Let's Do Lunch

"I'll have my people call your people and we'll set up a lunch."

Whether you're a high-profile Hollywood mogul or a lowly office worker wanting an hour away from the grind LUNCH is a popular mid-day break.

Lunch started as short break around the middle of the day between two more substantive meals at the beginning and ending of the day.  These days it's the social highlight of the day.

Be it a brown bag in an office lunch room.  A quick run to a fast-food joint.  Or a liesurely "business" luncheon.  Everyone stops and eats.

It might be lunch at a restaurant where they make lunch just like mom used to make...



It might be lunch in the animal kingdom.  They have to eat, too...




These guys give new meaning to "out to lunch"...



You may want to theft-proof your lunch.  Here's one way...




Some people have a liquid lunch...



Some people tie one on...



Some over eat.  The just don't know when to quit...


The Japanese give their customers a choice of fast food.  It redifines "a quickie"...


Speaking of which, here's one of my all-time favourite lunch scenes from the movies.  It's from the movie "When Harry met Sally"...





Head on over to Theme Thursday to see what other bloggers had for "lunch" today!

I would totally have Meg Ryan for lunch.

Is this not where you were going with that?
California Girl said…
You know, I don't think I ever thought about when the cafeteria people ate. Those poor folk. Kids abuse them so much.
Donnie said…
For me lunch is/was usually nothing more than a cold beer break. Worked for me.
Me-Me King said…
Mercy, is it hot in here or is it just me?

Brian: The killer's the line "I'll have what she's having."
nonamedufus said…
HH: Thanks. Hungry?
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog: Come for the egg salad, stay for the orgasm!
nonamedufus said…
California Girl: Yeah, but they know what went into the food! That's why you never see them eating.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Lunch? I thought beer was the "breakfast" of champions?
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Um, ah, I don't know.
Ed said…
I love the anti-theft bag. I would have invented something like that. I hate when people come up with my ideas before I've thought of them...d'oh!
nonamedufus said…
VE: Yeah, it looks like a bad balogna sandwich.
C.M. Jackson said…
lunch was never so good and funny--thanks and I'll have what she's haveing;-)
I love lunch, but not with people. I like to grab a book or a paper and eat alone while I read. Don't know why that is, because I'm pretty social the rest of the time. Downright effusive, in fact. But lunch is me time, if I have a choice.
nonamedufus said…
C.M.: Glad you enjoyed it!
nonamedufus said…
Mike: Maybe if you slowed down and chewed with your mouth closed other people might eat with you! ;)
I love the fact that I get an entire hour for lunch, which means I can buzz home and relax with the Wonder Dog before heading back into the fray.
Uh..."Racist Corn Dog Contest"? I think that photo deserves a follow-up of some kind.

I'd think of something clever, but I'm off to lunch.

Frank: Do you think the guy looks like Glenn Beck? If the T-shirt fits...
PattiKen said…
Great pictures. And the "Sally's lunch" scene is always hilarious, no matter how many times you see it. Thanks for a good lunchtime laugh.
nonamedufus said…
PattiKen: Did you know that was director Rob Reiner's mother in that scene who says "I'll have what she's having"?
Baino said…
Those baggies are genius!
nonamedufus said…
Baino: It's not easy being green!

Freakin' hysterical. The construction dudes are just too creepy. I can't even eat in high heels.

Hey, if you want the video to fit just change the width in the beginning and end to 430 in the html before you publish the post.
Dreamhaven said…
Great places and types of lunch. Now I have to watch that movie
nonamedufus said…
Jayne: ...lunch in high heels! Good line. I changed the vid width to 340, and it worked! Thanks.
nonamedufus said…
Dreamhaven: The movie's a classic. Very funny film.
Jaime said…

nonamedufus said…
Jamie: How do you like them? Rare or well done?
Uh..."Racist Corn Dog Contest"? I think that photo deserves a follow-up of some kind.

I'd think of something clever, but I'm off to lunch.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post... The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in. Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All . (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song) Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress... I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparentl

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki
