Don't Want No Stinking Peanuts

Discussion in 'Pork' started by Preacher Man, May 17, 2019.

  1. I was on a flight to Nashville, and I hate paying airport prices for food. So what's a man to do? Slice some onion thin, pack the tortillas, and pull out the pulled pork.

    People on the plane were looking at me like, "Tha heck is this redneck doing?!?"

    Sure beats peanuts and paying airport prices.

    Good idea Preacher. Use that saved up money and order some "Hot Chicken" while you are here!

    You have to take care of yourself. I rarely fly these days. All that flapping makes my arms tired. And I won't pay their ridiculous prices. Direct to you from the infamous El Rancho Rusty Zipper. Rusty

    Next time they ask you if you would like something to drink pull a Budweiser tall boy out of your pocket and tell them no thank you...you brought your own. I'm sure it will be ok
     
  7. On a flight a few years back I saw a dude get arrested as soon as we landed because he pulled out a flask of whiskey and put some in his complimentary coke. Flight attendant said it's illegal to drink your own alcohol in an airplane and the guy thought she was just trying to sell him some for the airline. So he thinks he's calling her bluff while she's off calling the cops.

    I haven't been on a flight in years, but I'm surprised they let you through security with those dangerous unpackaged items. I figured by now there were stipulations on open food, like there is with open drinks.
     
  9. Can't say I ever thought to bring my own full meal. I have brought my own smoked almonds though.
     
  10. As long as it's not liquid, you can take any food you want.
     
  11. So I’m assuming you pre-Sliced the onions...:emoji_disappointed:

    Last time I flew anywhere, you could still SMOKE in the back rows of the plane.
    This post reminds me of my childhood. Dad could not see paying theater prices for snacks. Mom would pop a Stock Pot full of Popcorn, ice a cooler load of Soda, pack assorted Candy and we were off to the Drive-in. If it was a Double Feature, us kids wore our PJ's as we're not likely going to make it through both movies. We could be carried to bed without waking up...JJ

    My folks did the same thing, and when my turn came, so did I. There used to be a couple drive-ins nearby, but they were sold in the past couple years, as the price of the land became too valuable. My daughter now laments that she will never be able to experience a drive-in with her 2 kids.

    Have not flown in awhile but flew recently for spring break and was quite surprised by the number of folks brown bagging. LOTS of people did Subway. Rode Amtrack a few years back and it seemed kinda popular to BYOB. I got brave on my way home and decided to check out the lounge car and it was ROCKING like a night club. OMG drive in memories... Wife and I went all the time when we dated. We still have some nearby. I need to take the youngest.

    I grew up with the same type of parents, I love going to the drive in's in the summertime.
    Still to date I will cut up some fruit and fry up some chicken grab a bottle of wine and my wife and me will hit up a double featrue at our local drive in's. It's so much nicer listening to a movie with my trucks sound system instead of those old metal speakers that you hung off your car or truck window.
