    Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Kirkland Nutra Nuggets dog chowfor my loyal pet, Brista, and was in the checkout line when woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

    What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I’m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

    I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry.

    The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

    Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter’s a$$ and a car hit us both.

    I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Costco won’t let me shop there anymore.

    Until next time.

    They only needed 2,000 wolves to clean up the nuggets.

    I was pulling a fully loaded artic for Vauxhall Motors, out of Bedford (obviously not Bedford, Massachusetts)… They’d loaded the car engines near the roof of my trailer… so much so that I was now totally top-heavy… First roundabout, 44 ton of car parts on the road and pavement… This two weeks after I’d just passed my HGV test… My confidence out the window…

    Not me this time but, but I witnessed a fellow lorry-driver, unloading at McDo’s, removed the bar holding back the wheeled trolleys, on a slope, full load of milk gracefully rolled off the back, smashing onto the concrete…

    And that is why the chicken nuggets crossed the road.

    I’m guessing they figured out how much a wolf could eat by observations made at the site of the chicken nugget spill. They must have been lucky to have both a lot of wolves in the area, and someone stupi… err brave enough to go in and measure how much each wolf was eating.

    Knowing that a ravenous 25 pound dog can easily devour a pound of meat, it doesn’t surprise me that a 140 pound wolf could eat 20 pounds of meat in one sitting. Those mofos are huge!

    so how many wolves would it take to eat 40,000 pounds of chicken nuggets?

    40,000 lbs. of chicken nuggets dumped on the road? That’s substance abuse! It reminded me of another true story:

    Those chicken nuggets were dry without any sauce

    …and as fate would happen, a tanker truck carrying hundreds of gallons of BBQ sauce slammed into the nugget truck a few seconds later.

    So, they had to call in 2,000 wolves to clean up that highway in Pennsylvania?

    Man, where I live they had LIVE chickens crash on the highway. Although… the truck DID catch fire so I guess there were only 1000 nuggets instead of 40,000 pounds….

    So, you’re saying, it would take 2,000 wolves to clean up that tragic Pennsylvania highway? How about 1,000 wolves in two sittings? And that brings up the question of how long wolves go between “sittings.” That determines how long the highway would be closed with only 1,000 wolves on the job.

    Oh wait. It was closed for “several hours.” Would you believe 2,000 slow wolves?

    One wolf can eat 20 pounds of meat in a single sitting?

    How do you get it to sit at the table?

    Rather a big coincidence how close this comes to the Harry Chapin song 40,000 lb of bananas. Even happened in the same state.
