ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A grief-stricken Redditor asked by a friend if there was anything he needed quoted the Simpson's episode in which Barney's Japanese girlfriend requests "A single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man's hat." The friend obliged.
My grandma died, and a good friend asked: "Is there anything you need?" As a joke, I said: "A single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man's hat." The next day: (imgur.com)
A perfume with strong vanilla notes like ‘Hanae Mori’.
I hope he washed that plum off before eating it. Heck, I hope he ate it. His friend must’ve gone through a lot of trouble to pull that off.
Invalid. Glass bowl inside the hat. Needs more authenticity.
You don’t wear hats much, do you?
Number eight……number eight……
curious minds want to know what the perfume choice was, and how much it cost to get enough to make a plum float!
All you need is a proper waterproof hat. One of those waxed ones would do.
That’s the sign of a true friend, right there.
Working in a bar, we did this with a cheap bowler hat using five measures of gin, three measures of St. Germain elderflower liqueur and some mango-flavoured sparkling mineral water plus Fee Brothers grapefruit bitters. We lined the hat with petroleum jelly.
Luckily, that bowler was only 30 bucks. Never would I try it with my Lincoln Bennett.
PS. I should’ve mentioned that this was never served to a cuntstomer. For the love of The Simpsons!
…but the joke is that Moe already has it ready, right next to a mug of beer, like it’s something that people order all the time.
You take that away and the joke is just “Boy, that Yoko Ono sure is weird!”
You take THAT away and there’s no joke.
“… delivered to a ski boot”?
If a friend did that for me, I’d laugh my arse off and burst into tears simultaneously.
Now put together something with Tom Collins mix, cloves, and a frozen pie crust.
