Folks on Fb posting a recipe for “popcorn stuffing” jogged my memory of the next true story: Once I was 16, I attended Thanksgiving at my spiritual aunt and uncle’s home. They’d additionally invited an historic Irish nun. As a budding reprobate and dirtbag, I used to be uncomfortable within the presence of a fully-habited illustration of Catholicism.
Earlier than dinner, Sister Mary Katherine cornered me within the den and mentioned, “Excuse me, son, are you aware in the event that they put popcorn within the stuffing?”
I mentioned, “I’m unsure, sister, however why would they try this?”
She paused after which replied, “As a result of that manner, when it’s completed, it’ll pop its ass off!” Then she clapped me on the again and guffawed loud and lengthy. It was the funniest joke I’d ever heard. (After dinner, we snuck exterior and smoked cigarettes and she or he instructed me she didn’t believed in God anymore however didn’t remorse changing into a nun due to the nice work she had achieved.)
Anyway, it was a joke when that nun mentioned it, and it’s a joke now. Snopes did the analysis, and the corn wouldn’t pop even when you have been dumb sufficient so as to add it to your stuffing. This dude truly tried it!
