I went to the cinema on Saturday and were perplexed by some of the foods sold in the Toronto concessions of late. Burger King? Taco Bell? Pizza? A bit messy in a theatre seat, don’t you think?
Here are some other foods I hope will never be sold at the movies:
- Rice Krispies
- Floating Sushi Bar
- Whole Main Lobster
- Flaming Cheese (Opa!)
- Spaghetti and Meatballs
- Noodle Soup
- Side of Beef
- Beer Bong
- Open Salad Bar
- Raw Oysters
- Spicy Buffalo Wings
- Dim Sum
- Sloppy Joes
- 20lb. Turkey Dinner with all the fixin’s
- Anything with Gravy
Memphis-style wet barbecued ribs.
sorry, Dave and natalie
Older generation of Taiwanese movie theaters do serve beef, wings and dim sum. As matter in fact there is planty of chinese treats that will gross out most westerners. Well I like them.
Rocky Mountain Oysters; Cow Tounge; Monkey Brains; and My Mother’s Cooking!
Many Of they movies I have watched lately would have benefitted from a few glasses of absinthe before I had to endure them.
I’ll skip on the steaming piles of Sauerkraut/chitlins/monkey eyeballs/and yams.
The no yams rule is now in effect.
I do think bowls of chili with cheese bits on top would be a unique theatre treat, but 2/3rds of America would slurp and bang their spoons on the bowls. Damn uncouth vermin!
Could be worse. You could be thinking it’s the Bee’s Knees.
You forgot choc-top icecreams and jaffas.
Choc-tops used to melt quicker than people could eat them leading to icecream everywhere.
jaffas used to either be rolled down between the seats and aisles or generally used as missles to be liberaly chucked all over the picture theatre and at each other.
What the heck is Durian? (/too lazy to look it up)
Btw, Dave, the theaters I went to in Cali pretty much served everything except Grandma and the kitchen sink. Nothing like seeing a movie where all the attendees are hopped up on espresso and Milk Duds.
For a discription of Durian, go to http://www.durianpalace.com and click on the question mark. If you are so inclined, join their yahoo group.
Would that be SFW, frisko? Can’t risk any freaky links here at the salt mines.:kiss:
Spam (except at Python movies)
Durian is a very stinky fruit, Esther. It’s reputed to smell like a cross between blue cheese and old sweat socks. Delish!
Mmm, mmm! Sounds nummy, Dave!
Just checked out the link, as well, and just have to ask, Why, God, why?
NO CONEY FRIES? Oh, of course you’re talking about Tronna — not Hamilton.
You left out Natto.
:boobs::boobs: I love these icons. Boobies!
Choc-tops? Natto? I feel so sheltered.:???:
Hopefully, Natto isn’t the same as Yatta!. I’d hate to have those guys in theater while I was trying to watch the latest Oscar-losing blockbuster.
Is Natto like NATO? 😛
The Ultimate Health Food: Natto
Let’s eat Natto once a day!
Let’s make Natto once a month!
Oh, that stuff! I saw some bit on Spring of Trivia (the strangest game show ever imported from Japan, shown on SpikeTV), where they took a bowl of natto, and scooped some of it up w/chopsticks. They then proceeded to stretch the gooey stuff that sticks it together to see how long it would take before the string broke. Eww.
Natto is not neato.:neutral::sad:
for those of you who have never experienced durian first hand at a packed outdoor cafe in singapore where everybody is eating and drinking it after a big cheap greasy meal of satay. it’s AWFUL.
Add poi to that list.
Steak: handling a knife and fork in the dark would be interesting.
Well if we’re going to ban steaks in the theatre, perhaps those smoky BBq’s should be banned as well.
I’d like to ban wrappers. No matter where I sit, someone always tears open a noisy wrapper right during the tense moments. 😕
Mandy, I didn’t realize that you and I went to the same theater. Next time you see those old guys who talked through most of ROTK, please beat them with their cane, and tell ’em I said ‘Hi’.:smile:
You know it, sister. :kiss:
Was it the same nutsack that kept passing gas during Fellowship of the Ring? The entire aisle was choking. 😐
Why limit ourselves to just noise? You can be offended through so many senses in a cinema.
How about a guy with an afro hairdo and big elbows, eating Roquefort cheese on crackers while kicking the seat in front of him?
I’ve had Durians. Some say they smell like open sewers but I disagree, I thought the smell far more like rotting fruit. My end conclusion on the taste was “Onion Custard.” I could, with perserverance, grow to like them….
Actually, many on your list sound like great theatre fare…especially absinthe.
The only reason to go to Canada is so you can get gravy anywhere you go! It’s the land of gravy…
