Sublime - Seed [youtube.com]

Well, not really it turns out. Pardon my language if that word offended you - it's just so apropos for this post. There is a belief/myth/whatever that if you eat enough poppy seed muffins/bagels or whatever, you could fail a drug test that may be required by a current or potential employer. I fortunately have never been the object of this finding, but it turns out [according to my research and the help of Snopes [snopes.com]] it is! Now, One might be able to state a case and disclose that he/she did consume poppy seed when said test is be administered, but would your employer buy it? Cheers.

Um. . . what word are you saying could be offensive? Poppycock? Lol.
Great shot Mike. SO nice to see you (as always). My employer would totally buy it because well. . . I don't do drugs and they [i]know[/i] that beyond a shadow of a doubt. Sometimes I wish I could though. I am all out of vices. Damn.
