Fried Chit'lins -- YUM YUM, Y'ALL!
BY VERNE STRICKLAND NOVEMBER 17, 2012
SO WE PICK THIS CONVERSATION UP MIDSTREAM. THAT'S WHEN I GOT INTO IT, BUT SHOULD HAVE KEPT MY MOUTH SHUT -- OR SO FULL OF FRIED FOOD THAT I COULDN'T SPEAK.
I have never ever done it... it looks nasty...
- Laurie Reynolds Deep fried butter.. I love butter.. but really.. ?
- Verne Strickland Oh come now, friends. Don't you know that not only rednecks like me grew up on deep fried foods, but also most people of color? That could make you a bigot. It's a Southern tradition! This big noise you're making is just a bit feigned, wouldn't you say? Now I'm with you on the Democratic Party and unions, but fried foods do not belong on the same menu. Agreed? So why offend your Southern neighbors?
- Verne Strickland Dear Laurie: I talked with God about this fried food thing. He said "Stop being stupid." Yes, Lord. "And stop acting childish." I understand, Lord. "And apologize to the people you have offended by being overly-sensitive." No problem, Lord.
"Well do it now!" Yes, Lord. Laurie and all my friends who make fun of fried foods, I'm sorry. I will stop acting childish and stupid. "And just stick to what's important." Thank you, Lord. "And use those talents I gave you to glorify my Name and the Kingdom." I will, Lord. "Okay. I'll see you sometime soon." Whenever you call, Lord. Praise your name. I like my job. And I love you. In Jesus' Holy Name, Amen.
