I think a favorite food would be any thick creamy chowder... something that sticks to your ribs.

theblacksmiley :8(I) said...

black truffle squid ink risotto would be the best bet

Tatman said...

I gotta think that a skull would like some ham on the bone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly4c6tu5o8Q&feature=related

Head cheese.

Ragnar said...

I'm gonna go with a "Deadguy Ale" from Rogue brewery. Hard to resist something that's got your picture on the bottle.

Pinky Diablo said...

a lagniappe of a tiny square of your own liver. wrapped in the gooseflesh skin of your dead grandmother's upper arm. grilled. served on a tiny pool of suicidal blood with a spear of fresh rosemary stabbed in the top.

strugglingwriter said...

A skull's favorite food is brains. Because really, isn't that everybody's favorite food?

Andrea (Off Her Cork) said...

That mug is awesome!

A skull's favorite food would be meat. Meat on a stick would be grand but you see the difficulty in handling the stick. So just meat that is lovely and brown on the outside. Second choice would be a nice marrow bone slow cooked with red sauce.

Zook said...

Beer.

A skeleton walks into a bar and orders a beer. And a mop.

Zook said...

And that IS an awesome mug. Been following Chris' work on etsy for a couple of years now. Very talented man.

pseedie said...

something filling. that sticks to his ribs. (hahahahahha) actually i like the head cheese response.....

FetishGhost said...

Steel cut blood oatmeal... it's sure to put meat on your bones.

LunaChick said...

BBQ Ribs

Apryl DeLancey said...

It would have to be sushi smothered in sriracha sauce without a doubt!

Erick said...

My favorite drink would be a "Red Draw". Southern drink of beer mixed with V8. Looks like carbonated blood.

Aman said...

well, clearly, according to the skeleton in The Last Unicorn, wine. He chugged that shit like nobody's business.

Adam said...

That skull would be loving some nice cheesy beery rarebit, for dipping of broccoli and sourdough. adam.burninator@gmail.com

Lobster :)

Qweequeg said...

Most of the skulls I know really love Marshmallow Peep Bunnies, but you have to leave them out for a couple of days or they are too smooshy. A favorite skull joke is to bite off the ears and go around holding it up and saying "What? What?" You know cuz the Bunnies can't hear without their ears. I think the skulls get some kind of weird self-deprecating delight out of it, not having any ears themselves. Maybe it's the irony of it, I don't know... I don't always get skull humor.

Leslie said...

I think a skull's favorite beverage would be a thick creamy soy milkshake, preferably chocolate. He could sip it through a straw, so the no-arms thing wouldn't be a hassle, and he would like that it was vegan because he's seen too much meat eaten off his own poor bones!!!

Iron Maiden said...

A giant T-bone steak and a frosty brew poured directly into his cranial cavity.

Eric said...

A skull's favorite would be jolly rogers (jolly ranchers).

Jenny Garza said...

Corned beef and Cabbage for sure... skull doesn't have to worry about farts! lol

Jess said...

apples of course

shawnzerker said...

All of my skulls like Brains. I know this because when you crack a skull open its full of Brains!!! You can ask anyone. Its a fact!!
Now to chose what tastey drink I will sip from my new skull mug first.... (:=

Ghost Toasties!

Daryle Dickens said...

Any of the monster cereals, Boo Berry, Count Chocula, or Frankenberry.

josie said...

FlamingAtheist said...

Milk - does a body (and skull) good.

denise said...

a smoothie of maggots, blood and bat wings would be skellyliscious!

(pretty awesome mug being offered.)

cappy sue creations said...

hmm favorite food of a skull I am thinking fried squash. hmm maybe it is because that is my favorite to. The drink would have to be some thing like mad dog to warm him up a little. oh my email is crazecapy@att.net

BonBon said...

Rack of lamb!

Karen's Monsters said...

Love the skull mug!

I've always found skulls are partial to candy corn. But it would be just my luck to find the one skull with a totally different palate. And I'd be out running for a fresh green salad or some other nonsense.

Azurafae said...

Blood pudding and a Bloody Mary.

Brew said...

Apple pie; without a doubt.

laura said...

a skull's favorite food HAS to be chainsaw lubricant. helps keep you smiling, but unlike vaseline it isn't chunky or too thick, and you never have to worry about drying out in the summer. morbid but... that little dude looks like he's pretty good friends with leatherface. jussayin'.

Bull.l said...

considering you are what you eat, I gotta go with bone soup. As for the beverage, it would have to be milk for calcium, warm, but not hot. hot milk would be a bad choice!

LizardKingLaura said...

I believe skulls would enjoy a corndog on a stick because it's vaguely familiar (& Delicious!).

Mama Kia said...

there is a specific wine - http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3895939&l=43442b1105&id=608971365 that Cris' skull would drink : )

as for vittles -- http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3895957&l=101fced0aa&id=608971365

I mean, seriously, what else could possibly do for this meal?

DancesWithPitBulls said...

I want it I want it I want it I want it

sadiemoonchild said...

Well lets see... how about some fromage de tete to start, (french head cheese) a nice soup, cream of sum yun guy, some haggas and sweetbreads fried crisp for sandwiches, an extra spicy bloody mary and some toasted nuts, on ice cream of course!

nitebyrd said...

Guinness. Everybody and even those without a body feel good drinking Guinness.

Love the mug!

@Ragnar - Gotta love Dead Guy, too!

Panda2778 said...

I think that a mice drink might be dragon's blood... something super sweet and sugary, and red (of course)!

Hiro C. said...

Osso bucco

Melissa said...

Pumpkin Pie. The dollop of whipped cream gets them every time.

tattooedpudge said...

I think a skull would like to drink beer, beer, and more beer. But it always goes straight their head.

mn hotdish said...

spendy aged tequila.

Kimily said...

I'm thinking sushi. Spicy Tuna and a Dragon Roll. One must use the bone carved chopsticks...of course.

colin said...

skulls don't have to worry about their weight, so they're definitely down with Luther burgers.

President Wishnack said...

i wanna say it'd have to be chewing gum till he got a stomach.

Oblivio Accebit said...

Tongue !

Artsygal said...

I believe that a skull would really love to eat owl brains so that he could remain old and wise.......obviously

kerosene said...

candy & coffee ☠

Mr. Blanchard said...

peanut m&m's

Lady said...

I think a skull's favorite drink would be milk. After all, he needs to keep his bones nice and healthy! (of course, when he feels saucy it'd be a White Russian instead)

Joe said...

If I were a skull, I would prefer Prosciutto Di Parma because of how beautifully it would drape over the features of my face and highlight the characteristics of my personality. At gatherings, party goers can dine off of the flesh of my face until the bony structure is revealed, and my true nature can be exposed in full view.

weiners

Maverick0n said...

biscuits with black pepper gravy ...most def. simple yet tasty, and it seems fitting.
