So... it's randomly generating a humourous menu on every page load.

But I'm not getting the humour.

This is going to be one of those times when I spend an hour wondering if it was the humour or my sense of humour that was broken, isn't it.

did this used to be something else, much in the same way you used to be someone else?

Red hot Easter egg extract, Fatigued reindeer nog

Maybe not so much humorous as absurdist. Although I've seen actual menu items that were more absurd than this.

Somewhere, I'm guessing, a jaded chef is jotting down ideas generated by this thing.

(regardless, I've dined at Napa's Meadowoods and these "humorous" descriptions were pretty close to their actual menu. And I might have preferred the Tiny cordial tempura melded with alcohol and avocadoes to the various foams that graced my plates, but that's just me.)

If it wasn't for the fact that they often mention a different wine in the title and the description, the wine menu reads dead straight to me.

Sausage roll margarita layer upon layer upon layer with greens swimming in a sauce of Anzac biscuits, blue cheese, and five-minute snow peas with the delicate flavour of egg in the hole smothered with tequila cooked while you wait stuffed with kale and passionfruit accentuated with minty squid ink shake combined with peppered bubble 'n' squeak having eaten at a restaurant that had its own "ignitables" menu where your waiter wafted foodie incense at you while you ate salmon roe paper nestled on black salted agar-agar this doesn't seem too implausible.
