I haven't had it for quite awhile, but I do enjoy it occasionally.
I love fruit cake, and the leftover Christmas pudding after the silly season makes for some of the best fruit cake to be eaten ever.
And I'm going to. Just in from my brothers T'day and they had a huge punch bowl full of this stuff. Of course, I got some of that in my to-go container along with some other delectable delights right at the start. I knew it wouldn't last. And by the time I was ready to leave, I saw the entire bowl was empty. That's some yummy stuff there my friend.
Mmmmmmm F-ru-it-cake!!!! Yes only Claxton the very best!
EWE!!!! And here I was thinking you and I were more alike than not.
So you are not so crazy after all Jim
For about 10-15 years after I turned about 13-14, one of my aunts would send me a fruitcake every Christmas.
Very quickly I determined nobody else in my family wanted them, so I began a tradition of opening our family room sliding door, and chucking the fruitcake discus-style as far as I could. Every year I would get a fruitcake from Aunt Brunhilda and every year I would hurl it out into the blackness of our back yard.
Funny, we never did find any fruitcake remains or fragments in our back yard the next morning. I don't know who or what took them away, but they went somewhere.
I told you they could be used as a discus.
Well......I'm crazy over fruit cake!!
I'm thinking maybe as a blast deflector plate.
Maybe as ballast for an HPR flight.
I wonder if the Guvment' has looked into these as a possible weapon of mass destruction?
Make a stack of them 10m high and launch them in the manner of "Rods from God."
I've already got blast deflector covered too.
Love it❤️ my dad did too rest of the family hates its
what about popcorn balls ? When I was a kid my Aunt made them every year
and I could not wait to go to auntie's house !!!
I'm think'n the bad ones..hard as rocks and tasteless [which are most of them] could easily be used as "bunker busters".
Add some uranium depleted fruit and 'Away we go!'
THAT....is one of the funniest quotes I have ever seen......my wife and I are still laughing! Just imagine Bill Murray saying that!
I wonder what fruit cake mixed with an oxidizer would do? Sugar motor.....with colors from the fruit....hmmm
My guess is a sticky skidmark!!
And pretty STINKY.
Everyone is clearly missing the application as hybrid fuel grains
THAT, and the possibility of complete liftoff failure. CATO comes to mind. "DOODS, did you see that? It was a psychedelic explosion!
Sorry to resurrect, but in tribute to Gary ... you can bait fish with fruit cake, while also using it as a boat anchor.
I'm with Gary, I loathe the stuff.
Good stuff especially cold and with some irish butter on top
How do you know? Maybe they tolerated the salt to get at the olives...
Maybe I've had rockets on the brain too long, but when I see these, I want to throw out the styrofoam ball, slap on dowels, a launch lug and an engine mount. Then head out to the launch range with an edible Sputnik.
They wouldn't eat the olives, just lick and chew leaving them behind.
