Candy Cigarettes

Oh wow thanks for that link. And no surprise that a) Cigarette manufacturers worked with candy companies to make this happen, and b) They once carried NAME BRANDS on them! wow.

The "Barrattis shrimps" look like the same thing as "circus peanuts" that we have on this side of the pond.

A regular pipe why not?

Somehow, I wouldn't be able to picture you with a corncob pipe, Julie.
Mammy Yokum, in the Li'l Abner comic strip (Al Capp; 1940's), smoked
one. You might Google it, for a sample, if possible.

Then, again, you might possess not only Mammie's sense of humor, but
also, her sense of persuasion. :oD

Definately! I knew you'd appreciate the contrast.
Let's face it, though -- she had a mother's responsibilities,
which you're aware of!

Knock, knock, knock.
"All my friends?"
Knock, knock, knock.
"All my friends?"
Knock, knock, knock.
"All my friends?"

"I had to leave. They were having fun wrong."

In this 2nd version of "Waiting for Godot", there are no rules beyond the usual S@H general Cafe rules.
So, take a seat. Or whatever.
Just wait for Godot patiently.
Or impatiently.
Examine the gestalt of the existential emptiness.
Or fullness.

Have fun.

(Or hang "on in quiet desperation." I've heard "it's the English way.")


"Oh, heck no ... .
I am SOOO done with Twitter."

I think Donald was waiting on a submarine as well.

Does Godot own a fleet?
