In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Dirtman, of course. I prefer to eat clam chowdah while sitting at the dinner table. And bring on some hot fresh dinner rolls and a good quality cold beer to go with it. Perfect dinner on a cold, snowy/rainy winter day.

… and going from "flat towing" to "chowda" is right on par for a "Dirtman" post.

That way we won't offend Dirtman.
