So yesterday we discussed what is going on down in Haiti with people so poor that they've resorted to eating cookies made out of mud just to satify their hunger pangs.
Last nightI was gonna stop on my way home and have steaks but really started feeling kinda guilty about the whole thing so I stopped and had turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes and corn (lots of salt) and one of those biscuit things instead of a steak. And folks think I can be an unfeeling Republican. HA! In your face!
But the whole situation IS sad. Kids are starving. They're poor. They're hungry.
But do they also have to be stupid?
If I'm living in Haiti and am starving and am about to eat mud and dirt well believe you me I'm gonna be making me Mud Steaks and Mud Pancakes. Maybe some Mud Tacos....Mud McDonald's Hash Browns (those would be AWESOME!)....maybe a Mud lasagana. Mudghetti and Mudballs. I'm gonna be dining like a King in the best little mud Restaurant on the island (Haiti is an island, correct?)
Not that there is anything wrong with mud cookies....but kids being kids always want to fill up on junk food before dinner.
As a starving kids parent I'd make sure that my little VoodooValerie was getting all of the basic food groups first:
1. dry dirt.
2. gravel fortified soil
3. pebbles n' clay
4. and of course natural mud.
5. And whatever other mud groups there are. (I can't find the dirt pyramid)
Mud cookies. Are these kids really that dumb? Make a freakin' Mud Reese's Cup (it's the most popular of the mud candies)
So To Sum Up:
Mud Chops and Applesauce.
