Had "pastilla" for lunch today, which I'm told is a moroccan delicacy. Sooogood. It's made of pigeon and slivered almonds and cinnamon baked in a flaky pastry crust. I was just thinking of what a great cottage-industry this could turn into at Rice since we have all of those free pigeons running around that nobody likes anyway. The ultimate in renewable food resources.
MORE PIGEONSjcruelty: i have an idea for a new food
aj: me too!
jcruelty: it's called the "morocco taco"
aj: oh, mine's better -- pigeon donuts
jcruelty: well mine has pigeon meat in it, duh
aj: but mine is sweet and tasty
aj: and i had one yesterday
jcruelty: shut up
jcruelty: you did not
jcruelty: with pigeon in it??
aj: quite tasty, once you get past the whole disgusting thing
jcruelty: oh like the email.
aj: i'm going to market "pigeon donuts" at Rice
aj: think of how cheaply I can acquire pigeons!
jcruelty: call them 'morroccan donuts'
aj: and it can be added to my line of products. . . meat-nog, goat-meal, and cow-chip-cookies
jcruelty: high in fiber
jcruelty: "nog" is a funny word
jcruelty: it just sounds funny
jcruelty: i could sit here saying it all day
jcruelty: maybe i will
jcruelty: while rocking back and forth and sucking my thumb
aj: i think you should get nog.com if it's not taken
aj: maybe start a line of nog-nog jokes
jcruelty: nog nog
aj: who's there?
aj: meat who?
jcruelty: nice to meat you
jcruelty: or something
aj: your nog-nog jokes are doomed to failure
jcruelty: i can't work under pressure
