As an aficionado of what the legendary Jim Ross calls “good Oklahoma barbeque”, I’ve always been a little bit jealous of Fred Flintstone at the drive-in in the original credits sequence of ‘The Flintstones.’  Sure, I’d never survive eating that much meat, and I imagine it might not get done all the way through, but the idea of bronto ribs as big as your foot-powered car is a compelling one nonetheless.  Heck, I might even wash it down with a big bottle of Gingold, allowing my stomach and digestive tract to elasticize and expand enough to handle such a barrage of red meat.  Of course, it might also be interesting to see what flavor that blue Tattooine milk is (I’m betting clams and tobacco), which leads us today’s nutritionally-insignificant query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) advises that you stay away from the Soylent Green, it tastes it might be on its last legs (Wakka Wakka!), asking: What fictional food or drink would you most like to sample?

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    I wouldn’t mind trying out the Maestro beer from Mission Hill. Might not taste anything special, but it’s that or Slurm, and the knowledge of how that’s made is a big no.

    I gotta go with a modern classic, the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. “like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon, wrapped ’round a large gold brick.” Just sounds awesome.

      The drinking equivalent of a mugging: expensive and bad for the head.

      There are dozens of recipes online for Earth versions. I’m going to attempt most of them at my friends’ wedding at the end of June.

    Not meant to be ironic or snarky, but I would be curious to sample any of the Soylent wafers.

    Since Red and Yellow are made of plankton/algae, I wouldn’t be breaking any dietary mores. Green, on the other hand . . .

    The gum from Willy Wonka. A full meal in a price of gum. Might want to skip dessert though.
