Operation Hot Smother

Chickens get something disgusting called scaly leg mites, and new gray Audie Cornish Hen has them. It’s appalling and I feel awful for not having synthesized some indicators earlier, so I am soothing myself by channeling Arrested-ly Development-al absurdity. Please join me in remembering the glorious Operation Hot Mother!

Here you see two steps of the treatment (not including grossness, I promise).


Bill is holding her, and I am using a toothbrush to gently scrub her little feet in some warm Dr. Bronner’sy water.


Now, Bill is holding her and I am putting her legs one by one into a 2009 Yankee Stadium commemorative cup full of safflower oil, because that’s how you smother the mites. (Next: lots of Vaseline!)

We’ll keep the toothbrush in the guest bathroom in case you forget yours.

  1. Absolute cleanliness is Godliness! Who else but God gave man Love that can spark mere dust to life! Poetry, uniting All-One! All brave! All life! Who
    else but God! “Listen Children Eternal Father Eternally One!”
    Einstein, 1939, after Nazis & Commies united, proposed spacebombs that
    destroy all, unless we finally teach the Moral ABC’s the real Rabbi Hillel
    taught Jesus to unite all in All-One-God-Faith. As teach astronomers
    Abraham-Israel-Moses-Buddha-Hillel-Jesus-Spinoza-Paine-Sagan & Mohammed, inspired every 76 years, 6000 years by the Messenger of God’s Law, the sign of the Messiah, Halley’s Comet: “WE’RE ALL ONE OR NONE!”

    Get well, little new gray Audie Cornish. Then thank crazy Dr. Bronner.


  2. I saw the content of this before I saw who posted it, and just for a second thought I’d been invaded by a fundamentalist-bot! Bless him and his wonderful gentle cleansers.
