Comment of the Day
Today Joanna O'Leary shared her top five movie quotes about food, and EOW Nation chimed in with more. Commenter FattyFatBastard had lots of them, and he didn't attribute:
Just one little mint, monsieur? They are wafer-thin.
Heineken? F*** that sh**! Pabst Blue Ribbon!
I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded: dead.
"Well let me tell you something now, Johnny. Last Thursday, I turned 95 years old. And I never exercised a day in my life. Every morning, I wake up, and I smoke a cigarette. And then I eat five strips of bacon. And for lunch, I eat a bacon sandwich. And for a midday snack?" "Bacon?" "Bacon! A whole damn plate! And I usually drink my dinner."
Keziah: No thanks, I'm a fruitarian.
Max: I didn't realize that.
William: And, ahm: what exactly is a fruitarian?
Keziah: We believe that fruits and vegetables have feeling so we think cooking is cruel. We only eat things that have actually fallen off a tree or bush - that are, in fact, dead already.
William: Right. Right. Interesting stuff. So, these carrots...
Keziah: Have been murdered, yes.
I'll let y'all guess to see if you can figure those out. And, though not from a movie, my favorite is: "If life gives you a lemon, make lemonade. However -- if life gives you a pickle, you might as well give up, because pickle-ade is disgusting." - Clifton J. Grey
Well, then: Who knows which movies Fatty is quoting?
