Still Waiters Pun Deep

Today I think I'll continue Food NetWeek.

Once I get engrossed in a topic — like this past weekend when I searched for premiere dates for Food Network series — I sometimes suffer from tunnelvision. A Food Network skein inspired yesterday's post. And the Food Net also laid the foundation for tomorrow's and Friday's entries.

Why break the streak now.

Are you looking for a quick read that will make you smile and groan at the same time? Take a look at the ep names for ''Good Eats.'' Alton Brown amuses me. I'm not ashamed to admit it. I know he's wacky, but I never expected to find such punny ep titles. Here's a few morsels to whet your appetite:
  • Carrots: A Taproot Orange
  • The Big Chili
  • Chile's Angles
  • Do the Rice Thing
  • Dr. Strangeloaf
  • Egg-Files
  • In the Bulb of the Night (Garlic)
  • It's a Wonderful Cake
  • Mission: Poachable
  • My Big Fat Greek Sandwich
  • The Remains of the Bird
  • Romancing the Bird
  • True Grits
And those are just the names inspired by TV shows or movies.
