Pulling out the weiners is not effective, no matter how fast they are able to pull.

My brother once told me, as I was eating a hotdog, that hotdogs contain horse assholes. I was so disgusted (as it's probably not far from the truth) that I didn't eat hot dogs for a few years after that.

But pulling on wieners is fun!

Oh, not talking about real male wei.... uh nvm

am I the only one who was shocked to learn Ikea sold food? I thought they only sold crappy particleboard furniture you put together with an allen wrench.

First they came for the meatballs, but I was not a meatball and said nothing.

Then they came for the wieners, and there was no one left to say anything.

OK, I still don't get it - what's this problem with horse meat? I thought everyone liked horses.  It's not like it's rat meat...

Apart from all the legends of the meatballs, THIS.

/Also did not know Costco did it until I got a membership. Best cheap pizza you can get.
 
2013-02-27 06:44:45 PM
IKEA food? Nope. The meat products prolly have names like 'Bjrvrrt' or 'Billy'. I've been to IKEA before, but why bother when there's a farmers' market 10 blocks away? Perhaps the food comes w/ illustrated instructions (and disposable cooking tools) for the illiterate.
The big 'what if': where does IKEA industrial waste go?

Are you kidding? I used to take the wife out to Ikea for their 99 cent breakfasts... scrambled eggs, some sort of meat, some pastry thing.
After that, we'd wander through the store. Those 99 cent breakfasts would usually end up costing me a couple of hundred dollars.

/don't take the wife to Ikea anymore

I know I should be outraged but those meatballs are so delicious...and cheap!

Am I the only person that has no problem with a little horse meat?

Don't get me wrong, I love horses as much as the next guy.  I just can't finish a whole one.

You never saw the Simpsons episode where the Simpsons shop at Ikea because Lisa has the wrong Ikea pencil holder? Homer builds a device out of Lego bricks with four forks on arms and steal everybody's meatballs.

Yes, Ikea s famous for its crappy furniture and its crappy food. You can even buy Ikea houses. Some assembly required.

Sears catalogue used to sell concrete block houses that you could have shipped to you and assemble yourself. Some of them were nice middle class houses--and durable. The link goes to a photo of a concrete house in Hartland, New Brunswick.

Wiener refers to the City of Vienna (Vienne in French, Wienna, etc.). Vienna is one of a number of cities famous for pastries. The croissante, better known as a French pastry, was made in Vienna to celebrate the final defeat of the Turks. Final? Well, close enough. Turkey went into a decline and never conquored Europe from the East. The name Wiener is given to a Vienna sausage, almost indistinguishable from many other types of sausage in Europe (notably Lyons saussage). There is also a city named Vienne or Wien in France, created by the French just to confuse people.

It's a lovely little town with a very fine (and still standing) Roman temple (to Augustus and his wife Livia), a fine Roman pyramid monument, monastery, cathedral, etc. It is the second largest city in Isère after Grenoble, which is famous for its fine dining and skiing. Make your reservations now!

Wiener also refers to other Vienna dishes, such as Wiener Schnitzle, which contains no hotdogs. Think chicken fried steak with viel instead of steak. Yummy!

Vienna is a wonderful city if you're not poor or Adolf Hitler. He hated Vienna. It was full of people who were better off, better looking, and having more fun than him, including a lot of very educated, intelligent and wealthy Jews. Down and out in Vienna:  not where you want to be.

Pot luck suppers are called "soupers Canadien" in Switzerland. Why I do not know. Apparently Canadians introduced the idea of bringing your own dish to a communal meal. In France, they call this a "pique nique", or picnic. French picnics were more like indoor dance parties to which you could bring your own food. You paid admission and possibly bought some drinks or extras as the night wore on.

The shock at this point is not that Surprise Belmont Steak has been found in yet another European food product.  (Hell, at this rate, I would not be shocked if a random inspection of takeaway curry and vindaloo joints in the UK found that the palak paneer and chicken tikka masala had Surprise Belmont Steak.)

The shocker is more that one of the last food products found that might have Surprise Belmont Steak is pretty much the exact foodstuff that I'd be initially suspecting Surprise Belmont Steak in to begin with. :D

(Seriously, pretty much unless it's kosher franks, you're getting Lips And Assholes Of Dubious Species Identity, and they don't even manage to keep the lips and assholes completely out of the kosher franks all the time...but at least then it usually gets caught, because there are some folks who actually do use the kosher stuff in religiously restricted diets and Class 5 Shiatstorms tend to break out if the local Hasidic rabbi finds that he's ingested the rear end of Bessie.)

I've had Wiener Schnitzle in Vienna (restaurant over by the cathedral), they had four guys pounding non-stop to make them larger than the plates they were serving them on. Nothing but squeezed lemon. The best I've had and I've had it a few times in Europe. Yum!

/also one of my favs to make

People saying eating horse meat isn't a big deal.  You're missing the freaking point.  Horse meat is cheaper than beef.  How do you freaking feel when you pay 100 dollars and they lie to you and give you something that actually cost 50 dollars?  It's not big deal right?  I mean it's still meat, who cares they lied to you and ripped you off, right?

As a guy who worked on the North American advertising account for Ikea for six years and having to deal with the funny names... I'm getting a kick..

I don't get why British people are freaking out: They were getting expensive horse meat for cheap. 

No worries about Mad Cow, lean protein, and more flavor than beef.

Talk about looking a gift horse in the ball sack.

Yeah, that was kind of my point. I don't know what you mean by wieners or frankfurters, but, in the same way that Danes may refer to what some know as a "danish pastry" as a "wiener pastry", people in Wien apparently call what some know as wieners, frankfurters.

/Also, nobody thought JFK was a jam doughnut.

Of course. And what they call Berliners, in Detroit and Poland they're called Pączki. My point was just that weiners are pork, frankfurters are beef.
