My freezer is empty. What are the pink pizza puff looking things?

Toby said...

Oh yeah, I had troubles pronouncing hamburger when I was wee. I said Hanna-burger. I guess you had to be there, cause I don't see the cuteness either. :)

OK, I am guessing someone got their hands on Laffy Taffy and broke it into pieces and put it there to save it.
MY guess.

I went and got my kid and showed her the picture just now.

"Kid," I said, "what gives with the pink things?"

"That," she said, "is frozen Laffy Taffy that makes a delicious hard treat. And it is not for saving. It is for getting it hard."

So ~d, I believe that gets you two points.

Frozen Laffy Taffy, anyone?

Eve said...

Oh, I thought soggy chicklets or something?!

Toby said...

I'm a man.

Good God! No room for beer mugs to chill!You need two freezers!I am so sorry I did not have any idea...

BEAST said...

See I was quite happy in my ignorance , NOW there are things I need to know.
1.What the hell is Laffy Taffy ?
2.What is wrapped in tinfoil in the tupperware tub (bottom right) and pocking out of the tube (top right)

The truth is out there (apparently)

PDD said...

Okay, I am thinking that maybe this time your daughter thought the gum needed to be put in the freezer to keep from going bad?

PDD said...

I just read all the comments. What in the hell is Laffy Taffy?

Erin O'Brien said...

NG: "Soggy Chicklets" the possiblities are endless.

Toby: I am a woman. We ought to get together sometime.

Josh: Please feel free to send donations. I am glad to see someone recognizes the difficulty of the situation.

Beast: This is Laffy Taffy.

Now then, there are three tinfoil wrapped discs in the tupperware. Each contains an equal amount of salami forwarded to us by my mother-in-law who used to eat salami but no longer will due to a diet restricted by fear. The packaging is hers. We are to return the tupperware after eating the salami and discarding the tinfoil.

The tube is one of those new-fangled wine buckets.

Inside of the new fangled wine bucket is a lemon bread that was given to me as a gift by a friend. We should eat it. It's been in there too long.

Good god, you people know way too much about me.

i wish i had taken pictures of all the odd things under my daughters bed and yes it must be universal , stuff in the freezer. 14? I wonder what mine will do now--never to late to document.
your daughter must crack you up every day.

josh williams said...

Vince said...

This is an example of what life is all about. Doing stuff.

Erin O'Brien said...

PDD: see my previous comment. you and I were posting at the same time!

nadina: time is goig so fast, I could weep.

jw: tks!

vince: exactly right, my friend.

Jozee said...

Obviously your M-I Law"s wrapping style hasn't been passed down yet. Good thing the salami is tightly sealed or else there'd be strawberry -salami Laffy Taffy.

Cute.

I 'm the only wacko making strange things in the freezer these days at our house.

Don't blink! ;-)

Jesus Toast said...

Jessica? Do you have a son or a daughter?

Toby said...

I like that idea.

~d said...

God. Scary how a Mom can tell these things, huh? YAY for me-only two points? (pouts)

lindsay said...

was it green, the lighter?

because i think it was forcibly exploded and set into a found-object sculpture.

Roxi said...

I used to put spoons with peanut butter on them in the freezer.. that was my fun frozen snack..

Blonde Vigilante said...

It looks like a pink tree. Very artistic.

The only problem is that now it will taste like freezer. I hate that.

Anonymous said...

I don't understand how anybody can break laffy taffy apart that symmetrically. I thought they were chicklets because of their perfect shape.

jamwall said...

Mmmmmmmm.......pepto snacks!
