What a joy it is to have Pumpkin in the lounge with us this week. Her discourse on encouraging women to wear to BBQ scented body oil is nothing short of amazing. Her belief is that women will bag that next husband by smelling like cured meats. Hmmmmmm? She also ponders her boyfriends wish to have her dress up like a slutty super hero for Halloween. Sunshine totally supports this costume idea. And, let it be said. Pumpkin is pretty good at sluttin herself up when she wants to. We do answer some listener mail, including Halloween Punch recipes and fun things to do in your tiki bar for the most wicked holiday of the year. We give advice on last minute Halloween costumes, throwing an impromptu party and ask our listeners their thoughts on the current tiki/pop revivial. Pumpkin shares thoughts on turning Better Homes and Gardensclassic recipes into vegan masterpieces. Sunshine goes on and on about bringing jello back to the center of American dessert table.
Sunshine continues to be inspired (though inspire may be the wrong word) jello concoctions of the 40′s, 50′s and 60′s. As the US economy powered through time after WWII, desserts like jello were in every home. We try another version that attempts to combine lime jello, green olives and cherries. After surviving this weeks appetizer, Starshine gives her suggestions for additional Ben and Jerry’s flavors. Including Cincinnati Bow Tie, Dirty Sanchez, Gemini Chocolate Sofa and Schlong and Nuts. We also discuss the hype around Nibiru, a supposed dark matter planet that is hurtling towards Earth and will cause the end of the world approx October 14-16. Luckily the hosts the Zen Tiki Lounge will be enjoying the end times in Las Vegas. Where else would you want to spend your last moments than a glitzy casino with ample smokes, drinks and shenanigans?
Every now and then our podcast takes a slant at inebriated political commentary. This would be one of those shows. But rest assured that only 20% of the show is “deep.” The rest is a load of shenanigans as usual. Kalani and Sunshine discuss 9/11 and the lessons we may not have learned. We also share thoughts on the many pitfalls of organized religion. On the lighter side, everyone but Pumpkin tries a vintage jello cottage cheese salad. Believe it or not, it was pretty tasty……black cherry jello with cottage cheese and cool whip. Wow! And what about luau pool parties when no one gets in the pool? It’s a pool party! Get wet! We also toss in some tips on extreme couponing and what products to be aware of in the frozen isle. Remember, just cause it was cool in the 60′s does not make it OK now.
