Oh yeah, baby!

Good for her. I have an Emeril pot. Those things are big, and heavy, and pack a wallop, evidently.

She needs to use my golf theory;swing hard in case you hit it.

"We've been married 47 years and she raised our five sons. She's not afraid of anything."

What, they were The Wild Bunch?

great video!

Has she been tested for steroids? The Marlins could use her.

1: It's a sauce pan.
2: It's a weapon
3: You're both right.

Lo these many years ago, in my sinful youth, when I was going out with a Country Girl...

We were making out in her kitchen. Her little sister came home from school and the GF, not wanting us to get walked in on by little sis, said "stop". Well, my hands were in Interesting Places, so I didn't stop. GF grabbed one of the cast iron skillets (a small one, thank God) and WHAM! upside my fool head. Rang my bell real good.

And that, boys and girls, is how wiredog learned that 'stop' means 'stop' and 'no' means 'no'.

A few days later she made up for smacking me upside the head, but I still think of her every time I see a skillet that's Suitable For Household Defense.

A bottle of Jack Daniels was destroyed?! *SOB!*

A cast iron skillet would make more of an impression...

She really did kick it up a notch!

*Settles down with cushions by the fireplace*

Tell us another one, Uncle Wiredog ....

Is our wiredog learning??

Yes he is.

Har! Cast iron skillet simulblog!

Gotta clean out that purse one of these days...

Their problems merely began when they opened up McGee's closet door ...

Geezer warning O?

"I picked up the saucepan and smacked him right on the head," she said. "He looked at me and said, 'Lady, why did you do that?' And I hit him again."

There are just no words for that except this guy wins the prize for the most useless question ever uttered during a robbery.

"We've been married 47 years and she raised our five sons. She's not afraid of anything."

There are only four horsemen of the apocalypse. What does the fifth kid do?

Ouch! Coffee out the nose. Thanks wiredog.

She was upset that she had to turn over her favorite saucepan as evidence.
Give it back to her soon, please. She still has a double boiler and she's not afraid to use it.

Good story, wiredog. Maybe you'll save a few male noggins from bein' skilleted. Nah, probably not.

Now she is unarmed.

She was apparently trying to serve them the Grand Slam Breakfast special.

"Now she is unarmed."

When saucepans are confiscated, only criminals will have saucepans.

Later, they realized that they had hired one of the suspects to shovel their driveway several weeks ago. "My wife gave them a big tip, so they thought we had money," he said. "It's sad when that's what you get for trying to help someone."

I alwys order the sweet breads with a nice karma sauce when we go out to eat.

Emeril cookware.

Bottle of Jack Daniels.

Sounds like my kind of kitchen.

I agree with Allen. That's just sad.

( Dems add " Saucepan Control " to their social agenda. )
