My GF actually sent me that one, because it made a nice intersection with my existing interest in rocketry and space exploration. My best friend since childhood is actually in aerospace, and played a significant role in the current OSIRIS-REx mission.

Well, it's not a successful mission until they've actually taken their samples and brought 'em back to earth. But yeah, getting there is - as they say - half the fun. Or the stress, if you're in the telemetry, navigation and guidance systems end of things (he is).

I dunno, I've changed enough diapers to believe that a filter cartridge might just be an excellent idea. :P

Balaclava is a renowned British beverage commemorating the Crimean War Battle of Balaclava.  Or rather one of two different beverages commemorating the Crimean War Battle of Balaclava.  More than once I have enjoyed balaclava for dessert.  When I don't have to get up the next day.

 

In truth given the choice following my dinner I would prefer a well made balaclava to any baklava.  Thin Red Line and all of that.

Sherman's Lagoon had one of my favorite food-related strips, which alas I can't find online.

 

Sherman asks Ernest (IIRC), "Have you ever eaten something you haven't tasted in years, and it just brings back all kinds of memories you've forgotten?"
Ernest: "It's a well-known phenomenon. In fact the great French novelist, Marcel Proust, wrote a whole series of novels about it."
Sherman, incredulous: "Boogers?"

WOW!  John would love that......especially if there were a leatherman incorporated as well.

It's half an hour long, but the first seven of so minutes are definitely food related and there are sporadic references thereafter. Michael Crawford as Frank Spencer, one of British comedy's classics. Pure slapstick.

NB. He never used stuntmen. All his stunts he did himself.

This is only marginally food-related but the number of puns in this LA Times report entertained me: CHP nabs motorist who hatched plan to avoid tolls using sticker from chicken wing package

 

Quote

A motorist ran afoul of the law this week when he used a sticker from a pound of teriyaki chicken wings he had purchased at Safeway to cover his license plate to avoid paying a freeway toll in Marin County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The tricky move was enough to ruffle some feathers at the CHP, which posted photos of the sticker on the license plate to its Facebook page, saying the incident falls in the “we couldn’t even make this up” category.
