Did Ya?
Matt Tracy

Did ya ever want to do something that you knew was wrong but just didn't care because it wasn't really that wrong to begin with? Here's an example; did you ever want to just cut the cheese big-time in first class on an airplane? Think about it. You are being herded back to the cattle-car they call coach while the first class passengers sit there, already seated, with their extra leg room, just looking all smug. Wouldn't it be nice to know that by farting in first class section they will seal it in with that segregationist curtain. They may not have to see you for the rest of the flight, by they sure have to smell you for awhile. How do you go about doing it? Do you let an S.B.D. do the covert work; (Silent But Deadly, for the uninitiated)? Or do you stop, draw attention to yourself, and bear down so that it makes a serious roar; letting everyone know what you think about their uppity first class? Maybe you aren't the martyr type, but what could they do? Do you think farting in first class is grounds for being denied air passage? If anyone tries it, let me know.

Maybe you aren't the crude and obnoxious type. In that case, while we're in the airport, did ya ever want to play on the baggage claim belt? I know you have because it is the hope of every human that someday we will all get a ride on the most entrancing of service devices. Maybe that is what heaven is. I don't think anyone would complain if heaven were getting to ride around on a luggage conveyor belt for eternity. Why are we so fascinated with it? Stop trying to think that you aren't, because everyone knows we would trade a ride on the super roller coasters of the world just to come down that suitcase chute. What I propose you do is get a hockey bag; those big duffels that look like they could hold two people. It's a good thing they look that way, because I propose that you get in one, brave the flight, luggage handlers, and their strikes, and ride that chute. Not only will you be living out humanity's dream, but you'll get to scare the hell out of whoever sees you get out of the bag.

Finally; did ya ever want to buy the weirdest combinations of groceries just to screw with the person checking you out. What sort of weird combo am I talking about? Glad you asked. First of all, I am not talking about embarrassing stuff like condoms, tampons, and hemorrhoid cream; people actually have to buy all that stuff at the same time every day. What I am talking about are combinations like bullion cubes, black licorice, diapers, and shaving cream. What would you do with all that? That is exactly what the person checking you out is going to ask. What really makes it weird is that not only are you buying those things, but you are buying only those things. Combos that are good to try are a bucket of deli fried chicken, moth balls, boric acid, tin foil, one radish, and a rental copy of The English Patient. This not only works at grocery stores, but at departments stores as well. Who wouldn't think it strange if a customer came to check out with a werewolf mask, five yards of silk, a potted plant, and the first Genesis compact disc?

Why do I propose that we do strange and off color things? Why not?
