Places to Hide the Kale So That Your Wife Will Think You Ate It

Kale Vegetable

    • In a safety deposit box
    • In your old VCR in that slot where the videotape goes in
    • In your cowboy hat
    • In other people’s cowboy hats
    • Under the boardwalk
    • In the pipe organ at church
    • If you live in D.C., at the Smithsonian
    • If you live in Seattle, at the Space Needle
    • Under your children’s beds
    • Sprinkled out on the lawn by the weeds
    • In that hole in the tree where the squirrel lives
    • In the tailpipe of the car belonging to your neighbor who keeps asking to borrow your lawnmower
    • In a cornfield
    • In a kalefield
    • In the ocean
