It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

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

why am I always at the bottom and why is everything so high?

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.

Baby's First Bacon

 

I wonder if he's related to Homer Simpson. :)

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.

Here is another one from stand-up comedian, Jim Gaffigan. It is looonng, almost 90 minutes, but if you are Obsessed about food, like me, you might enjoy it. It's recorded from a live performance in Boston.

 

He rags hard on Southern food, including grits, which I love as a G.R.I.T.S lady, but I have a sense of humor about it. He also rags on: kale, cottage cheese, pita and wraps, gluten-free, Whole Foods, seafood (blasphemy, but still funny, at least to me), Kobe beef, and desserts in China (sorry huiray and liuzhou), including the Americanized fortune cookies.

 

Also bars (long rant): "Female bartenders always seem like they're a little bit tougher than they need to be. I don't want to describe them as bitchy, because that would describe them perfectly."

 

Other quotes yours truly liked:

 

"Hotdogs are like strippers. No one wants to hear the backstory." This was in reference to ingredients in said sausages.

 

"I have five kids. I used to have more, but I ate them." This guy is crazy, but funny to me. :smile:

 

 

 

 

Edit: second time around watching it, I caught my very favorite quote from his routine, which I had noted in my feeble mind, then promptly forgot.

 

"No one really wants fruit. It's too much work with fruit, right? You gotta waaash it; you gotta peel off that sticker Al Qaeda put on there?" (Personally, I love fruit, but again, have a sense of humor about it.)

 

I despise those stickers, and I think he has an angle with Al Qaeda! :laugh:
