Face Food

Idea: “Face Food” — a family friendly restaurant where every dish is arranged to resemble a human face.

I’ve been feeding my bedridden wife and 3-year-old daughter face food lately. Pictured here is a pizza roll and green bean dish presented in the guise of Salvador Dali.

This is my attempt to pick up where Cubeland Mystic left off (even though the beans were purchased frozen and in bulk from Costco rather than grown in my own garden).

Happy Divine Mercy Sunday, folks! Peas be with you.

    Not trying to steal anybody’s thunder here, but I’d like to direct Rufus to korrektiv/unpublishedfiles/BNIYH/partthree/chapternine, towards the end. Note to Rufus: Last time I saw it, it was between a shingle and a brick, propping up the legless corner of your couch in the basement.

  2. Quin Finnegan says

    Although this particular likeness really is incredible. Especially the mustachio.

  3. Rufus McCain says

    I’ll check the reference. Whatever it is probably embedded in my sub-conchus. Or yet another Dopplethinger. Btw, I synopsized BNIYH in a comment on Godsbody a few days back.

  4. Rufus McCain says

    How was the abbey on the hill? How goes the home hunting?

  5. Quin Finnegan says

    The fool on the hill was pressed, gently pressed, to consider his station in life and the gifts with which he has been truly blessed, and how exactly he might make the best use of those gifts.

    The home hunter is still hunting. Not a winner in the bachelor-pad-of-all-bachelor-pads sweepstakes, unfortunately. And now hunting for a trick set of wheels as well. The Kamaro is kaput.

  6. Rufus McCain says

    Now I remember that scene. The Jolly Roger. Maybe I’ll open up Face Food right next door to Queequeg’s.

  7. Rufus McCain says

    I guess you’ll be riding the bus as well as driving it. Psychiatrist/patient sort of scenario.

  8. Matthew Lickona says

    Blame McCain for this one. I can’t have you publishing your novel before I publish mine. The stories are too close. By the time I’m finished blackballing you, not even the vanity presses will take your stuff…

  9. Rufus McCain says

    My novel is going to be called Face Food.

  10. Quin Finnegan says

    Matthew, I remember something about a novel mentioned on your blog months or even a year back. Something about it being so controversial it would ruin your career? Forthunately, I have no career to ruin.

    And that’s interesting about the stories being so close. Mine being autobiographical. A roman-a-clef, I mean. Does this mean I have another doppelgänger? Spooky.

    I went looking for the synopsis that Rufus said he’d posted – couldn’t find it. If it’s really out there, it probably means there will be doppelgänger novels popping up all over the place.

  11. Rufus McCain says

    Quin, you can find the needle in the Godsbody haystack, here.

  12. Quin Finnegan says

    Wow. Thanks for the blurb. I’ve bookmarked it so I can go back to it, again and again and again. Vanity!
