TGIF Silly Silly Post Which Should Help You Start the Weekend Horny and Hungry

It’s Friday, I had a long week (that Wednesday Cubs game!!!), so my friend and I just spent two hours working on a very very silly personal challenge together.  An attempt to answer the question “What flavor/food best encapsulates the feeling of certain movie star’s sexiness?”  I did the men and she did the women. (also, she’s a really cool Burlesque dancer under the name “Rosemary Maybe“, just in case she ever comes to your town, you should check her out!)

This started out because we were talking about a new person coming over to watch movies with us, and trying to decide what to show her.  I wanted to be sure to show her this clip, because EVERYONE likes this clip!

 

Because I realized, Hrithik is like chocolate ice cream, even if another flavor is your favorite, everyone still loves chocolate!

 

 

And then we couldn’t stop!  Right away, the next question was Shahrukh. I had to break him down into shirtless and none shirtless flavors, because I have a very complex relationship with him.  And with food.

First, the general Shahrukh flavor, to me feels like Umami.  That new flavor name for stuff like soy sauce and tomatoes, that not-quite-salty, not-quite-sour flavor.

 

But then Shahrukh shirtless is something different.  Less challenging, but more addictive.  Theater popcorn.

 

I don’t know why, but my next thought was Akshay.  Maybe because I was just reading Twinkle’s book and he comes off very well in it?  Akshay is more like a reuben sandwich.  Almost too strong to enjoy, but with that little bite of testosterone that you really need sometimes.  Plus the sauerkraut spilling out reminds me of his chest hair.

 

Salman, I was thinking pizza.  Like really over the top greasy cheesy pizza.  Some people love it and could eat it every day, some people only like it occasionally.  But everyone gets that urge at least once in their life.

 

Ranbir, to me, is low fat cookies.  Tasty, but there’s just something that’s not quite the same as it used to be, something missing.

 

Aamir, donut holes.  Tasty little bites that come in a variety of flavors.

 

Siddharth, whipped cream.  Not very filling, no real nutritional content to it, and you would never want it just by itself.  But man!  Does it taste good!

Varun Dhawan, one of those huge gourmet cheeseburgers.  So tasty, so filling, but I get halfway in and start to think “this might be too much for me, I think I might be too old to handle this whole thing.”

 

Ranveer Singh, french fries.  Good on their own, or on the side of something else.  Mix well with multiple flavors.  And you can never really get tired of eating them!

 

Arjun Kapoor, something bitter and a little mysterious.  But with solid content underneath.  Rice and mole sauce?

 

Speaking of Arjuns, Arjun Rampal, he’s sophisticated and complex, but still addictive.  An expensive professionally put together dessert.

 

At this point we ran out of men, and I let Rosemary take over for the women.  You ready?

Madhuri, tiramisu. She’s sweet and delicious, but complex and sophisticated.  And you never get sick of her.  She has many layers and you like her at any age

 

Sridevi, chocolate chip cookies.  Because she’s warm and familiar.  And classic.

 

Alia Bhatt, a lollipop.  Because she’s young and cute and had the potential to either be iconic or rot your teeth.  And she holds your attention for the entire time she’s there, but knows when to leave.

 

Kareena, pancakes.  Because you can really like her for a while but eventually she makes you sick to your stomach.  And then later you will find yourself liking her again!

 

Anushka, potato chips.  Because it’s easy to like her and keep liking her.  And you don’t have to think too hard about it.

 

And then she also sad mean things about Aishwarya (“tofu”) and Katrina (“kale”), but I am a nice person, so I won’t repeat the details.

I will just leave you with this final thought as we begin the weekend, because I realized I am missing a vital flavor: Who is Coffee?

    How about Abhishek?

    Abhishek is like a great side dish like green bean casserole with crunchy onions on top.

    You don’t really want him as your main entree all the time but he’s great as part of a big family meal, and he’s a little silly, but heck you just love him and he reminds you of old time goodness.

    • Not so much drinking as sleep deprivation. Really, the whole city has lost its collective minds for the past 7 days, no one is really thinking straight. You know they dyed the Chicago river blue today for the official celebration? I don’t know why all the offices didn’t just shut down and let us stay home from work, instead of sitting at work im’ing each other about food and men.

      But yes, chocolate. But only if it’s really really good. Like “I have to think about this because there are so many layers to the flavor” kind of good.

  2. For me personally, I would switch Ranveer and Varun 🙂

    By the way, what is the first movie that you would show to someone who has never seen an Indian movie before?

    Like

    • K3G. I’ve done it I don’t know how many times. At least 20. You can talk over it and explain stuff without worrying about missing a plot point, the cast teaches them all the big stars, and the songs teach them all the big song genres. Plus, quick and dirty intro to the Ramayana.

      On the other hand, that only works if there is a firm “I want to see an Indian movie and I will pay attention to what you say and watch the whole thing straight through” commitment. I’ve had many many (many many many!) frustrating evenings where I have to keep pausing and explaining and interrupting conversations about other stuff and so on and so on. So my back-up is just cruising through key songs. Dard-E-Disco, Sheila, Chikna Chameli, Choli Ke Peeche, Bole Chudiyan, Kajre Re, etc, etc. At some point, they will react more to one song than another, and I will just steer into that and pull up more related stuff. And if we stop and talk about something else for a bit, or they have to leave unexpectedly, I don’t get all offended.

      Really? Varun as French fries? But he’s so thick! Ranveer is the one who is all skinny and fry like.

          • Thanks, of course I meant HSSH — I don’t know why I typed the other.

            As to K3G, son being banished by the father and another family member righting the wrong has been eternal trope of Hindi films. Nothing to do with the Ramayana. In any case, to specifically counter your argument, in the Ramayana it wasn’t the father who banished the older son, and the younger one failed to bring him back. So where’s the analogy?

          • “Older son gets banished from the home, younger son goes to bring him back.”

            These are literally Karan Johar’s words when he explains how K3G is an adaptation of the Ramayana. I do agree with you that this is an eternal trope in Hindi movies though.

        • Hey, I’m not the one who says it’s the Ramayana, Karan Johar is the one who says that! 🙂 The interval freeze frame is Hrithik standing in front of the Lakshman statue in their home altar with the Ram and Sita statues to the right, and I think it’s right after he says “I swear, I will bring my brother and sister-in-law home.”

          And Shahrukh is first introduced arriving home at Diwale with that whole song number that is about Ram and also Shahrukh.

          It’s not the biggest Ramayana movie, if I really wanted to do that, you’re right, I would do HSSH, or maybe Khalnayak. But it’s a nice little bonus when I am showing it, after that interval shot it gives a natural lead in for me to explain the broad strokes of the story to people, and how Indian films tend to allude to religious stories in a way that Western art doesn’t really any more (used to, back as recently as the 1950s, but doesn’t now). And general importance of the brothers relationship and the brother/sister-in-law relationship.

  3. I didn’t realize going in that this was going to be all about shirtless men. But I’m all for it. 🙂

    However, why, why, did you have to bring up Akshay and his chest hair? The man has been waxed smooth for many years now, and just when I’d succeeded in losing all memories of his hairy body, you post this again? Bad girl!

    • Just be grateful I didn’t dig up an old picture of Anil!

      I feel bad every time I see Akshay’s smooth chest, because can you imagine the pain he must go through? Based on the old photos, I’m guess his hair grows thick and dark and fast. So he must have to wax it constantly throughout filming! The poor man! At least Shahrukh and Aamir were basically hairless to begin with, so they don’t have to sacrifice for the new style, but poor Akshay must really be suffering.

  4. I also have to quarrel with your friend’s choice for Sridevi. She’s far more dazzling and effervescent that chocolate cookies. I can’t think of anything offhand, but one of those flambe desserts, maybe, with the brandy poured over them and lit as it’s being served? With champagne on the side?

    • Thanks! I kind of want to make this a running post every Friday, only I’ve run out of food and people. I’ll have to see if I can come up with something equally vapid and pointless for next week.

  5. 1. How did I miss this post on Friday? 2. SRK=coffee for me. Strong and good and I like it everyday. I like it hot or cold, black, with milk, or in fancy coffee drinks,and it also mixes well with other flavors like chocolate and alcohol! 🙂

    Fun post! Looking forward to more discussions about the really important things in life! 🙂

    • See, not coffee for me. Because I don’t like it every day! I like it on Monday and Tuesday morning with plenty of cream and sugar, and then by Wednesday just the thought of it starts to make my tummy hurt. Unlike Shahrukh, who I can have 7 days a week and he will never make me ill.
