The 'Party of No' Onion Ring

I was innocently sampling the wares at my local all-you-can-eat rib shack recently, and while dining on the healthy vegetable portion of my meal I came across this curious 'Party of No!' symbol that was lurking amongst the nutritious onion rings and French fries.

Despite my deeply undernourished and famished condition, I refused to eat the offending morsel for fear of upsetting the sensitive political balance of my delicate stomach (and I also wanted to save room for dessert, of course), and instead decided to bring the disagreeable tidbit home for closer inspection and further study.

I submit the following photographs that clearly illustrate the nuanced and discerning sensibilities of my extra-awesome cat, Captain Nemo. I am happy to say that his opinion on the subject of the mysterious 'o-ring of no' coincided with mine:

"Meowmm... What is this circular object of battered and fried onion goodness?"

"Bah! This is a foul 'Party of No' onion ringie thingie!"

As an aside, I would like to point out another interesting event that happened during the course of my light repast. Because of my numerous travels through time I am able to recall the days when restaurants would actually bring you a hot towel at the end of your pork rib dinner for you to clean your fingers, hands and pelt with.

I was surprised to find that at the end of this particular evening's meal that our server brought us hot, microwaved prepackaged moist towelettes, still in the package! It was quite a struggle to get the plastic packaging off of the moist towelettes with greasy paws, I must say...

opinion on the onion

Well at least it was the "Party of no onion rings" cause then there'd have been problems LOL. Well back to my pork rinds *crunch, crunch*

pretty sure that stands for "NO substantial nutritional value whatsoever"

Mmmmmm, onion rings.

Damn you, Dr. Z! Now I must excuse myself, I have a very important errand to run.

Onion rings, perhaps nature's perfect food.

Remember to try Onion Rings a la Canadienne - that's with poutine

Jang-chub Ozer: Ah, fried food. That's what makes America great! ;o)

Wide World of Dave: Ack! You heathen! Onion rings are served with cheeseburgers, and are thus are highly nutritious. :o(

Tengrain: Mmm... Save some for me! ;o)

Randal Graves: Yay! They are right up there with chocolate cake! ;o)

OKJimm: Yay! Thou art a true believer! ;o)

Jang-chub Ozer: Eek! That sounds horrible! Except the gravy part, perhaps... ;o)

ThoughtCriminal: Everything is better with bacon. It's the candy of meats! ;o)
