Food jokes - list

From Pulp Fiction:

Three tomatoes are walking down the street -- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and squishes him... and says, "Ketchup."

Breakroom Freezer

There was an episode of Homicide that had a subplot about the "Lunch Bandit." Someone from the Homicide unit was stealing food from the breakroom fridge.

Ebola: Do you think it will change how we dine out?

It might make cannibals a little bit more selective in their dining choices. :)

How to prepare Prime brisket

Watch the "BBQ with Franklin" Youtube videos on brisket. I can't post a link from work, but they are easy to find via google or youtube.

When you're at the museum, make sure you check out this exhibit:

Not many gripes about Costco . Is it worth it for one ?

You can also get free refills of their lens cleaner at the Optical department. I found out last week that the refills are self service.

Spelling & grammar errors on menus

That was supposed to say "Howard County". I made a typo while posting about a typo.

Spelling & grammar errors on menus

Not on a menu, but there's a local liquor store that's open on Sundays (which is rare where I live.) They can only sell beer and wine on Sundays and there is a handwritten sign explaining this. Part of it says, "The closest place to by liquor on Sundays is Howard Coundy."

Also, I recently saw a food truck at a festival. They had hot dogs on the menu and it cost, "$1 extra for cheese or chill."

Call me an old fashion prude, but I don't think this is appropriate. "Mom Bakes Vagina Cookies For 2nd Graders"

I wonder if she's in a military family - maybe she's married to Colonel Angus.

Maybe it was a misunderstanding. She might have been asked to bring a Carvel "Cookie Puss" ice cream cake to the class and got mixed up.

Maybe we're not getting the hole story here.

Fed-up chef posts angry signs telling hard-to-please customers to stay away

Reminds me of the scene in Treme when David Chang decides to put pork in every dish.

Narrowly averted checkout line scam?

And when he goes to the checkout line, he has to go back, and to the left, back, and to the left, back, and to the left...

If it was "The Dude" he would have been buying half and half.

Guiltiest Guilty Pleasures

Powdered parmesean cheese in a can. I don't care what anyone says, it tastes fine to me on pizza, Italian food and salads.

IKEA, a recent visit to their marketplace

I was at IKEA last night and was happy to discover that Daim bars are back! Daim is like Heath or Skor, but much better. They stopped selling them at IKEA (or maybe just my local one stopped) a couple of years ago, and I could only get them when my sister in law brought them back from Denmark. I bought two bags last night and I'm considering going back for a few more (in case they stop selling them again.)

Guiltiest Guilty Pleasures

Grilled cheese sandwiches, made with white bread, American cheese and Country Crock (spread on the outside of the bread - works better than butter for grilled cheese.)

Two L.A. Hounds for Five Days. Food and Sights Itinerary?

The one I posted about is in DC, right by Verizon Center. Looks like the one at Mark Center also has the raw bar happy hour.

Why You Should Never, Ever Go to a Food Festival

I like going to them (and wine festivals) when my band gets paid to play them. We usually don't get many (if any) free samples, but we get paid well to play for an hour. I think we're doing Taste of Bethesda (Maryland) this year.

Two L.A. Hounds for Five Days. Food and Sights Itinerary?

I think so.I work closer to Clyde's than OEG. When I want oysters after work, that's usually where I go.

Clyde's in Gallery Place has the same happy hour specials.

Best crab cakes in or near Hyattsville, MD?

Franklin's in Hyattsville has crab cakes on their menu. I've never had them there (not a big fan of crab cakes) but my girlfriend has and thinks they're great.

Try Bass Pro shops. If you're near Manassas, Dizzy Pig probably has oak chunks for sale.

Worst thing you ate before working-out.

I once drank a lot of bourbon the night before a boxing class. My partner (one of the instructors) told me at one point, "Stop blowing that alcohol breath in my face!" I felt kind of embarrased and worried that he thought that I came to class drunk. As hungover as I as, I still go though the whole class. In fact, the intense workout probably made me sweat a lot of the bad stuff out.
