Okay, so I've never ordered it. I have no interest. Because of the "surf" part, mostly. I just don't like seafood or fish, and I think the "surf" refers to either shrimp or lobster, right? I'm just not that interested.
Regardless, the term "Surf n Turf" has always really annoyed me. I just think they could have done better than that. I mean I get that "surf" has to do with water, and shrimp or lobster or whatever comes from the sea, and yes, that is where you surf. Okay, fine. It's far-fetched, but alright. Then we have "turf." Turf? Like land? Because steak comes from cows and they live on the land? Or live off the land, I guess. I just think there has to be something better, you know?
After some extensive research, i.e. looking it up on Wikipedia , I found a somewhat satisfying answer of "Reef n Beef," which is what they call it in Australia. That's pretty damn good, if you ask me.
I keep thinking to myself, though, maybe I can do better! Maybe I can coin that new phrase everybody has been searching for! But, frankly, I'm not doing very well so far. Here's all I've come up with:
*Fish n Dish
*Swims n Tims (I don't know, the cow could be named Tim)
*Sleet n Meat (Sleet is a type of rain, which has to do with water)
*Shrimp n Gimp
*Shrimp n Pimp
*Shrimp n Wimp (These are all just pretty funny to me)
*Fins n Grins (ever seen a cow smile? Yeah, neither have I)
Genia came up with a couple of her own, but I think forgot about the whole rhyming thing:
*Water n Land
*Prairie n Ocean
*Seafood n Steak
I don't know. You got any?
