The Mold Incident





So a family member is eating a sandwich the other day and notices a small, green spot on the bread of the sandwich.

Just one spot, not at all like the one pictured above. Ballistic is how I would categorize the reaction that took place. Gagging and spitting and screaming ensued.


My reaction? I laughed.


My family member didn't find the situation funny at all and began searching the Internet for proof that they had not just ingested a lethal poison.


"They make penicillin out of mold," I giggled. Again, the family member reiterated that my reaction was one of cruelty.


Seems mold is not lethal to ingest in small amounts. It's probably not advised and can sometimes cause stomach aches, but a little green dot on a piece of bread isn't going to kill anyone. Or is it? This got me to thinking.


Penicillium is more often than not the green mold that appears on store bought bread. Research says it isn't great because it risks killing off the good flora in your body and leaving the bad ones, but a small amount isn't going to make a difference one way or the other. Unless you are allergic to penicillin, which could kill you from anaphylactic shock.


We survived the great mold incident. Thank God no one got sick or went into shock, but somehow it turned out to be my fault. How could I let this happen?


Really?


My answer was simple.

When was the last time any of you bought a loaf of bread?...Silence.

Yeah, that's just what I thought.

And then the member of your house hold decided on a salad with mushrooms and blue cheese dressing!

Or heaven forbid, one of those yogurt deals.

Ok! Howdy Partner! Time for SLimer!

Do you ever get that hungry feeling after school?

Boy, I do! I'm so hungry, I could eat a wagon wheel!



When I'm slow on the draw and I need something to chaw,

I hanker for fumunda cheese!

When my ten gallon ass is feelin' five gallons flat

I've got something planned, which is

Little fumunda sandwiches! Come on!



Here's a great little snack to tide you over till dinner!

If you want something that's delicious and nutritious,

fumunda cheese is a super snack! Look! A wienie wheel!



When my get up and go has got up and went,

I hanker for fumunda cheese!

When I'm blowin' a ho down and my boots kinda slow down,

Or anytime I'm week in the cheeks,

I hanker for a hunk of,

A slab, a slice, a chunk of,

A snack that is a wiener,

And it won't spoil my dinner!

I hanker for fumunda cheese! Ya-hoo!
