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?

:)

That first one totally cracked me up!

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. :)
