Just wondering what funny things you have seen on labels in the walk-in, or anywhere else in your kitchen. The other day i was going through the walk-in trying to find some bleu cheese, and was having a hard time, until i noticed the container labeled "Bloochies" and found what i was looking for.

nope  no funny labels...did have a guy that was starting as a prep that had no idea what he was doing. I sent him into the walk-in for some parsnips he came back saying we didn't have any...i said  there is a new 50lb bag of them in there, right next to the carrots. He said "oh, you mean the white carrots? I was looking for the white beet things."/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif

I have seen many, my favorite was the rhubarb.  Once it was labeled "Red Celery", which is at least descriptive, but after my chef tried to explain the name, it later was labeled "RuPaul".

We once had a salesman rename FUdge CaKe at the registers which also renamed it on the customers ticket .... take the upper case letters and I think you will get the idea  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/crazy.gif

Ball syrup - balsamic syrup

(Anything that can be turned into a phallic reference while still being recognizably labeled, will be turned into a phallic reference.)

My favorite was seeing a box of urinal cakes with the following scrawled upon it: "Cherry-flavored breath mints."

We had a "clever" FOH supervisor change all the waitstaff's names on the squirrel pos terminals to match their "personalities". Most were just funny "binky, fluffoid, fancy boy", etc. but one unfortunate gal got a reference to her being, well, let's just say a "fun and very enthusiastic date".

FOH supervisor didn't quite think through that these names would print on customer checks. He got spanked.

My chef has some marinade labelled 'goo' in our walk-in. That's the name in her recipe book too...

We have 'butt squash' for our butternut squash.

One time one of our chefs used way too much salt in a mixture for meatballs and cooked them all without making a 'taster' first. For a while we had a container of meatballs labelled 'salty balls'.

I once got in trouble a long time ago for labelling some old smelly cheese "stinky Ass Cheese''. Our morning prep person mistook the label thinking it was Asiago and shredded up the entire wheel. Turns out that cheese WASN"T asiago and it WASN'T supposed to be shredded. wooops. haha. 

I have also seen A bucket of Mire Poix labeled "mirror pwah"

and a pan of airline breasts labeled "chicken boobs"

I've seen many other funny labels, but those are the first ones I could think of.

I actually have a recipe for "Mud" from my sister in law.  In my file I call it "mary's mud" and it's actually quite tasty and good on buns with a side salad

best thing i saw out front was when the GM decided to label all the cutlery boxes, forks, knifes, soup spoons, sundae spoons, etc. we changed forks to tuesday forks. didnt realise for weeks

in the kitchen always "semis" for sun-blushed tomatoes, "baby moo" for veal and "bawz" for meatballs, "sex mash" when you make good mash
