Somehow my only reaction to that was ‘god, he must have had awful old-man smell.’

Ok. I love ketchup and I love cottage cheese but those two things together? Eww.

Ketchup on cottage cheese is like the xenophobic man’s paneer.

FTA:

[quote]President Reagan kept a jar of jelly beans on his desk in the Oval Office and on Air Force One during his two terms, from 1980 to 1988. “You can tell a lot about a fella’s character by whether he picks out all of one color or just grabs a handful,” he said.
[/quote]

Is this some sort of liberal jab or am I reading too much into it?

At least it would taste less of cottage cheese, I guess.


#9

My grandpa did that, too. Ketchup on cottage cheese. I’m glad I ate few meals with him.


#10

Is anyone surprised by this? We are talking about Nixon, after all.


#11

Was he Amish or Mennonite or Moravian by any chance? In my curiosity on the topic, I found a number of references to “schmierkase” and cottage cheese


#12

‘Flabby, pasty-skinned, riddled with phlebitis—a good Republican body’

#14

Good question, but no, he was German, and a man of questionable food tastes.

Futurama quote from Nixon’s head.

From Nixon’s head but over mine, apparently… :smile:


#17

Awful, awful man.

Makes me wonder what Trump considers a delicacy… Cheeto smoothie?

Funny, that’s exactly the reaction I have to Trump’s victory.

You’re not the only one!
