Boston prides itself on proclaiming the city to be the Universe’s Hub
but even with universities galore they can’t get it right about their grub:
Scrod is really cod.
What they pretentiously call a frappe everyone else calls a milkshake.
A tonic in a Boston accent in Austin is just sodah pop like Cocah Colah.
Jimmies are generously sprinkled on top of ice cream as chocolate sprinkles should be.
To call it Boston Cream Pie is a layered lie as it’s a custard filled chocolate frosted cake.
There’s no pig in a Stuffed Quahog as this hard-shelled clam would attest.
For goodness sake what’s corn doing in a Clam Bake?
It’s hard to find a submarine sandwich there but not a look alike taste alike grinder.
So if you ever go to Boston this verse about it’s quirky culinary names
Is an off the wall food finder reminder.
