Mmmm…chemicals!

This ugly hobgoblin floated up in my FaceBook feed today. Not horrified yet? He comes with an earworm. (I swear that video gets more pixelated every time I see it. By next time, it’ll be downright cubist).

I listened to this stupid jingle all my life, but my version doesn’t include Mr Odom’s formula. That one predates me and you can tell it’s Fifties because they’re bragging about putting mystery chemicals in your food.

“We add a dash of X, and a pinch of Z, and for flavor and taste we add Y-9D!”

I wonder if there ever really was a Y-9D?

Anyway, I miss country sausage. There’s nothing really special about it, it’s just very peppery sausage patties, but ubiquitous where I grew up. The nearest it got to nationwide was Jimmy Dean’s Pork Sausage, which was a pretty adequate country sausage. Not like the homemade stuff, but not bad.

Bangers and mash tonight. Okay, bangers and fried potatoes, but close enough.
