Marshmallow Man   (+2, -1)  [vote for, against]
Roasted marshmallow street vendor

One of the most welcome harbingers of winter in New York and London is the wonderful smell of roast chesnuts floating on the chill air.

Sadly, there is no such smell redolent of the long warm nights of late summer/early fall. Moreover, those poor unemployed roast chesnut vendors have nothing to do during this time but wait for it to get cold.

So let us redress this imbalance, and repurpose the roast chesnut vendors, sending them out on the street to roast marshmallows.

What did you do, save all of your ideas?

I longed to try a roasted chestnut, imagining that it would be some amazing thing that I would lovingly recall for the rest of my life.   Last Christmas, in Seattle at the Four Seasons Hotel, there was an upscale chestnut roaster. I finally got to try one. It was dreck.

Marshmallows would be better.

They could sell roasted peanuts dressed as Mr. Peanut with top hat and cellulite.

I'm with bris... roast chestnuts taste *awful*. Toasted marshmallows are good though. The vendors could also sell s'mores.

bris: actually, jutta kindly sent me all the ideas I had ever posted after I deleted my account (she may be regretting this now, of course). And, as I noted, it is the *smell* that is important - some things never taste as good as they smell (coffee being another).
