How spicy do you like your Korean food?

 

Order here

 

Do not open if easily offended by profanity.

 

(That'll get everyone opening it!)

 

This reminds me of Allie Brosh's (Hyperbole and a Half) pain scale. Yes, I know it's not blatantly food-related, but it's close enough. Just think of it as also relating to Scoville units.

Here is a salutary, food-related warning on why not to rely on computer translations.

Thought you might enjoy these Gluten Free Art.

That is the first contribution here which really tickled me. Including my own.

Thanks to you Alex, I have wasted many hours reading "The Awkward Yeti" and also "Barney and Clyde" I found on the same site. I appreciate you turning us all on to them.

 

You're welcome, TftC. I apologize for the delayed reply. One of the folks behind Barney & Clyde is Gene Weingarten, of the Washington Post, who's one of my favorite writers. (One of my signature lines comes from one of his columns.)

 

He doesn't write all that often about food, although a recent column touched on both Rice Krispies and butter, and this Barney & Clyde is sort of peripherally related. Here's a page with links to his Sunday columns for the past year and his Tuesday ones for the past eight months. It also has links to his longer articles, two of which (this one and this one) won Pulitzer prizes.

Wow!

 

Gene deserves his Pulitzers. What a writer, that many of us may aspire to be. I'll be keeping an eye peeled for his work.

 

Thanks again.

You're welcome. Did you also read his feature story about The Great Zucchini ("The Peekaboo Paradox")? It's a good one.

Okay, this was hilarious :laugh:, but many of them looked like staged jokes, at least to a person who is unfamiliar with the German language and culture, for the most part.

 

I kept craning my head to try to seem something else with the photo of the buttocks with ears, and was stymied until I read the comments: 

Katharina Fösel · 

There's a german idiom that's "Arsch mit Ohren" ( "ass with ears"), which is a colloquial insult term for an annoying, stupid, awful person smile emoticon
This article didn't really well in explaining or translating the texts.
 
 
I'm sure many would make better sense with less ignorance on my part, but still a riot. Thanks liuzhou.

The link was sent to me by a German friend (via Facebook). She thought it accurate and amusing.
