    Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of


    Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Biscuit, the Wonder


    Dog and was in the checkout line when woman behind me


    asked if I had a dog.:rolleyes:



    What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I'm


    retired and have little to do,:idea: on impulse I told her that


    no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet


    again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I


    ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50


    pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with


    tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in


    both arms.


    I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that


    the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with


    Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel


    hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well


    and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here


    that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my


    story.)



    Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care


    because the dog food poisoned me.. I told her no, I stepped


    off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's butt and a car hit


    us both.



    I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart


    attack he was laughing so hard.



    Costco won't let me shop there


    anymore.

    Killer dude!

    That made me think of the joke that the punch line is:

    "That's OK Pasteur, we aren't welcome in the A&P anymore either"

    And to think, she was probably just trying to talk to you about dogs. I guess you showed her.

    Agreed.
    You and Wonder Dog could have had a new friend.

    That is too funny. Did you just get kicked out of the one Costco or the whole chain?
