Remember last month when I hosted the New Bloggers Showcase Carnival? One of the featured blogs was Add a Little Ginger To Your Day. Well I was visiting the blogs I featured and Rich has a new look for his blog. And he had a link to a section of The Sneeze - Half zine. Half blog. Half not good with fractions. The section: Steve, Don't Eat It! chronicles Steve foray into dietary weirdness. The fact that Steve writes very well and is extremely funny is icing. A sample from his post on prison wine: (Note: prisons don't serve wine. Steve made the contraband wines using a recipe he found in a book. You'll just have to read the whole thing.)
It was time for the white. Wine tasters refer to a wine's aroma as its "nose." This wine's nose was a rectum. If this wasn't wine, I had somehow stumbled upon the recipe for Prison Stink Bombs. Forget about drinking it, I was afraid of getting it on me.
Through some miracle, it actually tasted nothing like it smelled. In fact, there was very little flavor other than sour, watery alcohol. It's hard to believe this started out as a bag of fruit snacks and grape juice. Yet somehow these ingredients went from sweet and child-like to harsh and alcoholic quicker than Lindsay Lohan.
Now that I think about it, prison inmates frequently turn to religion. I'm not very religious, but maybe I should be. Sure, Jesus made wine from water, but I did it with a dirty sock and fruit snacks! You tell me what the bigger miracle is.
I will issue a language warning. Steve’s colorful writing is rife with f-bombs.
