Subject: BS: A short way with trolls
From: McGrath of Harlow
Date: 30 Sep 06 - 08:02 PM

I was looking at the FAQ page on the Daily Kos, which I sometimes visit, and warmly recommend, and came across this passage about how they deal with trolls:

Trolling is a sad reality of internet life. Most trolls tend to be blatant, posting comments or diaries that are clearly intended to provoke an angry response. ...

Instead of writing detailed rebuttals of whatever claims or argument the troll is making, the standard response to a troll diary is to post comments containing recipes for tasty dishes. Plenty of examples can be found in the Troll Diary tag. An entire cookbook of recipes has been collected and is being sold as a fundraiser.


I like that. Perhaps we could try something like that. It'd at least mean that trolls could serve a useful function gastronomically, and even financially.

(Rather disappointingly the link to the Kos cookbook included in that FAQ didn't work.)

Kill, pluck and gut a chicken. Stuff the body cavities with garlic. Pour a cup of stout over the bird which should then go into a pre-heated oven and roast for about 25 minutes a pound at about 350 degrees. Baste often. When the bird is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it 'set' for about a half hour. Then cut it and serve. Oh, yeah, make other stuff with it. Serve that, too.

Jellied Moose Nose

1 Upper jawbone of a moose
1 Onion; sliced
1 Garlic clove
1 tb Mixed pickling spice
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Pepper
1/4 c Vinegar

1. Cut the upper jaw bone of the moose just below the eyes.

2. Place in a large kettle of scalding water and boil for 45 minutes.
3. Remove and chill in cold water.

4. Pull out all the hairs - these will have been loosened by the boiling
and should come out easily ( like plucking a duck).

5. Wash thoroughly until no hairs remain.

6. Place the nose in a kettle and cover with fresh water.

7. Add onion, garlic, spices and vinegar

8. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the meat is tender.
Let cool overnight in the liquid.

9. When cool, take the meat out of the broth, and remove and discard the
bones and the cartilage. You will have two kinds of meat, white meat
from the bulb of the nose, and thin strips of dark meat from along the
bones and jowls.

10. Slice the meat thinly and alternate layers of white and dark meat in a
loaf pan.

11. Reheat the broth to boiling, then pour the broth over the meat in the
loaf pan.

12. Let cool until jelly has set. Slice and serve cold.

A rich, sweet and nourishing broth

1, 5"-6" piece of Kelp
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium winter squash, cubed (about 1 quart)
1/3 cup parsley, chopped
Miso to taste
Lightly rinse Kelp, check for tiny shells.
In a soup pot, cover kelp with water and simmer 10 minutes.
Remove, cut into small pieces.
Return to pot with the onion and squash, add water to cover.
5. Simmer until squash is soft, 20 -30 minutes, or pressure cook 5-10 minutes.
Puree miso with broth, add to pot. Garnish with parsley.
Suggestion: Omit parsley, add broccoli flowers and /or kale, cook until bright green.

Option: If, for appearance sake, you wish to have no Kelp pieces in the finished soup, do not return the cooked kelp to the pot. Most of the nutrition will remain in the stock

recipe for catching those pesky guests?

"Grab Your Wife's.... Pantyhose! I go fishing rain or shine. So I was thinking to myself what stinks real bad (catfish are attracted to smell) so cat poo is really smelly (we all know that) and you take cat poo and mix it with a can of tuna put a little cheese in and put it all in a food processor (make sure you don't use the one you prepare food in) and you mix it all up. Add garlic if necessary and put outside for 2 to 3 hours. Grab some pantyhose out of your wife's drawer and put the mixture in it and cast out in deep water. Once they smell it you better watch out - I caught a 43 pounder so try it!"

Nonsense! Take old cheese (preferably Limburger or some other stinky type), the older the better, and thoroughly squeeze it into and through raw liver (beef, pork, sheep, whatever -- it doesn't matter as long as it's fairly fresh and nicely bloody). When you've worked the cheese it, add a bit of flour to firm it all up somewhat and put it somewhere to age (the best place is under your brother's bed). When the odor is such that your mother opens all the windows and complains about your dead socks, the catfish bait is ready. Mix in a little more flour if you must, and mold treble hoooks into the middle of it.

Fish it on the bottom. Guarenteed to take Big Blues and Muds.

Speak for yourself GUEST(S?) I find it very funny and entertaining myself. Irritated trolls are funny too.

Here's one I prepared earlier:


SPIDER SALAD

Steam your spiders live, as this is a safe method of both asphyxiating them and keeping them crisp and fresh. You'll want to chop the legs off the larger spiders and quarter them. Prepare a bed of romaine lettuce, parsley, Portobello mushrooms in season (chopped), radishes, and scallions. Toss in approximately 1 cup chopped spiders, much as you would in a seafood salad, then a generous amount of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and fresh ground pepper. Bon appetit!

Experts may be able to fight real fires with fire.

It has been clearly shown that no matter how much fun it may seem - fighting online rubbish with rubbish - only buries us all under more rubbish.

There remains only one way - but then you can't be seen to be making any judgements and it just isn't anywhere near so much fun.

The very best judgement is to be seen to completely ignore anything you may judge as attempts to intentionally disrupt, divert and prevent discussion.

Years back there was a bloke lived somewhere near Sheffield, England, known as Brian "the Potty Poet". He self published small booklets which he sold for the price of a pint and gave any profits to charity, sending disabled children on trips to Lourdes.
One of Brian's books contained recipes which JennyO would probably approve of.
The only recipe I can recall (as I cannot locate my copy) was for "Chuck Berry Pie".
The recipe went something like-

As the purpose of the beer is for the nourishment of the one supervising the 9-day(!!!?) cooking of the critter, is it, like,um, a double truckload? Or what?

I see - so that is what is known down-under as a "slab". Do you think a slab of Coopers Sparkling Ale would do at a pinch? I might need several slabs if I decide to try this one for my next dinner party - takes 6 weeks all up:

Elephant Stew
           
1 Elephant
200 c Water
700 ts Salt
Pepper, to taste
650 (10 oz.) cans brown gravy
2 Rabbits (optional)

Remove tusks; wash well; cut into chunks - takes about 2 weeks.

Place meat in large kettles; season with salt and pepper. Cover with water and gravy. Cook over kerosene fire at 455 degrees for about 4 weeks, or until tender.

This amount should serve 3,800 people; however, if more guests are expected, you may add 2 rabbits the last hour of cooking, but do so only if necessary because most people do not like to find hare in their stew.

The recipe provided so very long ago for "Jellied Moose Nose" seems not to include any gelatin or pectin, etc. I sat and wondered: How can this be?

The Shambles' post just above (which effectively killed this thread for a couple of years) may have provided the answer in its first line, "Hot snot and bogey pir..."

I suppose you just need to make sure that the moose-nose comes with its own built-in supply of moose-snot. That'll make the final product "set"!

By the way, back in 2006 all this talk of cooking moose would not have inspired any thoughts of a certain Alaskan governor. Not so today!
