Spittlecock'd Eel

"No man lards salt pork with orange-peel,

or garnishes his lamb with spittlecock'd eel."

William King

Now that's an interesting quotation--

but how in tarnation do I work it into a conversation?

I'm chuckling, wondering if you think I've lost my mind.

The title got your attention though, didn't it?

Here's the next topic for today,

do you have any Indian corn in your autumn decor inside the house?

This was my vase last year and about this time little holes appeared in the kernels

and little moths hatched out, flying everywhere.

That's about as gross as spittlecock'd eel on lamb.

No more Indian corn inside the house for me.
