KFC Biscuits and Always Save Root Beer

I was watching a youngster eat biscuits and drink root beer and it occurred to me that when you're

a six year old American kid,  given the choice between the finest Champagne that money can buy along with

 the world's best Caviar or KFC Biscuits and Always Save Root Beer, the later will win every time.

You know, we adults could learn a lot from kids if we'd just take the time to listen to what they have to say.

So that's exactly what I did and this is what I heard:

"Grmmp mnn doogn ondaoddr dings!"

Then I thought: 

"Maybe we should just take the time to listen to what they have to say
 when their mouths aren't full of biscuits."

Caviar. Tastes like crap when you first try it.

But the elites just love it.

Acquired taste, wouldn't you know?

It's a;ways amazed my hoe people will slosh down garbage hashed together by some "famous" french chef... just to be in style.

Or whatever.

And yes...

I can no longer spell.

Or proof read.

when i was a kid one of highlights of the year was when dad made homemade hires root beer and as a matter of fact there are 2 dozen cans of mug root beer sitting on our clothes dryer at this very moment.

they won't last long when the hot weather returns.

Bob - I think standards have gone down a little from back in the day.
Perfection is no longer noticed, expected or even appreciated.

(Which works to my advantage.)

You have the thing that so many others lack, the ability to think critically. That's what matters!

Yeah, I use to pretend that hotdogs were a delicacy in front of my kids.

"If y'all are real good today, maybe tonight, we can have hotdogs, pork & beans and tater chips for dinner!"

Billy -
I've made a lot of beer, but never root beer, hmm, that might be fun, I might give it a shot.

There are some rugrats around here that would devour those root beers in record time if they saw them.

They are liken to the locust of biblical times.

For the kids hotdogs were ALWAYS a treat!

I think it'as when you get older and discover what the dogs are actually made from is when they lose their allure.

Like my Dad always said:
"Made from the sweepings off the cutting room floor."

Lunch meats also.
