I recommend the fish [Nov. 19th, 2005|03:15 pm]

A few days ago, theferrett wrote about how his dream job was writing restaurant menus. Alas, his inability to secure such a gig has left the world bereft of his leet menu-elucidating skilz.

As the loving wife of this clever and witty man, I feel certain, however, that I have located an adequate substitute to the menus you would be reading, had a certain rodent weaseled his way into such a job. Those menu descriptions are penned by none other than Scott Adams, for the restaurant he owns in California. Ferrett would be hard-pressed to work in more puns-per-square inch than you will find here.

Honestly, he's trying TOO hard to be clever.

having trouble parsing this. ferrets are mustelidae (otters, ferrets, skunks), not rodents (rats & mice), I'm positive you have to know this, but the sentence seems to say the ferret is a rat? /me gives up.

Yes, but mustelidae lacks punch in such a sentence.

ah, literary license. "skunk" would have worked well there I think, heh.

Like theferrett doesn't have enough Scott Adams envy.

I hope you don't call out for Scott in your sleep...

She informed me the other day that Scott Adams had a larger penis than I did. I took it in stride.

Just wait until you get the Spam title telling you the same thing. :)

Maybe. But I challenge him to try.

I'm sure he's up to it:-)

That's reminiscent of the old menu at the former Quarrystone restaurant in Berea. :)
