Persuasive Food Service in the Arts


Persuasive Service in the Arts

The Cartoon:

"The knuckle sandwich sounds good." (note waitress' biceps)
by Danny Shanahan in the New Yorker, January 23, 2012.  

Non-Fat Cappuccino:

Upon finishing my chuckle here, what immediately comes to mind is the very short film "Non-Fat" (UK  ) in which a fat barrister has a problem with a female customer who is briskly demanding non-fat milk in her cappuccino.  Oliver Manzi,director.  "Shortz Non-Fat Cappuccino," 2011 (53 seconds long).

 Forgive me. It is not PC. It is cruel and unmannerly, but I laugh every time.

Also, see independent filmmaker Jim Jaramusch (b. Ohio, 1953) "Coffee and Cigarettes" (2003) and "Night on Earth." Also, "Coffee" a Short"-Film www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/133577, and many others,
