A couple of days ago, TV chef Nigella Lawson was demonstrating one of her new recipes for one of her new TV shows, when she discussed the procedure she used to warm her milk.
Yep, she called it the MEE-cro-wah-vay.
And Twitter went nuts.
Oh, sweet Lord, does Nigella Lawson not know what a microwave is? Is she just pronouncing it in such a way to sound haughty? Quel damage!
Okay, everybody, back up. Take a breath.
First off, let’s take a moment here. First off, Nigella Lawson was simply using a little bit of funny flare to describe the microwave as the mee-cro-wah-vay. It’s not the end of the world.
Secondly, you can’t tell me that you don’t know someone who refers to the big-box department store as “Tarjay” at least once in their life.
Also, have you SEEN Nigella Lawson? No, really, have you seen her with your own two eyes?
Trust me, Nigella Lawson could gaze at ice cream and it would turn into milk. Let’s face it. Who’s better looking in the kitchen than Nigella Lawson? Racheal Ray? Not even close. What about that Pioneer woman? Meh. Paula Deen? I’m not going there.
Still, Nigella Lawson continued on with the joke a wee bit, but you could tell she wanted to move on.
But you know what they say … nothing dies on the Internet.
Okay, that was fun. Now, as soon as I finish with this blog post, I’m heading to McDonald’s and getting an eggamuffin. Yeah, that’s what I called it. What are you going to do about it, send Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar out to cap me? 😀
