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."

 The husband-proof grocery list 

 

Here.

 

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

 

 

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"?

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

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?

Not really a joke, just something that made me chuckle.

 

I somehow ended up an email list from "Kitchn." Yesterday's lead item was a recipe for "3-Ingredient Garlicky Potatoes," a recipe that had 6 ingredients. I learned the difference between the quantities of three and six 58 years ago.

Can't figure out how to do it but today's (19 November 2017) comic Pickles by Brian Crane was snort out loud funny.........

His wife wore the dress she cooked bacon in to church and he loved it when she smelled like a pig.
