I often enjoy reading the “Letters to the Editor” section of our local paper. I think it’s because it gives me comfort to know there are others that may be even more off-center than I am. However, there was one today that I really enjoyed. A person by the name of Neill Gardner commented on a feature the paper ran week or so ago. This feature showed different interesting ways to serve food. I recall seeing a picture of a fruit cocktail in a wine glass. Here is what Neill said so well:
Wrong martini recipe
How many subscriptions were cancelled following your Aug. 17 full-color atrocity recommending serving mashed potatoes in a martini glass?
We try to be patient when you print the wrong solution to the crossword puzzle. It was bad enough when you cancelled Andy Capp just because the cartoonist died. We can endure your offering warmed-over Dave Barry. But now you have gone too far.
Even the most gray matter-impaired amongst us must realize that filling a martini glass with mashed potatoes will leave no room for the gin, let alone the vermouth.
Shame on you!Neill Gardner
