“Oooo…Bob, look at all the choices!”


“Oh, I think I’ll have some Tropical Delight, some Spanish Cream and some Salmon Mold. What do you want, Bob?”


“Come on, Bob, what do you want?”


“Bob will have some Lemon Jelly and some of that Prune Cheese Mold. How delightful!”

    I find it strangely fitting that the fish that the salmon mousse has been molded into looks quite unhappy.

      I noticed that, too! Now I am officially on the search for a “sad salmon” mold!

      I know, there is just something really, really wrong with that Lemon Jelly. Not sure what, but it is really wrong.

    I think I’d go for the Poached Egg Dessert. Nothing like an egg yolk running all over your sweet treat. Now that’s wacky and, and, something.

      Yeah, Kookie, what is up with that? Blech!
