Lunch vs Dinner

by thunderbird 22 replies
I know that this is a very contentious subject, but what's better -- lunch or dinner? Please be civil and leave ideology, religion, politics, sexual orientation, race, age, or weight out of the discussion.

      That was Brilliant.
      I had a short argument with my son this last weekend. He asked if I wanted to got to dinner with him. I said "Do you mean lunch or supper?"

      He said "Dinner". And I still didn't know which he meant.

      See....to me, that can mean anything after breakfast.

      I eat lunch, and then..when I get home...I eat supper. For some reason, I never thought of it as Dinner.

      Come to think of it...if Pluto is a dog...what's Goofy?

      And if sponges grow in the ocean, why is the ocean so deep? It seems like there should just be lots of fat sponges around.

      And why are there Easter eggs..but an Easter Bunny? Bunnies don't lay eggs. And which came first? The Easter Bunny...or the egg?

      And, when it rains...why isn't it just one giant drop that falls on a city and drowns everyone?

      And why does the check out girl always ask "Is there anything else?" when there are ten people behind me?

      And why do people wait to figure out what they want to eat...until they are at the front of the line at Taco Bell?

      And why do I gain two pounds when I eat a banana split? They don't even weight two pounds!

      And why can't I fly?

      There. I think I got it all out now.

      If I knew we had a choice, I'd eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and supper. But I don't think my wife would buy into it.

        I love the way your mind works, Claude.

        The world really is full of anomalies. I often dream I can fly but I have this paranoia about hitting power lines...(I know, weird, huh?)

        I have a book that is called the book of useless information and it is a really good book to read and reread.

        Maybe I should start posting some of the better items from its many pages.

          I have to completely agree about the power lines. Every few months I dream I have some sort of gyrocopter and really enjoy flying around in it, but takeoffs and landings are scary precisely because even in my dream state I'm concerned about hitting a power line.

          Crikey! Even my dreams are sensible!

          BTW I tend to fly over forests and suburban areas with lots of trees. You?

        Yes. I've often pondered this question in the wee hours of the morning or amongst my goats, llamas, and sheepdog on a starlit night.

          You have goats and llamas ... with a sheepdog? This must confuse your sheepdog greatly. :rolleyes:

            Actually I live in an urban condo and don't even have a chihuahua, never mind a sheepdog. But, yes, the sheepdog of my imagination was greatly confused.

              It must be hell living in an urban condo with goats and llamas then.

                Especially without a sheepdog to keep them herded.

    In what context, T-bird?

    I tend to prefer dinner, myself, because I can never eat much at lunchtime, even when I'm quite well ... and for a date, dinner's far better, isn't it? But I'm not sure I'm answering your question? :confused:

    I think I did ... I'm not quite sure how I'd work any of them in, anyway, to be honest? (Though I suppose "weight" might be said to have some tangential relevance, in so far as we're talking about meals?) :confused:

    It depends on what you choose to eat. Both can be as good or as bad as each other. If you want more accurate replies, maybe give us some extra info?

    I prefer "dunch" because it's more versatile.

    Neither. Breakfast is best . . . with a beautiful, atheistic, non-political, man-eating nymph from the land of make believe, age 20-30, and 100-140lb. You know, the dish that you met the night before, in your dreams probably.
