'Serts are what I call desserts.


'Serts are what I call desserts.
Tre-tre's are entrees.
I call sandwiches sammies, sandoozles, or adamsandlers.
Air conditioners are cool blasterz with a "z." I don't know where that came from.
I call cakes big ole' cookies.
I call noodles long-ass rice.
Fried chicken is fry-fry chicky-chick.
Chicken parm is chicky-chicky parm-parm.
Chicken cacciatore... chicky catch.
I call eggs pre-birds... or future birds.
Root beer is super water.
Tortillas are bean blankies.
And I call forks food rakes.
- Tom Haverford's food slang from Parks and Recreation

1. Because some things are too good not to share.
2. Because someone had to transcribe this brilliance so I can start quoting it on a regular basis. Thank you, self.
3. If you don't already watch Parks and Rec, start. Now.

  1. We are having Chicky Chicky Parm Parm tonight inspired by silly Tom's rant. Thanks for transcribing, I will also be working this in to my "at home" vocabulary, so the rest of the world doesn't think (or doesn't confirm) that I am nuts
