Background: watching Hell's Kitchen, we sometimes find ourselves wondering about the tables in the restaurant. They frequently have these triangle-shaped things on them, which we thought were some kind of appetizer or something; and so some ep where they had a family night, and there were kids at the tables, and a kid said something about being hungry, I cracked, "Shut up and eat your triangles!" Which became a running gag, because of course Mrs. Fungus' response to that crack was AHHH HA HA HA HA HA HAAAA THAT'S FUNNY, which is usually all it takes.
Tonight, then, Mrs. Fungus asked me to make her a salami sandwich on rye. I reminded her that, as the woman, she's supposed to make the sandwiches, but then I went to the kitchen and made her sandwich for her. (I may be a man, but I'm no bloody fool.) Anyway, as I was preparing to cut her sandwich, she asked, "Are you going to cut it into triangles?"
I regarded the shape of the rye slices and said, "I can't." I cut it on the diagonal, then said, "I did manage to cut it into a semicircle and a...uh...paraboloid."
"'Shut up and eat your triangles!'" She said.
"Shut up and eat your paraboloid!" I snapped back.
Her: "AHHHH HA HA HA HA HA HAA THAT'S FUNNY!!!" And, "That has to be the title of the blog post!"
"It's too late for that," I said. "But that doesn't mean I can't put up a new post."
