Baby, we’re goin’ out for head lard!
Blog Guy, you know how on these hot, sticky summer evenings you get in a real mood for…
You get those cravings too, huh? Man, there just aren’t any good lard restaurants around these days!
Sure there are. I go to one in western Ukraine, where you can get your lard in the shape of a head. Boy, a slab of head lard and a nice crisp sauvignon blanc, you can’t beat it.
But wait. They don’t serve those skimpy little-bitty portions, do they? I hate that.
No, that’s the best part. It’s an all-you-can-eat head lard and pig fat buffet, AND a dinner theater.
An all-I-can-eat lard buffet plus dinner theater? I am SO there! What play are they doing this week?
