I know which ones you guys will be wanting to eat..all of them..ain't Texas grand.
I have an idea for one..deep fried rum balls.
I notice they don't have skunk eggs..We need to send some up for next year . Although I still think I have the best idea of making them the exact same way except smaller and calling them Skunk Balls...So far I'm the only one that thinks it's a good idea.
If I ate one of everything on that list? I'd be in a diabetic coma till 12-21-12 and the Mayans come and get me. fuckme I'll never walk the run way again.
