I suppose this could spawn a retro "Horns and Hardhats"... :wink:

The Frog and Durian

"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."

Oh, these are too funny. I'm sure many of you have heard of Dirty Dick's Crab House and Awful Arthur's on the Outer Banks of North Carolina? They also have two gourmet nut shops: Dog Nutz and Try My Nuts. I swear. I've actually grown addicted to Try My Nuts's Nuts on Fire.

Anyway, my entries:

Botulism Bistro

Pizza Plague-- the new pizza chain that's spreading fast

The Petri Dish-- it'll grow on you

The Smoking Gun Cafe-- you shoot it, we serve it

Pappy's Goiter House

Chuck's Abattoir & Deli

Hair of the Dog Wine Bar

Frenchie's Laundry and Curry Hut

Mystery Meat BBQ Shack

Burgers n' Boils

Clappy's Public House

The Flatulent Flagon Alehouse

Soggy Bottoms Saloon

*sigh* My apologies.
