    A few years ago, I was in my front yard watering plants with a garden hose. My neighbor (a great guy) was using your technique for spreading mulch. Suddenly, he came running into my yard yelling "spray me, spray me". At first, I thought he was joking, until he frantically told me that fire ants were in his mulch and had gotten all over him. So, I dutifully sprayed him down while he proceeded to strip down to absolute necessities in my front yard, with other neighbors watching in shock. Took some 'splaining.

    So, check your mulch before using this method. Just saying.

    I have to use Amdro for fire ant nests a couple times a year.

    I will be interested to know if you are truly punchworthy.

    He did refrain from fetching me a good one, but I'm not sure if it's because I wasn't offensive or because he is too nice a guy.

    Super Fun. Looking forward to doing it again.

    LOL at our waiter at place called HOPS when I asked him for recs from a nice draft list and he said, "I don't really like beer." Great waiter though. Just funny.

    I have noted that for some time on the Duke campus, seems nice...and then a week or so ago the NY Times had a big article on pine needles becoming a big cash crop in NC...I also prefer the look of hemlock mulch, but hey, if nature is going to drop free mulch all around you, why not use it?

    I like that I don’t have to mulch under my pine trees.

    Correct. He comes from good stock too. I've known his dad for 30 plus years.

There was a sex scene and father in law yelled, “You’re missing the tits and bums, dear!” to his wife who was in the kitchen. He also burps with his mouth open and every time he does, his wife says “more tea vicker?” They ruined the climax of the movie by asking each other if they remembered x, y and z before x, y, and zed had happened.

    My wife is about to lose her mind. Speaking of stereotypes, I think they share a few qualities with the So I Married an Axe Murderer parents.
    I gotta know - what was the movie!?!
