For the “big game” last weekend, my church had a SOUPer Bowl party, where we had a soup / chili cookoff. (FYI, this was after service, on time-delay, so we could skip the commercials and halftime show.) I made a pot of chili-cheese chili, which didn’t win, so it must’ve been a conspiracy. But whatever…
Before the event, I was looking online at some different chili recipes, and I was reading the user comments on a few that I thought sounded good, and I came across this:
I’ve had his Texas Chili many years ago. My spouse forced me to buy an air filter shortly after.
Eat Chili responsibly.
If that isn’t a great endorsement for chili, I don’t know what is!
Not only is that funny, but it’s good advice. You do need to eat chili responsibly. In fact, towards the end of our party, I saw one of our regular readers sitting at a big round table all by himself. I had to remind him to be responsible with his chili and the associated after-effects. While he certainly has the right and freedom to conduct his flatulence* however he pleases, there may be the consequences of sitting alone. It reminds me of this proverb:
Man who farts in church sits in pew.
Okay, so that doesn’t really directly apply, but it’s funny (or punny), and some folks appreciate such humor. (I’m doing it for you, my readers.)
* The phrase “conduct his flatulence” applies in more ways than one. This is the same person who has what we call “Active Gas On Command”. He is, in fact, able to conduct his flatulence better than anyone I know.
