Hey! Close Your Eyes

Spaniards who returned from travels to Mexico and Peru introduced the tomato to Italy in the 16th Century. Originally thought to be a very poisonous fruit, we’re not sure who they got to try the first bite… possibly an adventurous Rococo ancestor!


Say MOOOF! Please?

Mozzarella Cheese was originally made from the milk of the Indian Water Buffalo in the 7th Century. It was brought to Italy in the 18th Century.

Dear Rocky,
I have a question which has plagued mankind for years….
simply put…..Rocky, what is life.

Rocky: “Duh….a magazine. Oh and by da’ way…ya can’t say
mankind anymore…it ain’t politically correct. Y’ gotta say person
kind….you know like chairperson…or uh, Dustin Hoffperson…or
when you go to get your nails done you get a person-a-cure…
..so dere’” Rocky.

Dear Rocky,
How do you stop an angry bull from charging?

Rocky: “Take away his credit cards…and quickly too!”


Dear Rocky,
Can you tell me what sport vampires like to play?

Rocky: “Bat mitton”…..(ahem)


Dear Rocky,
It seems like you’re always blowing away the competition.
Why just last week, two more of your competitors closed
their doors. Any comments, Mr. Rococo?

Rocky: “Well, as my old friend Clarence Darrow once said:
“'I never killed anyone before, but I’ve had a great deal of
pleasure from time to time reading the obituaries'”.

You’re a poet….a cook…..a culinary genius! Please
Rocky, what IS the secret to your pizza?


Rocky: Ya start out with dough and I don’t mean money,
Ya pick tomatoes that grow in the sun, where it’s sunny,
Ya put spice in yer sauce and ya cook it for days,
Ya buy the best mozzarella and let me tell ya it pays,
And when da’ pizza’s done, I think it’s kinda nice,
You can buy a whole pie or just a slice!
