|07:52 am - THE ANCIENT CHEEZSTIX(TM)HENGE|
Well, you have your fennel polenta groat-encrusted seared with a red wine reduction and extra virgin emulsion food porn, and me, well, I just play with my food.
THIS SHRINE WAS BUILT ENTIRELY WITHOUT THE USE OF MODERN TOOLS!
I told the waiter it really wasn't a statement on the quality of the CheezStix(TM), which were okay as far as CheezStix(TM) go, I just couldn't finish. He said he was honestly impressed.
There is great magic in these
omg I miss cheezstix. Next time I have junk food money, that's what I'm getting.

I'm amazed that a place would provide so many cheezstix that you have NINE left that you couldn't finish.
When I started university, the dorm cafeteria had cheezstix... $4 (CDN) would get you something like eight stix, and they were about five inches long with a solid breadcrumb crust, not the tiny little battered things you get in pubs. This was not 'back in the day', it was only about seven years ago.
(I cut 'em in half. With a knife... which is decidedly NOT a modern tool!)
"We're eating a henge, are we? FanTAStic. Lovely people, the Druids..."

And tasty, the romans had them with steak...oh, wait, I...at the stake...well, whichever. Well roasted.
I'm reminded of the time I built a house of cards/coasters on the bar in an Outback Steakhouse, and the bartender kept giving me more coasters, and it just kept growing. I topped it with a menu card holder, then an ashtray, and the bartender told me that if it were really impressive, I'd be able to set my beer mug on top of it. Which I did--then left a big tip and walked out of the restaurant.
I'm sure it's probably still there.
But Cheesehenge? That's ART.
I could never get those Outback coasters to do much, but then again, I haven't had much experience or luck with hoose-o-cards buildin.
...but they left a pretty decent tip all things considered.
Between your cheese art and your Ed Grimley, I'm a very happy person right now.
This should be a new competition at the Minnesota State Fair. They've got butter sculpture and seed mosaiac portraiture, and all the food on a stick you can shake a wooden skewer at, but nothing at all like cheesehenge.
