How to make a nice pen...

If you're a cheap bloke (like me) or you have nice pens that are out of ink (like me) or don't quite write well any more (like me), try this:

(I have no idea what a Mount Blanc pen is.)

Faceball makes its big splash in the MSM!

It's not quite Nature's Most Perfect Food, but...

So, here I was, minding my own business when I get the following in an email from the eatery linked in the title:

Going out on a date (to eat) tonight with my wife, I asked her where she wanted to eat. She replied "Famous Dave's, Bambino's, Chilis, " etc. Since Dave's was the first out of her mouth and I know that she really likes his food, that's what was decided upon. Then I recalled the coupon. A quick trip to this computer printed and retrieved it.

Upon sitting down, we were told that it was good for an appetizer or dessert. Cool!

The rib tips and fries basket is as good as a meal for two and we'd be out of there after a generous dessert (the pecan pie is excellent). Then a waitress looked at it and said "Boy are you lucky! That's for the All American Feast!" and walked away. Hmmm... Checked it out with the people at the entrance and it was confirmed. :^)!! Then, while I'm out on the porch trying to get people to help us eat it, Cherry tells the waiter that he may have been mistaken. He checks with the manager and tells us again that it's only for app./dess. But he goes back, checks again and finds that we are really going to get a # of fries, a full slab of ribs, a whole chicken, a 1/2 # of brisket &/or pulled pork, 4 corn muffins, and 4 corn on the cob!!! $56.99 for free!!

1st friends were unavailable, but our pastor and his wife weren't.

We had a wonderful time! So, sign up for the birthday club. If you get prize "B02," you'll also be well blessed and fed!

(I had a soda, so we got out for $2.09 (plus tip) :^)

Here's Apple's interpretation of it:

But, to be fair, here's Dell's:

Really, folks, I am not making this up. :^)
