This isnt exactly "funny" but it is ODD. Pay attention to the ingredients and the story about her son.

I was like, "whoah! did I just hear that?"

Poppies...Poppies...Poppies will put them to sleep.

 

In my clinic, a favorite excuse for a drug test turning up positive for opiods was, "I ate some poppy seed rolls (bagels, cake, etc.) the night before." "Uh, sorry, but I'm not buying that. Obviously you know that eating a sufficient amount of poppy seeds can cause a positive drug test, so you also know that you need to avoid those foods."

 

BTW, poppy seeds do not contain opium per se, but can become coated with it, or absorb some, during harvesting. Several variables influence how much opium remains after processing.

From The New Yorker: We Do Our Own Little Take On Ketchup

 

Quote

The ketchup here at the Stetson is made in-house with freshly diced tomatoes, a pinch of sugar, a touch of paprika, and it’s disgusting. It truly is gross. Nobody likes it, and all the customers secretly wish we just served Heinz ketchup instead.

I used to be horrified by them but no longer. You often meet interesting people and rarely run into total jerks.

Many of the local Basque restaurants have communal tables and have had them for many decades.

One of the happy memories from my DW's and my trip to Germany in 1980 (celebrating my DW's BA in German Literature) was going to non-tourist local restaurants and sharing tables with to the local citizens. Many is the time I wished at least the more casual eating establishments here in the USA would adopt the communal table.

 

Way off topic: By plan, the best souvenir we brought home was born 9 months later.

 

And because this is the food funnies thread:

I eat alone a fair amount when I'm traveling, so I enjoy communal tables, but rarely see them. If I'm somewhere there's a line and people are being seated, I always offer to share my table with anyone who wants to eat more quickly. I did that a few weeks ago when I was on the road, and wound up having a delightful lunch and conversation with a gentleman who was a retired state trooper and who had, amazingly enough, been partnered with a man I grew up with and haven't seen since we left high school.

 

I love how small the world is.

I had two notable examples of that while my restaurant was open. The first was two couples from Germany...one had booked months ahead, the other came off the road because of bad weather and followed our signs. They got talking in the dining room, and it turned out they lived a block apart from each other at home in Germany. Go figure. 

 

The second involved an older couple travelling with their grandson (the boy was keen on cooking, so I let him help me make the fresh pasta for my lobster ravioli and pappardelle. He was thrilled). A younger couple turned out to be from the same state, and then from the same town, and then from the same neighbourhood. Eventually it turned out that the older couple's grandson and younger couple's son were on the same hockey team, and they'd somehow managed never to meet.

 

I remember being surprised that there was junior hockey that far south. IIRC they were from somewhere in one of the Carolinas. I guess that means the NHL Hurricanes are having at least a modest impact.

I know this is religion and politics but its still food and funny

 

Im involved in politics chat and there is a no preaching religion rule.

 

A lady came in and got on mic and immediately started preaching, she was immediately muted off mic.

Me being the wiseguy got on mic and said, 'let us pray...In the name of Ravioli, in the name of pappardele, linguini, angelhair, tortellini, etc let us all wear our Colanders proudly, AMEN"

 

Others then got on mic and named their favorite pastas.

 

Preachy lady left.

So for some reason my neighborhood has a lot of Feral and Stray and Dumped cats.

So I bought a trap. I trapped the first one, a calico female who had just weaned her 2 kittens born under my neighbors deck.

Took her to the Vets to TNR her.

The vets asked for a name...The first thing that came to mind was that David Letterman episode with Tina Turner on it in which she used an appliance called "The TUNA Turner"...

So Calico became TUNA TURNER.

Trapped Tunas BabyDaddy, Named him PIKE Turner.

Trapped their son, hhhhhhmmmm....

Tina and Ike only had 1 child together, Ronald "Ronny" Turner.

He became "pRawny Turner....

Cats and fish names, lol

 I did not write this but most of the words she must have stolen from my mind. The title, "Turkey is Gross,  But Turkey Stock is from God", says it all.
