Say, what?


Tuesday, November 21, 2006


Not long ago a Hong Kong real estate tycoon and his wife paid $160,000 for an Italian white truffle.

Yes, $160,000 and neither Jesus' nor His mother's picture were on it.

Aren't truffles to be consumed? Would you eat it? I'd think after that delight, you'd be like the goose who laid the golden egg.

I wonder what I could get for my killer chili?

P.S. I was going to say spinach dip, but thought it best not to use killer and spinach in the same sentence.

When Wegman's opened in my neighborhood, they werre selling truffles for $599 per pound. I was going to buy some. But I decided to buy a new computer instead.

Why hasn't some genius thought of a bioengineered truffle. Seems like they could find a way to grow them so that they don't cost so much and have to be sniffed out by a snout burrowing pig. We can make synthetic diamonds and genetically altered chickens but we can't make a stinkin truffle? What is wrong with this world.

Can I put a potato on ebay and pass it off as a white truffle? Hey it is worth a shot right?
