And somehow he’s not getting indigestion.
This one is a bit too far for the ol’boys to defend, Earl.
I would never eat something I found on the top of my fridge. It’s dusty up there.
Too bad Stan Lee’s gone. Earl could have developed super powers.
Hard as a rock and crunchy!
at NMU we put a veal cutlet sandwich on shelf for a semester and no change to look of sandwich, 1975 go TKE Halverson Hall
and yet they’re continuing the conversation instead of making sure that Earl isn’t developing food poisoning…
Earl didn’t notice the awful taste? Hmmmmm
Oh boy! Better get a stomach pump ready!
I had this experience once. While staying in a private home we were offered blueberry muffins for breakfast. The taste was a little “off” and then I discovered the blueberries were mold. Fortunately there were no after effects.
How bleu cheese was discovered, yum!
On the other hand, minor infections may have just bit the dust.
How long was that cookie on top of the fridge, and how did Opal fail to notice flies and ants surrounding it?
Are you guys in any way related to the Drabbles?!?
My ex & I used to refer to anything that had grown mold as having “clawed its way up the food chain & become a mammal.” But fuzzy & blue? Must be a Muppet. Would that be Cookie Monster or Grover?
That type of mold generally won’t hurt you. I grew up poor and ate tons of moldy bread.
Just a side note, but it’s very hard to see the top of the fridge when said fridge is taller than you are. I would have said that cookie would have been layered in dust and dried to the texture of cement.
I prefer the beautiful emerald green variety that I found in my elderly dad’s bread drawer.
Pack your bags,Earl.Enjoy your trip ;)
Not yet !
This makes me wonder again about who in their right mind first thought of pinecillin ?? " Hey Guys ! I know lets let this stuff rot and mold then eat some of it and see what happens !! " Who was the ancient Egyptian that said "Lets put some of this moldy bread on this wound " ??
As a kid I was told mold was just raw penicillin…and we played with mercury and lawn jarts…and…
Of course, we all know how the cookie got there in the first place. Earl, I’m looking at you.
Doesn’t that woman ever do any cleaning?
Does she not clean the top of the fridge or other areas of the house that Earl finds stuff in and Earl you should know better too. YUCK to the two of you.
If she cooked enough to keep Earl fed he wouldn’t have to scrounge around for moldy cookies or any other hairy food to stay alive. She’s after the insurance money I tell ya!
May I have a bite? Just for medicinal reasons, you understand.
Just like my husband… he’ll eat anything.
I accidentally left a package of bologna out all day after I made my lunch sandwich. Yeech! Being of the geeky persuasion, I then put out one piece of bologna, one slice of ham, one slice of chicken, one slice of cheddar cheese and a cracker with some peanut butter on top of the fridge (stays warm up there). I cannot recall exact durations, but the order in which they turned blue and fuzzy was:
bologna: Almost immediately (I no longer buy or eat it)
cheese: Pretty quick
chicken: Also pretty quick but after the cheese
ham: Turned shiny right away, but didn’t grow fuzz for quite awhile
peanut butter on cracker: Turned to stone without ever growing fuzz.
