Lay the Food Blues on the Weekly to Win Tickets to Monterey Bay Blues Festival
June 19, 2012
Last time we were here, competitors delivered like Doorbell Dining. The challenge: Tell us what food deserves its own movie? The stakes: Tickets to Moonrise Kingdom.
Some of the answers:
Tots! But I guess it's already been done courtesy of the one and only Napoleon Dynamite!! So…how about Poutine. Denise Mello • via Facebook
Just re-make Traffic,” but instead of cocaine it will be about foie gras post-California ban. Robin G Dodd • via Facebook
Taco Truck. The touching new film by Ron Howard. They came to eat tacos. What they got was a reason to believe in power of hand held food and a rolling kitchen. Jen Carter • via Facebook
Geoduck.......remake of Dune..........be sure to use the right spice.......... Warren Herz • via Facebook
The Rise and Fall of Ketchup…no, I am not a vegetable after all! Carol Brenner • via Facebook
Veal. I know it's a controversial food item, but consider the huge popularity of The Shawshank Redemption. Never underestimate the appeal of adorable baby animals staging a jailbreak. Johnny Pomatto • via Facebook
Now, the next challenge. Comment below to take your own Food Blog title.
Cajun crawdads by the bagful. Litters of hush puppies. Catfish in schools.
You deserve a mouthful or 15—plus a earful or 5,000—of blues flavor.
So write the bluesiest (real word) food ditty about what edible item gives you the blues—whether a song lyric, a thought, a poem, a limerick, whatever—and top answer wins two passes to both Saturday and Sunday.
Try this one out for size:
There once was a ceviche I loved/ Tasted like fresh heaven from above/ But when it came out/ I was left to pout/ And to use my poor mama’s hand towel.
“Beef” in a Taco Bell taco/ When I eat it I feel so damn macho/ But when reduced to digestion/ My mind starts to question/ What the f* I was thinking.
Fire away—limerick or not—and then buy Charlie Musselwhite a bucket of wings when enjoying your all-day, two-day grounds passes. All it takes is a fun comment below...
