The H.O.M. time machine

Ah, yes... time, once more, for the world's most expensive condiment...

"Just remember: you are doing it for LOVE... forget the fact that when you add in your costs for the energy to boil the sap, the time spent, etc., you are creating a $200 bottle of syrup!"

I'm suprised the "greenies" haven't boycotted maple syrup producers. Just think of all the grievous cuts the trees endure (they have feeling too and want to throw off their shackles). Could be the start of something big. Maple syrup producers you have been warned - the Spanish will strip naked and roll around in pancakes and waffles to protest the terrible mayhem of the maple harvest. No innocent fauna was harmed in this cull - only flora. Breakfast will never be the same!

You've never been to British Columbia or San Francisco.

Trust me, they're out there.

You should post some photos of the terrible carnage and bloodshed you're responsible for. Or even better, send some to me.

By that I mean I want to partake of some of that delicious tree blood.

"langmann says... I want to partake of some of that delicious tree blood."

if you're ever transiting through to ottawa or montreal... you'll have to stop in and have some syrup on mrs. neo's famous pancakes.
