Chicken in a basket
Back in the dark old days of the 70s the height of sophistication was chicken ....... in a basket. It was just ordinary chicken but served in a backed so that it seemed sophisticated and up market therefore commanding higher prices.
I had hoped we may have left those bad old days behind but no.
Now we get stupid plates in every eatery. And not just one plate. Multiple dishes.
As an example we went to the pub for lunch today. Not a special pub. Just a pub. A chain pub. It had good beer and decent food. Mrs Idiot ordered a burger.
It was just a burger. But it was served not on a plate but on a wooden platter. WHY!!!!! why why why.
In addition the chips were not served on the stupid wooden platter. They were served in a separate receptacle that I can only describe as a flower pot.
STOP IT. It's not posh. It's not upmarket. This is supposed to be decent honest pub food. All you are doing is chicken in a basket.
It's happening everywhere. No plates. We get slates, wooden platters chips in wire baskets and flower pots.
No more chicken in a basketing in ordinary eatieries. Leave this stupidity to Heston Bloomin Blowitoutyourass.
Just your friendly neighbourhood Idiot.
Never argue with idiots. They will just bring your down to their level and beat you with superior experience.
Never make fun of a short idiot. It's not big and it's not clever.
