Pony and Horse shoes:

Texas toast, covered in french fries, meat of your choice (my favorite is the corned beef, all I can sya is Holy Cow!), and smothered in white cheddar cheese sauce. I NEVER miss a chance to get one when I am in Springfield. Heart Attack on a plate? Yep. Yummy as could be? Oh yeah!
Now that one sounds good!

What is WRONG with you people?! Haven't you ever thought of eating NORMAL food?

LOL -- okay, I guess I opened myself up for that one... However, I'd like to point out that:

1) I've lived in Oklahoma (off and on) for 28 years, and I've never seen a tornado. I've never been the least bit affected by a tornado. Tornados are interesting beasts -- I've been in the same town with one SEVERAL times, and it will wipe out a house or two (or maybe an entire subdivision), but leave the rest of the city alone. This is very much unlike the widespread destruction of an earthquake, flood, or hurricane.

2) We don't eat roadkill in Oklahoma. You're thinking of Texas (where I've lived off and on for 9 years... I actually ate in a restaurant in TEXAS, named the "Roadkill Cafe".

I could not agree more. Throw all the sourkraut in the trash can with the cole slaw -- they must be cousins...

I've lived in SW Missouri for 38 years and only seen one tornado. It was the one that went through Carl Junction, MO in May of 05 killing two people. I was able to see it from my front porch and took pictures of it. Now before you all start saying "What the H** were you doing taking pictures of a tornado?", It was several miles away and going across not towards me. Here's a few pictures from beginning to end.

Second: I nor anyone I know has ever eaten road kill

Third: I do actually like sauerkraut on a good grilled braut. I just don't like cole slaw.

Stick that tongue out a little more.....cuz they would either be 1) gone cuz I ate them, or 2) very icky after a 4 1/2 hour drive.

Though, I am sure we could find somewhere to go fly together.

Default Roadkill?

Although I haven't seen anyone actually eating roadkill.....

I have been driving down the local highway (one lane each way) and seen a deer that was freshly killed/dead on the side of the road.....
Then an hour later coming back the other way, I noticed a local "Hillbilly" dragging it to the back of his F-150 pickup...Yum!! Pre-tenderized and slightly aged venison....

This happens rather frequently in Illinois during the fall; when a motorist hits and kills a deer, they driver has "right of first refusal" to the deer if they want it. Otherwise, any other person may claim the deer. We have a couple troopers I work with that always want to know when a fresh roadkill deer is available.

I like it cuz I reap the spoils, especially if they make deer-and-cheddar sausage. Mmmmmmmmm

A lot of people do. We don't. On new home construction it's pretty common for the master walk in closet to be reinforced poured concrete floor, walls and ceiling with a steel door. It's then finished out to look like a regular closet but is actually a safe room. They are also installing them underground in the garage floor with steps going down, lights, bunks and outlets for TV or radio. Gotta love spring time around here.

Actually, I sleep better during the rainy season... :o

For what it's worth, my home was built as a "1999 model home", and does not have a built-in safe room.

Grasshopper -- have you ever read a poem called something like "Roppassegar"? You might like it.
