Okay, Ms. Smartypants--what does "Marchegiano" mean? Is that someone from Le Marche, or something else even more obscure? Damn pedants...

You know we're all mad about you, but you trod on dangerous ground indeed when you affronted the memory of our Canadian grandmas, God rest them, by calling your cockamamie honeyed concoction--as tasty as it may be--a butter tart. That's like claiming that Vermont produces maple syrup! I'm pleased that you've done the honorable thing and renamed it. There is, after all, a limit.
If God had meant us to eat cottage cheese, we'd all live in cottages.

Gosh--some people have all the luck! What would a person have to do to get a delightful, hilarious, madcap life like yours? If you ever want to trade places... And by the way, Husband: "CORNICHON: The dyspeptic runt of the pickle world. Cornichons are pimply, anemic, laughably puny cucumbers that undergo a painstaking process of marination aimed at replacing any discernible flavor with a monochromatic sourness. They are considered a flattering accompaniment to pâté, as well as various meats and fish. In fact, it's fair to say that after a bite of cornichon, nearly anything would taste delicious, even gnocchi made of lint." (The Devil's Food Dictionary)

Hey, are you gonna eat that chicken tikka masala?
Your method of eating pancakes is evil and wrong, and you should be ashamed.

Bad news, I'm afraid: God also brings his own chef--some guy who used to work for Thomas Keller. And you'll never guess whose chef was one of the winners on "Hell's Kitchen."

Two things: First, turn the box around, and you'll see that his hand is on her ass. Second, I believe what Husband meant was, "Couples that dump together, hump together." No, really, anything I can do to help.
