Vegetarian chicken

I couldn’t help but notice a Vegetarian Chicken Salad in the supermarket the other day. Not sure if the vegetarian applied to the salad as a whole, or the chicken that was in it. If the former, then I’m very confused, given the fact that last time I looked, chicken was found in the meat aisle.

In Wendy’s, if you want to max your meal, then you don’t max it, you biggie it. I’d argue that people are discouraged to biggie their meal due to the embarrassment of having to ask for it. Maxing (BK) has a certain ring to it, as does Going Large (the McDonald’s equivalent, I think).

Watching the traffic report in New York is as complex as is the British weather report in the UK to the uninitiated. Everything’s an acronym (generally three-lettered), the LIE (Long Island Expressway), the BQE (Brooklyn Queens Expressway, I think), GCP (Grand Central Parkway), GWB (George Washington Bridge) to name but a few. I think I’ll hold off on getting a car until I understand more.

In the US, there are patches for everything: smoking, contraception, stress etc. Just saw a woman come into Starbucks with two. I wonder what ailments she has.

    You sure they were not plasters?
