A Bucket of Gruel was the topic we all had to digest, and for some reason the random lunacy generator in my head saw that as an opportunity to lampoon those eBay listings for haunted stuff.
For sale: One lightly used bucket of gruel. My children don't appreciate the healing properties of my fine millet and honey recipe, so I'm selling it along with their video games to teach them a lesson.
What makes this bucket of gruel so special is that after my son vomited in it last Thursday, the spirit of a Mayan priest emerged from the swirling chowder and summoned a delightful goblin who cleaned our house top to bottom before playing many amusing tricks on us.
Don't miss out on this one of a kind delicacy with bonus goblin! Local pickup only.
