Dave!Today's word in the TWENTY/TWENTY meme is "promises."

About the only promise I feel like making right now is that I will never, ever eat another Hot Pockets product again. Last night after eating their Three Cheese "Stuffed Crust Pizzeria" pockets for dinner, I ended up about as sick as I've ever been. It was if my insides decided to explode non-stop from both ends, with paralyzing cramping as a bonus. I felt like I was going to die which, given the agony I was enduring, would have been a blessing...

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave on the toilet while puking on Bad Monkey.

I was still not fully recovered this morning. So I guess what they say about Hot Pockets is true. So horrible.

Anyway... this is supposed to be a photo meme, so here you go...

HK Fortune Teller

This is a photo of Master Fortune Teller I visited in Hong Kong Central. I asked him how long it would be before I returned to Hong Kong, to which he promised "next year."

That was in 2005.

I haven't been back since.

So much for promises.

Which is a shame, because I really like Hong Kong, and would very much like to visit again. If, for no other reason, so I could eat buttery McCorn and FRIED McPies again...

HK McCorn

Mmmmmm... FRIED McPies!

    And in Hong Kong, you don’t have to pay taxes for massive government entitlements! Wow, I sound like an asian Yakov Smirnoff!

      I know! That useless Medicare prescription drug entitlement that the Republicans rammed down our throat during the Bush administration is going to cost us 1.5 TRILLION DOLLARS over 10 years… AND MOSTLY BENEFITS THE DRUG COMPANIES, NOT OUR CITIZENS! Thank heavens President Bush left office before initiating even more of his outrageous tax-and-spend policies that kowtow to big business at the expense of US taxpayers! Between drug companies, oil companies, and the meat industry, I’m surprised President Bush didn’t bankrupt us with all the money he handed out!

    And this is why I’ve never had more than a couple of Hot Pockets in my life time. Give me the McD’s Big Mac instead.

    So much for Hong Kong predictions.

    • Dave2 says:

      It’s now been TWO DAYS since I ate Hot Pockets (and ONLY Hot Pockets, so there’s nobody else to blame) and I am STILL feeling nauseous. Cannot believe that people can consume them without dying.

  3. Sybil Law says:

    Wow! Look at that McButter on that McCorn!!

  4. muskrat says:

    McCorn? Really? I though McD’s only served corn via its beef and soft drinks.

    • Dave2 says:

      In Hong Kong they serve a slightly more healthy version of corn with McCorn Cups!*

      *Until you add the McButter, of course.

  5. RW says:

    I always ask mind readers what my name is. If they can’t answer I keep walking. For fortune tellers I always ask if they see me giving them money for their services. If they say yes I walk away. If they say no… well they got one right.

  6. So, what I’m getting from this is that you’re a Hot Pocket-eating piece of white trash. SWEET!!!
