    Clean up from yesterday.

    @ Tigerchik32

    We are good :-) I have no idea what you might be misinterpreting, but whatever it is, it was not directed at you.

    I found the spider! Here’s the link again.

    I’m presuming two things: 1. You’re looking for a good basic “starter’s” cookbook, and 2, that you live in the States or Canada. I’ll post an answer for you, here, on Wednesday. (I have to go to Chapters anyway, I might want to buy the latest Lee Child Jack Reacher novel and give it to the library when finished rather than stay on the waiting list at the library.)

    @ Bruno Zeigerts

    I’m guessing that my definition of simple, and yours don’t quite match up. I mean no insult here. I’m going to give the most basic rice cooking method that I use, when all I want is plain rice.

    1.)Rice expands at a ratio of 1:3. That is one cup of uncooked rice will make 3 cups of cooked rice.

    2.)As long as you have more water in your cooking pot than the rice is going to absorb, you’re good to go. It doesn’t matter if you have 8 cups of water and 1/3 cup of uncooked rice; the rice will turn out just fine. (I usually use double the minimum amount.)
    3.)Put your desired amount of rice in a measuring cup and pour, directly into the measuring cup, enough cooking oil (corn, canola, olive, peanut, etc.) to coat the rice. This prevents it from sticking together while cooking. Again, within reason, the amount of oil doesn’t matter as long as it coats the rice.
    4.)Get the water to a full boil and add the rice slowly enough so the water is at least always at a simmer. After all the rice is added, let the water return to a full boil, then turn the heat down to simmering level. Set your timer for 20 minutes, and walk away. No need to cover the pot.
    5.)When 20 minutes have passed, strain the rice through a sieve, salt and pepper to taste, enjoy.
    6.)If you want something just a little fancier, buy a package of mixed frozen vegetables (unless you like them, make sure there are no lima beans in the bag), cook them according to the instructions on the bag, and add to the rice. The amount? To your taste.

    If my guess was correct, I hope this is closer to what you asked me for. Remember, wild rice is not really rice so the 1:3 ratio does not apply.

    OK, I usually grab the general meaning/intent, but this one has me by the baffles.

    Lets just say it’s not number one.

    As a foreigner whose first language is not English, does anyone care to explain why this cartoon is funny?

    The word “service” can also mean “funeral.”

    So, the joke is a forest service instead of a funeral service. Good thing this joke has a comments section for us slow-witted ones.

    I agree. I had no idea what the punch line was getting at until I read the comments. Not one of their better toons, I’d say….

    It probably doesn’t help that many of you didn’t understand the ‘Thumper’ reference. That said, I have to admit that it is only funny in sick kind of way.

    Alexikakos: U Comics is for comics…not politics, sports or cooking. Seriously? If you just need your name in print, get your own site or get on Craigslist Rants and Raves. Be prepared for a rollicking good time with whatever thread of topics the day presents.
    I rarely look on the comments but sometimes I have to when the entire list of comics don’t load, to see each one.
    I have seen some drivel in my time but seriously?
    Please don’t tell others to shut up when you have little concept of the words yourself.
