    The Blues Brothers is a little confusing, because although Aykroyd and Belushi are not brothers, in the movies Jake and Elwood are.
  8. What To Eat In Songs

    OK, true story... I'm a huge fan of the late great Warren Zevon. About 10 years ago I was walking through the Soho district in London (it wasn't raining) at dinnertime, and I came across the restaurant mentioned in "Werewolves Of London" -- Lee Ho Fook's. I figured there was no better place for me to eat that night. Now, I wasn't going to order the beef chow mein, it being pretty much the height of the Mad Cow Disease scare in the UK (and I prefer veggie lo mein, anyway). But, I checked the menu just for laughs. All of the dishes were represented by their Chinese names first, then the English translations underneath, and then a description of the dish in English. I stared at the menu for five minutes -- there was no beef chow mein! Geez, how could that be? Then, I noticed it -- in a separate section, in enormous bold letters, and the only entrée that had neither a Chinese name nor a description: "BEEF CHOW MEIN". Evidently I was not the first person who'd walked into Lee Ho Fook's looking for a dish made famous by a twisted, late 70's American novelty song. :-) (The restaurant has since closed, but I still have the receipt pinned to my office corkboard.)
