The sexy side of PEZ

Pokey_japan_2 A Sketch Towards a Taxonomy of Meta-Desserts, including seven Dessert Functions (Shrink, freeze, chill, put in food processor, heat, add leavening, and remove leavening)

I'm very impressed by the ingredients list on Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream: Cream, skim milk, sugar, egg yolks, natural vanilla. It's pretty rare to find any packaged food product with such a simple ingredients list

A visit to the PEZ museum in Easton, PA

Although we think of colorful and witty character heads when we think of PEZ, Haas's candy creation was specifically made and sold for an adult market until the 60's. To sell to adults, PEZ and its marketing team used sex to help sell their product: PEZ Girls

Don’t eat the bread

Bread_eating When I visited my family last month, I heard 2 typical Israeli stories that cracked me up:

1. My aunt was sitting next to a stranger at a big dinner, and he started munching on the appetizers, so she elbowed him and whispered: “Don’t eat the bread – there’s a lot of good food coming”…

2. My cousins had to drive somewhere and got lost, so they asked a stranger “How can we get to so-and-so street?”
His answer: “Why do you have to go there?”…

A Rose is A Rose

Two Japanese businessmen are talking during their afternoon dip in the hot baths at the Geisha house.
The first businessman says, “Hiroko-san, I have some unpleasant news for you. Your wife is dishonoring you.”
His friend can’t believe what he hears and asks for more information.
“It is as I said, Hiroko-san. Your wife is dishonoring you - she is making love every afternoon with a foreigner of the Jewish faith.”
Shocked, Hiroko-san decides to go home and confront his wife. He faces her and says, “I am told that you are dishonoring me with a foreigner of the Jewish faith.”
She replies, “That’s a lie. Where did you hear such mishegoss”

An old man sits down in the confessional at the church, and says, "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned."
The priest says, "Tell me of your sins, my son."
The old man says, "Well, Father, I'm 90 years old; I've been married to my wife for 70 years, and in all that time I've always been faithful. But last night, I made love to two beautiful 19-year-old girls! We did it three times!"
The priest says, "I see. Tell me, how long has it been since your last confession?"
The old man says, "Oh, I've never been to confession. I'm Jewish."
The priest says, "So what are you telling me for?"
And the old man says, "I'm telling everybody!"

A Harvard man and a Yale man are at the urinal. They finish and zip up. The Harvard man proceeds to the sink to wash his hands, while the Yale man immediately makes for the exit.
The Harvard man says, "At Harvard they teach us to wash our hands after we urinate."
The Yale man replies, "At Yale they teach us not to piss on our hands."
