Out of the Blue

We received a delivery yesterday of a potted plant that was packaged in that neat corn starch packing material that you can dissolve in warm water. With more than a little amusement, we watched Hudson the wonder dog play with a piece of this stuff for a while before eating it. We figured that this is probably not meant for consumption, but how much harm could a little piece do? (Cue ominous music.) The harm is that this gave her a taste for this stuff, and when I came downstairs today, I found no fewer than six discrete piles of vomit on the kitchen floor. Seems the little monster had dug back into the box, which had been closed, but carelessly left on the floor, and chowed down on enough of this stuff to make her sick. She seems fine now, even though her normal food tends to be a lot closer to the Atkins diet.

I'm glad you slept well.

Btw, I honestly didn't know about the Bloodhound Gang song.

See, when you put it like that it is funny, especially considering the fact that I have several friends who get into that kind of 'trouble' on a regular basis. Problem is I haven't listened to the Bloodhound Gang in a long time, which is why I missed the song reference. Ah well, I slept like a baby anyways.

Did the story involve rolling her in flour and looking for the wet spot?

Your so far across the line that the line is a dot to you.

Bucky, it's a SONG......Bloodhound Gang, "You're pretty when I'm drunk"

If you have a buddy that often gets into this kind of "trouble" when you guys are out drinkin, its THAT much funnier.

Maybe Adams county has two guys riding around in a '63 International Harvester pickup which would make 2,666 jugs of urine and 67 bags of human crap a much bigger big deal.

thats a bit of an accomplishment right there....taking a dump while driving a semi...

Easy... Truckers are in to much of a hurry to actually stop to go whiz... so they do it in a jug and huck it out the window.

That's mostly it right there, many truckers are paid by the mile and are only allowed on the road for so many hours a day. Plus, the county that's complaining the most, Adams, is along the heavily used trucking rout between Spokane and the Tri-Cities and is 99% farmlands and sagebrush. I don't know for sure but I'd bet there isn't one rest stop in the whole county - but I could be wrong, I haven't had to go to Spokane in over 25 years.

Still, I'm sure that there's a stretch of highway exactly like it in every state - so why is it such a problem here? Perhaps it is a problem in every other state but the cleanup workers don't complain as much. Maybe Adams county has two guys riding around in a '63 International Harvester pickup which would make 2,666 jugs of urine and 67 bags of human crap a much bigger big deal.

Btw, good Ootb message board today. We've got human, dog, and horse crap, 2,666 jugs of urine, dog vomit, and to top it all off, dogs eating crap and vomiting. Did I miss anything? Doesn't anyone have a good infected pus or bile story to share today?

My poor little puppy (God rest her soul)....in her long life she (a 16 lb Boston Terrier) ate:

+[Whole stick of butter off the kitchen table]
+[1 lb bag of marshmallows]
+[Bag of Jolly Ranchers (wrappers and all)]
+[Bottle of nail polish]
+[My Halloween stash of 13 Recess Peanut Butter Cups]

The little monster would also routinely finagle 2 dinners per night by claiming she had not been fed to multiple family members. She would also refuse to go to sleep (and therefore, not let US to go sleep) unless she had her nightly helping of orange juice.

I'm sure there are other ghastly things she ate.....those just popped to mind first..

We miss you pup....

I'm somewhat confounded by the article pointedly ignoring the WHY of this situation. Why would someone piss in a jug to begin with then discard it on public roads? ...and why just in that area? Taking a leak on the side of a public highway isn't going to hurt the environment (it'll actually work as fertilizer for nearby vegegtation) but pissing in a plastic container and THEN discarding it IS environmentally unfriendly (if thats the motivation for this behavior). Makes no sense.

Must be a Left Coast thing
