Can you get vulture brains at a Chinese apothecary?

Lem said...

Got me. I thought it was a smoke brand.

This may lead to a Vulture brain bubble among short sellers. And I suspect that Ted Turner will soon be raising more than buffalo out on his hugh Nebraska and Montana ranches.

Scott said...

That would make sense, so it's probably the wrong answer.

They would probably have to be African or Chinese vulture brains, since vultures are probably protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.

Which also prohibits the commercial exploitation of photographs of crows.

What do you expect form 8th worlders?

That brain wasn't so lucky for the vulture now, was it?

Scott said...

Unlucky for the vulture, lucky for the gambler. It's vulture brain fate hysteresis. Duh!

traditionalguy said...

Wait a minute. The zombies at the Vegas slots all night awaiting the machine to die and pour forth a jackpot do look and move around like the vultures.

Lem said...

Vultures are scavenging birds that feed mostly on the carcasses of dead animals.

I dont get it !?

The real question is who will these poor victims be able to sue when they develop lung rot?

They have designated vulture brain smoking areas?

Oliver Davies said...

How many ground vulture brains does one need in order to make a decent roll-up?

I could do with a bit of luck...

Lem said...

The FDA says that the brains of any Vulture that has fed on Helen Thomas has been deem unfit for smoking.

The claim is that smoking them allows you to see the future.

It works because when you try it, you see the future wherein you are a sucker.

No one beats the bookies!...evah!!

Look for a black market in vulture brains.

At least one person is always creating their own luck.

Scene in a Diner:

"One Vultureburger comin' right up!"

"Whatsamatta, you got wax in your ears you damn dumb Greek? I said 'Cheesevultureburger, Cheesevultureburger, Cheesevultureburger!'"

But they are far sighted. They can be high above and spot a dead animal before anything else does.

Lem said...

I'm near sighted.. I'm on the market for love starved vulture brains.. if you spot one gimme a call.. I'll smoke her out ;)

Lem said...

Check out Obama's language over at Drudge.

Reminds me of VP Bush 41 "kick a little ass" comment.

Actually, they will cruise looking for dead bodies, but home in by smell as or more often. Kinda hard to know the percentages since we can't ask.

I have tried smokin' from the vulture brain bowl...It never lent me powers of clarity into the future, but you would be surprised as to how you are drawn to the back end of the fridge when the munchies hit!

@Lem: or the Jimmy Carter "whip his ass" statement.
