Good morning crew,

As a side note; after months of missed opportunities I finally got to do that Coca-Cola ribs recipe I have been wanting to try for months.

It's not real complicated. You just rub a slab of ribs with some brown sugar and a few other things, and then stick the slab in a baking dish, pour a can of Coke over it and bake them for three hours. After that they only need ten minutes on the grill to char them a bit.

They weren't bad, by any means, but there wasn't anything special about them. Kind of bland, to be completely honest.

They say you can clean a toilet with Coke, I don't know why I thought it would turn ribs into something exceptional.

Laugh it up,

Joe

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the Bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.

She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

On a recent trip to Washington, D.C., my brother-in-law overheard a patriotic father pointing out a well-known building to his son. "You see that triangular-shaped octagon over there? That's the Pentagon."
