I remember these!

Physalis. I mean, I don’t remember it from childhood. Do you? It’s South American, so I feel like I should. I remember it from when Uncle B grew it for me in the greenhouse some years ago.

If you’ve not had them, they have a tart and interesting flavor. The Wikipedia article says grapes or tomatoes, but I think oranges with a twist (okay, they’re orange in color and I’m suggestible).

You’d starve to death trying to eat enough for a meal, but they’re great as a mouth refresher.

So, is everyone excited about the Dead Pool tomorrow at 6 WBT? I know I am!

Golden berries. And they’re awesome.

Now, Bill Gates next? Or John Kerry?

So many who need judgement, so few deadpools.

@Durnedyankee — Amen to that! You’d have a hard time cramming all the deserving picks into the Mauna Loa crater, although I’d sure like to try.

I’ve tried picking people who look like they’re not going to last much longer, but it is SOOOOO much more satisfying to pick bad people I don’t want to see any more of.

Uncle Al, that is my entire Dead Pool philosophy. Why would I pick Bob Barker? What has he ever done to me?
Gates, OTOH…

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
