Loved the portion on how various people would answer the riddle, "Why did the chicken cross the road." Example: Bill Clinton: "I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What do you mean by 'chicken?' Could you define 'chicken' please."

And you are reminded, "REMEMBER: 'Stressed' spelled backward is 'desserts'.

[Dangit! Getting hungrier all the time. You're torturing me!]

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the next post so it won't be called a chicken anymore. Cackle, cackle.

When attemting to access "chowhound" I got a message that said I was not "authorized" to view it. Do you have to know the chef or tip the maitre d' or what?

Dear Father Steve,

I just clicked on the link and didn't have a problem accessing the Chowhound site. Could it be how your computer is set up? (The site includes discussions of good places to eat without all the hype.)

Best regards,
WW

Chowhounds know where the good stuff is, and they never settle for less than optimal deliciousness, whether dining in splanky splendor or grabbing a quick slice of pizza. They are the one in ten who live to eat.

We're not talking about foodies. Foodies eat where they're told; they eagerly follow trends and rarely go where Zagat hasn't gone before. Chowhounds, on the other hand, blaze trails, combing gleefully through neighborhoods for hidden culinary treasure.


That's the opening for link.
No foodie I ... a real chowhound!!!!

AnnaS : from your super dooper links I'd say you qualify as a Chowhound, too!
I've found that - *sometimes* - when a place is "discovered" the food deteriorates .... partly because the place is not used to serving that many customers.
Those amazing ones that cope and flourish - *sometimes* - become so crowded, snooty and expensive I can no longer afford to go!

Anytime you run across a great Chow Palace, Bets, do let me know!
