new scale theory

a scale that uses foods- not just the average 1-10
  (+1, -8)(+1, -8)
(+1, -8)
  [vote for,
against]

this scale ranges from pea- to steak. pea obviosly being the worst, and steak the best- any food can come inbetween (must be primary food- eg cheese, bread, marmite- beef is ok- but not roast dinner) depending on how good the food is detirmines the rating of the thing. This has the added bonus of being able to give attributes to the food and therefore to the thing in question. eg- if i had to say how important fullstops are in punctuation- id give it bread. why- brerad is a keystone in food, solid reliable robust- and without it- i wouldnt know what to do... think on...

Marmite http://www.marmite.com

       Marmite is evil. It would be worth minus 1000000. (blissmiss, do a 1/2B search for marmite, and you'll find more than you ever wanted to know). I think there's a reason for using numbers as part of measurement systems. Fishbones/croissies works because it's binary, and even then a cat might disagree, but anything more would be very unintuitive. What do badgers eat? Slugs and insects?

       I assume you intended irony when you chose punctuation as your example?
beauxeault, Dec 06 2001
  

       I rate the hyphen as the salt of punctuation, because if misused it's really horrible.

You mean "apostrophes" of course.

lewisgirl, Dec 06 2001
  

       Heh. I wasn't sure if it was irony or not.

       steel yourself for three pages of puns..........

       Okay then . . .

Carnation milk is the best in the land;
Here I sit with a can in my hand.
No tits to pull, no hay to pitch,
You just punch a hole in the son of a bitch

       <h1>ON TOPIC:</h1> In what way is this- a "Theory"?Other than- the fact that we've- just- disproved it.

       My wife and I recently went to a dinner where the host provides the meat dish and the guests all bring salads, desserts, and side dishes. The host said, "Just bring something that goes with ham."   

       So my contribution was green eggs.   

       (Fortunately, my wife is a more responsible guest, and had prepared some real food item as well.)
beauxeault, Dec 06 2001
  

       How did you make them green? Food dye?
bristolz, Dec 06 2001
  

       Nah, uh! I don't believe you.
bristolz, Dec 06 2001
  

       Scrambled eggs + grape juice = green eggs.
beauxeault, Dec 07 2001
  

       I was thinking fried eggs, like in the book, and wondering how one could color them.
bristolz, Dec 07 2001
  

       Blue food coloring will make blue whites and green yolks. It's pretty gross-looking, though it tastes exactly the same.
