Food in Film: Yolk

Blogging from A to Z Challenge

A food addict and connoisseur of tasteful films reviews Food in Film, starring...

… Yolk

A rotten egg breaks all over Templeton the Rat (Steve Buscemi, voice). The barn animals react to the horrid smell and he puns, "The yolks on me!" (Charlotte's Web, 2006)

Mind if I shell out some egg "yolks"?

The wording might not be eggs-act, but two men place a breakfast order in a diner. One orders cow's tongue and the other responds, "Eewww! How can you eat something that came from a cow's mouth?" Then he places his order, "I'll have the eggs."

Why can't you tease egg whites? They can't take a yolk.

As I've mentioned before, life is what comedy is made of... One day I dropped a trayful of eggs while removing them from the refrigerator. My husband reacted, "What's going on?"

Looking at the broken yolks around my feet, I responded, "Apparently I'm ovulating."

Scene: The yolks on Templeton.

I love your 'yolks'! I haven't seen the film for years. I may just revisit it.


Another day in Amble Bay!

Great ovulating joke - better than the movie ones :) and btw I loved the idea of playgrounds for adults - we should be pushing our local councils for them - how much fun would they be?

Great word for Y. Isn't yolk an odd word?

I love Charlotte's Web. Cute movie and even better book. I still recall a brother teasing me for crying when I read the book (around age 10).

I'm glad you enjoyed my "yolks!" When you told someone on your blog that the rising price of eggs was no "yolk" (on your T post) I figured it was YOUR turn to be psychic. haha

Thanks for your comments. And thanks to your post, I plan to do some Young at Heart activities today!

I guess it's not yolk's fault that it rhymes with joke, but the word begs for silliness.

That is hilarious!!!! Way to think on your feet..as well as lay a dozen eggs.
I'm feeling zesty today.

Love your 'yolk'. Quick thinking on your feet. I have never seen Charlotte's Web or read the book and not sure why not. Maybe I'll watch it with the grandson.

The book is wonderful. I enjoyed the movie, too, especially to hear the voices chosen for the various characters. Templeton was my favorite.

Trudy,

I wanted to see this movie but haven't. I'll have to see if it's on Netflix and watch it while on the elliptical. That's my time to watch movies DH otherwise wouldn't enjoy. :)

I wish the fitness room at our condo complex had Netflix. There's a small TV available, but requires a DVD to watch movies.
