|07:58 am - Interlude: Dad ponders vegetarianism|
"Hey, Dad," I said as I walked into his office, "I think we're going to be out there for quite awhile longer."
"Oh?" he said, raising an eyebrow.
"Well, we got the bike in the trailer, and the trailer hooked up to the RV, but when we went to hook up the trailer brake lights, there was sort of a problem. See, the end coming off the RV is a square-shaped thing, and the end coming off the trailer is a round-shaped thing. And this would be okay, because we have an adapter, but unfortunately the adapter and the ends of both connectors are female. So, the guys are out there now with screwdrivers, WD-40, and a wiring diagram."
Dad gazed at me for a moment in silence. "I'll leave the lights on for you," he said.
"Thanks, Dad." I turned to leave.
"Oh, hey," he stopped me, "Did you know they have this thing called 'tofurkey?'"
"Yeah, sure, they've had that for awhile," I replied.
"It's like turkey they make out of tofu!" he continued. "They make tofu into something that looks and tastes like turkey!"
"Yeah, yeah, tofurkey. You'd never heard of it?"
Dad shook his head. "No, I just heard of it today," he said, "and it kind of got me thinking: what are they going to call it when they make tofu into chuck roast?"
I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time.

I have a serious Tourette's-like impulse to yell out the answer to the tofu chuck roast question today. It's very, very difficult to control.
I'm still giggling like mad every time I think of it.
Your father is a very special man. And I'm not only saying that because I'm a vegetarian with a sense of humor.
Yeah, Dad rules. :-)
I really want to get a tofu chuck roast now, just so I can have a bunch of people over and tell them what's for dinner.
Oh, man, I can NOT stop giggling over this!
Yes, I'm easily amused.
That's even better than Turducken
. Chicken stuffed into duck stuffed into turkey (and sometimes they stuff the chicken with sausage)!
Soooo ... what do you think they'd call a Tofurkey stuffed with Tofuckroast?
Oh yeah, and if you can fit a Toficken in there, then you end up with Tofucken.

I dunno MrsV, i think we should go there.
A contest for what to call a tofu chuck roast.
A chutofucker? Sounds like a disabling judo move. Makes you hobble.
I'm partial to "tofuckroast," myself...
How come i was anonymous?
"Tofuckroast, perhaps to burn."
On days like today, I love my LJ friends list with a passion far beyond that of mortal understanding.
*tries to not skish you too hard*
Sounds like a bad James Bond villain to me...
"What do you want, Tofuck Roast? Do you expect me to talk?""
"Why no Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."
Oh my God, that almost made me fall out of my chair!
(Laughter- the best medicine...) >:P

He'd have to have one of those really big 70's mustaches, à la Freddy Mercury.

There was a guy that worked with me for a short time named Chuck.
It took all my self control not to constantly ask him "What's up Chuck?"

I want your dad to adopt me, he's awesome!
There's actually a waiting list for that.

Figures, I must be 1154422th.
You should see the lists to get into his classes at the uni...
By the time I got to the bottom of the comments my cat not only left my lap, he left the room! He hates it when I make all those loud laughing noises! My thought on tofuck roast was it sounded like some kind of cross between a sexual fetish and a barbeque!
Hahahaha! I was telling my dad about some of these comments, and he was just dying laughing. I think he laughed loudest at yours, "chuck toast," "Tofuckey," and "No, Mr. Bond: I want you to die."
Although he was also quite flattered at jenneses
' adoption comment. :-)
