The Yukon Jack Stare.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:10 pm

In the wee hours of the morning at Jekyll, we got to talking about Yukon Jack liquor. I mentioned that I have a fair amount of experience drinking the stuff and, more importantly, watching others “Do Yukon J.” I should note that Yukon J is one of those boozes with a mellow, pleasant taste that beguiles the drinker into believing that it’s tame. However, hidden beneath its palate-pleasing properties, lurks the firepower of a Howitzer.

The 100 proof sledgehammer creeps up on the unwary and, more than any other liquor I know, Yukon Jack has the propensity to produce “The Stare.”

I won’t even bother to describe The Stare, because Rob, who was one of the Jekyll Night Owls, has described it so well.

A word to the wise: If you give Yukon Jack a try and you find yourself saying, “Yo, this stuff is smoooooth,” it is probably already too late. Don’t even think about driving, and you might also consider wearing shades so that no one can see you doing The Stare.

Turds Abound. (Updated)

I was tagged by Evil White Guy to participate in this exercise. The deal is that one must write a few stanzas of doggerel based upon the following format.

Turd in a punchbowl,
Have no fear,
Turd in a punchbowl,
Blah, blah, blah…….., etc.

Here goes:

Turd in a punchbowl,
Long and brown,
Turd in a punchbowl,
Spins round and round

Turd in a punchbowl,
From your ass,
Turd in a punchbowl,
Not in the grass

Turd in a punchbowl,
What a bore,
Turd in a punchbowl,
Looks like Al Gore

Turd in a punchbowl,
How about that,
Turd in a punchbowl,
Not in your hat.

Here is the work of Dash and Velociman, both of whom were also hit with the turd splatter.

Now, I am supposed to tag three other bloggers. However, I prefer not to toss this turd in anyone else’s punchbowl who may have better things to do. However, I hereby cordially invite anyone reading this and who feels even a little bit poetic to have at it;

Update: Thanks to V-Man for directing me to ‘Neck’s masterpiece. It’s turd-riffic!!

Update No. 2: Dave from A Different Lemming voluntarily jumps into the punchbowl.
