It's the blonde joke come to life.

And she gets the last laugh. On social media, I saw Popeye's Chicken, the restaurant chain, is giving her $10,000 worth of Popeye's chicken over the next year.:B

I did this this morning, on my way back from taking the dog to the groomer. One should never grocery shop before breakfast.

Honestly, I'm 60 years old and the first thing to pop into my head was chicken, too.  I'm not young, just fat!

 

 

She answered quite sensibly. It was a highly ambiguous, badly written question.

As a street art fan I have a problem with the "addition" though cute - oh well I am always contrary.

I'm currently reading Monisha Bharadwaj's The Indian Cooking Course.  In her discussion of karahis (the Indian cooking vessel) Bharadwaj describes having seen karahis that can "hold 5-6 people".  I believe she means this literally.

If that is somebody's idea of progress, Lord help us all! If it was something that could actually print out and make the different kinds of cheeses I would put my order in tomorrow for two of them

That's a gag gift box.

"There is no sincerer love than the love of food."  -George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, Act 1

 

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

She earns $10 Million dollars every year. In addition, she raises hundreds thousands of $$$$ for children's causes.

Based on personal experience, I'm not sure if this is funny, or tragic, or both!-

 "Our special today is Olive Oil Poached Halibut on a Bed of Tagliatelle with an Orange-Arugula Salad." "That sounds good, I'll have the special." "I'm so sorry sir, but we're out of the special." "But if it's special, and you just opened, why did you offer me the special?"

I fear this will be behind a paywall for non-subscribers, but I recommend this funny article by J.J. Goode in today's Washington Post:  As a cookbook writer, I just knew my children would be good eaters. Then they were born.

 

It's a funny essay about high expectations and low capitulation. Here's a small sample:

Quote

At some point, his rejection of my cooking became so inexorable that I considered skipping the ceremony of serving him food altogether. If I instead removed the plate from the microwave and dumped its contents directly into the trash, then maybe my wife and I could get him to bed 15 minutes earlier.
