The 96er.

The Great Outdoors (1988) - For more of the funniest videos, click here.

Remember that scene in that great movie The Great Outdoors? Remember that we just got a freezer full of beef?

The meat in our freezer is wrapped in white butcher paper. The outside is stamped with what is inside. Most of the time it is like a crap-shoot with what will be in the package. For example, package that is stamped with "Sirloin Steak", I expect there to be some sirloin steaks.

This is what I got:

Yes, that is a 9 x 13 pan I have that bad boy defrosting in. There are two of them at that size. Maybe that is a regular piece of meat, but it is definitely not something I see in the Mart meat section.

I wasn't sure how to tackle that big boy. I chose grillin' as my method of destruction. I happened to pick a dark evening when the temperature was in the single digits. Here is my setup:

This was the finished product. It hung over the plate. It reminded my of the 96er. I didn't make Farmer Brown eat the fat and gristle. That went to Honey Dog.

(I'm such a ding-dong - I tried searching for the "69er" on Google to find the John Candy video. I didn't get anything close to what I was looking for.)

Mmm...a big slab o' beef. I'm in!
I probably should cheer for the Steelers if I want to be cheering for the winners :P

It's just like that I Love Lucy episode where Lucy and Ethel shove a side of beef in their new freezer and of soures, Lucy gets locked in.
Please tell me you are old enough to have watched I Love Lucy...
Anywho---thanks for commenting on my blog (jamjarboogie).
That was just my whine about big boobs. The post about my fat ass/belly/thighs would take up too much real estate on the blog!
It's just that those facebook comments about my photo keep pouring in...I'm feelin' the guilt!
But not enough to stop eating fudge...
