Salmonella Anyone?

Today I was behind an SUV at an offramp in Redmond. There was a homeless man at the light asking for food or money. The man in front of me rolled down his window and handed the man a jar of mayonnaise. The homeless man graciously accepted. I realize beggars can't be choosers but who gives someone a jar of mayonnaise?

Perhaps the man in the SUV was making a literary reference. For example, the last word of Brautigan's Trout Fishing in America is mayonnaise. Or, the apparent panhandler could have been an agent for Homeland Security and the guy in the SUV was giving him a list of apartments to bug. Finding an apartment in Issaquah can be a real challenge though, particularly if you don't have the address and the residents won't answer their phone and give you directions. Without directions or address, a searcher can only come within a few blocks of the place if they have the general location. And, how are you Mr. Wilson?
