Sit 'n Spin

Here at the Gosporn Kitchen, we love our salads. So much so that we consider a salad spinner an essential tool, no mere luxury. We literally pulled the handle off our previous Zyliss "Easy-spin" spinner, so Var brought home a new one recently - the OXO brand version.

As long time Gosporn readers may know (see The Min in Me), lettuce (or rather, its milky white sap) is a symbol of Min, the pre-dynastic Egyptian Creator God - the dude who master-baited BEING (Ego) into existence. His other symbol is the bull. (We'll note that Zeus took the form of a bull to court Europa).

The interesting thing about the OXO brand lettuce spinner is that it utilizes a piston-like pumping action to spin the wheel, which sounds exactly like the TARDIS starting up! So we have lettuce (semen) of the OXO (bull) inseminated into a spinning container (Gaia, Europa, Mary, TARDIS, etc.) Tasty!

Another tasty treat, via our favorite 80's drag queen, Pete Burns: You Spin Me Round

The sounds of screeching breaks... (k)NOT(work) is Pete Burns everyone's favorite eighties trans (that is, besides George O'Dowd), but nowadays he's had so much "work" (read: plastic surgery) that he sports the "cool slut" look, altho' prefers to remain "intact) Johns-Hopkins transexual medicine argot for "retaining the patient's male genitalia"). Take it from there.

Elizabeth Hand, fantasy novelist's foray into presentday Bull Cult & Goddess worship, Waking The Moon (1995), positively renders an End of Civilisation As We Gno It scenario.

Another of her gems, Glimmering (1998) takes place in this Yonkers Græco-Roman Revival estate-turned-preserve, Untermyer Park, which is where, under the influence of 750 micrograms Windowpane, the male & female Etruscan sphinxes came to life.

Lettucene™, an advertising vendor in the pages of the surprisingly still invenient HIGH TIMES is a legal high that is extracted from the milkt essence of the wild European lettuce.

Class dismissed, see y'all next winky-wink,

Hi Devin, thanks for stopping by.

Lettucene? That's priceless.

Despite the stereotype of the shopaholic spendthrift NYC girl, I've always been a deeply austere, Spartan spender. Then again, I might consider investing in something a lot like this:

Adult-Sized Sit n'Spin

Definitely one of the top ten toys of all time.
