 The husband-proof grocery list 

 

Here.

 

 It's not just husbands who need a grocery list such as this. I speak from experience.

I always made lists but then I'd get a call from The Mister who said he couldn't read my (printed) handwriting.

That's a hoot.  I would add one thing.  I would includes a drawing of what two looks like II and what 4 looks like IIII so that when I ask for 2 smoked picnic shoulder as I did last week, he doesn't come home with four.

That still wouldn't work with my son-in-law. His M.O. is to just shrug and fill the cart with stuff he likes (and they can't afford) and then say "I couldn't find the things that were on the list."

Amusing, but certainly not new. Here is one by the artist Michelangelo (1475-1564) for his semi-literate servant.

How to resist a band that writes lines like "say I'm the only bee in your bonnet"?

 

Or "Triangle man, Triangle man/Triangle man hates particle man/They have a fight, Triangle wins/Triangle man"

 

Or "Can't shake the devil's hand and say you're only kidding"

 

Here's what they look (and sound) like: NPR Tiny Desk Concert   At the Kennedy Center

I think this is legitimate for our thread, since it addresses at least the "drink" side of food and drink...

Side salad

 

 

 

Complete with terrible looking slices of styromate and brown lettuce. I guess it's funny in a way, but not if you're the paying customer who receives this pathetic excuse for a salad. Wish they had said where it was from so people would know to eat somewhere else. :) Or maybe they just concocted it for amusement?
