Deer Hunter?? I am still half asleep and laughing at the topic so will come back with another one after some coffee.

I decide to check back before turning off the computer, smug in the belief that I was being obscure and BINGO! :shock:

Tell me you knew that, waterdogs, and you didn't just google... :laugh:

No Google. My brother actually made them (at least once). And made me eat them (once). This is a hard topic though...I'd love to have a comeback -- but am drawing a blank!! Good for you for coming up with it.

But isn't Monty Python a great guess for anything in this vein!?

Peanut butter and ground beef.

Ok, this is kind of cheating since it was only in the movie BECAUSE it was so odd. But you can eat it here in Missouri. They say at the restaurant it was also in an old TV show too so maybe that could also count.

Chicken mole made with a Cadbury's Fruit and Nut Bar.

(This is pretty obscure.  You get to assign yourself extra points for this.)

"Getting it Right"

how about 'one long piece of spagetti' - this should be an easy one.

fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Silence of the Lambs...

This one is a little obscure but should be readily recognizable for anyone that has seen the movie in question.

eel soup, pickled eels, eels, eels, eels...

"Under the dusty almond trees, ... stalls were set up which sold banana liquor, rolls, blood puddings, chopped fried meat, meat pies, sausage, yucca breads, crullers, buns, corn breads, puff pastes, longanizas, tripes, coconut nougats, rum toddies, along with all sorts of trifles, gewgaws, trinkets, and knickknacks, and cockfights and lottery tickets."

-- Gabriel Garcia Marquez, 1962 "Big Mama's Funeral"

I give you a ritz cracker and chopped liver

The Godfather

I give you - no turkey, a beheaded duck and soap.

A Christmas Story!!!

"Beans and motherfuckers" and a John Wayne bar.

This whole love/hate thing would be a lot easier if it was just hate.

Bring me your finest food, stuffed with your second finest!
