    Gigi has not commented on the pic

    She might not have got as far as the download. I'm sure she'd have said something by now if she did.

    our ESL office

    if she starts swearing at you in a language you dont understand.
    Actually, I understand Taiwanese cussing - it's the Cantonese cussing that I can't follow...the funny thing is that with a Taiwan accent, occasionally normal words sound like swear words - shirt sometimes comes out like ****, and such. Needless to say, it adds to the general hilarity at the office here....

    What sort of masturbation is going on here?

    Nacho Cheese? Ninjettes? Braed men? Would it be to much to ask to have some sort of discussion that might be germaine to the topic of Kung Fu?

    beware the limburger fist though.

    I blame Gene

    Next thing you know, there will be an expose on the Ninjettes and retro Got qi shirts.

    You should blame Gene, too. It should be a given.

    As for cheese, whatever happened to CheezWiz?

    Good gravy

    I just couldn't pass this article up. It's not nacho ninjettes by any stretch.

    Gravy fight and food fest a huge success
    By Sally Henfield

    A MARTIAL arts student was crowned world gravy wrestling champion and said: "I only won because I could stand up!"

    Sumo warriors, martial arts specialists and a chef were among competitors at the first international championships, organised as part of Pennine Lancashire Festival of Food and Culture.

    And after 40 minutes of gruelling grappling in the cold mix of meat juices, chopped up vegetables and cornflour, Ian Marsden and two friends emerged world champions.

    The members of the Tower Shukokai Karate Club, based in Darwen, wowed the judges with their wrestling skills - but the final vote came from the crowd who cheered them on to victory.

    The wrestling ring was set up in Sainsbury's car park in Darwen, where there were a series of three minutes bouts, with points awarded for pinning opponents to the floor.

    However, the scores were equal at the end of the competition so the final decision was made using applause levels generated by the spectators.

    The new - and first ever - world champions of gravy wrestling were Ian, Martin Skipper and the mysterious 'Super Roy the Darwen Destroyer.' Team leader Ian, of Redearth Road, Darwen, said: "It feels great to be a world champion. I don't think our karate skills did us any favours.

    "We were only any good because we seemed to be able to stand up a bit longer than the others."

    The event raised over £500 for the East Lancashire Hospice, Blackburn. Event organiser Jackie Livesey said: "It was fantastic - much better than we had hoped.

    Despite being touted as an international competition - and even gaining coverage in the Bangkok Times - the furthest a competitor travelled was from Leicester.

    Joel Hicks, 28, who dressed as a chef, said: "I go up and down the country taking part in wacky sports for charity. This was great fun, well worth the drive."

    Other events at the festival have included a 1940s Hits from the Blitz dinner dance, an evening with celebrity cook Keith Floyd, guided walks looking for tasty treats in hedgerows; cooking demonstrations; mushroom hunts; a chef cricket match and a waiters' race. For the first time, events will continue through to October.

    Mrs Livesey said: "The festival has been a huge success - but we will be looking to bigger and better things next year.

    "All of our events are aimed at showing people the delights of food and the fun that can be had with food."

    A day of mourning

    All the ninjettes are wearing cheese-colored armbands. This is a very sad day.
    Carmen Rocha dies at 77; waitress credited with introducing L.A. to nachos
    By Mary Rourke, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
    October 17, 2008
    Carmen Rocha, a waitress at El Cholo Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles for many years who is credited with introducing the city to nachos, the now-ubiquitous appetizer of tortilla chips, cheese and jalapeño peppers, has died. She was 77.

    Rocha, whose photograph appears on one of the restaurant's souvenir postcards, died at her home in Los Angeles on Oct. 9. The cause was cancer, according to Rand Salisbury, whose family owns El Cholo.

    She started working at the restaurant in 1959 and won a following with her warm, outgoing personality. "Carmen was wonderful, to me and to everybody," actor Jack Nicholson, a longtime regular at El Cholo, said this week. "It's a community loss," he said of her death.

    For a special treat Rocha sometimes went into the kitchen and made her customers an order of nachos, an item not included on the menu. She followed a recipe she learned in San Antonio, where she grew up, layering tortilla wedges, shredded cheddar cheese and slices of jalapeño pepper, warming the dish in the oven. Before long she had requests from all over the dining room and her nachos were added to the menu.

    "Carmen Rocha introduced an iconic dish and helped popularize it," said Merrill Shindler, who wrote "El Cholo Cookbook: Recipes and Lore From California's Best Loved Mexican Kitchen" in 1998. "Now, everybody eats nachos. If they were called 'Carmens,' not nachos, her name would be remembered forever."

    Rocha worked at the original El Cholo on Western Avenue for close to 40 years and often socialized with her co-workers on Sundays when they stopped by her family's weekly open house. "She was a very loving person," said Linda Mendez, a waitress and longtime friend of Rocha. "People came to Carmen and asked her advice, even her customers did. You could talk to her."

    Before Rocha retired in the 1990s, the restaurant lounge was renamed "Carmen's Cantina." By then she had been through knee surgery and was working "with a cane in one hand and a pitcher of margaritas in the other," Salisbury said.

    "She would have liked to keep working, but she had to quit for health reasons."

    Born Carmen Salas on Oct. 6, 1931, in Seguin, Texas, she moved to San Antonio with her parents when she was young. She married Rudy Rocha in the 1940s and they moved to Los Angeles in 1959. The couple had six children before they divorced. Several later moved into houses down the street from their mother.

    In November 1970, Rocha was at work when she learned that one of her three sons, Robert, who was in the Army, had been killed in Vietnam. She fainted and later couldn't stop crying, but the next day she was back at work. "People asked her, 'What are you doing here?' and Carmen told them, 'This restaurant is my home,' " Ron Salisbury, president of El Cholo and Rand's father, recalled this week.

    When her son's name was inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., his middle name was spelled incorrectly. Instead of Robert Salas Rocha, it was written Robert Silas Rocha.

    Carmen and her family spent close to 20 years trying to get the mistake fixed. Their first two appeals to the government were turned down. They were told that only "gross misspellings" were corrected. A third try brought change. The name of Rocha's son was re-inscribed. She and family members went to see it, as guests of the government, for a Memorial Day ceremony.

    "If someone died for their country, he should at least have his name spelled correctly," Rocha said in a 2002 interview with The Times.

    In recent years, Rocha worked as a volunteer at Pasadena City Hall, took computer training classes for senior citizens and kept up her Sunday open house parties.

    Rocha is survived by five children, 14 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

    Another day of mourning

    Nacho Bell Grande - a masterpiece of haute cuisine! I am in mourning.

    Taco Bell Founder Dies, We Remember Great Moments in Bell History

    This is a sad time in the history of fast food in America. A few months back the Taco Bell dog died and on Jan. 17, Glen Bell, the founder of Taco Bell, died as well. A former Marine, Bell started out selling hot dogs, then realized the world wanted Nachos Bell Grande. So let's take a moment to look back on the dynasty he created:

    * Bell franchised Taco Bell back in 1964, and from that day on people all around the world experienced affordable, semi-Mexican delight with ease.

    * In 1978, PepsiCo bought out Taco Bell, officially making the restaurant chain into a monster of affordable goodness with the best commercials money could buy.

    * In 1992, Taco Bell attempted to expand into Mexico. This kind of failed. However, they are now trying again, only branding themselves as an American restaurant. Go figure.

    * Also in 1992, during the L.A. riots, Taco Bell recognized that people need tacos, so they rebuilt and reopened one demolished store in 14 hours.

    * In 1993, the movie "Demolition Man" predicted Taco Bell would be the only restaurant in the future (after winning the "franchise wars").

    But that's just the beginning of the story that launched a million "run for the border" jokes. Read on for more and vids from some classic T-Bell ad campaigns ...

    * Gidget the Chihuahua is Taco Bell's most famous mascot and was in commercials from 1997 to the year 2000, despite the fact that sales actually slumped during that time. Still, everyone loves Chihuahuas. Except the people who felt it was a racist stereotype. And Godzilla.

    * In 2008, Taco Bell produced a series of ads asking rapper 50 Cent to change his name to 79 cent, 89 cent or 99 cent as part of a campaign featuring their low-priced awesomeness. Unfortunately, no one told 50 Cent, so he sued Taco Bell. The whole deal was settled out of court after Taco Bell offered to pay $10,000 if he'd do it for a day and presumably 50 Cent wasn't game. Taco Bell opted to use this ad campaign instead.

    * Taco Bell opened several locations in China in 2008 that even served alcoholic drinks. The stores closed the same year.

    * In 2009, TV pitchman Billy Mays, best known for selling you Mighty Putty and Orange Glow, had actually signed a contract to start filming Taco Bell commercials, however his untimely death happened a month before filming. But the same year, this video becomes the most annoying and unforgettable thing ever.

    * Currently, Taco Bell sells more than 2 billion tacos per year. That is a hell of a lot of tacos. Mr. Bell, you will be missed, but your legacy lives on.
    Search "nacho" on this forum and 142 threads come up. I'm very proud of that. I think Mr. Bell would be proud too.

    7-layer dip

    7-layer dip is a lot like nachos turned inside out. That being said, I would marry a woman like this. Seriously.
