Author Notes

You are cheap, poor and lazy. And you can afford one oyster just to live like the Donald for about 5 seconds. One taste is all you get. Now back to your double wide. I wrote up this recipe four years ago but it seems more relevant than ever. —pierino

What You'll Need
  • 1 Fresh kumamoto oyster (or substitute one belon flown in from Brittany)
  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar
  • 1 shallot chopped
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • Ground white pepper
  1. Shuck the oyster.
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients and serve with your cold oyster.
  3. Swallow oyster.
  4. Get your hair ironed and and your eyebrows threaded.

I have used both LOL and ROTFL and both are apropos here. "Poor Donald", if only others had the same sense of humor about his attempted bid for the presidency, maybe he could have still been the pace car driver at next Sunday's race! I will slurp one in your honor pierino!

I never, ever use the phrase/abbreviation/whatever-it-is LOL, but I'm going to make an exception. LOL!

I LOVE the name of the dish, what a great sense of humor you have! The recipe looks wonderful, and all the comments....gee can't disagree with any of them.
Pierino ya got a good point there. The man has funny hair, but he does know one thing, how to make $$$$.

You have reached a new height of hilarity with this recipe; you could of course kill anybody's appetite with that lead photo and image...maybe a whole other way to save money. I would love this....after I purged my memory of the trump half of the shell.

Well the theme is nickle and dime, right? Who does that better than four time bankrupt, richest man in the world, Trump? Okay, let's forget that he was born in Kamchatka---explains the hair.
