Pop Goes The Colonel

While we’re on the subject of food, please read Hot Lemon’s excellent post here on popping the perfect kernel and weigh in on the topic.

Why when I think of Hot Lemon do the words Big Orange come to mind?

When I think of the phrase 'Hot Lemon,' somehow the name 'Walter Matthau' comes to mind.

I'm eating popcorn right now actually. Its not the real stuff, but it was hard enough trying to find microwave popcorn here I couldn't imagine finding the real stuff.

I loved the sound of my parents popcorn maker. First few minutes when it was filling up with air. Yes, good times. I'm also not a fan of the powder flavours you can put on popcorn now, I feel like popcorn is trying to make the move towards chips, when really its fine on its own.

They dated once. Way back in early fruit bowl.

It makes me think of the U2 song "Lemon," which reminds me how terrible U2 is.

Grant Miller said...

Big orange. Hot lemon. It's very confusing.

Skylers Dad said...

It's because I think they both live in a sieve.

Dale said...

I'm worried about you X. Dell but only a little.

Watch the keyboard Allison! I'm not into the powder flavour either so we'd get along just fine, at least at the movies.

I heard they did a little bump and rind Beth.

Is it just that you still haven't found what they're looking to sell you Pistols?

I apologize for causing you distress Grant Miller.

Or on the side of a cocktail glass Skyler's Dad.

When I was little I told my dad I wanted to marry Orville Redenbacher. I love popcorn and eat it nearly every day. Can't say the same about Orville.

This may be in the area of "I'm not old enough to remember this" for you, but when popcorn is mentioned I remember on the 'Mary Tyler Moore' series, Rhoda, after being dumped by yet another boyfriend, sitting on her couch with a big bowl of popcorn and buttering each kernal of popped corn individually. Now that is popcorn!! And by the way, I was the one who shook the pan at my childhood home. CP was not tall enough back then.

reminds me of the song

Lemon tree very pretty
and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon
is impossible to eat.

Okay, I opened the link to Hot Lemon's page and this guy's voice starts coming out of my computer. It was sort of scary.

TV has closed captioning for viewers who can't hear, bloggers now seem to have audio blogging for those of us who can't read.

Oh, well, you know-- all citrus fruits look alike.

Danny Tagalog said...

That's some post, and back in the UK popcorn seemed to be confined to the cinema, but here in Japan we 've just started making it for our little one. Caramel Popcorn - yumm:)

Dale said...

It was the glasses wasn't it Leonesse? I bet they're all that's left.

I'm sure I have no idea what you're talking about Jake's Mom.

Can you hum a few bars Distributor Cap? I don't think I've heard it although you made me look it up.

I'm working on a sign language add on for my blog too now Chancelucky, I aim to eventually offend everyone.

But you smell different than I remember.

Caramel corn, hmmm, okay, I'll be right over Danny. How long's the flight?

Coaster Punchman said...

I loved his post and it inspired me to make this really gross cheese flavored microwave corn, which I threw out.

Dale said...

It was a great post CP, greater than the sounds of that mess you made. If only you could throw Mama Gin out that easily.
