Before there was Surf ‘n’ Turf

22751-bigthumbnail

Scooter and I stuffed our craws with a delicious medley of lobster ‘n’ sirloin last night, which got me thinking. Surf ‘n’ Turf is a catchy menu item and all, but what else did that enterprising restauranteur cross off the list before he coined the phrase (on a napkin, no doubt) back in 1967? Why didn’t he go with:

hay ‘n’ bay
cowbell ‘n’ shell
straw ‘n’ claw
pet ‘n’ wet
bovine ‘n’ brine
calf ‘n’ bath
steak ‘n’ lake
Bessie ‘n’ the sea
cultivated land ‘n’ sand
oxtail ‘n’ shrimp cocktail
rumination ‘n’ crustacean
beef ‘n’ reef
grill ‘n’ krill
cud ‘n’ mud

I’m just saying.
