    It must be her reckless, devil-may-care attitude. Perhaps she also has the patented Frogmore Shrimp Cleaner up her sleeve.

    Yep, must of been the workers in sweat houses packed in like canned sardines. Deveiners and tail removers hired to work for pennies on the dollars. To buy their product only gave way too promote them in satisfied consumers non-poop purchases.

    …she certainly doesn’t have to devein my jumbo shrimp…

    …this is one of those 50’s ads where if she only smoked Luck Strike she would had bought the correct shrimp…

    …I’m more concerned about the chair…

    …you do know it’s an antique…

    …she probably opens her potato chip bags from the bottom, too…

    …such a bad girl…

    …she’s one step away from going to the submarine races with Fonzie…

    …all because she likes the taste of dirty shrimp…

    …buy Acme fresh or frozen Deveined Shrimp…

    …or this could happen to you…

    Mostly, it was that she was in a great hurry at the moment, and the sale price was listed MUCH larger than the information that the shrimp were not de-veined.

    Her moods were like a weather vane. While she wasn’t vain about hiding the varicose veins on her legs, her vanity wouldn’t allow her to admit that her attempts to devein her shrimp were all in vain.

    Does this mean she had to instruct her guests to strain the sandy gunk through their teeth before swallowing?

    Pass the vino!

    EW! ☺️

    “It doesn’t. You are probably looking for the flaw in a reincarnation theory. But that is really not what it seems, either. Reincarnation only requires that when one life ends, another begins. If you are limiting yourself to the rules of physical existence, that means a steadily increasing mass of souls, created from nothing, as new lives are born. Obviously, that is flawed. But no. That’s not where this goes. This goes to a universe that exists in all completeness, where time is only relevant for persons, things and events within the universe, and not for the universe itself, for which all of time is a single thing. You can be shunted to any entity throughout time and space to the absolute limits of the universe. If you think of it as a circuit on a chip, with infinite layers, you will be close to how it works. Your component expires, meaning only that you have completed your journey through it, and you go to another. It does not necessarily follow directly in a temporal sense. You might become a blade of grass on a Jurassic hillside, and then a mollusk adapted to a very hot sea on a dying Earth billions of years from now. But the connections are not fixed, either. They change with every iteration. Your iteration will transfer to a place that is different from that to which every other iteration of your life will transfer. It is truly multi-dimensional, and complex beyond mortal comprehension.”

    I hope that’s a bench and not a chair. Otherwise she’s on the right tail of the height curve.

    Jumbo shrimp are awfully good, in my unbiased opinion, even though they have a seriously funny name. I just act naturally. It’s an open secret, after all, not really true lies. No need for a civil war or passive aggressiveness. Tis but a minor crisis, language being what it is. They are clearly misunderstood. Good grief, this is lame. I can hear the deafening silence now.

    If I eat shrimp, it’s only after close inspection and doing what cleaning hasn’t yet been done but is necessary!

    This is especially true, I find, in the case of shrimp cocktail….
