What about the hot crossed buns?

I love it when everyone else gets botlocked! Buahaha! FIRST!

Well Well, that explains why my Cadbury eggs were so difficult to fry. Hmph.

Mmmmm, Shepherd's pie. Baby carrots. Italian food of any kind. I already love this thread!

So much for the hamburger.

So no divinity without God in it?
No Jordan Almonds without dirt in it?

French toast!

Then these need to be renamed, no??

Siouxie I LOLed!!!

I guess Spotted Dick is off the menu too.

And Toad in the Hole (sausages in pastry, for those of you who wondered)

Depends, casey, on the ingredients used.

And Chicken Ala King. (this is kinda fun!)

Then what the hell are in POP-TARTS ?

I'm certainly disappointed that baby food...isn't.

Here's hoping Coca Cola goes back their very first formula...

Anybody remember the Dragon sausages that had to be renamed because they didn't contain actual dragon?


Yum! I love Toad in the Hole! Spotted Dick, though, I've had about enough of.

I can't believe I'm the first one in THIS bunch to say ...

Crunchy Frog!!

**SNORK** @ casey!

(And, to be clear, for the easily-confused out there, I AM talking about the pudding... sheesh.)

I'm suddenly highly disappointed in my mother's "Million Dollar Torte."


One time, at band camp, I walked into a room that for some reason had a sock hanging off the doorknob and actually witnessed pigs-in-a-blanket. Eeeeeewwww!

peach Melba?
fettucini Alfredo?
Sh1t on a shingle?


Girl Scout Cookies?

Mmmmmm... Yorkshire pudding......


LOL casey!

chicken fingers?
tater tots?

easter is just screwed now, no robin's eggs, no chocolate bunnies or peeps.

I just hope I still get my Christmas goose!

"Waitress, I just finished eating this slice of 'death by chocolate' and I didn't taste any death in it. Furthermore, I am not dead because of it. I demand my money back!"

*waitress shoots obnoxious customer*

Black Forest cake? General Tso's Chicken? Shoefly Pie?

hmm...elephant ears!

"Waiter, about this hot dog...."

And of course, this is a problem.

Baked Alaska?

No ham in my hamburger ... no dog in my hot dog.

And these chicken nuggets are WAY too big.

LOL, Cheryl!

(Weird psychic experience with Annie ... we're both thinking of weiners at the same time.)

I suppose Berliner's could still be cream filled, but . . . .

Cheryl - yes, weird, but not unusual for this place.

Chicken pot pie??

I wonder what these guys expect at a bar.

Screwdriver, inspector?

Of course Poppycock is likely to be disappointing.

(I would have included the link here, but I am HTML illiterate)


Hey, it's the filling alternative to gumballs!

I don't think anyone would eat haggis if they had to list the ingredients, although blood pudding is aptly named and people still eat it.

um...no thanks, Baron.

Baron - haggis isn't an issue because most Scots can't read.

I really hope that this doesn't spread to a bar near me...

I would hate to lose my '$3x on the beach' or 'slow comfortable screw.'

CH - ;)

*hopes desperately that NT doesn't kill Annie after reading the post about non-reading Scots*

Now the "slow comfortable screw" is a new one on me, Bãrön. Why don't you show me how it's done?

Baron, what about this one?? kinda HOT too!

Egad...sounds like beavertails are finished as well...

DD, there are many ways to do the Slow Comfortable Screw...


Baby Ruth?
Kidney beans?
Navy beans?
Rock candy?

Wait... You mean my baby oil isn't from freshly pressed babies?!?

Wait... You mean my baby oil isn't from freshly pressed babies?!?

Foods that now cause confusion:
Chicken fried steak
Rocky Mountain Oysters
Popcorn shrimp

The "toad in the hole " that I have a recipe for is an egg fried in the center of a piece of toast - it has the hole. I'm not sure why an egg would be called a toad, but I'm not really that curious....

*pictures the Standards bloke as played by John Cleese*

Bear Claws

French Toast,

English Muffins

Hot Dog


Danish Pastry

Swiss C


Pigs in a blanket
Gumbo (emphasis on gum)
Corn dogs
Funnel cakes
devils food cake
angel food cake
eggs Benedict

Well, pointless as the whole practice is....there's plenty of foods out there to keep them busy. At least if they are busy, they aren't messing up anything else (we hope).

This just makes me think of ...

Crunchy frog!

Maybe someone can fix that link for easy clickage.

SOMEbody's gotta do it:

Inspector Praline: Mr Milton? You are sole proprietor and owner of the Whizzo Chocolate Company?

Milton: I am.

Praline: Superintendent Parrot and I are from the hygiene squad. We want to have a word with you about your box of chocolates entitled The Whizzo Quality Assortment.

Milton: Ah, yes.

Praline: (producing box of chocolates) If I may begin at the beginning. First there is the cherry fondue. This is extremely nasty, but we can't prosecute you for that.

Milton: Agreed.

Praline: Next we have number four, 'crunchy frog'.

Milton: Ah, yes.

Praline: Am I right in thinking there's a real frog in here?

Milton: Yes. A little one.

Praline: What sort of frog?

Milton: A dead frog.

Praline: Is it cooked?

Milton: No.

Praline: What, a raw frog?

(Superintendent Parrot looks increasingly queasy.)

Milton: We use only the finest baby frogs, dew-picked and flown from Iraq, cleansed in finest quality spring water, lightly killed, and then sealed in a succulent Swiss quintuple smooth treble cream milk chocolate envelope and lovingly frosted with glucose.

Praline: That's as may be, it's still a frog.

Milton: What else?

Praline: Well, don't you even take the bones out?

Milton: If we took the bones out it wouldn't be crunchy, would it?

Praline: Superintendent Parrot ate one of those.

Parrot: Excuse me a moment. (exits hurriedly)

Milton: It says 'crunchy frog' quite clearly.

Praline: Well, the superintendent thought it was an almond whirl. People won't expect there to be a frog in there. They're bound to think it's some form of mock frog.

Milton: (insulted) Mock frog? We use no artificial preservatives or additives of any kind!

Praline: Nevertheless, I must warn you that in future you should delete the words 'crunchy frog', and replace them with the legend 'crunchy raw unboned real dead frog', if you want to avoid prosecution.

Milton: What about our sales?

Praline: I'm not interested in your sales, I have to protect the general public. Now how about this one. (superintendent enters) It was number five, wasn't it? (superintendent nods) Number five, ram's bladder cup. (exit superintendent) What kind of confection is this?

Milton: We use choicest juicy chunks of fresh Cornish ram's bladder, emptied, steamed, flavoured with sesame seeds, whipped into a fondue, and garnished with lark's vomit.

Praline: Lark's vomit?

Milton: Correct.

Praline: Well it don't say nothing about that here.

Milton: Oh yes it does, on the bottom of the box, after monosodium glutamate.

Praline: (looking) Well I hardly think this is good enough. I think it would be more appropriate if the box bore a large red label warning lark's vomit.

Milton: Our sales would plummet.

Praline: Well why don't you move into more conventional areas of confectionery, like praline or lime cream, a very popular flavour I'm led to understand. (superintendent enters) I mean look at this one, 'cockroach cluster', (superintendent exits) 'anthrax ripple'. What's this one, 'spring surprise'?

Milton: Ah, now, that's our speciality - covered with darkest creamy chocolate. When you pop it in your mouth steel bolts spring out and plunge straight through both cheeks.

Praline: Well where's the pleasure in that? If people place a nice chocky in their mouth, they don't want their cheeks pierced. In any case this is an inadequate description of the sweetmeat. I shall have to ask you to accompany me to the station.
