If (insert food here) ceased to exist, I wouldn't miss it/them.
For me, it's cotton candy.

I don't understand people who get all ga-ga over thin strands of artificially-colored SUGAR.

Most useless food ever.

15. No Okra that means no Gumbo!
Okra is Africa's gift to the world, to decline in disfavor is to slight the fine continent!

51. There had been no okra in my life
for 24 years until we stumbled into a Luby's the evening before my fiance had his back surgery. His Mom got fried okra. We sat at a big table and I took my glasses off where I didn't see her eat it.

I know I'm strange since Luby's is the only place I will eat fish. I order the LuAnne platter of the fried stuff and have them give me extra, extra tartar sauce. I actually have a little fish with my tartar sauce.

I have tried on many occasions to eat fish, both freshwater and saltwater. I have eaten a bite or two of someone else's fish dish and the next time we'd go there I'd order it for myself. I couldn't eat it if it was on my plate even though I'd like the one or two bite's I'd get off of someone else's plate.

I was raised in Houston and spent summers in Florida so I've had access to fresh fish. I even catch fish and will either release them or give them to the fish-eaters.

I do eat lobster, crab, shrimp and clams. I am weird.

I know they are healthy, but still. I can't stand them, and could live quite happily without them.

Not too much I won't eat but okra is nasty. I wouldn't miss brussels sprouts too much either. And I have to agree about the cotton candy. Just thinking about cotton candy makes my teeth hurt!

I had a brief acquaintance with them years ago...... also fired eggs.....with a runny yolk.

as for eggplant ? I don't think there is much you can do with them to make them safe. You are not missing that much.

54. My standard reply to anyone dissing Coconuts
I like coconuts
You can break them open
They smell like ladies lying in the sun
I like coconuts
You can break them open
They smell like ladies lying in the sun
And if I had my way
I'd give a coconut to everyone


I got a friend named Jack
Look like a bone in a paper sack
That's my friend Jack
C'mon Jack, smell these coconuts
There's enough for everyone
Jackie likes the smell of cut grass
He used to play ball on Saturdays
Playing in the sun
Jackie likes the smell of cut grass
He used to play ball on Saturdays
Playing in the sun
If Jackie had his way
He'd give some cut grass to everyone.


It's time to play
Never tasted such a sweet thing
Yesterdays
Sweet memories my heart's repeating
Time today
Everybody's heart is beating
Everybody's smile is greeting
Everybody's soul is heating (eating?)


I know a guy named Fred
Look like a bone in a slanted shed
That's my friend Fred
C'mon Fred, smell these coconuts
There's enough for everyone
Freddy likes the sound of cold drink
He used to pop tops on Saturday
Sipping in the sun
Freddy likes the sound of cold drink
He used to pop tops on Saturday
He was sipping in the sun
And if Freddy had his way
He'd give a cold drink to everyone


Gonna follow my nose to where the coconut grows
Nobody knows like I know my nose knows
Gonna follow my nose to where the coconut grows
Nobody knows like I know my nose knows
Gonna follow my nose to where the coconut grows
Nobody knows like I know my nose knows
Gonna follow my nose to where the coconut grows
Nobody knows like I know my nose knows


I like coconuts
You can break them open
And they smell like ladies lying in the sun
