Food funnies


Recommended Posts

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.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

That is a funny one!  Here's the comic in question.

Funny that the company in question apologized to her, but didn't suggest she could start using the original name again. Is that a non-apology? 9_9

Yep, a non-apology . . . . . otherwise known as good BS PR - all is not what the normal citizen in the street thinks!

 

But, those "Beaver Tails" AKA Canadian Semiaquatic Rodent Posterior Donuts, are pretty much equivalent to our "Vetkoek" in South Africa, except they are made flat whereas our ones are similar to a burger bun. Ours are served with cinnamon and sugar or cut open and served with a curry mince filling. Good street food!

Some time ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.

A young journalist was interviewing a grizzled old war vet.

 

After a few basic questions, the journo gingerly asked, “Did you ever kill anyone?”.

 

The old man smiled and in a soft voice replied, “Probably, . . . . I was the cook.”

On the "mildly sarcastic" side of food funnies, a local chef Instragrammed his daily special recently. It was an artisan grilled cheese sandwich, smothered in cheese sauce, browned under the salamander, then topped with crispy Southern-fried chicken skin as a garnish.

 

He hashtagged it with #dietfood and #beachbody. :P
