The Overrated Thread


#563

If you’re anywhere near Joes Shoe Bar on High St Northcote, they do a good Hendricks and cuke. Not sure they use the word ‘cuke’ tho, may not have transitioned from Blitz to street level yet.

Cuke is the soft drink from the IT crowd. Obviously a play on Coke. ‘It’s heaven in a can’

That’s what I was trying to post above. Won’t work for some reason.

Visit Kelvin Bar on High st Northcote. Their specialty is the :cocktail: martini.


#566

That’s right!image

A good thing, right? :wink:

Talking about overrated stuff, I’d like to add something from Japan - mochi (a kind of glutinous rice cake). Japanese love the stuff, especially towards the end of the year, as it is a traditional NY food.

Don’t get me wrong, it tastes OK, but it isn’t that flash hot & certainly not worth choking on - which inevitably a dozen or so people (almost all of them elderly) sadly do every year. Choking to death on mochi isn’t part of my exit strategy from Japan. How about you, @mrjez?

This deserved more


#569

I suspect there is a good joke in there but I wasn’t clear on what it actually was


#570

Can you let me know the address of this bar where the bar staff do these disgusting things?

Just so I can, ah, avoid it.


#571

Chest nuts.
Depends whose chest.
As in, I could put my nuts on your chest.

As in, testicles.


#572

But it really was a swizzle stick …


#573

Yeah I got the testicle reference, but what about the lazy reference? It made no sense

PS the best jokes are the ones you have to explain afterwards


#574

Mochi is rated just right for mine. Love it in sukiyaki especially!


#575

I’m not that clever


#576

Or funny. Or good looking, or talented, or hygienic, or…


#577

Photos or it didn’t happen.


#578

Henry pls


#579

Bahahaha. Taking a selfie while choking on mochi would make a cool story title. On a more sincere note:


#580

Rangoon summers.
Luge lessons


#581

Ritualistically shaven scrotums.

Oh they’re everywhere
