What’s Really in a Can of Whoopass?

Saturday night a few of us went to dinner at the new Knox-Henderson restaurant Horne & Dekker, where the tables centerpieces are a trio of house-labeled peas, carrots, and tomatoes. Kitschy. And useful: servers use the cans to serve the hot pizza pies. After dinner, on the way out the door, I spotted a different kind of can on a serving cart on the patio. A can of Whoopass. I blame the desserts for what happened then: the sugar high from a slice of coconut cream pie, peaches with caramel sauce and ice cream, and peanut butter buckeyes impaired my judgment, and I slipped this can of Whoopass in my purse. And then I couldn’t stop wondering, “What is really in a can of quality Whoopass?” We’re going to find out. But first, I want you to guess. It’s heavy. And it’s kind of sloshy but not too sloshy, not like peas or carrots.

    So do you normally walk out of a restaurant with something like salt shakers or maybe a bottle of tabasco? Or maybe leave a hotel with a robe?

    Did you get the managers blessing to lift that can of Whoopass or is someone from Horne & Dekker really going to show you what whoopass is all about? Just wondering.

    Speaking of theives, does Horne and Dekker have permission to use my “kick ass” likeness on their cans of Whoopass?

    Actually think it’s pretty offensive that you stole from a restaurant and then pimped your theft on D’s blog for hits.
