Aussie Barbecue Joke

BBQ Gif

After 4 long months of cold and winter, we are finally coming up to summer and Barbecue season. Therefore, it is important to refresh your memory on this sublime outdoor cooking etiquette as it’s the only type of cooking a real man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

When a man volunteers to do the Barbecue, usually on a Saturday, the following chain of events is put into motion:

Barbecue Routine

BBQ Flames gif
  1. The woman buys the food.
  2. The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
  3. The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill – beer in hand. Here comes the important part:
  4. THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL. More routine…
  5. The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
  6. The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation. Important again:
  7. THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN. More routine…..
  8. The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, and sauces and brings them to the table.
  9. After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes. And most important of all:
  10. Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
  11. They tell good old Aussie Barbie food jokes like the Question: What do you call a boomerang that won’t come back? Answer: A stick.
  12. The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ‘her night off.’ And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no pleasing some women…

Footnote: If the Barbecue catches fire then the man gets out the hosepipe. Meanwhile, the woman calls the fire brigade.

BBQ Return newspaper story

I was waiting at a customer services station at Asda when a woman in front of me was returning a disposable barbeque.  When asked why she was returning the barbeque, she replied, ‘There was no meat in it.’

The shop assistant patiently explained that the disposable barbeque was simply to cook the meat and it did not include any food.  Whereupon, the customer looked very embarrassed indeed.

The assistant checked the receipt and asked: ‘There are 3 barbeques on here, are you returning the other two as well?

‘I can’t’, said the woman, ‘they are at home in the freezer’.

Arresting Barbeque in China

Convict

An escaped convict has been recaptured at a party organized at the local police station. Police in Xinzhu City, Taiwan, invited residents to celebrate the Moon Festival with them.  Officers could not believe their eyes when they saw an escaped drug dealer called Chen, who had just been listed as one of the city’s most wanted criminals, at the party.  Police officer Cai Zhengtong, who was in charge of the barbecue, said, ‘I saw a man dressed in an eye-catching yellow windbreaker enter the place and sit in the corner. He was enjoying the barbecue with the others.  I really couldn’t believe my eyes, since the man was just the criminal we were seeking.’

Police at the party quickly arrested Chen. He told officers he thought it would have been the last place police would have thought of looking for him.

Crumb-down – Funny food jokes on Biscuits

A Town Hall ‘crumb-down’ has been ordered because thieving visitors keep stealing the councilors’ biscuits. Bosses at Canterbury City Council, Kent, UK, are fighting back by telling staff to hide the tea trolley during meetings to stop people purloining the biccies.

An unnamed council source said, ‘People coming to sit in on the meetings see the trolley and just help themselves. They think it is something that the council lays on for free, but the biscuits are for the councilors not members of the public.’

Footnote: Interesting how we always believe an ‘Unnamed source’, but always never the official spokesman.

Cheese Jokes – Funny Food jokes

Here is Will and Guy’s collection of funny food jokes on cheese, as opposed to cheesy jokes.

“The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.”

John was feeling pretty hungry. As he walked home from work, he noticed a sign in a pub window: “A pie, a pint, and a friendly word – £4”.

Settled comfortably inside, the barmaid served him his pie and his pint. “Just a moment,” he said, “where’s my friendly word?”

“Don’t eat the pie,” she replied.

Have you been offered jars of Nutella hazelnut spread lately? “Cash only, no questions asked.”

In the small town of Bad Hersfeld, central Germany, thieves got away with 5 tonnes of Nutella recently. That’s about 6,875 jars (a staggering 27 million calories!) worth almost £14,000.

Two weeks previously coffee worth £25,000 had been stolen, and last August a truckload of Red Bull energy drink disappeared in the same region of Germany.

Police are looking for hyperactive, insomniac, chocoholics.

Nick-named gastro-gangsters, food thieves are becoming more of a problem as food prices across the world rocket.

Goat Cheese Catches Fire in Norway

Would you believe it?  A lorry-load of burning cheese closed a road tunnel in Norway.  Over 25 tonnes of goat’s cheese (a delicacy known as Brunost) became caramelized after it caught the light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord in northern Norway.

The fire raged for five days and smoldering toxic gases slowed the recovery operation. Three weeks later the tunnel was still closed because of the fire damage Police officer Viggo Berg said the high concentration of fat and sugar in the cheese makes it burn “almost like petrol if it gets hot enough”.

The driver spotted the fire in his trailer and abandoned his lorry about 300m (1,000ft) from the southern entrance. No one was hurt. Kjell Bjoern Vinje, of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, said it was the first time he could remember cheese catching fire on Norwegian roads.

“I didn’t know that brown cheese burns so well,” he said.

Surprise Cheese

Vera’s husband Charlie often fell asleep during the Sunday sermon. His wife, Vera, was fed up and decided to deal with the embarrassing situation.

The next Sunday when he fell asleep, she quietly removed some pungent Stilton cheese from a bag in her purse and passed it under his nose.

Groggily startled, Charlie cried out, ‘No, Vera, no, please don’t kiss me now.’

Cheeses

A cheese may disappoint. It may be dull, it may be naïve, it may be over-sophisticated. Yet it remains cheese, milk’s leap toward
immortality. – Clifton Fadiman, essayist (1904-1999)

Goat’s Cheese Production

A group of Americans were on a bus tour of France when they came upon the town of Sancerre in the Loire Valley. They eventually stopped at the little village of Chavignol and visited a cheese farm where the world-famous ‘Crottin de Chavignol’ goat’s cheese is made; their guide, who was the farmer’s wife, led them through a process of cheese making, explaining how goat’s milk was used.

Funny old goat - Story

Madame showed the group a picturesque hillside where many goats were grazing. These, she explained, were the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produced.  Madame then asked, turning to the group, ‘What do you do in the USA with your old goats that aren’t producing?’

One spry and very quick elderly gentleman answered, ‘They send us on bus tours.’

The Cats, The Monkey and The Cheese

In our food jokes, two Siamese cats found a piece of cheese and cut it into two pieces.  Now, one piece was slightly bigger than the other. Being mini tigers, both cats wanted the bigger piece.

So they decided to approach a monkey and ask him to sort out the matter.

The monkey said, ‘Don’t worry. I’ll make both the pieces equal. Then it took a bite from the bigger piece. But this made the other piece larger. So it took a bite from the other piece. This continued till the pieces became very small.

Seeing this, the Siamese cats pleaded, ‘Sir. We are satisfied. Let us have the pieces of cheese now.’

The shrewd monkey replied, ‘This is my fee for sorting out the problem.’

Saying that he wolfed down all the remaining cheese.

Cheese Rolling Competition

In Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, each year they hold a cheese-rolling competition, in which contestants chase a cheese down a slope.

In 1546, author John Heywood wrote in “Proverbes” that “The moon is made of a green cheese.” But in 1546 Greene meant new, un-aged, not green in color.

In 1883, Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson in the book “Treasure Island” when castaway Ben Gunn finally is found by young Jim Hawkins says, “You mightn’t happen to have a piece of cheese about you, now? No? Well, many’s the long night I’ve dreamed of cheese–toasted, mostly–and woke up again, and here I was.”

In the early 1900s, American comic actor W. C. Fields said, “The clever cat eats cheese and breathes down rat holes with bated breath.”

Cheesy Facts

  • Most cheese is produced from cow, sheep, or goat’s milk but it can and has been made from a plethora of milk-producing animals. A farm owned by Christer and Ulla Johansson, in Bjurholm, Sweden makes moose cheese. They keep three moose and produce only 300 kilograms of cheese per year. The moose cheese sells for roughly US$1000 per kilogram.  Incidentally, see the Year of the Goat.
  • The United States is the top producer of cheese in the world, with Wisconsin and California leading the states in production.
  • Greece and France are the leading cheese consumers averaging 27.3 and 24.0 kilograms per person in 2003 respectively.
  • Limburger cheese is notorious for its strong and generally unpleasant odor. The bacteria (known as brevibacterium linens) causes this. It is also found on human skin and is partially responsible for body odor.
  • Queen Victoria was given a wedding gift of a Cheddar cheese weighing half a ton!
  • The size of holes in Gruyere and Emmental can be adjusted by controlling temperature, acidity, and curing time. In the US, these holes must be no more than 11/16th of an inch because cheese-slicing machines don’t work on larger holes!

One More Cheesy Joke

Food jokes on Couch Potato

Will and Guy’s collection of funny, silly, and surprising food jokes in honor of the humble potato.

Potato Sack exercise for improved strength and fitness:

Potato Sack Gif

Will has just come across this exercise, suggested for ‘seniors’, to build muscle strength in the arms and shoulders.  It seems so easy, so I thought I’d pass it on to some of my friends and family. The article suggested doing it three days a week.

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface where you have plenty of room on each side. With a 5lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, then relax.

Each day, you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10lb potato sacks.

Then 50lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

(As I write this I have to admit that I’m at this level)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.

Job for a Potato?

Potato Gif

Peter visits a watchmaker and asks if it’s possible to make a clock out of potatoes. Iain, the experienced watchmaker, replied it’s possible to make a clock out of just about anything, but he’d never made one out of potatoes before, and he’d have to do some research. Later that day Iain calls Peter, the customer, and tells him he can make one, but it will take about two weeks before it’s ready.

A fortnight later Peter calls back and lo and behold the clock is ready. Delighted with the result, he pays the watchmaker and starts to leave the shop, when the Iain says, ‘Errr, excuse me for asking, but this was a most unusual request; may I enquire why you want a clock made out of potatoes?’

‘Certainly,’ replies Peter, ‘Just before I saw you last, I went for a job interview and we discussed my skills and experience. The interview went pretty well and the man said I could have the job providing I could get a potato clock.’

Subject: Living wills kindly sent in by Suzanne Brenzi

While I was watching the back-to-back football games the other night, my wife and I got into a silly conversation about life and death, and the need for living wills. During the conversation, I told her that I never wanted to exist in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and taking fluids from a bottle.  She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out all my beer.

Potato Festival

Potatoes

Small and pink, black and bumpy, even grey and shriveled — the potato took center stage on Tuesday as Bolivian peasants admired each other’s prize produce at an Andean harvest festival.

Hundreds of villagers dressed in the traditional ceremonial dress of bright red ponchos and shawls gathered in the highland village of Pillapi to show off 32 varieties of potatoes, swap tips, dance, and share a typical potato picnic.

Lino Condori, mayor of the Tiwanaku municipality where Pillapi is located, said ‘The potato that the conquerors took to Europe is the most important product in our region’.

He was referring to Spain, which colonized the Andean highlands in the 16th century and took one of their discoveries — potatoes — back to Europe.

Local authorities are hoping the festival will eventually become a tourist attraction.  Reported from PILLAPI, in Bolivia by Reuters.

Give Peas a Chance

A Cheltenham mum is to undergo therapy to help her overcome her fear of peas.  Louise Arnold flees restaurants if she spots peas on a plate and gets anxious if she sees them in a supermarket. Now Louise, 35, is to undergo therapy as part of an ITV show called Phobias in a bid to cure her irrational fear. She will see counselors, hypnotherapists, and acupuncturists to tackle the phobia that began after the birth of daughter Chloe, five.

She said: ‘I’ve got to stop this because I can’t bear to be in the same room as peas. There have been occasions where I’ve been out for a meal and asked the waiter for no peas and had to rush out of the restaurant when they forgot. I can’t even go to my local pub because they serve peas on the menu. I’d love to lead a normal life and be able to go into the pub and have a drink.’

But she gets little sympathy from her friends, who buy her a silly T-shirt saying: ‘Give peas a chance’.

Nicky Lidbetter of the National Phobic Society believes that Louise could be cured of her phobia.

Reported by Ananova online and the Victoria Derbyshire show on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Will Commissions Research Into Chocolate

Chocolate Heart

Chocolate set the heart pounding, with heart rates for some of the 12 volunteers rising from a resting rate of about 62 beats per minute to as
high as 145.

Eating chocolate is more stimulating to the heart and the head than kissing, according to new research conducted in 2010.

The study found that at the point the chocolate melted in the mouth, all regions of the brain received a boost far more intense and longer lasting than the mental excitement from kissing.

Dr David Lewis, a psychologist formerly of the University of Sussex who led the study, said, ‘These results surprised and intrigued us.’

Dr Lewis, who now runs a private research company called The Mind Lab, added, ‘There is no doubt that chocolate beats kissing hands down when it comes to providing a long-lasting body and brain buzz.’

A Town Hall ‘crumb-down’ has been ordered because thieving visitors keep stealing the councilors’ biscuits. Bosses at Canterbury City Council, Kent, UK, are fighting back by telling staff to hide the tea trolley during meetings to stop people purloining the biccies.

An unnamed council source said, ‘People coming to sit in on the meetings see the trolley and just help themselves. They think it is something that the council lays on for free, but the biscuits are for the councilors not members of the public.’

‘With little holes in them?’ the psychiatrist enquired. That’s right, Doc,’ responded Chris with relief, ‘That’s it exactly.’

‘You’re crackers!’ announced the psychiatrist.

* If Chris had gone to a psychiatrist in Manhattan, he would have called biscuits, cookies.

Fancy a Nosebag?

Horse Nosebag

‘Some biscuit bar manufacturer hit upon the simple notion of emptying the leavings of carthorse nose bags, adding a few other things like unconsumed portions of chicken layer’s mash, and the sweepings of racing stables, packaging the mixture into little bars and selling them in health food shops.’

Funny Cake

Who are these people we ask?

Here, the customer requested that the word, ‘congratulations’ be written. You will observe that the cake maker has written it twice since the one word they asked for was a plural.

More food jokes – Takes the Biscuit!

Cookie

As a part of our food jokes, we decided to tell you a story of a biscuit.

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed.  While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Italian anisette sprinkle biscuits wafting up the stairs.

Gathering his remaining strength, he lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands he crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the doorframe, gazing into the kitchen. Where if not for death’s agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were hundreds of his favorite anisette sprinkled biscuits.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted Italian wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, and the wondrous taste of the biscuit was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life.

The aged and withered hand trembled on its way to a biscuit at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife….. ‘Back off!’ she said, ‘they’re for the funeral.’

Funny Cake Toppers And Amusing Food jokes

Cake shotgun

Attention to detail is one of the vital life skills.  Nowhere is this more important than in cake decoration.  A small mistake and you can ‘blow’ your profits.  A big mistake with one squirt of the icing cones and you can wreck your reputation as a cake topper.

Funny Cake Pictures

Will and Guy have established that most of these cakes were made by professionals who had been asked to write specific messages on them. We are most grateful to Hannah Baker for drawing our attention to the funny cake toppers, thus enabling this page to be written.

Here you go with food jokes about cakes represented on pictures:

Funny Cake – Underneath

This cake order was for poor Suzanne who was leaving the business. The person who ordered the cake told them to write: “Best
Wishes Suzanne” and underneath that, write “We will miss you”. They couldn’t even spell ‘underneath’ correctly!

We will miss you cake

Above is the cake that was delivered – amazing, even hilarious. On reflection, Will and Guy think it’s rather sad.

Triplets?

The woman involved here was expecting triplets. So the order was for “congratulations” to be written on it three times. This was the result.

The Bride Was a Picture

Chidi Ogbuta, 35, from Texas, had a 5ft cake made into a life-sized model of herself to renew her vows after 10 years of marriage to her husband Innocent.

The $5,000 cake took weeks to make and required 2 gallons of amaretto, 50 lbs of sugar, 200 eggs and weighed a whopping 400lb.  It needed four men to lift it into the wedding venue.

Who Ate All The Pies?

Pie cake

1. Funny Wedding Cake Amuses Guests

Newlyweds Emma and John Kent tucked into a four-tier pork pie wedding cake after trotting down the aisle. Mr Kent, 42, of Lincoln, laughed, ‘I had no idea it had been made but it was fantastic.’

The 10kg pie cost £150 [$226 ] which is some £500 [$753] less than a traditional wedding cake; it also took almost eight hours to construct.

2. Simon Says, ‘My Cake Is Bigger Than Yours’

Simon, the pie man from Fladbury, Worcestershire, England, may have just completed the world’s first five-tier pork pie as a unique variation on the traditional wedding cake.

Mr. Simon Taylor, the owner of Fladbury Pies and Sausages, was commissioned to make the replica cake in the classic recipe of his famous for making pies for a weddings.

Pie cakes

The award-winning pie-maker has made big pork pies before, and while other couples have had similar pork pie wedding cakes, this is possibly the world’s first five-tier example. Will and Guy can reveal, ‘We are famous for our pork pies. We have won awards for them and people come from miles to try them. It’s just a bit of fun. We have made big pork pies but have never been asked to make a tiered pork pie before. It was made to the same recipe as our smaller pies, but still looked like a wedding cake.’

The cake, or pie was made at the request of Russell Powell, from Peopleton, who married long-time partner Belinda Jane Twine.

A Funny Cake Story

We’re not finished with our food jokes on cakes.

Angel cake

Mrs Sara Bryce decided to bake a cake for the Presbyterian Church Ladies’ Group which was holding a homemade cake sale in Madison, Wisconsin, but she had forgotten to do it until the very last minute.

Sara remembered it on the morning of the sale and after rummaging through her kitchen cabinets, she found an angel food cake mix and quickly made it while drying her hair and dressing, and helping her son Clint get ready to go to Scout camp.

When Sara took the cake out of the oven, the center had dropped flat and the cake was misshapen. Sara thought, ‘Oh no, there’s no time to bake another cake.’  This particular cake was so important to Sara because she did so want to fit in at her new church, and in her new community of new friends having only moved to Madison two months earlier.

A creative body, Sara searched her home for something that would build up the center of the cake. Eureka. She found it in the bathroom: a roll of toilet paper!  She pushed it quickly into the cake and then covered it beautifully with white icing. Not only did the finished product look beautiful, it looked perfect!

Before leaving home to take the cake to the church bazaar and then travel to work, Sara woke her daughter, Louise, and gave her some money and specific instructions to be at the sale the minute it opened at 9:30 am.  She was to buy that cake and bring it straight home. However, when Louise arrived at the sale, she found, to her horror, that the attractive “perfect cake” had already been sold. Louise seized her mobile phone and called her mother.

Sara, was horrified; she was beside herself, everyone would know, what would they think? She would be ostracized, talked about behind her back, and worse – ridiculed.

That night Sara lay awake thinking about people pointing their fingers at her and talking about her.  So the very next day, Sara promised herself
that she would try not to think about the cake and she would attend the fancy luncheon at the home of a friend of a friend and try to have a good
time.

She did not want to attend because the hostess was a snob who, more than once, had looked down her nose at the fact that Sara was a single parent and not from the founding families of Madison, but having already agreed to go she could not think of a believable excuse to stay home.

The meal was elegant, the company was the upper crust, ‘classy’ as they say in Britain; and to Sara’s horror, the cake in question was presented for dessert.

She felt the blood drain from her face when she saw the, now decorated, cake. She started off her chair to tell her hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, the Mayor’s wife said, ‘What a beautiful cake.’

Sara, who was still stunned, sat back in her chair when she heard the hostess [who was a prominent church member] murmur, ‘Thank you, do you know, I baked it myself.’

Sara smiled broadly and thought to herself, ‘God is good.’

Yet Another True, Strange, and Funny Cake Story

An elderly man has been hurt fighting over the last piece of cake at an ‘all-you-can-eat buffet’ held in a restaurant in Novate Milanese, Milan, Italy.

Niccolo Bruno, the victim, seized the cake, and another pensioner, Alfredo Mancini, who was attempting to grab the same piece of cake, stabbed Bruno in the hand with a knife while they were at the food counter.

The guilty man then tried to flee out of the restaurant but was arrested by the police. Bruno was hospitalised after the incident but Will and Guy
have been able to find out that he is now quite well.

Funny Chili Taster Story in Texas

Chili cartoon

Inexperienced Chili* Taster visits Texas

Notes from an Inexperienced Chili Tester called Dan, who was visiting Mexico from Texas. This is how Dan reported his experience:

‘Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge’s table asking for directions to the beer wagon when the call came. The other two judges (Native Mexicans) assured me that the chili wouldn’t be all that spicy, and besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting. So I accepted.’

Here are the scorecards for the eight Chili’s that were submitted for judging by Jose, Carlos, Fred, Bubba, Linda, Vera, Ana, and Lester.

Chili # 1 Mike’s Mild Chili

Chili Jar Picante sauce

JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.

JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

DAN: Crikey, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that’s the worst one. These Mexicans are crazy.  The chili taster story continues …

Chili # 2 Carlos’s Afterburner Chili

JUDGE ONE: Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.

JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.

DAN: Keep this out of the reach of children I’m not sure what I am supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.  The chili taster story continues …

Chili # 3 Fred’s Famous Burn Down The Barn Chili

JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.

JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

DAN: Call the EPA, I’ve located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now get me more beer before I ignite. The barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. Wey the beer is good stuff.  The chili taster story continues…

Chili # 4 Bubba’s Black Magic

JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.

DAN: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it, is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb. lady was starting to look HOT, just like this nuclear waste I was eating. Is chili an aphrodisiac?   The chili taster story continues …

Chili # 5 Linda’s Legal Lip Remover

JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers are freshly ground, adding a considerable kick. Very Impressive.

JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

DAN: My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage, Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from a pitcher. I wonder if I’m burning my lips off.  It cheeses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Crazy rednecks!

Chili # 6 Vera’s Very Vegetarian Variety

JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice and peppers.

JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.

DAN: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulphuric flames. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that girl Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can’t feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my mouth with a snow cone!   The chili taster story continues …

Chili # 7 Ana’s Screaming Sensation Chili

JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note that I am worried about Judge Number 3, He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.

DAN: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn’t feel a damn thing. I’ve lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. At least during the autopsy, they’ll know what killed me. I’ve decided to stop breathing; it’s too painful. Stuff it. I’m not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I’ll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.  The story continues but without the chili taster.

Chili # 8 Lester’s Last Of The Red-Hot Lover’s Chili

JUDGE ONE: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend of chili, safe for all, not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.

JUDGE TWO: This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 3 passed out, fell over, and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he’s going to make it. Poor Yank, wonder how he’d have reacted to a really hot chili?

Comment: In Southwest Texas, we have two chili cook-offs a year and raise money for schools, fire departments, and others.  Dan’s chili sounds about right.  But not to worry; your taste buds grow back in about 3 months!  [Leigh Eaton]

Experts Identify Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as the World’s Hottest Pepper

Experts at New Mexico’s State University’s Chile Pepper Institute have identified the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion as the hottest pepper on the planet.


Footnote: The inexperienced chili taster is one of our favorite food jokes. *Chili: Throughout my life, I have had trouble with spelling in general, and
double letters in particular.  The spell checker is my salvation. Even so, there is variation when applying the double letter rule in England
compared with America, for example, Chilli, Travelled, and Modelling.

And with that, we’re closing food jokes on chili* taster visits.

Funny Chocolate test – Maths

Next, let us introduce more food jokes on chocolate tests.

Test Your Age Using Chocolate Maths

This test math test won’t take long.

Start the Chocolate Test

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate.  More than once but less than 10 times.

2. Multiply this number by 2.

3. Add 5.

4. Multiply it by 50 — I’ll wait while you get the calculator (Click Start button, run, calc.)

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1765 …. If you haven’t had a birthday, add 1764.

6. Now subtract the four-digit year that you were born.

You should have a three-digit number.

The first digit of this was your original number.  This is the number of times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

Important Footnote

The above test is designed specifically for the year = 2015.  However, once you understand the principle, then you can amend it for 2016 and other years:

2015 use: 1765 and 1764
2016 use: 1766 and 1765
2017 use: 1767 and 1766

For example when you choose 2 Chocolates

  1. Chocolates a day = 2
  2. 2 x 2 = 4
  3. 4 + 5 = 9
  4. 9 x 50 = 450
  5. 450 + 1765 = 2215
  6. 2215 – yyyy where yyyy = Year you were born.
  7. 2214
  8. – 1949 = 265 (No birthday this year yet)
  9. 66 (in 266) = Two Chocolate a day choice, age 66
  10. 65 (in 265) = Age if born in 1949.  (and no birthday yet in 2015!)

Why does it work?

Part a) The number of chocolates per day

Multiplying by 2 and later multiplying by 50 means multiplying by a total of 100.  When the smoke clears:

1 x 100 = 100  (one choc)

2 x 100 = 200  so the first digit will tell the number of chocolates per day that you chose.

Part b) The clever part comes from the relationship between 1765 and 2015, this is exactly 250.  Do you remember adding 5? Well look back and see that 5 x 50 = 250.  Another way of looking at the figures is: 1765 + (5 x 50) = 2015


Will and Guy’s humor – Here is another test

As a part of our food jokes, we decided to introduce another test to you:

What Makes 100%?

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% of life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98% and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

AND, look how far obsequious will take you. O-B-S-E-Q-U-I-O-U-S 15+2+19+5+17+21+9+15+21+19 = 143%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it’s
obsequiousness that will put you over the top.

You may have gathered that this joke has been censored, it’s what I call the Aunty effect.  For the unexpurgated version see here.

Footnote: I have to say that the whole principle of assigning letters and therefore words a number, is ripe for modification.  Have fun making up your own words and giving them value.

food Jokes on cooking

Here is our cookery section of these food jokes. Preparing food is a rich source of funny outcomes because there are many possibilities for humorous slips between cup and lip.

So, let’s start food jokes on cooking:

Chef’s Special

Nigel: The two things I cook best are meatloaf and apple pie.
Sally: Which is this?

How to Cook – or Not

chef gif

Michael has no talent for cooking.  He has trouble with such simple tasks as peeling potatoes or slicing onions, even though he often insists on helping his wife in the kitchen.  Once he read a shopping list on which Greta had written, ‘unhusked rice.’  Good lord, ‘he sighed, ‘what a job that’s going to be’.

How Bachelors Cook – or Not

Two confirmed bachelors sat talking. Their conversation drifted from politics to cooking. ‘I got a cookbook once’, said the first, ‘but I
could never do anything with it.’

‘Too much fancy cooking in it, eh?’ asked the second. ‘You said it. Every one of the recipes began the same way – ‘Take a clean dish and…’

Footnote: Have you noticed with food jokes, how one story reminds you of another?  This effect is even more noticeable if you tell food jokes in pubs.  Well, the above joke reminded Will of the following true story.  Names have been changed to protect the guilty.

House-Husband Cooking?

Nigel retired before Sally, and as a result, he would do more of the chores. For example, on Friday he would dust and vacuum the house. On two other days, he would prepare and cook the evening meal.

Now Nigel’s forté was certainly not cooking. One recipe asked for ‘seasoned flour’ to be added. Nigel searched the kitchen cupboards and found the plain flour and the self-raising flour.  In the end, he had to ring Sally at her work to ask where she kept the ‘seasoned flour’.

Cilantro (Coriander) – or Cement!

This is one of the food jokes that doesn’t even need explanation:

Another Funny Cooking Story

Below, we’ll continue telling more food jokes and stories about cooking.

Jonathan Arthur’s Kitchen Nightmare:

At the age of eleven, that’s many years ago, I was enrolled in Callington Grammar school, in darkest Cornwall. I have to say it was a perfectly fine school with dedicated if somewhat eccentric teachers and a generally enlightened outlook.

It did however stick to many of the traditions of the day. Sports and metalwork teachers tended to have a military background and short manly nicknames that they fondly thought the pupils wished to call them. Skip, Gunner, and Pip are three that come to mind. They also included in their lessons a ritual humiliation and jovial sadism that was no doubt supposed to be good for our character but was something I could never see much fun in. The result was that I, which was a first for a male student, opted to take lessons in domestic science rather than metalwork or woodwork.

Domestic science had nothing scientific about it but the class was all girls, apart from my friend Cobb and I, which was just fine by me.

Our first lesson was hardly challenging. The menu was beans on toast and cocoa. Each pair of aspirant cooks had a work surface, sink, and gas stove. After successfully getting the beans out of the can and into a pan, the milk into another pan, and the already sliced bread under the grill I couldn’t help thinking this was all just too easy, and in the same way that the first officer on the Titanic might have nonchalantly called for some ice, I asked Cobb to look for some plates for our meal.

As he crouched down to look in the cupboards next to the stove several things started to happen in quick succession. First, realizing that the beans were, to put it mildly, overcooked, I tried to scrape them off the bottom of the pan, not noticing that the milk was on the point of boiling over and that the already smoking toast had burst into flames.

Luckily, or perhaps not, our teacher had spotted the situation and strode purposely over to take control of the situation. What she could not have realized was that one of us (we both later blamed the other) had managed to switch on the gas oven without lighting it. The pressure of the gas slightly pushes open the oven door.

It might have been the lit rings on the top or a piece of falling incandescent toast but the oven chose that moment to explode setting light to Miss Pendragon’s light blue and white checkhouse coat, which went up in a sheet of flame leaving molten plastic stuck to her clothes, arms and legs. The force of the blast also knocked the cupboard off hitting Cobb’s head momentarily stunning him so he was in no condition to avoid the boiling milk that now jumped off the stove.  It did spring him back into consciousness quite quickly though!

With what I still believe to be a great presence of mind I doused both thoroughly with a bucket of water that had previously been used for cleaning the floor but I am saddened to say was never thanked by either of them.

Bring Me The Winner

Waiter, this lobster has only one claw.

I’m sorry, sir. It must have been in a fight.

Well then bring me the winner.

Mother Knows Best – Eventually

One day, a young Sarah girl was watching her mother make a roast sirloin of beef. She cut off the ends, wrapped it in string, seasoned it, and set it in the roasting dish.

Sarah politely asked her mum why she cut off the ends of the roast. Mum replied, after some thought, that it was the way that her mother had done it.

That night Grandma came to dinner and Sarah and her mother asked why she had cut the end off of the roast before cooking.  After some thought Grandma replied, that she cooked the meat the way her mother had done it.

Now great-grandma was quite old and lived in a residential nursing home, so Sarah, her mum, and grandma went to visit her and again asked the very same question.

Great-grandma looked at them a bit surprised and said, ‘So it would fit in the roasting dish, of course.’

Humorous and Appealing Food Jokes

Next, here are some more appealing food jokes and stories.

The Poor Man and Truffles Restaurant

Old Samuel was a very poor tailor whose shop, in Redbridge, Essex, England, was next door to a very upmarket French restaurant – Truffles.

Cuisine Francais Cartoon

Every day at lunchtime, Samuel would go out the back of his shop and eat his black bread and herring while smelling the wonderful odors coming from the Truffles’ kitchen.

One day, Samuel was surprised to receive an invoice from Jean-Luc, the restaurateur for “enjoyment of food.” So he went immediately to speak to
Jean-Luc pointed out that he had not bought anything from them. Jean-Luc smiled and said, ‘You’re enjoying our food, so you should pay us for it.’

Naturally, Samuel refused to pay and the restaurant owner sued him.

At the hearing, the Judge asked the restaurant to present their side of the case. Jean-Luc stood up and purred, ‘Every day, this man comes and sits outside our kitchen at the rear of Truffles; he smells our food while eating his, it is clear that we are providing added value to his poor food and we deserve to be compensated for it.’

The Judge turned to Samuel and said, ‘What do you have to say to that?’

Samuel didn’t say anything but stuck his hand in his pocket and rattled the few coins he had inside.

The Judge asked him, ‘What is the meaning of that?’

Samuel replied, ‘Well it’s simple really, I’m paying for the smell of his food with the sound of my money.’

Lyn belongs to our Diet Club and she was lamenting that she had gained weight.

She told us that she had made her family’s favourite luscious cake over the weekend, and added that they’d eaten half of it at dinner that
evening.

The next day, Lyn continued, she kept staring at the other half, until finally she cut a thin slice for herself. One slice led to another, and soon the whole cake had vanished.

She went on to tell us how upset she was with her lack of willpower, and how she knew her husband would be so disappointed. Everyone commiserated until someone asked what her husband said when he found out.

Lyn smiled broadly and quipped, ‘He never found out.  I made another cake and ate half of that too.’

The Doubly Strange Saga of the Chanterelle Lemon Soufflé

According to Reuters, Canada’s Ottawa Citizen newspaper the Autumn of 2006 printed a recipe for Chanterelle Lemon Pasta in its food section. Ingredients included one cup of Chanterelle mushrooms. They even provided a helpful photograph so amateur mushroom hunters could find their own growing in the wild. Unfortunately, the photograph instead showed Destroying Angels mushrooms, which are deadly when eaten.

Why are these doubly food jokes strange?  Well, the Chanterelle Lemon Soufflé saga has all the makings of an urban myth.  Will and Guy could not find the alleged original article either on Reuter’s site or among the Ottawa Citizens articles.  We have culled the pictures below from elsewhere, simply to illustrate the two species of the fungi in question.

Chanterelle
Destroying Angel Mushroom

Meanwhile, while we await Canadian readers to write in with the inside story, we wish to emphasize that Destroying Angel, Amanita Virosa, and the closely related Amanita Phalloides are deadly poisonous. The main difference from the ordinary mushroom is that these Avenging Angel caps are pure white, or occasionally have a green aura.  The gills under the Destroying Angel cap are also white and are never the usual salmon-pink color.

  • The biggest drawback to fasting for seven days is that it makes one weak.
  • The toughest part of a diet isn’t watching what you eat.  It’s watching what other people eat.
  • An excellent way to lose weight is by skipping … snacks and desserts.

So Hungry I Could Eat the Plate

Chen Liang-erh, 50, an amateur inventor living in Taipei, Taiwan has perfected an edible plate. It is made from wheat grain, and he plans to mass-produce it with other edible crockery including cups, bowls, and food containers.

Will and Guy are aware that he argues that hungry diners, tempted to lick a plate after a delicious meal, can now go a step further and demolish the whole lot. Sadly, we have learned, that the plates have the taste of unsalted popcorn – not exactly an exciting culinary delight.

In his favor, Chen says the crockery can be boiled and will provide a nutritious meal for your pet. Lovely.

Hot Diet Tips and News and…

And one-liner food jokes:

  • Did you hear about the gourmet who avoids unfashionable restaurants because he doesn’t want to gain weight in the wrong places?
  • Is it true that several food jokes about dieting can be referred to as ‘a binge of jokes’?
  • A funny thing with a diet, the second day of a diet is always easier than the first.  By the second day, you’re off it. Jackie Gleason
  • Do you call a person who has abandoned their diet a deserter?
  • Never go back for seconds… get it all the first time.
  • A great way to lose weight is to eat while you are naked and standing in front of a mirror.  Restaurants will always throw you out before you can eat too much.

Funny Diet Rationale from George Bernard Shaw

No diet will remove all the fat from your body because the brain is entirely fat. Without a brain, you might look good, but all you can do is run for public office.

The Government has Issued New Guidelines for a Healthy Diet

Asian diet pyramid

They advise you to:

  1. List your ten favorite foods.
  2. List your five favorite drinks.
  3. List all green vegetables that look like marsh grass, fur balls, or little trees.
  4. List water.
  5. Avoid 1 & 2; eat only 3; drink only 4.

Eating Properly is Essential in a Good Diet

Terry rushes into Doctor Sims’s surgery. He has a parsnip up one nostril, a courgette in his left ear, and a banana in his right ear.

‘Doctor, Doctor,’ Terry wails, ‘I’ve got dreadfully sore ears and can hardly breathe!  What’s wrong with me?’

Doctor Sims looks at him for a few moments, shakes her head sorrowfully, and answers, ‘Terry, you’re not eating properly.’

Mark Twain

Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

A Generous Diet

Needing to shed a few pounds, Robert, and his wife Jennifer, went on a diet that had specific recipes for each meal of the day. They followed the instructions extremely closely, dividing the finished recipe in half for their portions. Robert and Jennifer felt terrific and thought the diet was wonderful; they had never felt better, nor did they ever feel hungry.

As time progressed, Robert and Jennifer realized that they were putting on weight and not losing it. They decided that they ought to check the details of the recipes just one more time. It was then that they found their error.

There, in small print, Robert and Jennifer saw, to their horror: ‘Serves 6’.

Funny Diet – One-liners

Top Ten Best, Funny, Droll, and Humorous Diet Tips from Will and Guy

These food jokes wouldn’t be perfect without including Guy’s dieting tips.

  1. Don’t take Will and Guy’s humorous diet tips too seriously, they’re just for fun. Success comes when you can look beyond food and look down and see your feet.
  2. Always stand sideways for photographs, it’s slimming.
  3. Always stand next to a person fatter than you whenever possible.
  4. Always eat in private, if people never see you eat, they’ll believe you when you say you have a thyroid problem.

    anyone sees you, you strike the pose. The problem is that you have to maintain the pose until they leave.
  6. Ladies: Cross your legs at your ankles. Your thighs and calves will look slimmer.
  7. Get a tan. A tan helps you look thinner.
  8. Regular daily laughs equals at least 10 minutes of exercise……………………….
  9. Inside Guy lives a skinny man trying to get out. But he can usually shut him up with chocolate chip cookies.
  10. Never trust a dog to watch your food.

Hilarious, Silly and Funny Diet Advice

Now, let’s focus on food jokes that contain funny diet advice.

Obesity Cartoon
  • A chocolate mousse that you did not order has no calories. Therefore, have your companion order dessert and you taste half of it.
  • Chocolate chips are fattening, about 50 calories a tablespoon. However, chocolate chips eaten while making chocolate chip cookies have
    no calories whatsoever. Therefore make chocolate chip cookies often but don’t eat them.
  • All food eaten while standing has no calories. Exactly why is not clear, but the current theory relates to gravity. The calories bypass the stomach flowing directly down the legs and through the soles of the feet into the floor, like electricity. Walking seems to accelerate this process so that a frozen custard or hot dog eaten at a fayre has a calorie deficit.
  • Anything produced, purchased, or intended for minors is calorie-free when eaten by adults. This category covers a wide range, beginning with a spoonful of baby tapioca, consumed for demonstration purposes, up to and including *biscuits baked and sent to college.
  • Pies and cakes should be cut neatly, in even wedges or slices. If not, the responsibility falls on the person putting them away to “straighten up the edges” by slicing away the offending irregularities, which have no calories when eaten.
  • Anything eaten in front of the TV has no calories. This may have something to do with radiation leakage, which negates not only the calories.
  • If you have a drink in your right hand, anything eaten with the other hand has no calories. Several principles are at work here. First of all, you’re probably standing up at a cocktail party (see “Food on Foot”). Then there’s the electronic field: a wet glass in one hand forms a negative charge to reverse the polarity of the calories attracted to the other hand. I’m not exactly sure how it works, but it’s reversible if you’re left-handed
  • All cakes are horrendously fattening. However, the calories can be eliminated simply by inscribing “Happy Birthday, Bob” or “Good Luck, Pauline” in colored icing. Not only is it unnecessary to decline, it’s impolite.
  • Sausages, cheese, and the like are all fattening unless impaled on frilled toothpicks. The insertion of a sharp object allows the calories to leak out the bottom.
  • If you are rushed through a meal, the entire meal doesn’t count. Conversely, if you have ordered something fattening and now regret it, you can minimize its calories by gulping it down.
  • Anything somebody made ‘just for you’ must be eaten regardless of the calories because to do otherwise would be uncaring and insensitive.

Funny food jokes and Diet Stories

In this section, we’ll focus on some more food jokes on dieting.

Floor Collapses During Weight Watchers’ Weigh-in

Just after Christmas 2009 19 members of Weight Watchers in Växjö, Sweden lined up for their weigh-in when they heard a bang as the floor came away from the walls of their meeting room.

“We suddenly heard a huge thud – we almost thought it was an earthquake and everything flew up in the air. The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls” one of those present told the Sm√•landsposten newspaper.

As the Weight Watchers abandoned the room other parts of the floor started to give way.  Undaunted as no one was injured, the club member continued their weigh-in in the hallway.

Even Animals End Up on a Diet

Chubby and overweight animals in a South Korean zoo will be put on a diet after almost ten years of eating processed foods. Animals at the Seoul Grand Park Zoo have been eating more than the normal amount of food intake per day so the animal management has decided to increase the amount of their natural food intake and decrease the processed foods.

Park Seon-Deok, a member of the animal management team said, ‘Feeding the animals according to the 1998 guidelines made the animals overweight.  Horses, for example, like processed food better than grass, which is what they would be eating in the wild.’

Funny Food jokes on Eating Habits

We all have strange obsessions, but this habit is gut-churning. Let us introduce food jokes on bad eating habits.

Eat Dirt – Strange But True

This is one of the best food jokes in this article!

Woman eating dirt

Chinese Girl Eats Dirt

The 18-year-old from Inner Mongolia was taken to Beijing by her parents, who wanted to know why she finds dirt appetizing.

She told Chinese television that she started the habit when she was just 7 years old when she consumed dirt attached to the grassroots.

Yellow mud is her favorite. Her eating habits have caused problems for the family’s next-door neighbor, who has a mud roof. Chinese television reported that the woman couldn’t help herself and kept eating his roof.

More Funny Eating Habits from China

The picture itself is one of the funny jokes.

Chinaman Eating

Eccentric Chinaman

Li Sanju claims to have survived eating nothing but leaves and grass for two years. The Chinaman from Niuwei village, Guangdong province, says he is perfectly happy with his unusual diet. He informed Will and Guy that he looks no different to other people in his village – but admits he does smell strongly of grass. ‘I watched a TV program which said a man can live more than 10 days without food but just water, so I thought I would try living on the natural things near my home,’ he said.

At first, he tried eating grass in a field like cattle – but it tasted bitter and made him ill, we have found, ‘I suspect that the field grass has been polluted by pesticides, so I changed to the plants in the mountain behind my house, and I never had any problem,’ he added. ‘I used to be known
as a sick man in the village, always in hospital, but since I changed my diet, I’ve never been to see the doctors. Even the tumor on my right foot
has disappeared.’

The Local Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital said most of the plants were edible and not toxic but he did not recommend Li’s diet to us, which is a great relief.

People Do Have the Funniest Eating Habits [thanks to Frank Sabatini Jnr]:

  • A meal in Istanbul could include lamb eyeballs dressed in a traditional Turkish cream sauce.
  • In Central and South America, iguana meat is sautéed and turned into a gastronomic casserole that is eaten with bread or rice.
  • Australian aboriginals commonly eat chopped, marinated kangaroo tails and sugar ants.
  • Pickled ram’s testicles and decomposed shark meat are among the traditional Icelandic foods that present special challenges for tourists.
  • In parts of Asia and Africa, locusts are typically dredged in wild honey to give them extra flavor.
  • And people still reportedly breed dogs for food throughout severely impoverished areas of Korea and China. North American and UK animal rights groups are working to ban the practice.
  • Bear paws and filets remain a highly prized dinner in Russia and Eastern Europe.
  • Fresh snake meat is readily available in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Chinese delicacies include shark fin soup and pigeon soup, while we here in the West have a fondness for goose liver pâté and frog legs.

Food jokes as English Idioms

The next section of food jokes are funny idioms related to food.

English Menu (Ingliz Menuyu)

William Dalrymple was born in Scotland and has become an internationally acclaimed writer of many travel books.  He wrote a book, at the age of 22, called ‘In Xanadu’ which was published in 1989.

In his book Dalrymple recorded various experiences he and his companion had while travelling in Asia; this example is a menu he came across in a restaurant. It’s a wonderful example of how to mangle English and is best appreciated by reading it out loud.  However, the funny English idioms can be deciphered, and even better, bet the food was delicious.

Alternative Chinese English Menu – Funny English Idioms

One of the best part of today’s food jokes is this list:

Chinese Menu

Restaurant Correction

This correction is also an integral part of our food jokes.

Restaurant Correction

The above restaurant correction reminds me of the reverse story.  A man sent his wife into a Chinese restaurant to ask for 20 No 6.  Instead of returning with one packet of cigarettes, she came out with 20 portions of egg-fried rice.

Pigeon’s Milk

Pigeon’s milk is one of the desserts on offer at a Latvian restaurant. According to the Daily Mirror, the menu also offers a main course of ‘grilled surgeon’.

Travel Trade Gazette has collected confused hotel notices and menus that holidaymakers have spotted:

  • A Polish restaurant offers: “roasted duck let loose, beef rashers beaten in the country people’s fashion”.
  • While a Thai hotel told guests: ‘do not bring solicitors into your room’.

Inglish Humor

Here are some Indian English funnies that arise from shortening English words. We’re listing them among our English food jokes.

  • Subsi = subsidiary
  • Supli = supplementary
  • Soopi = superintendent
  • Princi = principle
  • Gen. Sec. or G. Sec. = General Secretary
  • Soc. Sec. = Social Secretary

These funny English idioms apparently first appeared in the New Yorker magazine in the 1980s and is an attempt by Bodrum airlines of Turkey to translate their regulations into English for inclusion on their passenger tickets. Despite their problems with the language nearly all of these can be understood.

Funny Food Jokes and Amusing Pictures

Will and Guy have a wide range of food jokes, funny pictures, and amusing stories.  Variety is the spice of life.

Well Done?

Kevin was furious when his steak arrived cooked too rare.

‘Waiter,’ Kevin shouted, ‘Didn’t you hear me say “well done”?’

‘Of course I did, sir, I can’t thank you enough, sir,’ replied the waiter. ‘I hardly ever get a compliment.’

Eating Out

Last week, Alex and Ann went to a restaurant for dinner in Albert Road, Southsea. They scanned the menu, then they promptly ordered two steaks.

The waiter duly brought the steaks with fries and salad. Alex quickly picked out the bigger steak for himself

Ann was decidedly unhappy about that, ‘When are you going to learn to be polite, Alex?’ she complained.

Alex responded by asking, ‘If you had the chance to pick first, which one would you pick?’

‘The smaller piece, of course,’ replied Ann.

‘Then what are you whining about then? The smaller piece is what you want, right?’ Alex concluded.

Amusing Dieting Yarns

Below, you can take a look at some of our food jokes expressed as dieting yarns:

So Hungry I Could Eat the Plate

Chen Liang-erh, 50, an amateur inventor living in Taipei, Taiwan has perfected an edible plate. It is made from wheat grain, and he plans to mass-produce it with other edible crockery including cups, bowls, and food containers.

Diet Food jokes

The best way to lose weight is by skipping ….. snacks and desserts.

One guideline applies to fat and thin people alike: if you’re thin, don’t eat fast. If you’re fat, don’t eat – FAST.

Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually shut her up with cookies……….

A women’s group was discussing diet tips. When it was mentioned that getting enough exercise and sleep were just as important as watching food intake, one woman responded with surprise that sleep was a factor. Another replied, ‘Of course, sleep is a factor. The only time I’m not eating is when I’m sleeping.’

One of life’s mysteries is how a two-pound box of candy can make a woman gain five pounds.

The only exercise I get is jumping to conclusions.

Half A Diet is Better than No Diet at All

And that’s not among our food jokes, that’s the truth!

Tea sign

Genevieve belongs to our Diet Club and she was lamenting that she had gained weight.

She told us that she had made her family’s favorite and luscious cake over the weekend, and added that they’d eaten half of it at dinner that evening.

The next day, Genevieve continued, she kept staring at the other half, until finally she cut a thin slice for herself. One slice led to another, and soon the whole cake had vanished.

She went on to tell us how upset she was with her lack of willpower, and how she knew her husband would be so disappointed. Everyone commiserated until someone asked what her husband said when he found out.

Genevieve smiled broadly and quipped, ‘He never found out. I made another cake and ate half of that too.’

Green Credentials

My friend Ben is well known for his rather ‘in-your-face’ eco-friendly and green credentials.

We were eating at a Chinese restaurant in the High Street when an elderly waiter set chopsticks at our place. Ben made a point of reaching into her purse and pulling out her pair with a flourish.

‘As a keen environmentalist*,’ Ben declared loudly to no one in particular, ‘I do not approve of destroying bamboo forests for throwaway
utensils.’

The waiter inspected his chopsticks. ‘Ah lovely, very beautiful,’ he said politely. ‘Ivory.’

*Fact: China uses 45 billion chopsticks per year. 25 million trees are chopped down to make them!

Funny Food and Diet Trivia

Will and Guy have to be honest and tell you that laughter on food jokes will not enable you to lose weight. However, if you feel fed up with all the pressures of dieting perhaps you can laugh on these food jokes, or at least smile at some of our random Food and Diet Trivia.

Real Life at Drive-thru Burger Bars

Six one and half a dozen of the other.

Yvonne arrived at the Whopper Burger bar and read on the menu that she could order 6, 9, or 12 chicken nuggets. She promptly and politely requested half a dozen nuggets.

‘We don’t do half a dozen nuggets,’ responded the teenager at the counter rather tersely. ‘You don’t?’ Yvonne inquired quizzically.

‘We only have six, nine, or twelve,’ came the reply from the youngster.

‘Right,’ said Yvonne with a broad smile, ‘Let me get this straight. I can’t order half a dozen nuggets, but I can order six?’

‘Correct,’ was the bland reply.

Yvonne shook her head rather sadly and ordered six nuggets.

Will and Guy’s Philosophy

Funny Food Jokes and Stories

Here is our collection of amusing food jokes and stories, involving waiters, waitresses, pizza, eggs, and more types of food.

Only in America – Allegedly True Food jokes From The USA

FBI agents conducted a raid of a psychiatric hospital in San Diego that was under investigation for medical insurance fraud. After hours of reviewing thousands of medical records, the dozens of agents had worked up quite an appetite. The agent in charge of the investigation called a nearby pizza parlor with the delivery service to order a quick dinner for his colleagues.

The following telephone conversation took place and was recorded by the FBI because they were taping all conversations at the hospital:

Agent: Hello. I’d like to order 19 large pizzas and 67 cans of soda.

Pizza Man: And where would you like them delivered?
Agent: We’re over at the psychiatric hospital.

Pizza Man: The psychiatric hospital?
Agent: That’s right. I’m an FBI agent.

Pizza Man: You’re an FBI agent?
Agent: That’s correct. Just about everybody here is.

Pizza Man: And you’re at the psychiatric hospital?
Agent: That’s correct. And make sure you don’t go through the front doors. We have them locked. You’ll have to go around to the back service entrance to deliver the pizzas.

Pizza Man: And you say you’re all FBI agents?
Agent: That’s right. How soon can you have them here?

Pizza Man: Everyone at the psychiatric hospital is an FBI agent?
Agent: That’s right. We’ve been here all day and we’re starving.

Pizza Man: How are you going to pay for all of this?
Agent: I have my checkbook right here.

Pizza Man: And you’re all FBI agents?
Agent: That’s right. Everyone here is an FBI agent. Can you remember to bring the pizzas and sodas to the service entrance in the rear? We have the front doors locked.

Pizza Man: I don’t think so. *Click*

More Funny Food jokes and Stories

Let’s continue telling more food jokes:

Trouble Ordering

I’ve always ordered my soft drinks in a simple way, e.g. ‘A Coke, please.’

Lately, though, this hasn’t seemed to work. Waitresses now often respond, ‘I’m sorry, we don’t have Coke. We have Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, 7-Up, Hartridges, Virgin Cola, Sprite, and Red Bull.’

Exhausted by listening to the long list of soft drinks, I thought I’d make life easier. So one day I simply asked the snack bar staff at a cinema for a ‘dark, cold, carbonated beverage.’

The young man behind the counter smiled and asked, ‘Yes sir, and would you like a long, thin, cylindrical plastic sucking device with that?’

Vegetarians

I am not a vegetarian because I love animals, I am a vegetarian because I hate plants. – A Whitney Brown.

Ice Cream Not Smooth Enough

Manuel Oliveira owned an ice cream shop in Mérida, Venezuela; and he reported that he sold 567 flavors, including onion, chili, beer, eggplant [aubergine], smoked trout, spaghetti and parmesan, chicken with rice, and spinach. He said some flavors fail; he once abandoned avocado ice cream and tossed out 99 pounds of it, because it wasn’t smooth enough.

And How Do You Like Your Chicken?

Victor saw a sign in the window of Barney’s Restaurant, Droitwich Spa, UK, that read ‘Unusual Breakfast’. Always an adventurous eater, Victor went in and sat down. The waitress brought him his pot of tea and asked him what he wanted to eat.

‘What does your unusual breakfast include?’ he asked politely.

‘Baked tongue of chicken!’ she replied with a grin.

‘Baked tongue of chicken?… baked tongue of chicken! Do you have any idea how disgusting that is? I would never even consider eating anything that came out of a chicken’s mouth!’ Victor cried.

Undaunted, the waitress asked, ‘What would you like then?’

‘Oh, just bring me some scrambled eggs,’ Victor replied.

Tale of the Food Survey

Last month a worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:

“Could you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?”

The survey was a massive failure for the following reasons:

  1. In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what “honest” meant;
  2. In Western Europe they didn’t know what “shortage” meant;
  3. In Africa they didn’t know what “food” meant;
  4. In China they didn’t know what “opinion” meant;
  5. In the Middle East they didn’t know what “solution” meant;
  6. In South America they didn’t know what “please” meant;
  7. In the USA they didn’t know what “the rest of the world” meant;
  8. In the UK they hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent.

A Tasty Snack?

UK border officials detained a 22-year-old man from Burkina Faso for trying to smuggle 94 kilos (over 200 pounds) of dried caterpillars through
customs. His excuse? He thought it would be OK as they were food for ‘personal consumption’.

Unlike the 47-year-old from Togo who, when it was discovered that he had 33 pounds of live, fuzzy caterpillars in his suitcase, tried to eat as many as possible to show that they were harmless. He added that they were a snack that he was addicted to.

In some countries caterpillars are considered a delicacy……I’ll stick to chocolate!

Hope you agree that this story is one of the best food jokes on this page.

Funny Pictures of Egg Tattoo

Will and Guy have no tattoos at all; this is a matter of choice.

In the UK tattoos are quite popular with some people. However, few people have their heads tattooed. Also, not many tattoos can be said to be funny. We have chosen a few that we would like to share with you.

Below, you can find some funny food jokes represented on pictures.

Funny food jokes of the Egg Tattoo

This man has had a tattoo of a full breakfast created on his head.  He was selected after a plea for a volunteer.  Reports from BBC News online.

Egg Tattoo

It took tattoo artist Blane Dickinson, 32, from Penmaenmawr, Conwy, Wales, six hours to complete the bacon, eggs, sausages, and beans with cutlery.  Volunteer Dwayne Gilbey, 19, from Coventry, said he wanted to take part in something different. Mr Dickinson said he next wanted to find someone willing to have their face tattooed on the back of their head.

Mr Gilbey, who already has four tattoos, said, ‘My friends and family keep asking me why I’m doing this. For me, it’s just something different that has never been done before. My mum is really unhappy about it and threatened to throw me out but I don’t think she’ll go through with it.’

Egg Tattoo with fork

He volunteered for the tattooing, which took place at The Albion pub in Conwy.

The tattooist added, ‘I’m not charging Dayne but this tattoo would normally cost around £350 [$700] and must definitely be the most expensive breakfast he has ever had.’

Egg Tattoo With Knife and Fork

Here is another example of funny jokes about a breakfast tattoo.  This one not only has the eggs and bacon but also includes a knife and fork.

Funny food jokes – Cormorant Recipe

As Will and Guy often muse; ‘Humor is a fickle animal’.  Well here is an example of humor that catches you unexpectedly.  The Cormorant Recipe comes from a bygone era: Countryman’s Cooking, by W.M.W Fowler circa 1965.

Cormorant Recipe

Cormorant Bird

Having shot your cormorant, hold it well away from you as you carry it home; these birds are exceedingly verminous and the lice are said to be not entirely host-specific. Hang up by the feet with a piece of wire, soak in petrol, and set on fire. This treatment both removes most of the feathers and kills the lice.

When the smoke has cleared away, take the cormorant down and cut off the beak. Send this to the local Conservancy Board who, if you are in the right area, will give you 3/6d or sometimes 5/- for it. Bury the carcass, preferably in light, sandy soil, and leave it there for a fortnight. This is said to improve the flavor by removing, in part at least, the taste of rotting fish.

Dig up and skin and draw the bird. Place in a strong salt and water solution and soak for 48 hours. Remove, dry, stuff with whole, unpeeled onions: the onion skins are supposed to bleach the meat to a small extent so that it is very dark brown instead of being entirely black.

Simmer gently in seawater, to which two tablespoons of chloride of lime have been added, for six hours. This has a further tenderizing effect. Take out of the water and allow to dry, meanwhile mixing up a stiff paste of methylated spirit and curry powder.  Spread this mixture liberally over the breast of the bird.

Finally, roast in a very hot oven for three hours.  The result is unbelievable.  Throw it away. Not even a starving vulture would eat it.



Footnote
: This account is not to everyone’s taste.  However, can top that Cormorant Recipe?  If so send us your food jokes, stories or recipes!

Charles writes in.  ‘There was a time when I got paid for shooting Cormorants.  Then after the war, they stopped that earner.  Blow me, now they are prosecuting me for shooting the wretched bird.  This country [England] is going to the dogs.’

Addendum: You would not believe it, but just around the corner from where Will lives in Portchester is The Cormorant pub.  But no, this bird is not on the menu!

Ten-in-one Swan Recipe

This Elizabethan delicacy would feed 25 people.  The swan would weigh about 30lbs before it had the other foul inserted.

  1. Swan stuffed with:
  2. Goose
  3. Duck
  4. Mallard
  5. Guinea fowl
  6. Chicken
  7. Pheasant
  8. Partridge
  9. Pigeon
  10. Woodcock

In the time of Elizabeth the 1st, the ten-in-one swan would be roasted all day, and then once cooked thoroughly, the feathers would be replaced to make an attractive centerpiece for the meal.

Queen Elizabeth II Supervises Swan-upping

In July 2009 The present Queen Elizabeth supervised the annual Swan Upping census on the river Thames, near Windsor, England.  This was the first time in living memory that the monarch had visited the Thames to watch the swan-uppers count her swans.  In England, the swan is a protected bird, which only the Queen is allowed to kill.

More Foody Humour

Here are some more short food jokes:

  • You know the restaurant has a clown as a chef when the food tastes funny.
  • Bakeries show how well their business is doing with a pie chart.
  • Old bakers never die, they just keep making lots of dough.

Strange but true giant pumpkin picture

Further food jokes are represented on pictures below.

Strange But True Story about 88 Stone Pumpkin

Giant Pumpkin

Fact is always stranger than fiction.  Here is Martin with his record-breaking pumpkin.

Bavarian Martin Reiss planted the pumpkin at the end of April and harvested it in September when it was 88 days old.  This pumpkin set a new European record for pumpkins.

Giant Mushroom

Mushrooms are also integral part of the best food jokes.

Giant Mushroom

Just the job of stuffing your giant pumpkin.

A more than 20-kilo (41-lb) mushroom has been picked in a forest in Mexico’s southernmost state of Chiapas. The white mushroom, macrocybe titans, measured a towering 70 cm (27 in) tall, was found near Tapachula, near the border with Guatemala.

Guy the Botanist

Guy had a life as a Botanist, so I know how difficult it is to grow plants.  Our department had special growth chambers with zillions of tubes of artificial light to simulate sunlight.  We students nicknamed them ‘ death chambers’ because many plants would not grow in these supposedly ideal conditions. To be fair the truth was often absent-minded professors used to sow plants, but then forget to water them.

Car Mashed By Potatoes A True, Short, Funny Story

Potato Truck

A tractor pulling a trailer containing several tonnes of potatoes through Lincoln City center [England] lost its load when the trailer toppled over. A nearby parked, but unoccupied, car was severely mashed.

Although the car was squashed, we can tell you that nobody was hurt in the accident; although onlookers told us that they thought the tractor driver may have had his chips.*

The spuds were shoveled back into the trailer manually, and it continued merrily on its way. Just another true, funny story from Britain’s countryside.

*An informal British phrase which means he may get into trouble…..ie….lose his job.

Mushy Peas Shut A1 Road

Peas

The lorry spilled its load of peas on the A1 A major trunk route was closed after a lorry and a bus collided, spilling tons of peas onto the road.  Motorists had to steer clear of the A1 near the Great Gonerby roundabout in Lincolnshire after the southbound carriageway was closed.

Some 18 tons of the vegetable were shed in the incident, leading to long delays spilling over into Nottinghamshire.

Emergency services which attended the scene say nobody was seriously hurt in the collision.

A police spokesman said the road has since re-opened to traffic.

Surprising Food Pictures

Eau de Stilton

Stilton Perfume

Stilton has launched a blue cheese perfume.  Will it catch on?  The makers of the famously smelly Stilton blue cheese have produced their own perfume.

The face of Eau de Stilton – Cat Deeley

Cat Deeley

The manufacturers have asked Cat Deeley to be the face of their Eau de Stilton. The makers say that: ‘Eau de Stilton recreates the earthy and fruity aroma of the cheese, in an eminently wearable perfume’.

The perfume is blended by a Manchester-based aromatics company and includes a symphony of natural base notes including yarrow, angelica seed, clary sage, and valerian’. It was commissioned by the Stilton Cheese Makers Association (SCA) as part of a campaign to persuade more people to eat their product.

Nigel White, of the SCA, dismissed the suggestions that it might not be the most alluring of scents. Blue Stilton cheese has a very distinctive, mellow aroma and our perfumier was able to capture the key essence of that scent and recreate it in what is an unusual but highly wearable perfume, ‘he said.’ While we don’t have quite as generous a budget as some of her other endorsements, we would love Miss Deeley to be the face of Eau de Stilton and look forward to hearing what she thinks of the scent.’

Whopper Burger Eating Competition Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub

Whopper Burger Eating Competition

Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, already held the title by eating a 6lb burger; owners thought a 15-pound burger-eating competition would prove an even bigger attraction, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Giant Burger

Diners who can finish the £25 [$44] whopper burger in under five hours win £200 [$350USD, a T-shirt, and their name posted on the pub’s wall of fame. They also got the burger for free.’ Every restaurant needs a gimmick – ours is big burgers’, said Dennis Liegey III, son of the restaurant’s owner.

Visitors come from as far away as Australia and California just to see the 6-pounders and try eating burgers this big. The new burger, dubbed the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, is as big around as the inside of a car tire. Each one comes with a cup and a half of mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup, a head of lettuce, two onions, three tomatoes, and 25 slices of cheese.

Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub – Whopper Burger Eating Follow-up

Giant Whopper Burger

Mayor Patty Gilliland poses with Denny Leigey, owner of Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, and the restaurant’s record-breaking whopper burger in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, USA.

The newest addition to the menu at Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub is one meaty monstrosity of a burger. The Beer Barrel Main Event Charity Burger weighs in at 123 pounds.[8st.11lbs] The sizable sandwich features an 80-pound beef patty, along with a pound each of lettuce, ketchup, relish, mustard, and mayonnaise, 160 slices of cheese, up to five onions, and 12 tomatoes records the Houston Chronicle.

It’s topped with a couple of pounds of banana peppers and 33 pickles, then sandwiched into a 30-pound bun. There’s a large price tag, too for eating a burger like this: $379.[Almost £200]

The Clearfield pub unveiled the menu item over the weekend. Restaurant owner Denny Leigey said he plans to submit paperwork on his colossal culinary creation to the Guinness Book of World Records. The burger’s cooks maintain it shatters the world record of 105 pounds shared by two restaurants in New Jersey and Thailand. Leigey said he didn’t know how many calories were stuffed into his latest gigantic entrée.

Chef and whopper burger

Whopper Burger World Record September 2009

This vast, terrifying meat pile is officially the world’s biggest burger, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records – weighing in at more
than 13st.

The stomach-busting whopper burger sells for a wallet-busting $499[£300] at Mallie’s Sports Grill and Bar in Southgate, Michigan, USA. Restaurant owner Steve Mallie said it took eight hours to bake a bun big enough to hold the 185lb [84kg] burger.

See right how it dwarfs the previous Whopper Burger record holder.

Previous Whopper Burger Record February 2008:

Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub in Pennsylvania may have lost its claim to be the makers of the largest burger if Steve Mallie of Mallie’s Sports Bar and Grill in Detroit, Michigan, USA, has any say in the matter.

Steve’s burger weighs in at a hefty 134lb for the burger, slapped inside a 50lb bun, and needs to be ordered 24 hours in advance, and eating the burger will cost $350 [£176 in the UK].

The mighty meal was dubbed ‘The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger’.  Will and Guy wonder how far this whopper burger-eating competition will go.

Another Kind of Whopper!

Burger King’s Left-handed Whopper:

In 1998 Burger King published a full-page advertisement in USA Today announcing a new item to their menu: a ‘Left-Handed Whopper’ specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new Whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers.

The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, ‘many others requested their own ‘right-handed’ version.’

‘We don’t do half a dozen nuggets,’ responded the teenager at the counter rather tersely. ‘You don’t?’ Yvette inquired quizzically.

‘We only have six, nine, or twelve,’ came the reply from the youngster.

‘Right,’ said Yvette with a broad smile, ‘Let me get this straight. I can’t order half a dozen nuggets, but I can order six?’ ‘Correct,’ was the bland reply.

Yvette shook her head rather sadly and ordered six nuggets.

Fried or Frazzled?

When driving home from Plymouth to Cheltenham, Jerry had an enormous desire to eat some chips. He pulled his car over into a ‘drive-thru’ burger place with an internationally recognizable name and logo.

Jerry’s conversation then went as follows: Jerry: ‘I’d like a large fries please.’ Counter staff: ‘Would you like fries with that?’

Jerry was somewhat confused with this response so he told the staff no. Jerry was then told to pull ahead which he did and then the staff member asked Jerry why he was still waiting there. Counter staff: ‘I thought you didn’t want fries.’

Jerry: ‘No, I ordered a large fries.’ Counter staff: ‘OK. Do you want fries with that?’

Exhausted by now with the circulatory nature of the conversation Jerry decided that since saying no the last time had got him nowhere he thought he’d better say yes this time.  When the food arrived Jerry was given two large fries.

Throwaway Burger

Throwing a cheeseburger at a doctor because he is driving too slowly is not an offence say the Czech police after Dr Hannes Kohl complained about a lorry driver. Dr Kohl, who was hit on the head by the burger thrown from the truck, was outraged by what he considered an unprovoked attack.

‘I complained to the Czech police but they told me it was not an offense to throw a burger at someone, and my insurance company also refused to recompense me even though there was melted cheese and ketchup on my suit and all over my car,’ the Austrian doctor complained bitterly.

Burgers Plus Creates Wedding Bliss For Couple

Burger Wedding

‘Aren’t People Funny?’ say Will and Guy.

Tom and Kerry Watts from Poringland, Norfolk, England, held their wedding reception at Zaks American Restaurant and so it was appropriate, say Will and Guy, that their wedding cake should be a giant cheeseburger made from a secret Zaks recipe.

The mammoth 19kg [42lb] cheeseburger, which was nearly half a meter wide and weighed the equivalent of about 100 quarter-pounders, was the highlight of the couple’s wedding reception after they got married at nearby All Saints Church. It was garnished with 12 iceberg lettuces, 12 onions, 30 tomatoes, 48 slices of dill pickle, and 2kg of cheese, along with a liter of ketchup and a liter of mayonnaise. The finished burger had to be cooked for three hours. Three chefs were needed to lift it out of the oven before it could be put into the specially made sesame-seeded bun, from Merv’s Hot Bread Kitchen, in Wymondham. The bun weighed 5kg and staff had to cut it in half using a saw.

It took butcher John Baxter, from Burgers Plus, in Norwich, a whole day to create and shape the giant beef patty, weighing 400oz when uncooked. He said, ‘It was the biggest burger I have ever made. It looked like a big car wheel! It was two-and-a-half inches thick and I had to have a special stainless steel tin made for it.’ Mr Watts, a 36-year-old fire-fighter, laughed, ‘Not only did I get to marry the woman of my dreams but I also got to have the burger of my dreams on the same day. I could not believe the size of the burger. It was just incredible. Everything has just been amazing. It was the best day ever.

Guy and Will are hopeful that they will discover the cost of creating such a monstrosity.
