The other day I was listening to some old eight-track tapes when I came upon one by Jerry Clower, where Jerry does a routine about biscuits. Jerry says the absence of homemade biscuits at the American breakfast table is one reason the divorce rate is going up.
"Saddest sound in this world," Jerry said, "is the sound of them little canned biscuits being popped open early evah mawnin' in evah house in the neighborhood." Jerry goes, "Whop, whop, whop" as an illustration. It's enough to make a grown man cry.
