Well, is it funny when you hear that it was supposed to be Jasmine Rice?


Westley said...

YES, that's funny. I thought it was a newspaper headline, but I couldn't figure out which word was the verb. The closest I could come up with was that 'rice' was a new kind of dance that men who played jazz were doing. :-)

Actually Jazz Man is a variety of jasmine rice grown, milled, bagged and being sold as "Jazzmen Rice."

Lorin said...

Oops. Add this: grown, milled and bagged in Louisiana...
