The Gingerbread Patriots on Fish Sticks
By Jessica Cassyle Carr
Where do the Gingerbread Patriots stand on the fish stick issue?
John--I guess I wasn't aware that there was an "issue" so I haven't had time to form an opinion.
Megan--They would be nothing more than mush if stood on.
Jeshua--In the kitchen usually. Then I mash them between my toes and gum them with my mouth.
What are the pros and cons of fish in stick form?
John--Pros: When it looks like a stick it's easier to eat, I guess. Cons: "Fish sticks."
Megan--Great for meals on the run.
Ed--Pro: Cod eat it while driving. Con: Cod-n't really make a meal of them. (Those were puns.)
What do people need to know about fish sticks?
John--The facts. Like don't think that sucking on a half-thawed fish stick for nourishment is a good idea. No matter how tasty fishsicles sound, it will cause you nothing but pain.
Megan--They make their presence known ... for at least a day or two.
Jeshua--People need to know just to be careful. They will coldcock you. They'll getcha goin' one way and then bam.
Ed--They are fish in the shape of sticks, not sticks stolen from fish.
How do fish sticks relate to your lives on a macro level?
John--Just knowing that space-age food in a stick form is already here reassures us that this world is aimed at great things. This fish stick-induced optimism lubricates the machine that is Gingerbread Patriots.
Ed--I feel that fish sticks give me perspective: Nobody has ever taken me from my home, shaped my flesh rectangular-like, fried me up and made a delicious microwavable treat of me ... sometimes I take that for granted.
