The Conspiracy Behind Margarita Popsicles


The conspiracy behind the margarita popsicle is the book Voodoo Histories: The Role of the Conspiracy Theory in Shaping Modern History. And it will only be behind the popsicle if you physically put the book behind it. Gotcha. Hey, it’s the millionth straight day of 100+ degree heat here in Texas and my mind just might be playin tricks on me. Seriously though, conspiracies are to fiction, especially thriller fiction, as popsicle sticks are to popsicles. It’s the conspiracy that props up alot of fiction out there. Think Brad Thor, some Stephen King, or anything by Dan Brown. In Voodoo Histories, David Aaronovitch (his last name’s a conspiracy to wear out our “a” key, you know with the two “a”s together like that!) talks about the big daddies of the conspiracy universe – JFK, the moon landing, the Catholic Church’s Jesus cover up, etc. Like a spider, he draws readers into the web of half-truths and rumors behind each conspiracy and then tears each one apart. Ummm, what better way to cool off raging conspiracy theories than with a little research and common sense.

And speaking of cooling off, how about a Margarita popsicle on this Thirsty Thursday? Here’s the recipe. Enjoy and let me know how they taste. Oh, and remember, lets keep these adult treats out of the kids’ reach, okay? Last thing we want is our 7 year old stumbling around the house like Amy Winehouse on tour (God rest her soul).
