What's the Word? Thunderbird!

Some current headlines seem to be channeling gosporn:

Swiss 'rocketman' crosses the English Channel in 10 minutes

Swiss pilot Yves Rossy landed near Dover in southern England after flying across the English Channel on a jet-powered "wing." "It was perfect. Blue sky, sunny, no clouds, perfect conditions," Rossy told the Associated Press.

Note the H insignia on the wings... logo of Hublot Watches, his sponsor. The English Channel (22 miles across) is another Jordan River resonator - a symbolic crossing. Yves was doing 1.1 mile/minute.

Rocket Fuel in Lettuce

Eating lettuce or other vegetables grown in fields irrigated by the Colorado River may expose consumers to a larger dose of toxic rocket fuel than is considered safe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, according to test data and documents obtained by Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Test results never before made public show that leafy vegetables grown with contaminated irrigation water take up, store and concentrate potentially harmful levels of perchlorate, a thyroid toxin that is the explosive main ingredient of rocket and missile fuel.

California produce is irrigated by the Colorado River, and then shipped all over the country. So... we're ALL eating rocket fuel. (As per, the gov sees no cause for alarm)

The Rocket/Grail in The Rocketeer is fueled by clean burning ALCOHOL, and I remember how my fraternity bros would brew a particularly potent punch for house parties they branded ROCKET FUEL.

The most infamous "fortified" wine in the states is Thunderbird Brand - brewed by E&J Gallo Winery, Modesto, CA.

"What's the word? / Thunderbird / How's it sold? / Good and cold / What's the jive? / Bird's alive / What's the price? / Thirty twice."

5 4 3 2 1... Thunderbirds are GO!

NOTES:

Yves calls himself "FusionMan", and considering his name, EVE Rosy, hmmm...

V and I lunched at a Thai (Tie) restaurant today that served us a tiny green salad starter covered with a milky white dressing. Considering the lettuce/Min/Jizz line, I almost sent it back! But hey, who am I to turn down the secret sauce o' love?

was it tahini sauce made from sesame?

Besides Rocket fuel & Thunderbird, there was also Mad Dog, God Dam

Lettuce Pray

No, I'd have recognized that. It was sweet, sticky and icky. Mad Dog is a good one. Beer, wine and liquor labels are an endless source of amusement.
