Phone cam round-up

Bill, frequent commenter on the Owner's Manual, recently paid a visit to Northeast Ohio.

BagTree commons.


Who in the hell eats Circus Peanuts?

The Goat in his cups

A dazzling array of microwave cookbooks! I wonder if Al the Retired Army Guy would be interested in any of these. Hm ...

I don't believe you. I think you'd much rather tell me to eff off.

Deflation in the United States of America.

Yet another image sent to my by Hal Perry, who denoted it thusly: One day, that will be me. Baby, it already is.

If you tried to save grapes in the tomato saver, would they go bad?

Eggstractor, Food Processor and Blender, assorted hot pots and Snow Shaver/Rape-Glace. Christmas shopping's finished for 2011! Thanks, Unique Thrift.

C'mon down and set a spell.

?~?~terrifying mystery vortex~?~?

Well hello, Dolly. (submitted by yet another mysterious reader!)

Lastly, a screen capture taken earlier today. Welcome Department of Defense visitor. We hope you've had a pleasant stay here at the Owner's Manual and invite you to come back often. Thanks also to Just An Average Joe for sending you my way.

It will probably surprise absolutely NO ONE here that I, Mrs. C, eats Circus Peanuts.

Bill said...

Had I known I would be pictured on the great EOB blog, I wouldn't have worn my work boots and pajama bottoms.

Ben said...

I, too, eat circus peanuts.

And sno-balls, if you know what they are.

Bad grapes can influence everyone in the vegetable bin, you gotta get them out early.

Some peeps are having trouble accessing the DoD site. Here's a screen capture of what I saw there.

Hal said...

I have come to realize that I am infinitely more interesting than The Most Interesting Man in the World.

Though I have yet to be the best man of a groom I've never met.

Erin O'Brien said...

The only way Hal could be more interesting is if he ate Circus Peanuts.

Circus Peanuts
- Made by Clowns, for Clowns.

(And what in the name of all that is good and salty is a 'rape-glace'?!)

VideoDude said...

Since everyone else has confessed, I too eat Circus Peanuts! I don't know why. I love them!!!

Phone cam round up is one of my favorite things you do, but who's choosing? I would like to steal it for my blog, but I can't operate a cell phone.

I used to love circus peanuts, but that was a long, long time ago. I never knew they weren't loved by everyone in the world until I met my husband who told me that they are gross. I am forever scarred.

Hal said...

I did eat Circus Peanuts on an occasion or two when I was a wee young lad. I have to say, however, that even though I had the sweetest of teeth - still do - just thinking of how much sugar were in one of those things would almost make be diabetic. So it wasn't often that I had them.

Erin O'Brien said...

Oh great. Now I actually want to try some goddamn Circus Peanuts.

I have visited the factory where they make circus peanuts. They recommend eating them warm...

Al The Retired Army Guy said...

I've eaten Circus Peanuts. But only after they've been microwaved.


Vince said...

Just a question on the 4x4. Are they used for off-roading work, you know real stuff. Or like here for mothers bringing the little spawn to the school door. Where on a regular basis some of the kids find themselves under the bull-bars.

Erin O'Brien said...

Al, that was funny.

Vince, I don't think this 4x4 is used for much of anything. But then again, I just take the pictures.

Joe said...

I like circus peanuts in very small doses, but alas I can't eat them any more.

Thanks for the link

jo said...

Circus peanuts are best eaten after they've been smashed flat, kinda like circus peanut roadkill. I don't recommend the same prep for a snoball however.

Al The Retired Army Guy said...


I'm a funny guy, actually. Really.


rraine said...

circus peanuts? absolutely, tho few and far between.
that doll is scary.
