We’re having a holiday open house at the office today, and we all brought cookies and other sweets. I thought it would be fun and unique to bring brandy balls. So I made them last night and brought them in this morning, and placed them on the table with a sign.

Bart's Brandy Balls

But Boss Lady’s husband (Elliott, aka the inimitable HammHawk) had the same idea. He made bourbon balls.

And much to my chagrin, his balls are bigger than mine.

How very humiliating.

Update: By day’s end, the general conclusion seems to be that although Elliott’s balls are bigger, mine are more potent.

    I just had to chime in. Hehehehehehehehe!!! They look chocolate to me.

  7. Recent events seem to confirm the potency thing…

  8. Damn, this is the most discussion anything about me has ever generated, and all I did was bring my balls to a party. You may be the first person to ever call me “inimitable” but if you’d used bourbon, then I might have accused you of imitating me. That’d be a real first.

    Cheers to you and your balls. They were indeed delicious.

  9. a a

    potent and potable too?

  10. […] I was too far gone the last couple days to actually bring a dish. I was going to bring my famous brandy balls. Actually I meant to bring them Monday, for my unit’s day-long open house, but I missed that […]
