This week, I postponed the lovely post that I was GOING to share with you, because I found something REALLY funny - and it involves books and food!
I bring you...The Gallery of Regrettable Food!!
Here are a few excerpts. On the site that I am going to give you a link to, there are categories - many based on an old cookbook. Within the categories are pictures from that book and then the web administrator's rude little (funny!) remarks about the food, as follows:
There was an audible sigh of relief from the men when you brought this out. They had been told breakfast was part of brunch. They had seemed confused when nothing resembling breakfast was on the table. Then this! Sausages dipped in raw pancake batter. Now you’re talking, sister. Hey, this brunch thing’s lookin’ up . . . .
Ah, the life of a cosmopolitan. Late-night guests arriving at the SINFUL hour of ten PM, looking for food and drink. Not to worry - you're ready. You're dressed in a white tuxedo. Your wife has been preparing for just such an event by studying her Good Housekeeping Ten PM Cook Book, which spells out the precise means for pacifying groups according to their age and gender.
In the next few pages, you will be exposed to lurid, suggestive food imagery, so be warned. But that's what you have to expect when you're a night owl - when you're a Ten PM cook.
Slowly, the tiny alien approached the dish, hovering without a sound, ready to pounce.
The thing about meat is this: if you know it’s meat but you don’t know exactly what kind of meat, you’re still assured that it’s meat, and you know it’s meat.
No one knows what this is right away. Gradually, your eyes adjust, and think: peppers? Asparagus. With a coating of Lemon Pledge.

It’s a core sample from a geological age where VEGETABLES RULED THE EARTH.
When you have some time and need a laugh, go to the Gallery of Regrettable Food! You may not want to read the section called Meat Fisting because it is about the home slaughter of animals and there are pictures that may bother some people.
