Cookbook?

This is Dave. We work together. Hi Dave! Hey, what's that book you have?

What's that you say, Dave? It's a book about corpses? And about death investigation? Okay, Dave, I won't ask why you are reading it. I will just assume that it is because of an interest in science, and not because you are disposing of a body...

What, Dave? You say you got the book at a secondhand store? How thrifty of you! And you say there is writing in the book? In the back? Whatever could it be?

Why it appears to be a recipe! A meatloaf recipe! Why, imagine that, a meatloaf recipe in the back of a book about corpses. How, um, appetizing.

Um, okay, Dave. I, um, gotta go. What? No, that's okay, I don't want t come over for dinner. I'm, um, a vegetarian. And fasting. And have the stomach flu...

Bye, Dave!

WHAT the WHAT? This is awesome. Just plain awesome. First: I want that book. I'm a little bit sad that it is from a thrift store because maybe it's out of print. BUT, the recipe at the end? IS wonderful.

P.S.: Your "tell them about conference!" is my favorite comment on the Utah post. You want to know what I think? I think the LDS Church can control the weather. It rains each conference weekend. They want us to stay indoors and watch the sessions. Brilliant.

LMAO! I'm a vegetarian too, and for some reason that made it more hilarious...are you the Libby who donated to my event?

Jules said...

That's hysterical.

Seriously though, I want to read that book.

Kelly said...

That is too much! If I even liked meatloaf, I don't think I could eat it again...

Amanda said...

Fantastic.

The writing in the back of that book looks just like my dad's. Oddly and creepily just like it.

That's kind of cool. Admittedly also a little creepy...but cool all the same.

I heard it's a great book. ;)

Aunt Becky said...

That book is amazing. Seriously, it's amazing.

Great book. But mine didn't come with a recipe for meatloaf in it. I'm feeling jipped.

Ily said...

Great post! I want to meet Dave...and try his meatloaf! lmao

Jason said...

Looking closely at the recipe, I don't think it's for meatloaf.

Of course, I wasn't sure if that was supposed to read groun (sic) or maybe a derivative spelling of grown.

I think what you have there is Hannibal Lecter's recipe for either census-taker chili or maybe BBQ Sloppy Joes, heavy emphasis on the Joe.

Hi.

Riot Kitty left a link on my blog to this post.

Somehow, why doesn't that surprise me that theres a receipe for meatloaf in a book about cadavers.

My Saturday has started with a good laugh over this post. Riot Kitty sent me and I'm glad she did. Now the bad part -- I fixed meatloaf last night! LOL

Chief said...

I always knew you creative types were strange!
