>This I need… "Watch out where the huskies go"

>So I’m in Stonewall Kitchens in York, Maine.

End of the holiday season and they’re selling of all SORTS of festive (and non-festive) crap that – surprisingly – doesn’t appear to be flying out of the door at any great speed.

All sorts of ESSENTIAL thingies, actually, like a vegetable peeler that you clip over your finger and then attack a carrot as if you were stroking the dog.

Or rubber bands out of silicone for tying up beans (that’s what the label says, anyway) to stop them swimming around the cooking pot at random.

Or flexible tennis racquet-like thingies that peel and slice avocados in one go.

Yeah, right.

But they DID have something that appeared to be quite popular if the almost empty jars were anything to go by

Yellow snow.

With a picture of a peeing dog on the packet.

Just like Steve Fullmer‘s.

They’re actually citrus flayoured crystals, but the resemblance to the real life item is quite stunning.

“This is cute” said the lady at the checkout “It’s very popular”

“Yeah, I bet it’s dirty minded old men like me who also dig Frank Zappa” I said

Blank look.

(As in “This person is talking on tongues” blank look.)

“Watch out where the huskies go..?”

She backs away perceptibly and looks around nervously, so I leave it at that.

But she was MY age!

Haven’t they heard of Zappa up here?

For the musically challenged

Yellow snow.mp3

And the lyrics
Dreamed I was an eskimo Frozen wind began to blow Under my boots and around my toes The frost that bit the ground below It was a hundred degrees below zero… And my mama cried And my mama cried Nanook, a-no-no Nanook, a-no-no Dont be a naughty eskimo Save your money, don’t go to the show Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh Well I turned around and I said ho, ho And the northern lights commenced to glow And she said, with a tear in her eye Watch out where the huskies go, and dont you eat that yellow snow Watch out where the huskies go, and dont you eat that yellow snow

And just LOOK at that bloody session band!
