    the type of waterboarding the king usually enjoys is not the kind most folks enjoy.
    Bamboo under the fingernails is the usual favorite.

    ‘Bamboo under the fingernails I’m not too thrilled with…’

    There was a spelling mistake on the Fink’s invite. It should have said “wakeboarding”. Oh, well, the Fink will probably waterboard whoever wrote up the invites when he finds out…

    I thought the old king did that.

    I think a few people are going to get waterboarded for not showing up.

    A big thank you to Al S for clarifying “SPORK” for me. Although I have seen these utensils somewhere, I didn’t know they actually had a name; i.e., SPoonfORK".
    Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

    Backpacker supply catalogs offer Titainium & stainless steel models, complete with a small cutting edge. That’s a niche market, though.

    Language will be a great means of communication when we finally figure out how to use it.

    An old poem used “runcible” for a spork. I used to just take a spoon and a knife and cheated by dehydrating my meals ahead of time and put them in plastic bags. Put the mix of diced small dried veggies (potatoes, carrots, peas, peppers, etc.) and meat in a 16 oz trail cup for 20 minutes with water to rehydrate and then boil for five minutes. About as easy a meal on the trail as any.
    Wrote the USDA food preservation line about drying commercial ham and found out it had more salt than regular jerky and so was told it would work. Used jenny-o turkey ham and cut it into little cubes and dried them.
    First time I tried the method, I got the potatoes too big. Cubes about 5/8 of an inch and they dehydrated to sharp-edged cubes with sunken centers. Needed to cut them to a much smaller size before drying them.

    like so many things, it went straight over my head.
