GOES DOWN FUNNY …

|| By FITSNEWS || Hat tip to our beloved Taylor Brown for forwarding us this hilarious video, in which six Californians decide to “taste test” several South Carolina foods.

On the menu?  Sweet iced tea, shrimp and grits, boiled peanuts, mustard-based barbecue and Blenheim hot ginger ale.

What did well?  The tea and the barbecue. Not so well?  The peanuts.  And the ginger ale.

The reactions, though, are priceless …

“I’m not gonna lie, if I found out this was squirrel I probably wouldn’t be that upset about it,” one of the testers noted after consuming some of the mustard-based barbecue.

And what of the Blenheim’s bite?

“It tastes like your mom saying ‘I love you’ and then comes in the spice – ‘but you’re adopted,'” one taster said.

Ha!

Enjoy (we did) …

Funny …

Oh and “Alison,” anytime you want to come down and binge watch some Southern Charm with us … we’ll get Hudson’s to cater.

Do you think Alison knows Sam is working a Truck Stop glory hole to support his heroin addiction? And what the hell about the Cali stereotype of beautiful yoga loving skinny people?

A Louisiana native warned me, when I moved here many years back, that “South Carolina barbeque looks and smells like dog vomit”.

After watching Alison handle Boiled Peanuts, I don’t think she swallows. Just a guess though.

That is why I am surprised no one commented on it. That is the first thing that came to mind when I watched it and laughed.

Question is: Will FITS attack them and accuse them of being ignorant just because they tested South Carolina cuisine…???…or does he – and pious Sanford elitists like him – only hate true South Carolinians???

Typical Liberals. You think your fellow countrymen are aliens (of course you’d love aliens – space and illegal- more) just because we don’t swear allegiance to your leftist ideology and and exalt immorality..

Get your head out your @$$…We’re Americans…and most would say MORE American than you…

You must be a real hit in the neighborhood. Are you this angry about everything?

Are you a parody character?

I asked a legitimate question…that seems to have caused an angry response from you because you suck the D!*k of people who HATE South Carolina…LMAO…
Hope that clears it up…Hahahaha…

Dislike of boiled peanuts is a capital offence. Ready the firing squad and begin shooting on my command.

I love ’em, but they send my blood pressure through the roof, the way they are normally done. No salt, good too, but not the same. I eat the salty, but sparingly.

While I think SC is the capitol of fast food chains and they by no mean have a monopoly on salted peanuts. I do like them and they must be healthy (save the salt).

Highlighting a term, right-clicking on it, and choosing the “Search Google for … “, or simply saying, “Hey Google, show me …” are apprently extremely esoteric exercises beyond the ken of many who post here.

A mixture of Blenheim and Coke 50/50 works great for a sore throat. My first taste was in a steaming hot July, and the dude in that little country store told me to “jus’ chug it” — Woooo, the hell of it..!!

I have no idea what that “shit” even is. Seriously, where have I been for the past decade?

Buz Martin March 27, 2015 at 9:28 pm

You talking about Blenheim? It’s been around since before our parents were born. Since 1903. Factory has moved to Hamer, as part of the South of the Border Complex now. Alas. The old factory in Blenheim SC was classic Americana. SOTB is, too, but not in anything like a classic way.

Pineapple Twist March 27, 2015 at 9:30 pm

Yes, I am talking about Blenheim. It might have been around since our parents were born, but I wasn’t born and bred here. I’ll try to look it up with info you gave – thanks!

LOL. I think my comment put yours out of sequence.

OOPS! Yeah, it did.

I ain’t like that, though I do support their rights. (Tired of saying “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

Pineapple Twist March 27, 2015 at 9:25 pm

LOL – is that Britney I hear singing in the background (ooops I did it again…)

Actually I somehow did that? Sorry pal and agree, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Pineapple Twist March 27, 2015 at 3:26 pm

When they say just chug it, remember what you say about the ladies who swallow. Or it is “jus’ chug it”?

Alison (who like it) nailed it. “The BDSM of Ginger Ale.”

Their jingle should be “Hurts So Good.”

It was visitor’s day at the lunatic asylum. All the inmates were standing in the courtyard singing “Ave Maria” and singing it beautifully. Oddly, each of them was holding a red apple in one hand and tapping it rhythmically with a pencil.

A visitor listened in wonderment to the performance
and then approached the choir. “I am a retired choir director,” he said. “This is one of the best choirs I have ever heard.”

“Yes, I’m very proud of them,” said the conductor.

“You should take them on tour,” said the visitor, “what are they called?”

“Surely that’s obvious,” replied the conductor. “They are the Moron Tapanapple Choir

Am I being predjucial if you’d have a hard time explaining to these kids that Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are the same and the difference between the menus is the difference between California and South Carolina food? With tea, they sweeten it at the table, we sweeten it when we brew it. Now I believe that just shows who’s smarter.
