How the series of literal food drawings started...
Another image from series of literal illustrations of food names.
Among the backwoodsmen of America there was a superstition that bears breed only once every seven years, and when they did this caused such a disturbance in the atmosphere that any cattle in the district which were about to calve would lose their young.

Transmundane Tuesday : a beetle, wearing a sweater, dancing. A prompt from Carson Ellis.
Omens : Crocodile.
The Indians believe that crocodiles make a moaning and sighing noise like a human being in distress to attract their victims. They also have a curious superstition that the creatures shed their famous "tears" over a victim's head after they have devoured the body - and then polish off the head to complete the meal!

"Speak roughly to your little boy,
And beat him when he sneezes;
He only does it to annoy,
Because he knows it teases." CHORUS (in which the cook and the baby joined): " Wow! wow! wow!" - Alice in wonderland by Lewis Carroll
More literal illustrations of food names. Drunken shrimp.
French toast has many many names. Pain perdu (lost bread) is one of my favorites.
