“Slumgullion” Singing Whatever Gets Put into the Pot

Just what is “Slumgullion”? Think of putting a big pot on the stove, starting off with some beef stock, or chicken, or both, or maybe turkey. Grill or fry up whatever meat you have. Fish, too. Then some onions, and peas, and maybe a turnip.

The Parable of the Texting Waiter

 Robert Burgo

 

In Matthew 23:25, Jesus uses an analogy to describe the hypocrites of His day.  He says, "...you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside, they are full of extortion and self-indulgence."  I'd like to describe this in modern terms.
