Will Your Remarry?

Raoul’s Two Cents: January 21, 2022

Delicious, Decadent, Dish

WARNING: This might make you hungry

If you expected to read something cool and amazing today, sorry to disappoint. I was actually hoping to write something cool and amazing but I got sidetracked by a temptation from hell.

There I was — waiting for a new set of tires to be installed on my car. I loitered in Sam’s Club to kill the time. I wasn’t planning on buying anything but temptation was staring at me on aisle number 25 — a package of raw, juicy, glistening marbleized steak. “Buy me! Buy me!” it said.

Due to health concerns, I had not bought red meat in years. Sure I’ve bought hamburgers and eaten steak sporadically but not to buy raw beef — to cook in any unhealthy way I wanted. It was so long in fact, that I wasn’t sure how many minutes I needed to broil it.

I gave in. There! I said it! I lost the battle. I was like a thief arriving at home with the loot. My daughter also salivated and decided to cook her special mashed potato, heavy on the garlic. It was a bright afternoon and we were already thinking of dinner. How decrepit!

Bless me father for I have sinned! But the smell and taste of burned dripping fat was amazing. I must have had 3 bowls of that mashed potato and a pound of delicious, decadent steak.

So when I turned on my computer to type this email, my mind was already gone. Cool and amazing never came. But guilt and thoughts of another bite did. I’m getting sleepy and a battle inside my tummy has already begun.

TGIF people! Burp! I am signing off.


Joke of the Week

Thanks to Peter Paul of S Pasadena, CA for this joke.

Video of the week

Thanks to Naomi of North Hollywood, CA for this cute video. I must have shared this before but I thought it was time to revisit.

Parting Shots

Thanks to Tom of Pasadena, CA for these photos of Chinese Walmart.
Just when we thought U.S. Walmarts had it all, China comes up with the most unusual products.

Crocodiles, anyone?
Bulk Rice
Mixed meat for the choosing.
Turtles and frogs.
Nope! Those aren’t sausages, those are bull penises.
Walmart brand liquor come in handy, affordable little bottles.
Spare ribs … but wish they said from what animal.
Assorted dried reptiles (they really love those scaly thingies) — the perfect snack for solitary confinement political prisoners.
Even more liquor. And these come in fancy boxes.
Of course you can’t have enough of those yummy frogs.
Chopsticks galore.
Ducks on a rack.
Great Value brand beef granules
Pig faces. I doubt these are kosher.
Antibacterial bikini underwear for men
Diet Water. Hmmmm …
Meat Water. Mmmm … I don’t think so.
Dill pickles with a little surprise.
100% powdered horse milk. Guaranteed to give you a kick!

    Thanks Raoul. The overloaded elevator was a depiction of what Saints do that enthuses the rest of us with their acts of Charity. Better than words that crippled girl leaving the elevator and her look back at all the people left a lump in my throat.

    Good morning Raoul.

    Thank you for your TGIF message. I liked the drawing, and all the Walmart photos.

    Seems that too much steak isn’t good for you anymore. Tom and I are eating smaller portions of meat and more vegetables these days. He continues to lose weight and we go to the gym too. We are working to be healthy into our old age.

    I will fly to Phoenix tomorrow for 1 weeks vacation. I will be able to SEE the sun. We have gray skies here in Salem.

    Interesting content. Thanks for admitting that you’re weak, too (although, come to think of it, I don’t think you ever denied it). Very appropriate (after the steak story) that you share pics of the things that are eaten in some other places. Have you eaten any of that weird stuff? What a sensation in reaching for a pickle and pulling out a frog!

    My favorite part of the entire issue was the video. I want to sing in her choir!
