Need funny physics foods!

  1. Dec 10, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    my department's having a cookoff and I am wondering if anyone has any cute names for a dish that are really physics-related. So far we have Tesla coiled marshmallows and thomson cookies... any ideas out there? It can be any type of dish, I just need a humorous physics name to match.

    Josephson sandwiches?
    But make sure it is only a tri-layer structure, otherwise it gets complicated :wink:

    haha, I am loving it. I also am considering bosonic brownies, quarkies (cookies) and n-body salad. Hehe, if only this is how homework usually was...

    Atomic plum pudding (now with 20% more neutrons!)

    Calabi-Yau Pretzels

    Newton Apples

    Kepler Onion Rings

    Tokamak Donuts (with hot cream filling of course, mmmmm)



    If you forgot to bring a dish, just tell your coworkers you made a Bose-Einstein Condensate but it destructively interfered with itself :(

    Make sure they are Sig Fig Newtons!

    And "Neutrinos" always sounded like a tiny after-dinner mint to me. (Or a breakfast cereal). They would be small, but you would need a hell of a lot of them. I mean barrels full of them.

    These ideas are hilarious! :biggrin: What a fun idea for a party/gathering!

    That reminds me of way back when I was a kid, just learning to read. We had the school lunch menu posted in the kitchen, so we'd know which days to pack a lunch and which days we wanted to buy lunch. My mom never seemed very inclined to answer me when I would ask what the "car rots" were on the menu. :biggrin: I think my mom must have believe in experiential learning or some such, that I had to figure it out on my own by eventually realizing that it was carrots that were served everytime that word appeared on the menu. :uhh: Maybe she didn't think I was seriously asking, since I really disliked cooked carrots as a kid, so calling them car rots might have been perfectly expected of me. :biggrin:

    :yuck: Eeew! The other kids thought I was weird enough for not liking tater tots. I can't imagine using them to make a casserole with tuna!

    I hate tater tots, always did. I love potatoes normally, but for some reason (likely cheap oil and other ingredients) tater tots have always seemed just gross to me. But yeah, it was some nasty stuff.
