Bad Food

I bought a 16 oz Coffee and a half pound of Cole Slaw.
I opened the cole slaw and I thought it was weird that it was such an off color.
And I thought it smelled like wood glue, and it was the color of wood glue.

I took a taste-blech!
I went back to the delicattessen and got my $1.85 back.

I really think they mixed up a bottle of carpenters glue and put it in the recipe.

I know what mayonaise and vinegar taste like , and this wasn't it.

Are you sure it was cole slaw? And where was this, so we can avoid the place?

I'm told that most people associate peanuts that are rancid as being top quality. Or something like that...

A true culinary professional would have tasted it again and if necessary again to determine exactly what was wrong with it ...


... and then spend that evening in agony ...



<cough> Can't say I know a certain someone who has used her powers of bad food deduction more than once ...

Any coffee/slaw combo makes my cheap-o Ramen noodles and Diet Dr. Pepper lunch sound positively haute cuisine.
