Quinn on Nutrition: Silly food jokes

April 3, 2017

My friend, Betty, is truly younger than her years. Part of her secret, I believe, lies in the humor she finds in living. So in celebration of April 1, here are some food funnies from Betty and others who brighten my life:

óWine pairing rules for caveman in the Stone Age: "If it tries to eat you, serve with red. If it runs away, serve with white."

óAn elderly couple had dinner at another coupleís house. After the meal, the wives went into the kitchen.

The two gentlemen were talking and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly."

The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"

The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know Ö the one thatís red and has thorns."

"Do you mean a rose?"

"Yes, thatís the one," replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, whatís the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"

óWhy did the pig go into the kitchen? He felt like bacon.

óTwo robins are sitting in a tree. "Iím really hungry," says the first one.

"Me, too," says his pal. "Letís fly down and find some lunch."

So they fly to the ground and find some worms. After eating their fill, the first robin says to his friend, "Iím so full I donít think I can fly back up to the tree branch."

"Me neither," says the second robin. "Letís just lie here and bask in the sun."

So they fall asleep and a big tomcat sneaks up and gobbles them down.

After his meal, he washes his face and says with satisfaction, "I just love baskiní robins!"

As Betty would say, "You donít stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing."
