“Why did the man dump ground beef on his head?"/"He wanted a meatier shower.”

"Meteor shower” sounds like “meatier shower.” “That looks like a meatier shower” was printed in a 1996 novel. “WHY DID KIBO PUT LOW QUALITY GROUND BEEF IN HIS SHOWER HEAD? HE WANTED TO HAVE A MEATIER SHOWER (METEOR SHOWER)” was posted on the newsgroup alt.religion.kibology on December 15, 2001. “Why did the man dump ground beef on his head? he wanted a MEATIER SHOWER!” was posted on Twitter on January 6, 2011.

“You can have seen a meteor shower, but you have never seen a shower ‘meatier’ than this” is a line from the popular animated movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009).


Wikipedia: Meteor shower
A meteor shower is a celestial event in which a number of meteors are observed to radiate, or originate, from one point in the night sky. These meteors are caused by streams of cosmic debris called meteoroids entering Earth’s atmosphere at extremely high speeds on parallel trajectories. Most meteors are smaller than a grain of sand, so almost all of them disintegrate and never hit the Earth’s surface. Intense or unusual meteor showers are known as meteor outbursts and meteor storms, which may produce greater than 1000 meteors an hour. The Meteor Data Centre lists about 600 suspected meteor showers of which about 100 are well established.

Thank you, Saint Patrick. Okay, everyone, you’re not going to believe this one, but I’m standing in the middle of a burger rain. You can have seen a meteor shower, but you have never seen a shower “meatier” than this. For a town stuck eating sardines, this is totally manna from heaven.

The Amazingly Lame Joke of the Day
Sunday, August 27, 2017
A friend called me last night, quite confused, to say a couple of sausages hit him on the head on the way home from the pub.

“That’s nothing!” I replied. “I got hit by four steaks, two pork chops and a leg of lamb.”

“What could it be?” he asked.

“I’m not sure, but mine was definitely a meatier shower!”
