FRIDAY FUNNIES

I begin this week's travel down the humor road with some facts about Sriracha Sauce, the new condiment sweeping American palates.

Widely considered to be of Thai origin, it is in fact "an American product that reinterprets a traditionally Thai sauce and was created by an ethnically Chinese man born and raised in Vietnam."

The originator, one David Tran "was urged to make his sauce less spicy in (its) early days. Change it to a tomato base, people told him, so that the sauce would reach a wider audience. “Hot sauce must be hot. If you don’t like it hot, use less,” Tran said. “We don’t make mayonnaise here.”

You can read the entire story here if you're so inclined.

But now . . . let's get on with the cartoonish reason for me even being here, hot as I may be. (See yesterday's post)




Oops, how did that one slip in here.





Okay, boys and girls, that's it for this week.

Have a very pleasant weekend and, for you Americans, a happy and safe Fourth of July celebrating your exit from the United Kingdom. (heh-heh)

Thanks, as always, to all of my contributors and theft victims who make this weekly excursion into madness possible.

And remember . . . always keep laughing.

Here, kitty-kitty.

(oh dear)

I was already laughing, but I really cackled at that last one.

Excellent selection this week.

As for Sriracha, we've been in love with it for years. First time I had it was at Cafe Patachou 49th and Penn. in Indianapolis. There was a controversy in a California town about the fumes from the plant where it is made.
It is powerful stuff!

Sriracha just isn't hot enough for me to taste.

I read about Tom's comment last eyar. Apparently the factory stunk up the neighborhood, and when it became a problem, it looked like it might not get made anymore.

I can think of a couple better replacements for it if anything like that happens again.

I think the Japanese are on to something with that de-cluttering technique. Too funny! :)
