My Favorite Mustard
Inglehoffer mustard is incredible. I suggest you try some out. So far, we’ve had the stone ground (probably the best), the honey mustard, the extra hot mustard, and the horseradish (not mustard, but still good). They’re all top quality and kick butt.
Unique to Beaver Run?
When Brian and I were kids in elementary school (Beaver Run), there was a joke about mustard. Ok, it was more of a one-liner. It was simply this:
Mustard is a compound word.1
We thought it was great. Actually I still think it is. It combines scatological humor, rhyming, and a little bit of schoolin’, all in one 5 word sentence.
Ok, so now you know the joke. I figured some thing like this was all over the place in the late ’80s when Brian and I thought it was the funniest thing ever. Apparently not. I think it was unique to Beaver Run.
After searching in Google for the phrase “mustard is a compound word,” I was able to find one site where this phrase existed: deviantART. I don’t know what that site is about and I’m a bit afraid to check it out. One of the users on deviantART must know of the phrase.. Somebody mentions it in the comments section on the user’s “home page” on deviantART and I also saw it in the user’s signature on another “home page” on said site.
Anyway, I’d be interested in hearing back from others as to whether or not they grew up with this classic of comedy.
