I was at the hospital again today... none of your beeswax why! ... and I couldn't help but notice that right outside the doors leading to the ICU there was a vending machine selling "Bar-B-Q flavored" fried pork skins! If I were a standup comedian I could really make hay with that. Anyway, it also reminded me that back in high school I had a teacher who claimed to have invented the particular kind of vending machine I saw today: the one that dispenses its goodies via a spiraling metal gizmo. Do you know what I mean? I hope you do. Anyway, you would know one if you saw one.
