He's already been told (and warned) to keep his substance-free OPs out of GD.

No, but you could use rabbit. But be aware that many people object to finding hares in their stew.

One unfortunate result of the Mueller investigations is that the supply of forms to obtain proper warrants is depleted.

Every time, is squirrel. Cook squirrel. Kill squirrel. Sometimes in that order. And Americans wonder why Russians think you are evil.

Elephant Stew

INGREDIENTS
1 medium elephant
2 (50 gallon) containers broth
500 lbs assorted fresh vegetables, chopped
2 rabbits (optional)

DIRECTIONS
Cut elephant into bite-size pieces. This takes about 2 months.
Using large kettles, simmer equal parts elephant and vegetables with enough broth to cover.
Cook for a couple days.
If more are expected add the rabbits, but do this only if necessary. Most people don't like to find hare in their stew.

I'd be a grouch too if my pajamas were stretched out of shape.

Bit seriously, I do believe it is a sign of inclusion and egalitarianism that a woman of color has been chosen to be the subject of this week's Two Minute Hate.

I don't like her. You could use her voice to saw down a redwood giant in about ten minutes. Also, she reminds me far too much of the kind of person who makes a very comfortable living advocating for the poor. Not a terrible wrong, not murder, not theft, but it bothers me. May be because the only times I hear from her is when she's pissed off about something. So far, its been something that pisses me off too, so there's that....

Didn't Make It To The Grocery Stew:

One package of ... meat? .. from the freezer (well, looks like meat when you scrape off the ice crystals), diced
Salvageable bits from random vegetables in the back of the refrigerator bin, shredded
Can of Campbell's cream of mushroom soup from back of cabinet (don't look at the sell-by date)
Generous slug of beer or wine

Dump all in pot, bring to boil, turn down heat, cover and simmer while drinking rest of beer/wine

Lift cover; sniff

Dump pot in compost bin; call for pizza delivery

At least "Auntie Maxine" isn't afraid to give it right back to the bastard.
