What’s brown and sounds like a Bell?…..Dung!

Pookaverse continues to blaze it’s trail across the continental United States leaving Pittsburgh on 16/07/2012, crossing the Ohio State line on I-70 Westbound about the same time that most of you were clocking off and thinking about tea/children/squash/running/what David Cameron’s head would look like on a spike outside Blackfriars/the next day/if the Mr/Mrs might be up for some hot action later etc. Pookaverse apologises for the delay since the last full post.

This is in part due to our ability to access to a quote/unquote  ‘High-speed Broadband Connection’. You were due a post from the Quality Inn, Springfiled, OH but unfortunately the broadband was receive only. We also were drinking 1.5 pint cans of Genesee beer – the cheapest from the local supermarket at $1 per can (5.5%) – that trip in itself is a story.

Instead of an overnight stop in Columbus, OH for a next-morning stop to the Wright Brothers Museum in Dayton, OH, Pookaverse landed at this motel and in turn tumbled down the rabbit hole of the most unusual Motel stops undertaken on this or any other planet that supports an oxygen atmosphere.

“….and your room is just through the aerodrome on your left Sir”…the bonkers (but utterly delightful) Comfort Inn, Springfield, OH

This motel was used as it subscribes to the Motel/Hotel Voucher scheme for Ohio and surrounding states – the hunt for a cheap(er) place to sleep now a familiar late afternoon for Pookaverse ritual that is helping to keep costs down.

This also means that we tend to stay in the, and lets be fair about this, less-loved ends of cities – where concierge service and a freshly ironed copy of Time magazine are the stuff of a madman’s dreams. Last Night in Springfield, OH was also the first visit by Pookaverse to Taco Bell.

Mixed fortunes really. A friendly smile by our female server followed by ‘dollops and nachos’ . Re-fried bean dollops, smothered in mayo dollops and swirled with lukewarm Monterey jack cheese dollops. Served, and this maybe the critical ingredient, by several bored-looking and disenfranchised  teenagers.

Pool, hot-tub, Fitness room with (crap) wobbly running machine, restaurant, games arcade, etc…

Not for the squeamish. Not again on this trip. Not again in this lifetime. What’s that old song from school – rattled out in a single breadth. Oh yes.

“Yellow-bellied Custard, Green snot pie. All mixed together with a dead dogs eye. Slap it on a taco nice and thick, and drink it down with ice-cold sick.”

I might submit it to Taco Bell as a new marketing jingle. What do you think?

    Hi pookaverse
    Glad to see you too derived the same enjoyment that I got when sampling Taco Bell for the first and last time. I did think about warning you but figured it was something you had to experience for yourselves, and I don’t have the vocabulary to adequately describe it. Great ‘food’ if you can’t be arsed to chew anything.

      I think you’re marketing slogan is better than my marketing jingle Martin. In fact I will be dining out on that one for the next several weeks. Just not at Tacko Blllleeeeuuurrrgghh :?)

    Salmonella Outbreak Investigation

    On January 19, 2012 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report detailing a Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak that had sickened 68 people in 2011, including many hospitalizations, in 10 states: Texas (43), Oklahoma (16), Kansas (2), Iowa (1), Michigan (1), Missouri (1), Nebraska (1), New Mexico (1), Ohio (1), and Tennessee (1). Although the report could not associate the outbreak with a specific food product, it did confirm the illnesses were linked to a Mexican-style fast food restaurant chain, which the CDC only referred to as “Restaurant A”.

    Have a guess who “Restaurant A” turned out to be???
