Friday Food Funnies: Latkes and Dr Pepper
I don't know what they are, but they're deep-fried and you got twenty minutes to live after you eat one. ~Mel Brooks on the mini-latkes served at Junior's Deli in West Hollywood
Prices are just ridiculous. I went into a chicken place and spent ten dollars for a wing and a drumstick. It's the first time I ever paid an arm and a leg for an arm and a leg. ~Anonymous
I know a radical from Texas who holds the stock market in contempt but refuses to give up his seven shares of Dr Pepper, Dallas's answer to Beaujolais. He says that Dr Pepper, like the late President Eisenhower, is above politics. ~Calvin Trillin
You might as well give it a name. You might as well call it Murray, because it'll be with you for days after you eat it. ~Mel Brooks, on those same latkes.
