A Trip Down Drury Lane

Muffin Top ...



Do those two words make you think of this ...






 Or this ...





I suppose the clean minded. The righteous. The pure of heart, still think of moist sugary sweetness when they hear the term muffin top. But I'll confess. a cynical, wise cracker like myself thinks of cellulite and too small clothes when i hear muffin top.

Now I'll be the first to admit I've gone right on passed the muffin top state of unfitness and progressed to the whole damn cake. Truth be told I think muffins are kind of dumb. (I'm talking the pastry here) Those stupid little paper wrappers only get in the way and I happen to like the moist middle (of cakes people, keep your mind out of the gutter) the best, so to break a good thing up into a dozen min cakes seems asinine.

But to each his own. I watched Seinfeld back in the day so I know some people like muffins and especially their tops. But with the popularity of the slang term, muffin top, I must wonder what the hell Malt-O Meal was thinking when they produced this product ...



What's next ... Boob shaped breakfast cereal called Ripe Melons? ... Bologna Ponies? I bet as soon as you poured those suckers out, they'd be trying to get right back inside the box.

The later, like you.

How about the Saints matchup, either Hawks or Rams, very nice, very nice.

Travis Erwin said...

Rocketstar - Yeah I like the match up but the Saints have played rather lackadaisical all year. I hope they can turn it on when the want but a second round game at ATL will be tough.

Phats said...

The first thing I thought about was the seinfeld episode then I saw that second picture and about threw up haha

Here's to a super bowl repeat for our Saints in 2011!

Ain't no saints in Detroit. But at least they aren't blueberry muffins right now. 5-16 Woooohoooo!

Old Kitty said...

What are Bologna Ponies when they're at home?!?!?!

Seriously!! I haven't a clue!!

Take care

Travis Erwin said...

Phats - I'd love to see a repeat, but the team doesn't seem near as hungry this year outside of Brees and I'm not sure he can do it alone.

Walking Man - The Lions are a team on the rise Love Suh but Stafford has to stay healthy.

Old Kitty - The Bolognie Pony is a slang term to describe a man's penis.

Melissa Marsh said...

Do I dare say anything about the Cornhuskers and their miserable bowl effort? I didn't even watch or listen to the game.

Barrie said...

I loved that Seinfeld episode where Elaine ate all the muffin tops and donated the rest to a food bank. ;)

sybil law said...

Annie said...

Well, I gotta admit, the second photo never came to mind at the term "Muffin Top". But the second photo brought to mind the thought that she couldn't possibly have looked in a mirror and thought that outfit was a good idea.

Phats said...

If Brees can do it alone, he pretty much walks on water like I thought he did! haha. Come on we can do it GO SAINTS! :)

I am pure of heart because the muffin came to mind. But that could be because the wife just made a baker's dozen of blueberry To Die For Muffins the other day.

Travis Erwin said...

Melissa- It was a disappointing underachieving season for the Huskers and i think it's time for the Off coordinator to go.

Barrie - Didn't they start a store that sold only muffin tops.

Sybil - If Dave Grohl dug muffin tops you'd adapt one for him.

Travis Erwin said...

Annie - I'm definitely a whole cake kinda guy.

Driller - The world would bea better place if everyone looked in the mirror before they stepped out the door.

Sarah - Thanks, I added you as well.

Travis Erwin said...

Phats - I'm hopeful if a tad reserved. Geaux Saints!

David - I never doubted you were anything but pure of heart.
