Fun with Fieri

Remember the Guy Fieri restaurant review from hell? David Letterman had a segment recently about "discontinued Guy Fieri menu items", and CBS was kind enough to put it on Youtube themselves. Check it out. :) They're all very funny, especially the crust-crusted crust, or inappropriately-rubbed brisked, or even the suspiciously damp toast. ^^

Given that the original review also panned the "Awesome Pretzel Chicken Tenders", asking "did you discern any buttermilk or brine in the white meat, or did you think it tasted like chewy air?", maybe there's room for more sides as well... how about chewy air, bread made without any ingredients and stone soup? :)

And we've been having fun trying to come up with our own dishes he could serve, too. Spaghetti Pinatubo, maybe? Or how about desserts? Today, we recommend croquembouche à l'explosion (ooh, I'll have that!), or our homemade key lime and dynamite pie; or for the adventurous palate, ass and balls: ice cream smothered in donkey sauce. :P

Any ideas of your own? Share them below. ^^

Cockatoo Stew?
Due to the legendary toughness of cockatoo meat, however, you do need to make sure it's prepared properly - by putting the cockatoo, plucked and gutted, into a billy with some water and a heavy stone on top.
Add to that your seasoning and spices, and some vegetables, and let the whole thing simmer for 8-10 hours on the campfire.

When the rocks are soft enough, throw the cockatoo away, and eat the rocks.

I guess it's a twist on stone soup, and trying to make the joke that the stones will be more tender than the cockatoo meat.

I never heard about that one, but that's good, yes. ^^ Fieri would probably serve you the cockatoo after all, of course.

There's a roadhouse restaurant I used to go to with my father when doing a cross-country run with him in the truck on school holidays - the 'recipe' was on the back of the menu. Think it's also where I first heard of stone soup.
