Ah, hilarity. Those pretty much made my day, thanks!

Have to share this quote I came across today, in honor of the late President Reagan:

Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.

--Ronald Reagan

I would say he succeeded.

As long as we're on Shakespearean restaurant names......

Twelfth Knife
King Beer

Interesting--"The Taming of the Shrew" bears a stunning resemblance to "The Tasting of the Stew." One could write a parody with that.

Somehow I fear the Bard himself would be little amused.

Shakespeare, olde Billy boye,
Why did you cometh here.
There's a better place at the Wine Shoppe
Where they don't serve that English Beere.

What ? Never been to Bankok
You really should give it a twirl.
They have those wonderful spicy crabs
Served to you by a young, naked girl.

And in the city of Tel Aviv
The meat of the pig is forbidden.
But I knew a guy who once ate a pork chop
He consumed it while he was hidden.

In Japan it's always sushi
And other plates which would make you pale.
But the dish they like best, and that's not in jest
Is the slice of the ass of a whale.

When I was a scout we went camping
And our meals we were to make.
Most of the guys brought canned baked beans
But my mom slipped in a big cake.

In Paris town they eat real well
In the restaurant in the Eifel Tower.
But, if you plan on climbing up
The cream soup will have gone sour.

Hagis is a Scottish dish
Made of oatmeal and some tripe.
They've also got good whiskey
Which will make a piper pipe.

Now the Irish have their Irish stew
Made of spuds and mutton.
Some of it just once in a while
But for this I'm not a real glutton.

Canada is a great country
Where the mounties keep foot in the stirup.
Their specialty is flapjacks and bacon
And gallons of maple syrup.

And in a posh restaurant in Tokyo
You'll be served by a geisha girl.
And if you order some oysters
They'll even slip in a small pearl.

When I was a boy in Philly
Yes, that city on the East Coast.
They cooked many regional dishes
But the best was moms pot roast.

In Florida, in Miami or Tampa
They've all kinds of citrus fruits.
But better watchout for the alligators,
If they catch you, they won't let you loose.

In Normandy they've apples for cider
It's also the land of creamy butter.
The first is grown on little green trees
But the butter comes from an udder.

My mother always told me
That hot water was good for the bile.
I followed her advice to the letter
Except for a beer once in a while.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away
That's an old adage.
But you won't have many friends either,
If you eat too much green cabbage.

Now the swallows know Capistrano
They pass by there every fall.
They have a preference for spaghetti
Only if it's served with a meat ball.

In Vietnam they eat much dog
They prefer it better than rat.
But when there's a shortage of these
Watch out or you'll be missing your cat.

And as for the great British
They really are at a loss.
All they do is drink warm beer
And ride to the hounds on a hoss.

Now a hunchback lived in Notre Dame
He had a room in one of its towers.
He fell in love with Esmeralda
And dreamt about her for hours and hours.

E.J. Lewis

My dad is not a regular here, so I sometimes send him "transcripts" of good threads. He adores this one, especially "Ezra Poundcake with Robert Frosting."

I don't think we've exhausted the possibilities yet.


CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH THIS ONE?
Not ________ but Browning (Brownies?)


Song of My Shelf

By the Rivers of Babylon We Sat Down and Ate

Childe Roll-Up

Have a Waffle (is that too obscure?)

Rime of the Ancient Marmelade

A Cream within a Cream

AND MY FINAL OFFERING (FOR THE MOMENT):

To a Mousse

Marian-NYC:

I love them all, especially, To A Mousse.

How about:

Nothing Is So Beautiful as Springrolls
After The Golden Wedding Cake
Afternoon Tea
Angelcake In The House
An August Midnight Snack
Had I The Choice (I'd Have Skipped The Meatballs).

That's it! Hugh, you're brilliant!

"Not Microwaving, but Browning"

(Yes, I was thinking of the Stevie Smith, "Not Waving But Drowning.")


And "Have a Waffle" is supposed echo "Hiawatha," but it doesn't really.
