Fun With Food

What’s on the Menu Tonight?

It can be very confusing choosing a meal in a restaurant these days so here are a few tips to help the uninitiated to work out what is, or rather what isn’t, on offer. If you prefer eating at home you might find my previous post on cooking useful.

Cockie-Leekie - is not made from post coital penises

Wontons - are not heavy

Vol.-au-vent – is not an Italian smart car, yet!

It is however the name of a film about a deaf and dumb guy
who lives with a chicken , Go figure!

Soufflé – is not much help if you want to hide your bald patch.

Vinaigrette – Has nothing to do with wishing you hadn’t drunk so much wine.

Mortadella - Only smells like something that died,

Gazpacho - has nothing to do with military police.

Tagliatelle & Fettucine – have nothing to do with kinky sex.

Unless you know differently...?

Cannelloni – is not a solo dance form

Tzatziki – is unpronouncable unless you’ve been practicing from birth.

If you would like to add your own helpful hints, you know where to leave your comments.

They shoot horses, Don't they?

If my PC was a horse it would be a dead horse. And I have spent the last few days flogging it.

I am pretty sure that the fact that it is currently operating well enough for me to write this post has a lot more to do with my bloodymindedness than anything else. It is no longer using windows as an operating system, it is running on my will power.

I know nothing about computers, technically speaking, and my usual tactic of giving it a hard "paddington"stare has not been of any help whatsoever. I have had to resort to tinkering. It seems to have worked, for now. I don't think it will last though and will someone please tell me what that burning smell is?
