Episode 37 – “Patriotic Pasta”
(The scene: 1776, a colonial tavern. Sam Adams and Benedict Arnold are dining together)
BENEDICT ARNOLD: (to the waitress) I’ll have a plate of spaghetti, with a broiled chicken breast on top. (The waitress takes the order and leaves.)
SAM ADAMS: As I was saying, we must round up those who are still loyal to the British throne.
ARNOLD.: But those ruffians! They are so crude – I might get hurt.
ADAMS: Ben, don’t be a coward! Help us capture the opposition!
ARNOLD.: But such unpleasantness! Why don’t you get Nathan Hale instead. I hear that he has like seven lives to give to his country! (The waitress arrives with Arnold’s order, placing the dish on the table in front of him)
ADAMS: (disgusted) You chicken! Catch a Tory!
ARNOLD: Hey! That’s a great name for this dish! Chicken Catch-a-Tory!
(Tune in next week for episode 38, where the Dinnertime Dramatists present part one of “The Egg Salad Story”)
One thought on “Great Moments in Culinary History”
I’m catching up on posts at the moment Dave but look forward to the egg salad story.
