantically explained to me that she wasn't drinking it. :lol:

Yeah, but I bet it would scare garden slugs away. (You don't have any slugs hanging around your computer, do you? See? It works!)

In all seriousness, for all you gardeners: Take a shallow pan or dish (like an old cake pan), pour an inch or so of beer into it, and set it near where the slugs are chomping away at stuff you don't want them bothering. The beer attracts them, they slime their way up the side of the pan, fall in, drown, and die the happy, drunken deaths they deserve.

I've never thought of this before, but I imagine if you were so inclined, you could fish 'em out of the pan, take 'em in the kitchen, and saute up a batch of kick@$$ Marinated Escargot en Beurre. But I dunno.

InO, my love, you are 100% correct, and now it is your turn to post a Trivia question! (I'm so proud.)

Ummmmm....InOregon? Are you going to post a Trivia Question?

Because somebody besides me has gotta play. I already know the answers to the questions I ask. :(

What periodical published a condensed Bible with 55% less Old Testament and 25% less New Testament, in 1982?

From the word "condensed", I'm going to guess Reader's Digest?

I like the idea of a Diet Bible, though. "Now with 55% less Old Testament and 25% less New Testament! Same great requirements, now with less obligation!"

Okay...on to the new trivia question:

What fictional book was banned in China after censors decided: "Animals should not use human language"?

First one that comes to mind is "Charlotte's Web," but that's just a guess.

While they've probably applied that "reasoning" to other books, that wasn't the one in particular that caused the initial "ruling".

Keep guessing!

Here's a hint: You would've thought the dictatorial beheadings in the book would've been enough for them to keep it.

The Holy Bible?

[Edit: a few minutes after I distractedly posted this guess-- because I was thinking about the serpent in the Garden of Eden, and the beheading of John the Baptist--I was standing in the shower and just soaping away, when to my horror, the actual wording of Steve's question popped into my head: "fictional book"... I promise, I don't think The Bible is fiction, and I didn't mean to imply that I do, nor did I mean any disrespect or sacrilege whatsoever. Honest; I was just thinking he had asked "which book?" Oh boy. I am sooo gonna get struck by lightning if I don't start being a little more careful what I post.]

Close enough! Technically, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", but you are nonetheless correct!

Your turn, rob.

Okay, how about some Seinfeld trivia?

What design was on Jerry's check in the episode where he bounced a check?
