He’s writing stuff down. Right here.

MEATLESS MEDALLIONS

So, I’m in one of those fancy vegetarian restaurants where they make stuff that tastes like meat out of soybeans and glue and cork and stuff. It was actually quite good- I’d swear that tofu came from something that at one time had a face, but I digress...

Here’s what I don’t get- an entree like a “Chx Cutlet” cost $9. But the “Meatless Medallions” goes for $19. “Open Faced Tofurky Sandwich" is $7, while “Braised Rack of Tofu” will set you back $17. Huh? It’s all TOFU!!!!! Shouldn’t it all cost the same?! Maybe a dollar or two difference for preparation, but this is clearly Tofabrication! They are clearly setting prices based on the prices of the dishes the tofu is configured to look and taste like! But it’s still Tofu!! Tofraud!! Tofuck that!!
