Citrus Surprise

A concoction with egg, canned tuna, and mandarin oranges (in user-defined quantities), and possibly cinnamon, parsley, pepper, and sesame seeds, plopped into a skillet and stirred. Et voilà! Délicieux!

Crack-Madame

Like a crack-monsieur, but with a fried or scrambled egg on top (or elsewhere).

Crack-Monsieur

A grilled sandwich featurlng toasted bread, ham or alternative (optional), cheese or alternative, and a wafer of Crack Sandwich. Délicieux, disent les Slugs.

Crack Sandwich

Cheap, yet potent. And peanut butterily crunchy. May contain substances illegal in the US.

Can be cooked into crack-monsieurs and crack-madames, or eaten raw. Either way, yum.

Engrish

Engrish is poor English of a particular flavour, usually humourous. It often appears as a result of attempts to translate Japanese or other languages into English.

Flava Ice

A possibly fictitious old-school rapper conjectured out of Flavor Flav and Vanilla Ice, Flava Ice, though rarely seen in person, is known for such rhymes as

Get with the times,

Eat some lemons and limes,

Spend some nickels and dimes,

Cuz I got these whack rhymes.

Jibba what, jibba who?
Now what up wit dat, foo?
This comp been l33t h4x0r3d
With a spiffin' crunk password.

So find all da clues, if you're still confoozed.
When you's got the clues, you should know what to do.
Or I'll find all yo' files on the Net and download 'em
On my twenty ... eight ... point ... eight ... K modem.
I be fizzin' it up wit da old-school style,
If yo' still in denial, then go check my profile.

Yo!

and this snippet from the as-yet-unreleased trilingual hit, «Léz Cool»:

...
Nous sommes livin' it up in la buena casa:
«Qu'est-ce que c'est, hein?» et «¿Eh, qué pasa?»
Après midi, je conduis, et je dis, «Wazza?»
Dans la car, vamos far, we dansons La Dazza!
«La Dazza? Qu'est-ce que wha—? Ni comme ci, nor comme ça!»
Uno peso pour some queso, c'est like bueno, ça va.
...

Rumours abound that Flava Ice will soon make a public appearance and release a new album....

Hot Chocolate

"Hot Chocolate" is a song by the Japanese pop/punk rock band Shonen Knife. The lyrics are below:

Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate
Super fine ground brown powder
Hot Chocolate
Hot as the Sahara desert
Hot Chocolate
Don't need to put any sugar in
Hot Chocolate
I like the bitter taste
Nobody can stop the melting chocolate
Let's go surfing on a tidal wave of chocolate
Hot Chocolate
Stiring up the very very sweet foam
Hot Chocolate
Sweet smell from somewhere
Nobody can stop the melting chocolate
Let's go surfing on a tidal wave of melted chocolate
Mel Mel Mel Mel... Melting
Mel Mel Mel Mel... Melting
Nobody can stop the melting chocolate
Everybody let's jump in, take a swim!
Chocolate
Hot Chocolate...

Pitutu looking "so confuse"!

Pitutu (in Japanese: 青髪猫) (b. 14 October 2005) is everyone's favourite cat with blue hair. Unlike the various species of Pokémon, Pitutu is the name of just one cat, not an entire species. Pitutu is actually a chimera and has cells from two blastocystic individuals. If Pitutu's embryo had not formed from the fusion of two separate blastocysts, she/he would have been born as a pair of twins, a female cat with fluffy blue hair and a male cat with short orange-gold hair.

Pitutu leads a happy life in Pitu Town, where he/she enjoys going to festivals and having fun with his/her friends Norita and Kifufu. She/he especially enjoys celebrating by jumping and dancing, and his/her motto is "Let's cool!!!"

Shonen Knife

  • Note: As of 22 Nov 2005, this page comes up as the second link when Googling shonen knife catch your bus and the third link when Googling shonen knife cookie day or shonen knife people traps. Impressive.

Shonen Knife (少年ナイフ, Shōnen Naifu; lit. boy knife) is a Japanese pop/punk rock group. According to Wikipedia, "Kurt Cobain was so obsessed with them that he insisted Shonen Knife open for Nirvana. They opened for Nirvana on six shows in December 1993." Impressive.

The band has released more than a dozen albums, with only one of which the author of this article is familiar: Happy Hour, which is unfortunately only 38 minutes long, not an hour. :( Interestingly, the album has a total of ten songs out of fourteen (or eleven songs, depending on whether the "old fox" in "People Traps" is figurative or literal) about food and/or non-human animals. The album is probably available in a certain someone's article of clothing. Due to popular request, the author of this article has posted below the lyrics to most of the songs on the album:

Shonen Knife Planet

Wake up everybody! It's now Happy Hour!
Wake up! It is now Happy Hour!
Hey, minnna genki kai?
Hey, asada, mewosamase
Hey, kyomo genki ippai
Hey, ikuze, Go, Go, Go!
Mo, daremo tomerarenai
Rocket ni notte tuppashire
Sah, hayaku norikomoh
Jelly Beans takusan motteikoh
Shonen Knife Planet
Let's go to the Knife Planet
Uchu karano message wa
Love, Peace and Shonen Knife!

Cookie Day

Sugar sugar candy in my mouth
Stay home watch TV
A cute boy singer is singing like a man
I have nothing to do
It's very very hot outside
I'm lazy in my room
I have to water the cactus on the porch
'Cos it needs a drink
Thinking about these kind of things
I suddenly wanted to eat some cookies and dip them in milk
I'm wanna go to the cookie shop
Cookie day, cookie day
It's a beautiful cookie day
Cookie day, cookie day
It's a beautiful cookie day
I have a postcard of a big buffalo
I bought it during the tour
I missed a chance to send it to you
Back in North Dakota
There're many petty things in life
Take it easy Let it be
I promise to send it next time to you
Really means a lot to me

Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate
Super fine ground brown powder
Hot Chocolate
Hot as the Sahara desert
Hot Chocolate
Don't need to put any sugar in
Hot Chocolate
I like the bitter taste
Nobody can stop the melting chocolate
Let's go surfing on a tidal wave of chocolate
Hot Chocolate
Stiring up the very very sweet foam
Hot Chocolate
Sweet smell from somewhere
Nobody can stop the melting chocolate
Let's go surfing on a tidal wave of melted chocolate
Mel Mel Mel Mel... Melting
Mel Mel Mel Mel... Melting
Nobody can stop the melting chocolate
Everybody let's jump in, take a swim!

After a Japanese meal

Fish Eyes

One day, I woke up in my bed, I said something looks so wrong
When I looked around my room, I said something looks so strange
My god! I've got fish eyes!!
My god! I've got fish eyes!!
My god! I've got fish eyes!! fish eyes!
In the meantime I went to school and all my friends were shocked
They asked me questions
They were so eager to know my new views
Ooh la la la...What do I see
Ooh la la la...What do I see
Ooh la la la...What do I see
What do I see, What do I see......woh!
Now I can see things so clearly, wider... better than before
I can't get used to my new world yet and I start screaming

Banana Chips

Banana chips for you! Banana chips for me!
In the afternoon, Banana chips and tea
Sliced bananas lightly fried with coconut oil, mmm...
They're just a little bit sweet
Banana Chips, Banana Chips
Banana Chips, Banana Chips
Banana Chips, Banana Chips
Banana Chips, Oh, yeah!
Banana chips for me! Banana chips for you!
I can never get enough Banana chips, it's true
Oh, I really like to eat them
Love their sweet smell of coconut oil
Banana chips for you! Banana chips for me!
In the afternoon, Banana chips and tea
It reminds me of the sunshine on a tropical paradise isle

Dolly

One sheep, two sheep, three sheep for my sleep
Four sheep, five sheep, six sheep for my sleep
They appear in my head late at night
A large pasture in my mind
Green grass and flowers and trees
One sheep, two sheep, three sheep for my sleep
Four sheep, five sheep, six sheep for my sleep
They have the same shape just like clones
A large pasture in my mind
Green grass and flowers and trees
But I can sleep without sheep
Sheep in the sky
Like a butterfly
Sheep in the sky
Like a butterfly
Deep inside, deep inside
Deep inside, deep inside
Deep inside, deep inside
Deep inside, deep inside
One sheep, two sheep, three sheep for my sleep
Four sheep, five sheep, six sheep for my sleep
They appear in my head late at night
A large pasture in my mind
Green grass and flowers and trees
But I can sleep without sheep
Deep inside, deep inside (good night, sleep tight)...

Jackalope

I just got a post card of an unknown creature
Instantly I noticed its unusual features
It doesn't look like any thing I've ever seen
Looks sweet and friendly, I don't think it could be mean
Jackalope, tell me where you hiding, hey hey hey
Jackalope, how come I can't find you, hey hey hey
I stare at the post card
Half jack rabbit, half antelope
Now I know it's called a Jackalope
A funny little bunny with horns
Kinda cute, kinda cool, kinda wild
I just got a phone call from the far away future
Telling me the story of this mythical creature
I went to the zoo, but couldn't find it anywhere
The only things I found there were the raindeer and the hare
It was posted from somewhere in Texas
It must be living somewhere in Texas
Ja Ja ...Jackalope
Jackalope, Jackalope, tell me where you hiding, hey hey hey
Jackalope, how come I can't find you, hey hey hey... where are you from?

Gyoza

Spiced minced pork wrapped in a small pancake
Steamed or fried tastes so good
Spiced minced shrimp wrapped in a small pancake
Steamed or fried tastes so good
From China, from a thousand years ago
From China, historical revolution
From China, from a thousand years ago
From China, tasty history
...It's tasty history!

Catch Your Bus

Life is tough, can drive you out of your mind
Don't give up, things are gonna be just fine
I may not be the smartest
I may not be the strongest
I'm happy just to be me, yeh yeh yeh yeh
Don't be afraid of missing the bus
You will catch your bus
Don't be afraid of missing the bus
You will catch your bus
catch your bus
Find your dreams, all you gotta do is try
Take a chance, why don't you come out and play
Life's too short, so don't waste another day
Have some fun, come on!
Let's have a good time
catch your bus

People Traps

Don't walk into people traps
A sly old man has set a trap
Any number of people traps in society
Watch out for those people traps
A sly old fox is setting traps
Any number of people traps in society, hey!
You better keep your eyes wide open all the time
You've stepped into a danger zone
It's a very dirty trick
Beware of the people traps, beware of the people traps
Watch out, watch out, watch out, watch out
Beware of the people traps
Don't fall into people traps
A sly old man is setting traps
Many numbers of people traps on the path
Watch out for those people traps
A sly old fox has set you up
Many numbers of people traps on the path, hey!
You better keep your eyes wide open all the time
You've stepped into a danger zone
It's a very nasty trick
There are many honeyed words
There is so much misinformation
There are many sweet talking guys
There are many temptations

His Pet

Do you know his pet? Oh, yes I do.
Do you know his pet? Oh, yes I do.
Do you know his pet? Oh, yes I do.
Do you know his pet? Oh, yes I do.
It's a multicolored carp
Dressed in black, red and white
When you clap your hands
Then it will appear
It has a very open mouth
It's been alive two hundred years
It can swim very fast like a torpede shark
Someone said that Miso Soup with carp meat would be tasty
Then it jumped up very high
Higher, higher and higher
It can understand your words
Always has a strange look on its face
It can swim very fast like a torpede shark
It's a multicolored carp
Dressed in black, red and white
Growing bigger and bigger
Gills, gills, gills, gills
