Well, Did You?
(with comments)

A sign photographed by Danny Schmidt.

Austin, TX - Open Ears Concert series at St Andrews Church in north Austin. My kind of church … long on tamales, short on faith.

    "Did you pay for your tamales?"

    Yes, the next morning.

    Me too, Mean Jean! I've said it before, but it bears repeating: If they made a tamale-scented car air freshener, my car would smell like tamales in perpetuity.

    I would J-Walk, I would. I suppose I could just hang a greasy tamale corn husk from my rear view, but somehow that just seems wrong.

    I'm tellin' ya, there's a fortune just waiting to made in the manufacture and distribution of tamale-scented air fresheners.

    Well, at least the market for tamale air fresheners isn't over-saturated.


    And THIS is certainly good news:

    I also did some market research, and found this:

    I can't overemphasize how much I love tamales. I think I could happily subsist on a diet of nothing but tamales, flan, and cheesecake. If they made a tamale-scented air-freshener for your car, I would buy it! Seriously! - Greg

    I conclude that there's a pent-up demand for such a product. We need to find some investors. This could be big. Really big. Let's keep it on hush for now, OK?

    Maybe tamales are the next bacon.

    The new bacon? Hmmmm... that's not a bad idea. I need to start a tamale category. In fact, I just did!

    It is common for the cleaning lady in some parts of the country to bring a basket of tamales one morning a week and sell them on the honor system. I usually put in a couple of bucks extra to cover those who eat tamales without paying.
