Scenes from a Denver, CO farmer's market

At a corn on the cob stand.

Me: "...This corn is tasty."

Corn Lady: "...Yes."

Me: "...Be really good with some butter and seasoning salt."

Corn Lady: "... Well, you would want to use organic butter and sea salt."

Me: "... Why is that?"

Corn Lady: "... You would not want to taint my precious corn with non organic materials."

Me: ".... Though once I purchase it, the corn belongs to me."

Corn Lady: "... I will buy it back."

Me: "... Don't worry lady I am just messing with you. I will use organic stuff. You are a bit different eh?"

Corn Lady: "...George W. Bush stole the elections of 2000 and 2004."

Me: "... Righto. You really are different eh? You, don't know a guy by the name of Willie do you? He is like you...."

Corn Lady: No, but well uh, is he nice?"

Me: "Oh, he is ok."

Corn Lady: "Send him by. I like people that are like minded to me."

Changed for commenter Erica~.

I took all the mean things and a link out..... Maybe I can stay on one of my three reader's good sides.

Wow, Jesse, I have no beef with you. I think you are generally funny and thoughtful, but cant you let that go already? Im not trying to start any fights, but isnt it kind of a waste of YOUR time to be giving Will a hard time so frequently?

So did you RUIN that poor woman's corn with NON-organic butter?
Strauss Cremery makes really good organic butter, milk, yoghurt....
Oh... that wasn't what it was about? The Left (capital "L") is sand in your shoe again? Ya know, Jess, just don't listen to national news. Really, I'm sure that Farmington has a local rag, subscribe and heal yourself. :)
There's probably even a "moderate" rag in Denver.
Did you call Ralph? C'mon, we want to know where Ralph went... puleeeeeeezzz?
Ralph could also probably tell you where to get non-organic corn too.... but then, knowing Ralph, maybe not!
