The Lean Cuisini


Moe: Okay, now let’s say I put a lean cuisine in a blender and I pour some beer on it. What do you call that?
Sideshow Mel: A lean cuisini?
Moe: Wrong.

The Simpsons | Season 16 - Episode 10

Lean Cuisine is considered a “healthy” frozen dinner and is targeted toward women. It’s essentially the opposite of Hungry Man, whose slogan “eat like a man” is actually pretty close to this blogs slogan. I think the major difference between eating like a duck and eating like a man (besides the obvious variance in chewing styles) is that eating like man involves a lot of meat and potatoes. While ducks apparently eat food blended with beer and drink the Lean Cuisini. Or at least this duck does.


  • Lean Cuisine (any variety will do)
  • Beer (any brand will do)


Put lean cuisine in a blender and pour some beer on it.


Liquefy until the mixture is as smooth as possible. Serve immediately.


I realized too late that I served the Lean Cuisini in a tumbler glass when it really should have gone into a martini glass – so don’t bother pointing that out. Was I going to make this monstrosity again? Not a chance in hell. What does a Lean Cuisini taste like? Like blended up food chunks with beer mixed in – a thoroughly unpleasant experience that ranks right up there with the Clove Tom Collins Pie. Do not make this.

That legitimately looks like barf.


It legit tasted like it too. Basically imagine after a night of drinking beer you decide to make a frozen dinner and, well, you know the rest.


I’ll be cooking my Lean Cuisine in your kiln tonight!


I bet that homemade Pepto Bimsol would taste even worse than that and the Tom Collins Pie


I wouldn’t even begin to know how to make that!


so then put it under “I’m not making that” because I imagine that it would cause Nausea, Heartburn, Indigestion, upset stomach, and diarrhea


Good call. I will add it to my “I’m not making that” list.


When did he make homemade Pepto-Bismol?

I know he made homemade prozac and said it needed more ice cream.


A quick google search for Homer and Pepto-Bismol doesn’t get much. The only instance I could think of was when it spilled on the bathroom floor and he thought it was “baby blood”.

There was homemade Pepsi, of course, which you actually already did. If you are going to take any drugs from The Simpsons, I recommend Focusyn (even if your testicles will no longer fit in your underwear).


I know it doesn’t fit into the context of the discussion, but I would just like to add that more testicles means more iron.


well it was something from the early seasons like sometime between 2-6


That was homemade Prozac from the episode “Homer Badman”. In your defense, it was pink.


you’re right it was homemade Prozac, not Pepto. It was pink though. It’s from “Homer Bad Man” (just rewatched it)


That’s exactly what I was thinking. I basically just need to mix strawberry ice cream with alcohol and…I’m not sure what else. Ice cream and alcohol always makes me feel better.
