Tube of salad

You know what else comes in a tube? My hemorrhoid ointment and my denture cream. And they taste awful too. I fear a lunch like this is insufficient to fuel the engine of thought-leadership.

Figure 1. Forget about this terrible lunch. Notice the nice carved wooden figure of the oriental guy riding the water buffalo behind the tube of crap. I keep that on my desk so my co-workers will know that I am frivolous and light-hearted.

You know how you wait your entire life for the Vikings to have a good team, and then they finally get to the NFC championship game and fumble 9 times and lose to the Saints? This entry is kind of like that.

F Banger on :

Skeeter- your life must be in disarray right now. The Vikings sucking it up when it really counted and RickY producing a blog like this. May I suggest getting your MM license so you can cope through this trying time. (And through the Brett Farve retirement/returning process- been there, done that).

skeeter on :

Interesting thought, Mr. Banger. Do you know of any MM blogs that I could turn to? That would solve one of my problems...

Bruce from LI on :

I'd like to open the debate as to whether or not this is a tube or a tub:

tube [tjuːb]
1. a long hollow and typically cylindrical object, used for the passage of fluids or as a container
2. a collapsible cylindrical container of soft metal or plastic closed with a cap, used to hold viscous liquids or pastes

tub (tb)
a. An open, flat-bottomed vessel, usually round and typically wider than it is deep, used for washing, packing, or storing.
b. The amount that such a vessel can hold.
c. The contents of such a vessel.

Ricky on :

Answering that question could be an interesting intellectual excercise, Bruce from LI, but let's not take our eye off the ball: The important point, here, is that I've tasted my own hemmorhoid ointment.

grossman on :

Have you read the directions on the tube of hemmorhoid ointment? If you are tasting it I think you are taking the long route to relief.

Anonymous on :

Hemmoroid is definitely in a tube.

Ricky on :

How many times have I heard myself say those words.

F Banger on :

I have to disagree on this one. I swear to baby jesus that I saw a tub of it next to the big screens and king crab legs at one of those wholesale warehouse places. My bet is that RickY mistook it for mayo.

Steffen on :


I just stumbled upon your website on google. Some of your pictures look very delicious, some not ;-) Perhaps you might want to get some new ideas for having lunch outside here: It's all about sharing experiences and getting new ideas for having lunch! ;-)
