Sunbelt Expo, day 3 (Thursday)

Got home Friday morning, and vegged out for the weekend. Sort of. No LJ posting or reading, anyway...

Back to the farm show notes:

Things You Don't Have Storage Space For Dept: "Register to win a 90 gallon iron cook pot". This thing looks suitable for your local tribe of cannibals or the witch in Hansel and Gretel--it would hold a couple of adults or a gaggle of children, with room to spare for your favorite mix of stew vegetables. But the H&G witch roasted her victims, IIRC...

Fashion Statement: pencil thin young woman in a long sleeved, pink, tight-fitting hoodie, ragged edge denim short shorts (very short), and knee-high oversized rubber hunting boots.

Brochure handed to us by another exhibitor, making the rounds looking for anyone who might be interested in his product: "Biovator: Controlled Mortality Management". "...capacity...of an average of 350 lbs. of mortality per day... a cost-effective and environmentally sound solution to mortality management...mortalities are processed into compost in 4 to 14 days." It's a chicken-carcass composter. Maybe pig carcasses, too, judging by the photo of the pig, but sales guy just mentioned chickens. Can't they just say "dead animals" or "carcasses" instead of "mortalities"? Sounds so...funeral-home-ish.

"Mortality Management" sounds like Death's job description, if he wore a pinstripe cloak and carried briefcase for his scythe.

Can you measure mortality in pounds? Years seem more appropriate.

It reminds me of the episode of DS9, when Jake & Nog tried to buy the baseball card at the auction. It was bought by a Bajoran mad scientist who had invented a machine to ensure immortality by stimulating the cells so they wouldn't be bored. He also used the phrase "mindless minions of orthodoxy" a lot.
