What Is It?

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago on a really hot day.



The stuff is not ice cream, it's thicker and taking too long to melt.

I started thinking of that old SNL skit - I think it was Bill Murray and Billy Crystal - they'd walk up to things and one would say "what the hell is that?" and the other would respond "I don't know but don't touch it" and this would go on for a bit and then they'd move on
Don't know why but it was hilarious.

What can I say. It's all I got.

Well...

...to me, it looks like what was left of the Wicked Witch of West after Dorothy threw a bucket of water on her.

"I'm melting...melting...what a world, what a world."

X ya!

I'm pretty sure it's the new Starbucks $10.00 banana frufru, icy, no dairy, bio-degradable cup, melty fizzy, no whip, beverage. All gone terribly wrong.

Raven said...

Beats me... Will you tell us the answer eventually or is it one of those questions that has no answer. Cool shot.

Sylvia K said...

Yep, beats me, too! But it is a colorful shot!

Jay said...

You didn't stick your finger in it and taste it?

don't wanna know

It looks to me like one of the crazier Steelers fans finally got to Jeff Reed with a ray gun of some sort. You can’t expect to miss more than one field goal in a game and be safe.

It is the remnants of the alien landing. Don't touch it!


So how did the medical thing go?

Arkansas Patti said...

No clue. Waiting for the answer.

Hilary said...

Somebody ran over Pacman!

Matt-Man said...

Looks like my typical morning discharge due to my chronic gonorrhea. Just sayin'. Cheers Di!!

Jacob said...

Someone may have been trying to fry a really big egg...

I wouldn't eat it, though.

Send it to Mitch McConnell with a note saying your returning his brain.

I'd suit up before attempting to clean that up, looks bio-hazardous for sure.

Nessa said...

It looks like it is full of radio active material. Where is Superman when you need him?

HACK-TOOOEY

Sorry something was caught in my throat

Daryl said...

I am guessing it was a paint balloon? Or not. And you made me laugh about Billy and Crazy Bill and that routine.

Anndi said...

First, Bwahahahahahaha PACMAN!!

Second, Jeff has a thing about bananas...

Um... I'd guess a giant peep? I know we're months past Easter but that's how long it takes for that stuff to go bad... well, worse really.

Cherie said...

At first glance it looked like someone tried to fry an egg on the pavement. When I clicked on the picture, the yellow had more of a "paint" look to me. So tell us, what the hell was it?! :)

It looks like what's left of a water balloon to me? Do you know what it is? :)

Reb said...

Looks like paint...the oil is leeching from the colour as it dries in the sun.

Akelamalu said...

Looks like an egg frying on a road to me. What are those bits nearby - the remnant of a balloon?

Micky-T said...

DON'T YOU DARE......
....TOUCH IT!!!!!!!

Grayquill said...

Is this a test? I always hated tests. I'm feeling like I'm back in school. My vote is your husband ran over the mustard jar and he is no girly man - that's why he didn't clean it up. Leave it be the crows will get it.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Painting with food, Jackson Pollock style?

Linda said...

My first thought was you were trying to fry an egg on the sidewalk as several others above mentioned. My second thought was that it looked suspiciously like the allergy residue that has been coming out of my nose lately. My third thought was - I have NO idea what that is!

Dianne said...

I LOVED EVERYONE'S GUESSES!!!

I can't tell you what it is. What you're seeing is what was there. Being closer to it didn't make it any more identifiable.

I love a good mystery.

thanks everyone

Dianne, I am working my way up to your latest post. I haven't read it but have read the two following and this one.
This will give me a reprieve and I'll tell you about the dog who came to school.
That was a very pretty dog, all of us kids (all seven or eight in that one room school house) petted it. The teacher said be careful as the dog looked a little scruffy.
But this dog was so cheerful and wanted some loving that us kids could give him or her. And it did love us in return for the lunch scraps we gave it.
Just about time for the end of noon recess, which was eat and then go outside and play tag or any-I-over, the dog decided it to poop.
And poop and poop that dog did. His (ladies don't have these problems do they) poop was bright yellow, very similar to your puddle only so much more.
The entire poopy mess there in the school yard was yellow. Mustard yellow.
Now kids like to give their pets enduring names. To this day those of us who get together to relate old times with who ever will gather with us call this dog "The Mustard Dog."
Mustard Dog would be very old by now, but since this pile is smaller, perhaps Mustard Dog still lives and has mossied up there to New Jersey.

Ahhhh Jim!!!
Long Live Mustard Dog!
