Yesterday there was a trending topic, #cookbeatles, on Twitter. People got involved with some wildly inventive and some utterly awful punning with The Beatles and cooking.

Here are my offerings (I was gladly killing time in my lunch break, aptly enough). I mentioned it to my wife last night and, ever one for great ideas, she said: “You should open a restaurant with Beatles-related items on the menu”. So now I know what to do if this all falls through!

Anyway, here are my offerings from #cookbeatles. I apologise in advance for the awfulness of most of these. My favourite’s Maybe I’m Mayonnaised, though that wasn’t a Beatles song Frown

She’s Leaving Bone sounds more like the porn version ahdn_paul_02

The ones that stand out to me:

Maybe I’m Mayonnaised — should win an award for Best Groaner

Donut Let Me Down — I don’t want to like this one, but I can’t help myself

Whisk And Shout — that could have been used for a TV commercial in the 60s

Old Brown Stew — sounds very Liverpuddlian

Let It Brie — my hands are tied

Komm, Gib Mir Diner Hand — nice

I Want To Hold Your Ham — again with the porn version… a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Hey Food — sometimes the simple ones work

Happiness Is A Warm Bun — this one wrote itself!

Got To Get You Into My Loaf — ahdn_paul_01

You’ve Veally Got A Hold On Me — an A for ingenuity

I actually run a food blog about The Beatles, so I’ll throw down some puns

 

    • Strawberry (Shortcake) Fields Forever

apple01

  

I’m browsing among all the pages here and may pick out the ones I like. This one by @abby_road_1  I think didn’t need to include “fields” in parentheses. It works perfectly just saying “Strawberry shortcake forever” — especially because John stretches the one syllable word “fields” into two.
 
I also like @Ahhh Girl ‘s “it’s getting butter all the time”, especially with the repetition of butter throughout the song — but only as long as it’s pronounced in that British way “buttah” john-lennon-salute_gif

“I’ve got a peeling” would be especially comical as Paul is wigging out with his screaming — imagining Gordon Ramsay becoming homicidal in the kitchen (or better yet, Julia Child)

I’m still browsin’.  It occurred to me, this thread is false advertising — there are too many GOOD puns here, not terrible at all!

You Never Give Me Your Muffins

This inspired me to flesh it out:

You never give me your muffins,
you only give me your pumpkin cupcakes
and in the middle of our lunch re-uptake, we break bread…
 
I never give you cucumbers,
I only give you my vegetation,
and in the middle of our satiation, we break bread…
