Paint It Red

The iconic New York Deli Cup recreated in ceramic form, to allow you to make your home feel like a diner. Rude service, and tipping are optional.

Since about a third of all of the operational diners are here in New Jersey I'm tempted to recycle a previous post of diner links, but instead a few bits of diner lingo to round out your vocabulary:

  • Soup jockey: Waitress
  • Ladybug: Fountain Man
  • Bubble Dancer: Dishwasher
  • Angel: Sandwich Man
  • Gallery: Booth
  • In the alley: Served as a side dish
  • Lumber: A toothpick
  • Mike and Ike or The twins: Salt and pepper shakers
  • Hemorrhage: Ketchup
  • Mississippi Mud or Yellow paint: Mustard
  • Warts: Olives
  • Flowing Mississippi: A black coffee
  • No cow: Without milk
  • A blonde with sand: Coffee with cream and sugar
  • Gravel train: Sugar bowl
  • Mystery in the alley: A side order of hash
  • Blowout patches: Pancakes
  • Bloodhounds in the Hay: Hot dogs and Sauerkraut

    A friend took me to a New York style restaurant and all the waiters bossed you around. I laughed so hard that the waiters thought I was looney - well, maybe I am. I don't think I would like it on a regular basis, tho.
