Interesting fella. I'm relieved to have never been married to him.

The ones wrapped in maize-leafs... ugh! (Normal filter Gitanes are OK though - 'cept for their price)

the target market for maize leaf Gitanes are agriculturists over 75 years old, who make their own Gn˘le.

Speaking of which, Gn˘le shots on the house...prune flavored....

^Er. Does it taste better than it sounds?

I've got some lechuguilla. It's kinda like tequila, but made from a kind of agave with spines so thick it's called the "Shin Dagger."

you're not supposed to pronounce the "G".

think "gn˘le" as in "espa˝ol"

not "gn˘le" as in "gnome"

^Yeah, I meant the "Prunella" part, actually...

Although this reminds me of grocery shopping this morning. Always fun when there are 2 or more languages in common use. I caught sight of a frozen confection kinda like a Drumstick, labeled "Conos" and did a double-take...who else knows some slang?

Tildes are so important.

Can't, I gotta dissect an unfortunate rat. I'll just leave the preservation fluid in this jar marked "Free Moonshine" and everyone can serve themselves...

Yeah these were the very same peanuts... saw Terry fishing them and an empty chips bag out of the waste bin... but that fluid should disinfect everything

Hasta lunes!
