Ok, I thought it a stretch, at the same time the evil George 1 (or something like that) was writing a song. I could either delete my foolish interruption or bow my head in admiration. I bow my head in admiration.

[indignantly] I wrote a good 70% of those lyrics or better! a-hard-days-night-george-10

(Still puzzled how someone could call "Melon or Fig Beet" 'a stretch' while giving the awful "Chive My Chard" a pass!)

Didn't see anything in the evil George 1's post crediting you. Sorry! I just went off that post. If you wrote 70% my hat goes off to you. Blame the evil George 1 for the lack of credit.

"Chive My Chard" - sorry, missed that one. That's bad. But then no one slagged off "Horse!" which given what's going on in Europe I thought lucky to get away with:

"Horse! I bought beefburgers!

Horse! Thought it was beef lasagna!

Horse! Horse!-Horse!-Hor-or-se!!"

vonbontee: I owe you credit for the name of the song (and the line in the song where it says "Melon or Fig Beet"), but that's all. :) Finish the song, and then I might give you more credit. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Over the past few weeks lot of processed beef products have been found to contain horse. Some just trace amounts, which could just be contamination, but there have been things like beefburgers found that are up to 100% horse meat. It's spread across several countries, and causing quite a fuss.

You know there is a problem when you go into a supermarket and notice a ton of frozen burgers are missing from their space and the others are not selling. It doesnt help that frozen beefburgers are horrible anyway, especially the supermarket own brand, same with ready meals. Hopefully this debacle will persuade folks to buy real meat from their supermarket, butcher etc, which they can prepare at home. Shop sensibly and look in the reduced fridge section before you buy elsewhere, put them in the freezer for the week, month or whenever. Its better for you as its got none of the additives the processed stuff has and tastes better.

Egroeg, that was an allusion to John's claim to have written "70% or better" of "Eleanor Rigby"'s lyrics! Sorry if I was being a bit obscure - I figured everyone would get the reference. (With the winking smiley and all.) And also I felt it was easier to make a joke than to try and tackle an entire song parody as you did! :D

Oh, I got the reference; I just wanted to see if you would finish the song. I didn't feel like it.  :D

My parody so far:

 

Hey food, please don't go bad

I'd be sad cause I can't eat rotten food

Remember the fridge will help you stay cold

And free of mold

So I can eat you

My dad makes a lot of quiche, and he asked me to share the ''song'' that he made up. Basically, it goes like this:

''All we are saying, is give quiche a chance...''

The reason behind it is that I never used to like quiche so he sang this song to me so that I would try it. Parents can be so annoying sometimes.

Sorry, it's one thing joking around with Beatles-based puns (and I'd rather this thread was wide enough to take in more than just food-based puns, I hate people that attempt cashing in on fans by sticking their name on something that can barely be said to have a Beatles connection. You know, just what is the difference between the regular, Ob-La-Di Ob-La Slaw, and Nat "King" Cole Slaw? I bet there's barely none. (Except that Nat "King" is probably a much better pun.)
