Wanted Real Cowboys:
An old cowboy went to a bar and ordered a drink. As he sat there sipping his whiskey, a young lady sat down next to him. She turned to the cowboy and asked him, "Are you a real cowboy?" He replied, "Well, I've spent my whole life on the ranch, herding horses, mending fences, and branding cattle so I guess I am."
She said, "I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about women. When I shower, watch TV, everything seems to make me think of women."
A little while later, a couple sat down next to the old cowboy and asked him, "Are you a real cowboy?" He replied, "I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian."

Lounging Through The News: Lobsters Thief Pinch
(2000, England) This tale proves that crime does pay, if you're fishing for elective surgery to go along with your stolen goods. A 24-year-old supermarket shoplifter stuffed a pair of live lobsters in his pants and sprinted for the door, but he never had a chance. The violated crustaceans brought the thief to his knees in front of startled cashiers when they fastened their powerful claws around his delicate parts. Doctors were able to remove the animals with pliers. They say the thief will fully recover -- except for one small detail. "It was a do-it-yourself vasectomy."

Lounging With A Video:
In the B.K. Lounge Laboratory we make soups and stews. Sometimes spending a considerable amount of time trying to skim off fats that puddled on the top. Usually the end result was the same, burns and a spoon at the bottom of the pot.
Ice cubes will remove the fat much easier. Just drop a few into the pot and stir; the fat will cling to the cubes. Discard the cubes before they melt.
Do not discard the ice cubes into your sink and make sure if you toss them in the garbage you are not using paper trash bags.
The B.K. Lounge Grill: Spicy Beef with Citrus Spinach Salad
1 Tablespoon oil
Grate top layer of peel from orange and save for salad dressing.
In a bowl squeeze orange through strainer. Add soy sauce, sesame oil, crushed red pepper, garlic and catsup and set aside.
Slice beef across the grain into bite size strips and set aside.
Heat wok until water sizzles in it. Add the oil and then toss in the carrots, onion, and garlic. Stir constantly for about three minutes or until veggies are crispy tender. Remove from wok.
a little more oil if needed and toss in the beef and stir fry for 3 minutes
or until it reaches desired doneness. Return veggies to wok and drizzle
orange juice mixture, heat through and serve over pasta. YUMMMMM.
Citrus Spinach Salad
grated orange peel from spicy
In a small sauce pan over medium heat constantly whisp grated orange peel, egg, sugar, vinegar, water and salt. It will foam up and get thick in a couple of minutes. Remove from heat. If you want to thin out the flavor a little you can cut it with Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise.
Pull the stems from the spinach and cut into 1/2 inch strips. Peel orange and cut into bit size chunks. Toss together in a bowl.
Spoon the dressing over salad as desired.
