'Cause I Loooooove Mudslides

Metta World Peace says he seriously considered retiring from the NBA when he was dropped from the Lakers ... because he REEALLLY wanted to drink mudslides on a beach in Florida.

Mudslides are, in fact, delicious.

"I was thinking about just going down to like Destin, Florida ... 'which is one of the best beaches in America that's not too expensive to travel to," Metta says.

"So I was thinking about going to Destin, Florida or maybe going to Sarasota and just enjoying the beach. Sitting back ... mudslides. I loooove some mudslides."

So, why didn't he hang 'em up? 33-year-old Metta says he still has 3-5 good years left in the league ... and he's really excited to play with the New York Knicks.

Still, Metta says he enjoyed playing in L.A. -- and LOVED his teammates -- and expects the Lakers to play in the finals next year ... against the Knicks, of course.

Mudslides are one thing, what do you feel about the real "Dirt DrinK"?
DIrt Drink Prep:
Green Gatorade - four ounces
Ammonia (will not hurt you) - one ounce
Orange Juice - two to three ounces

Mix three above ingredients well
and then serve with fish shaped ice
in a tall clear glass.

This drink will fool those roadworkers (tarhill) friends, and impress those who like to pee.
The ammonia in the drink will cause a better
ability to pee.

Other recipies:

Tea - eight ounces
Ammonia - two tablespoons

Mix well, serve with fish shaped ice
and taste is comparable to licorice
from Austrailia mate. You try, you will enjoy.
