I had to spend half an hour in the bathroom at a Walmart rinsing my eye out with milk - I had something with jerk spices on it for lunch, and although it wasn't that hot to eat, it sure did burn when I rubbed my eye!  I got a lot of "What on earth are you doing?" type questions in that bathroom...

I just spent a good minute or so musing whether you meant "spices used for making jerky" or you were actually calling the spices a jerk... either way I'm really sorry this made me laugh :)

Jerk slices are those used for making a style of food from Jamaica

Maybe it's in the wrong place because you absolutely should laugh at this. Valentine is getting this costume this year.

Hmmm, Jerk chicken, so good. Love it when I can have double pan fried plantains with it.

I have already begun the constriction of two very oversized ones for the Akitas after I saw the video a few days ago!

I made another post regarding the death of my best friend's mother.  When my friend called with the news, we discovered that friend's parents will be interred in a niche in the same mausoleum as my parents.  I quipped that they were neighbors in life, and now neighbors for eternity.  Maybe it was horrifically dark humor, but we laughed like loons.

I probably would have, too. It's funny!

I don't think that was dark humor at all.  It's just the sort of humor that families seem to fall into in these situations.  It isn't not at all unusual for people to get giggling fits on solemn occasions.     

FIL died 13 years before MIL.  Both their ashes were scattered in the same place.  It was a bit quiet in the car on the way back after MIL's ashes were scattered but SIL's husband broke the tension. 

'Well, at least FIL had 13 years of peace.'

We all broke up at that one.

I actually find that to be a really nice thought, if they were glad to be neighbours in life! LOL

Friend of mine went out to visit her husband's grave with her daughter.  They have two plots with a stone bearing both names.  To her daughter's shock, Friend decided to dance on her grave.  After all, it's her grave; if she wants to dance on it, she can.  She may have accidentally danced on her husband's grave as well, but figures he'd forgive her.   :)

A friend of mine unfortunately just had to have one of her cats put down due to incurable health problems. Today, she has changed both her Facebook profile pic and her cover photo to closeups of that cat, who was looking into the camera in both shots. They're lovely photos, but one of my first thoughts on seeing them was "It looks like [Kitty] is staring into my soul from beyond the grave" *cue mental Twilight Zone theme music*.  ;D

I should not laugh at an animal in obvious distress, but when the animal is a parrot who is in distress because his human is walking around the house without clothes on, I can't help but laugh. My boyfriend likes to walk around in his birthday suit, and the bird just absolutely can't stand it when he does that.

What does the parrot say?  "Hey, Jake!  Cover up your stuff!"?

He flaps around his cage, obviously agitated, chewing at his box (he has a box on the bottom he likes to hang out in) and chewing on the bars of the cage, squawking nonsense sounds.  As soon as bf gets dressed, the bird calms down.

Does he think it's a snake?
