Buttercups - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Buttercups

    Towards the end of the golf course, Dave hit his ball into
    the woods and found it in a patch of pretty yellow
    buttercups. Trying to get his ball back in play, he ended up
    thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch.
    All of a sudden, POOF! In a flash and puff of smoke, a
    little old woman appeared. She said, 'I'm Mother
    Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those
    buttercups? Just for doing what you have done, you won't
    have any butter for your popcorn for the rest of your life:
    better still, you won't have any butter for your toast
    for the rest of your life. As a matter of fact, you'll
    never have any butter for anything the rest of your
    life!' Then POOF! She was gone!

    After Dave recovered from the shock, he hollered for his
    friend, 'Fred, where are you?'Fred yells back 'I'm over here in the pussy willows.'
    Dave shouts back, 'DON'T SWING, Fred FOR THE LOVE

      The Salesman

      A young guy from Wisconsin moves to Florida
      and goes to a big everything-under-one-roof department store looking
      for a job.

      The Manager says, 'Do
      you have any sales experience?'

      The kid says
      'Yeah. I was a salesman back in Wisconsin .'

      Well, the boss liked the
      kid and gave him the job. 'You start tomorrow. I'll come down after
      we close and see how you did.'

      His first day on the job
      was rough, but he got through it.

      After the store was
      locked up, the boss came down. 'How many customers bought something
      from you today?'

      The kid says, 'One.'

      The boss says, 'Just
      one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day. How much was
      the sale for?'

      The kid
      says, '$101,237.65.'

      The boss
      says, '$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?'

      The kid says, 'First, I
      sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fishhook. Then
      I sold him a larger fishhook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I
      asked him where he was going fishing, and he said down the coast, so I told
      him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department, and I sold him
      a twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn't think his Honda
      Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department
      and sold him that 4x4 Expedition.'

      The boss said 'A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?'

      The kid said 'No, the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife, and I said, 'Dude,
      your weekend's shot, you should go fishing.'
