No, this isn’t going to be a picture of a Rice president sitting uncomfortably atop a horse on Rice Night at the rodeo (although I do have several–it’s its own genre). I hope this doesn’t disappoint too many people.
Instead I’m about to discuss a spoon, quite a glorious one. Check this out:
That’s a pretty good image, really. Better than you have any right to expect from a commemorative spoon. My problem is I can’t remember anything about it, including where we got it. I have a dim, lingering sense that someone walked in with it, maybe even Greg Marshall, who has walked in with more than a few oddities over the years. Anyway, if it was you, let me know.
The cowboy, by the way, is down at the other end and bears no likeness to any Rice Night photograph I’ve ever seen:
Why a cowboy on a Rice spoon? I suppose it’s just a Texas thing. You know how that goes.
