Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

Egads! Well, thank goodness cream only comes from tall rectangular cartons!

Gosh! Is there anyone else out there who prefers instant Maxwell House to Starbucks, even though there's a Staarbucks store on every corner?


LOL-- some people will pay for anything, i guess.

Ron, i'll personally introduce you to some beautiful creamers that are definitely not rectangular. And, they're warm, 2.(Mooo-OOOoooo)

You know, I'm actually rather proud of my openness to try new culinary things, but coffee beans crapped by civet cats is probably my limit.

Yes, I think I'll take a pass on coffee that's already been passed.


So this wouldn't work if I gave Chico and Ashley my Dunkin' Donuts coffee?


And here my instant assumption about where it had been was: orbit. I suppose that says something about when I grew up -- when things that went into space were the ones with outrageous costs/prices.


Ah, this one is the gift that keeps on giving . . . I am ROTF this morning.


Geez, I forgot I've actually tasted a cup of coffee made from these crazy beans! If coffee had platelets, and I had to get a transfusion in the hospital I think I'd ask for the Peet's AB negative! (with a frother wand in the IV bag, if I wanted it "latte")

At any rate, this stuff was no big whoop! So much so, I'd forgotten I'd had it...


Yeesh - special doesn't begin to cover it! For $50, it'd better have been filtered through Jessica Alba!


I kept looking for "The Onion" banner on the article, thinking it couldn't possibly be real. But, alas, it is, further proving that our civilization is going BONKERS. And if the makers of that coffee get that much for the stuff, don't tell me they're not caging civets and force-feeding them those beans. Anyone who buys that stuff should have their head examined.

Mmm, Dunkin Donuts you're talking!

Where it's bean?

You hardly need an official pun-dit anymore. My work here is through. [Through it like crap through a goose...I know why the caged civat poos...Scat-man Caruthers as their Mrs. Olsen?...cut out the middleman on those coffee enemas!]


No, no! *gasping* We need you! We need you!


don't tell me they're not caging civets and force-feeding them those beans.

Of course they are. Keep reading. And the coffee doesn't taste the same. Of course.


heh-- i've been telling my family this one and they don't really believe me to which i should respond: "I sh*t you not!"
