Let’s Munch – Tuesday Night Open thread

litre_cola

Good evening! It’s been awhile since I have pulled the night shift here so bear with me.

The 2nd night of the Westminster dog show is tonight but I figured that out far too late to write too much about it. I am a pug man, my best friend Oxipug left me a while back and I still think about him all the time. I have his ashes in an urn in the living room because, irrationally I don’t want him to go far. We plan on getting another dog when we get a house because with a toddler having to go down stairs to let the dog outside is a pain in the ass, especially in the winter months. When the time comes we will rescue a dog and you’re god damned right if there is a pug that needs saving that I will do it.

I have chosen snacks for the topic this evening. I like to shop at international markets and I gravitate for their junk food aisle. It has always been a passion of mine when backpacking (I read this as barebacking and that is way different). Why go for Pringles when you could try something new, and a lot of the time surprising? For Christmas my wife bought me a subscription to global snacks once a month which really excited me. If you have a subpar day at work, come home to a screaming kid you need a small slice of escapism. I smoke a bowl and have a snack. Here are a few that I have tried so far.

Sesame Cracker Sticks – Korea

I bought these at an Asian supermarket an they were not what I was expecting. I guess I thought that figured it would be a savoUry snack and it was not. The twists tasted like if a honey glazed donut was dried and twisted. I absolutely loved them and have bought them again since the initial purchase. They do kind of cut the roof of your mouth like Cap’n Crunch does but like the Cap’n very worth it.

Sibell – Braised Chicken Chips – France

Oh hell yes. These came in the first snack box and I knew they were going to kick ass. In the UK chicken chips are a thing so although I had never seen this brand there before I know they were going to be awesome.  They were phenomenal. Quite thin in comparison to “crisps” in the UK where they like em thiccc. I honestly wish I could find these somewhere in my city. They do have an option to order more from the snack box company but the prices are absurd.

Snackgold- Raspberry Frambuesa Chips – Italy

This also came in the 1st snack box. It was the December box which was from all over but normally you get snacks from one country. Like last month it was Poland and this month it will be France. I really didn’t know what to think of these. Did Italians actually like these? I have never seen a fruit flavoUred potato chip before. The verdict is that they taste weird. You definitely get the raspberry flavoUr but it’s salty and the tastes just do not make sense. I wouldn’t buy them again because there are far better options.

/That’s a lie, if I ever see them again I will give them another try because they just tasted so strange.

Krowka – Poland

The boxes come with candy I guess. This is vanilla fudge from Poland. It was fantastic. I have a good buddy from Poland and he goes home every summer. He’s doing so this year and I have requested these.

Things you can watch tonight.

If I am wrong which is probable look it up yourself.

Westminster Dog Show- It is on Sportsnet up here, and FS1 Down there

There is basketball, both the Professional (6 games) and the.paid under the table variety.

There is a lot of hockey (11 games) on tonight on various channels.

I am curious, what are your favoUrite snacks? Regional?, Run of the mill? Let’s start that debate on a slow Tuesday night.

I did a post with no Futbol talk. Huzzah!

So I see that Cheeto Mussolini has changed the near-60-year-old traditional livery on Air Force One, to make it “more American.”
Jesus fucking Christ.
Next up: replace the 50 stars on the US flag with fifty mini-portraits of the orange blob, to make it more American.
I swear, if this fucker doesn’t leave office voluntarily next year when he is voted out, which I really doubt he will, I’m just gonna smoke my Colt 1911 (yeah, democrats own guns too).

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

No, don’t do that! The proper way to go down swinging would be to attend a MAGA rally and get taken out in a 50-way crossfire that you start.

Is that space between the two circular formations called a “taint” or a “grundle”?

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

It’s the space between Cactus and Lacrosse.

yeah right

Actually it shows the effect of sea water level rise based on climate change in the bikini atoll. Could be Kwajalein but it might be closer to Midway. The good news is the US stored nuclear waste there from the atomic bomb tests from world war II. Nothing to see here folks. Water’s nice and warm though.

No silly, that structure is supposed to deteriorate.

So IA and NH are really gonna decide who gets gone? Nah. Two tiny lily-white states don’t mean jack.

I mean, other than Yang. Don’t let the math door hit ya etc.

If the Dems want to nominate an Asian-American as their candidate, they could do worse than George Takei.

Yeah, New Hampshire’s only a state because someone tricked Charlie I into making it a crown colony and Iowa has proven it literally doesn’t know how to count.

They don’t deserve this kind of power!

Wyoming has less population than many congressional districts in California, but they still have two whole senators. Your conclusion translates here as well.

As ridiculous as Double Pits to Shesty has played the Ice Giants might want to stop allowing 40+ SOG per game.

Viva La Tabula Raza

I don’t understand a single word of your post. I’m guessing since the word “Ice” is in there it has something to do with hockey, but that’s just a guess on my part. And, please don’t expend any effort on a translation, because I probably won’t understand that either.

Ken Baker? Glad that wasn’t a trend that took. Fuck working on a Bilgat or a Stevjob.

Warren and Biden are a distant 4th and 5th?!

King Hippo

yeah, game over for both. Warren will admit it first. Maybe Pete and Amy combine forces?

Redshirt

Sanders is “Left”. Buttigieg is “Normal Democrat”. What is Klobuchar?

Warren will admit it but it won’t be this one. She’ll go all in on Nevada and S. Carolina and if she wins, try to spin New Hamsphire as weird and Iowa as tainted.

King Hippo

Nice lady, mean boss.

So what you’re saying is if they’re still standing once its Ohio’s turn at this mess, I have to choose between the Democratic version of Diet Coke or Coke Zero.

King Hippo

pretty much. Or Bloomberg. He’s like Mitt Romney, but who really hates guns

Redshirt

I will vote for Trump before I vote for Bloomberg. At least he earned his nomination. He did it by hate and fear, but its more than anything Bloomberg’s done.

King Hippo

Dude. I told ya my cat’s name if you gets desperate for a write-in…

Redshirt

I’ll accept those negatives, but that just means gun to my head I gotta pick one. If November comes and those are my two choices, I’m heading north on I-75 et activer mon identité de sauvegarde au Canada.

Viva La Tabula Raza

It doesn’t really matter, because the TRUMP CRIME SYNDICATE is going to gin up some bullshit reason, like coronavirus, to declare a national emergency and postpone (i.e. cancel) the November elections. We already have the nation’s leader in office that will still be in charge when I die, 20 years hence, at age 80. If I’m lucky enough to even make it that long.

The last two months since my podiatric surgery, in which I have left the main level of my house exactly three times, makes me feel like Martin Sheen in the Saigon hotel room in the first scene of Apocalypse Now. Having to watch the collapse of our democracy has not helped my mindset.

Thank goodness I have a lot of friends that I can touch up to make liquor store runs infrequently enough that they don’t realize how much I am plowing through. Hope they all don’t put their heads together and figure out how much I’m going through, fuck an intervention. This timeline is so fucking depressing.

Elections are handled at the state level, though, so that would only work with MAGA states, which he’d WANT to have vote anyways.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Fuck it, I’m just going to write-in Vladimir Putin. Or vote Trump. Same fucking difference.

Redshirt

I’m going to write in “Destruct sequence 1, code 1-1 A”. I’ll need three other votes to complete the sequence but at least America’s Self Destruct Sequence will be partly started.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Dude, the fuse for America’s Self Destruct Sequence was lit in 1980 when Reagan was elected and the dismantling of the New Deal commenced. It’s just taken this long for it all to come to a head.

Thank you for identifying patient zero.

For weird snacks, the Japanese win walking away. I don’t think there’s anything on this list that I would even want to touch with my bare hands, let alone put in my mouth, except maybe the Diet Water. Couple of L_C’s listings I would at least try. Not these:

Smells like tuna, tastes like chicken.

I’m originally from SE Massachusetts, where they like their steaks cooked same as the current president does, and where putting cinnamon on oatmeal makes it too spicy.
I got into some of the wilder spicier foods during my 20’s through mid-50’s, and eating Tex-Mex here in South Central Texas (to the waiter: “bring me the caliente salsa, not that shit you serve to the gringos”) for the last almost 45 years, but now have to take it a lot easier on my GI tract, given the bariatric surgery last year. I miss the younger me that I could gastronomically abuse almost without penalty.

U*NC losing heavily to Wake Forest. Would drop them to 10-14, and Ol’ Roy has NEVAR had a losing season

I want a root beer and onion rings. I rarely do fast food chains but that shit is great.

BC Dick

I wish there were more chicken chips around. I’ve seen roast chicken lays but not a common variety. It seems like the French and Brits would have that kind of flavour down pat. I thought those sesame things looked savoury as well. I usually like that kind of thing.
My favourite – Hawkin’s cheezies. Right now I’m also into the Miss Vickie’s BBQ which I don’t usually go for and Old Dutch crunch jalapeno/cheddar.
Oh, and also absolutely any other snack I can drive down my gullet.
Recently confirmed that eating more than a few five-cent type candies give me horrendous stomach pain and an unquenchable desire to defecate what appears to be black driveway tar. So that’s now off the favourites menu and it hurts me so very much.

BC Dick

I DO WHAT I WANT!

Viva La Tabula Raza

This happened to me. Horrendous stomach pain followed by black feces, indicative of digested blood. Stomach ulcer. Get an endoscopy. I had the same symptoms, it can be treated easily and painlessly, most stomach ulcers are viruses and treatable with antibiotics.
