To help promote their business selling vouchers usable at various UK restaurants, RestauarantsChoice.co.uk set up a subsite, "The Internet Foodie Database" with a list of the Top 250 Food Flicks
. Surprisingly, #1 on the list with a rating of 9.3 was "Bill and Ted's Bogus Jerky", the sequel to "Bill and Ted's Egg Salad Adventure", which only rated a 6.4. But this was far from the first effort to create a definitive list of Movie/Food Puns...Punny Side Up
has featured over 150 such puns in the form of photoshopped movie posters, starting in November 2010 with "Bill and Ted's Egg Salad Adventure"
, and including such classics as "Spartacustard"
, "Prawn of the Dead"
(maybe the only prawn pun not in the IFDb) and "They Call Me MISTER Pibb!"
Movie/Food Puns have also been crowdsourced, in forum posts at Yelp
and a community site in Staffordshire
, as well as a contest at the New Yorker website
, and recent Oscar-themed "movie menus" at both Bon Appétit
and Serious Eats
Of course, TV/Food Puns have also been done, but are not as well collected. There's this recent webcomic
and even a cute little sketch from MeFi's Own John 'The Whelk' Leavitt
(all he's missing is a piece of bacon in his hand/hoof).
