Overheard in the Kitchen...

Me: "What part of the Mennonite do they get the bacon from?"

Its the fatty meat under the belt skin.

Tam said...

Does Mennonite leather make belts as good as Amish leather does?

og said...

Mennonite leather is a bit thinner but the texture is better. More root beer in the diet.

I have a couple of pictures of Mennonite ancestors. They don't look capable of smiling at these jokes. I'm not sure how that would affect the bacon or the leather.

I always laugh at signs advertising Mennonite or Amish meat, cheese, etc.

Didn't know food could have religion.
Being a life long Mennonite, yes I laugh at jokes like this.

Isn't that the raw material for Speed Stick?

"Isn't that the raw material for Speed Stick?"

Nah.You're thinking of Febrezium (Fb). Mennonite is an explosive being developed on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Same part that regular bacon comes from. Fattened on salvage store breakfast cereal.

Jim, if I didn't know how well you can shoot, I would threaten you with bodily harm for that one.

Mainly for telling it before I could. :-p

I cannot let my wife see the Mennonite nympho one. She would be convinced that you and I are long-separated brothers.

Now all I have to do is work "mennonite " into our daily conversation to set it up.

Might be worth a trip to Galvez to see the show in person-.

Remember - the pun is the absolute worst form of wordplay, and also the best.

Sorry for the digression, Tam.
