Honey can you please hand me a few of those celery gumballs, my pecs are acting up


I was addressing a group of young people the other day and they all expressed disbelief at my description of consumable pudding sold in a metal can. You wanted to get all that delicious pudding material out of the can so you'd lick the lid etc. Hunt's ran some safety commercials about not licking the can but you licked the can anyway ... Snack Pack the Talking Horse could go shove it.

"Diced peaches!"

Decided to re-experience 17776 (highly recommended) and idly looked up one bit because that's what I do, I look up bits. This is a reference, apparently, to the first time the phrase "hang out" had been used in its current-day context. Back in 2013 I ran across a 1869 invoice with the phrase "crash out on the floor". I mean it could be a -literal- crash on the floor. Like the cake crashed on the floor. "You sleep it off, cakey."

Meanwhile, if you have read 17776 here is a video to watch (A Realistic Simulation ‒ 17776 Football {ANIMATIC}]). It will not make sense unless you have read it.
