Flashback Friday: Logic Never Fails

by Janie Jones

This old post reminds me of a joke that went something like:

If olive oil is made from olives, and fish oil is made from fish, then baby oil must be made from babies.


Gross as it is, this is the kind of logic I have to work with in the spud.  And, her logic is impeccable.  I’m sure she is going to grow up and be brilliant.  Can you believe she was only 5 when she came up with this one:

If appleseeds come from apples then naturally pistachios come from ham.

A funny tidbit:

The other day we were eating some mortadella. For those of you unfamiliar with this food item, it is basically baloney but with pistachio seeds in it. I know, I know. Weird. I didn’t buy it, it was given to me by someone who received it as an office Christmas present in one of those gourmet food gift baskets, and being less adventurous, would not touch said mortadella with a ten foot pole so I inherited it.

Any way, the spud cleans her plate except for a pile of pistachios she’s picked out, remarking, “Momma, I don’t like those ham seeds.”

Once I realized what she was talking about I found it quite hysterical. I suppose to a five year old who is less familiar with mortadella than the average individual and more accustomed to picking seeds out of her food than pistachios it probably makes perfect sense.

MMmmm. Ham seeds.

Happy Friday.
