Welcome to the Wednesday OWR Mailbag! Have a question about betting, sports, pop culture or tacos? This week we cover Detroit real estate, Scottish kilts and of course, tacos. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just went to a restaurant and ordered tacos, they served 3 (and were amazing), but I couldn’t finish the last one. Is something wrong with me?
Assuming this was purely a volume issue and the tacos were good portions, then you are probably going to be okay. Granted, I don’t condone leaving good tacos behind, but again, I’m assuming you gave an honest effort and didn’t fill up with guacamole and chips beforehand. However, if this was Taco Bell (question refers to establishment as restaurant, so very unlikely) then nothing less than 6 regular tacos are acceptable. If supreme, then I will allow 5. Again, if you can only eat 5 then don’t order the 6-pack, no need to waste good tacos. #SAVEOURTACOS
I keep seeing advertisements where I can buy a house in Detroit for $500, what’s the downside here?
As a person that has rented his whole life I can appreciate this question. I too have been intrigued by the notion of dropping a car payment for a house in Motown. These houses do exist, but the problem is that there are squatters living in the house and you will have to remove them. There are no Detroit cops going into these neighborhoods. Also, if you are thinking you can go in Charles Bronson vigilante style, think again. You will be stuck by so many needles you will contract HIV twice before you get to the door. The good news is you came to right place. Here’s how to solve your problem: bees. What you need to do is colonize bees around the perimeter; eventually they will surround the house. Everyone, even junkies hate fucking bees. The buzzing alone will drive them mad. That’s it, the bees will drive out the unwanted and you will be left with a shit hole in the middle of a neighborhood that’s only upside is the ease to score drugs. Also, now you have quite the bee problem to deal with…
I’m going to Scotland and am considering wearing a kilt, what’s the protocol?
I’m for anything in moderation and I think the proper kilt etiquette is to wear it respectfully. One time, I bought a sombrero in Cancun, got drunk and danced around it at several bars. I even called it (and told others) it was “the night of the sombrero.” That was not respectful and I should have gotten shot that night – totally deserved one in the ass. Anyway, back to kilts – I am part Scottish and am hoping someday to go to Scotland and also buy/wear a kilt. I plan to go commando and will probably let everyone know after 6 pints. Okay, that’s a lie; it will be after 2 pints…tops.
