7 Wonders of the World

There’s a group called the NewOpenWorldFoundation that has gotten a discussion going about the Seven Wonders of The World.

The current wonders are:
1. The Great Pyramikd of Giza
2. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
3. The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
4. The Statue of Zeus at Olympia
5. The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
6. The Colossus of Rhodes
7. The Pharos of Alexandria

However, NOWF is having a vote at their website that you can take part in to create the new Seven Wonders of The World list.

So go vote! The new list will be announced in Lisben, Portugal on July 7, 2007.

The list being voted on is of big, eye-catching buildings, statues, etc. These are all okay, I guess, but, I’ve created my own list of the 7 Wonders of the World as seen through the eyes of The Finest Kind of Pork:

1. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: C’mon, who doesn’t like these things? Bread, butter, cheese and a hot pan create the simplest, yet yummiest of meals. These work out for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. Even when served cold, a grilled cheese sandwich makes for some good eating.
2. Dental Floss: There is nothing like the feeling of knowing that all of the food you’ve eaten is no longer stuck between your teeth. Especially in that area of your front teeth, where a piece of chawed up grilled cheese sandwich could be hanging on without your knowledge, but it’s location is painfully obvious to anybody who is looking at you.
3. Disc Golf: This is perhaps the greatest game on the planet. Take a disc, or Frisbee as many of you may it as, throw it towards an above-ground target. Count your throws. After navigating 18 targets, or holes, the person with the fewest shots wins. If you haven’t played it, I recommend you give it a try. It’s cheap, it’s fun, it’s a great sport in which you can drink beer while playing.
4. Beer: I don’t even need to comment as this speaks for itself.
5. Hemp Plants: The male plants can be used for making hemp-based products that are far superior to their paper- or cotton-based cousins. Hemp paper is way stronger and more durable than wood paper. Hemp fabric is far tougher than cotton fabric. Hemp rope is far stronger and last longer than regular rope. So, with all that good out of one product, the government made it illegal. Brilliant. Maybe the politicians need to inhale more of the female plants buds to relax a little. It’s all about relaxing. I’m relaxing right now. (And, jonesing for a grilled cheese sandwich.)
6. Pussy: actually, I’ve stopped jonesing for the grilled cheese sandwich at this point.
7. TV: when there’s no pussy around, what better way to enjoy the day than with a little television. And with 8 million channels to pick from, you can always find something on. And the great thing about TV is that it goes great with beer, weed and grilled cheese sandwiches.

As a side note, none of my Top 7 Wonders of the World made it to the list on NewOpenWorldFoundation’s website. I wish there was a place there to put your own submissions, but there is not. And who could blame them? Pussy would beat the Eiffel Tower and Stonehenge hands down!
