My first victim is going to be this cookbook. A classic Betty Crocker.
|Betty Crocker's Cookbook, 1969. A staple in many kitchens.|
|An introduction of what we are getting ourselves into. I don't know what I would do if someone brought me a "brace of pheasants". I don't have a pheasant recipe on hand.|
|If I suggested presenting my party dip in a gay little bowl, I'd be tarred and feathered.|
|Alright, Bets. Let's not insult my upbringing.A chicken every Sunday? Kids squabbling over the drumstick? Do kids even know chicken has bones? With the price of poultry these days, a chicken on every Sunday seems a bit impractical.|
|I'm just going to leave this alone. There are too many double meanings and too many variations of this phrase.|
|What a not so good idea!! People like a choice. People like to choose their dressing. And there are double meanings to this too.|
The mythical figure known as Betty Crocker let this slip past her.
Next time, we are going back to the 1950s for quotes and double meanings and more 2012 interpretations of what most of our parents were up against.
