    Got a wool jersey with a stain?

    So here's the thing: I love chocolate croissants. I mean, I'm just gaga for them.

    So the problem is, sometimes I sit around and eat them while I'm wearing a wool jersey. The thing about chocolate croissants is that you've gotta eat them warm. The chocolate has to be gooey for you to really experience the magic.

    Sadly, sometimes you spill a little on your jersey. Chocolate and wool really like eachother, so the stain doesn't really come out...until now.

    I was being pouty about it and my grandmother overheard and said, "do you have the shirt with you?" She takes the jersey from me, and spreads about a tablespoon of yogurt on and around the stain. She says, "let this sit for an hour or so, and scrape it with a spoon. Then wet a paper towel, and get the rest off. Wash as usual."

    So I'm thinking, "Yeah, whatever." An hour and some change later, I have a stain-free wool jersey. Thanks grandma! She then said, "Now go outside and Jihad the place from which you bought the croissant, so they will learn not to stain your shirts, the infidel scum."

    this will also work if your wool jersey has a yeast infection.

    You forgot about the part where Bush sends in 15000 troops to "protect" the indigenous people of the croissant shop. There have also been reports circulating through the AP wire that the oil fields in the back alley of the croissant shop have been targeted for protection to allow the indigenous people a chance to restabilize their economy, post-protection action.

    You really should have let me know about your addiction...er...love of choco croissants before you came up here last time. Place not too far from my house makes these croissants that are exploding with chocolate. Seriously, about 4 or 5 times what you'll find in your run-of-the-mill chocolate croissant. They've been slowly going out of business for the past few years, and I'm convinced that it's because they spend so much on chocolate.

    Nabolom bakery on Russell (one block north of Ashby) just east of College in Berkeley. It takes me two or three sittings to finish one of them, and I'm a chocolate fiend.

    you wants me to bring some down next weekend? BUT you must finish it in one sitting...wearing ONLY the wool jersey. You lose points for every new choco stain you get, but will win points for doing while one of you janky rigs.

    We remember when you used to ride bikes...

    Then again, it might be hard to ride while carrying that giant cross on your back.

    Yeah, it also must be hard to come up with your own jokes.
