Everything, lark and obfuscation

- By the dawn's early light, MR C's dispels the notion that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.

- Friend Steve's endearing statement about his participation in an upcoming chicken cook-off on Saturday: "Listen now, don't get your hopes up regarding my chicken wings. I'm just doing this on a lark."

- From Twitter, a "tweet" from a self-described "Bio Founder. Engineer. Surfer. CEO. Globe Trotter. Bluewater Sailor. MBA Kid. Enjoyer of Life. Doer of Things": "oh the caesar cipher, you're so simple I can't even call you encryption, but as obfuscation goes, you'll do." ...Huh?

lol @ Mr. C - he has A LOT of faith in his meatloaf!

Steve sounds like a genuine sweetheart!

Never mind the "caesar cipher", Mr. Bio Founder Surfer, send a deciphering system with your ambiguous tweets! :)

Good morning Talon!

And I've never tried the meatloaf, but someday...

Steve is such a nice man. This is his first cook-off!

Twitter. I rarely update - I just mainly read the "tweets" from friends, chefs, foodies, and Sockington the cat. So I don't know why this guy even found me to "follow." But I had to chuckle at the obfuscation. Such a great word, too. :)

Oh, I just loves me some hot wings. With beers. Umn, umn. Summertime good!

And hopefully they're not lark wings?


Mama Zen said...

That first one totally cracked me up!

Lynn said...

Jannie -

Me, too! And love the cold beer, too - should be a good day for it. This will be some sort of smoked variety - but not lark, chicken. :) Wish I could be a judge, but will have some other gals with me to cheerlead for Steve.

Mama Zen -

Yes - the hokey pokey was formerly what it was all about, but now - meatloaf. :)
