Gut Rumbles

mmmm... good!

Here is a wonderful delicacy. I can almost smell them cooking just by looking at the picture, and that is a mighty fine aroma.

Heh. Read some of the yankee comments on that post. What a sad, benighted bunch they are...


Got 10 pounds today and they are cooking now, 1.49 a pound.

I have to tell you they don't look that good to these benighted eyes but I've never tried them. Heck, I've never even heard of them until I met you folks.

Never had a chance to try them (no green ones around here), but they look interesting.

I just left a Yankee comment over there.

Leave the yankees to their scrapple.

Scrapple? Nah.

In Jersey, Taylor Ham is King.

I was born and raised in the midwest but have lived in the south for the past 22 years. I had never heard of boiled peanuts until I crossed the Mason-Dixon line and although they were different than anything I had ever tried, I liked them. This brings me to a broader subject. You speak of yankee vs. northern differences frequently but I question your qualifications. My experiences, having lived in both places almost exactly the same amount of time is that neither culture is better than the other. They're each unique to themselves. There's good and not so good on both sides. Neither is better than the other.. Take those Georgia grown tomatos that you brag on as an example. My opinion is that they're good but a big fat tomato grown in the breadbasket of America runs circles around your tomato any day of the week. Of course, folks up there are totally missing the food boat when it comes to boiled peanuts.

"My experiences, having lived in both places..."

You said you lived in the Midwest. Go live in Jersey for 22 years and get back to us on the differences you see.

Oh red! It was just a perspective on tomatos and boiled peanuts! Apparently you have to be a twatburger on every subject. That's okay, honey. I know you can't help it.

Wow. Tell your therapist I said "hi".

Allow me to apologize for having the temerity to point out a massive geographical and social error. I didn't know you were sensitive enough to cry into your pillow over an such innocent correction. I should have known that in this day and age people would rather operate in the benighted condition of piss-ignorance rather than admit they might not know everything. That might hurt the self-esteem, or some such. Again, I apologize.


Interesting. I'm not up on my modern junior high insults, so what exactly would a "twatburger" be?

Posted by: red on June 8, 2006 01:13 PM

The Filipinos boil peanuts too. Sorry, but I like my peanuts dry and my women wet....

How the hell did "twatburger" become akin to BOILED PEANUTS in someone's twisted imagination????

Never mind. It came from a yankee.
