“Fried Green Tomatoes”

Oh you will love this title and it came from none other than director Peter Weir, “The Cars That Ate Paris” (1974) - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071282/... - First, tomatoes and now cars? That city doesn’t get a break. Oh wait! It is Paris, Australia, and not Paris, France, this time. Whew! That’s a relief to Frenchmen.

Let me guess... a car is eating his part of Paris, Australia near somewhere called Ajieb Siyeb’s place.
As for my suggestion”Fried Green Tomatoes” is “Damn, these people in Alabama will fry anything! Especially at “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-stop Cafe” (the title of the book the film is taken from. It is set in Whistlestop, Alabama). Fried Banana sandwiches (Elvis’ favorite), Fried Chicken (Col. Sanders’), and now Fried Green Tomatoes. Where will it end? I guess it isn’t southern home country cooking unless it is fried, barbecued, pulled porked, or spiced up to flaming hot in some away.” I know it is long. Just use the funniest part of it. Besides, how do you fry a green tomato anyway? And why would you want to do that?

Before you do it, I’ll beat you to the punch and spoil your fun. The Whistlestop cafe is really “The Irondale Cafe” located here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Iro...
whistlestop alabama
And ignore the “Closed” sign on the websites. It is open from 11 am to 2:30 pm Sunday through Friday, closed on Saturdays.

Ed don’t forget
- deep fried funnel cake
- deep fried cheesecake pasties
And
- Deep Fried oriel cookies.
Another joke to consider - “French chefs are demanding to know the recipe so that they can get revenge on the killer tomatoes that ate France in an earlier title mentioned in this list.” What a patriotic group!

This takes another dimension when you realize that the French word for a bad movie is "turnip".
