Killer Tofu Sandwich

Tofu, avocado, hummus, spelt bread

Remember Doug? Of course you do.

You know?

And so you might also remember The Beets, Doug’s favorite band from Liverpool that is said to be a compilation of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Kinks.

The Beets

And so THEN you might also remember their incredible song: Killer Tofu

Fast food feels fuzzy
Cause it tastes like stuff that’s scuzzy
I used to feel like such a nerd
I refused to eat that strange bean curd
I didn’t eat it -ow- but it ate you
Aw-wee-oo
Killer Tofu
Eee-aw-wee Iee-oo
Killer Tofu

I eat my sugared cereal
But it makes my teeth bacterial
Ee-awee-oo EE-awee
If you’re feeling kind of cruddy
Just stick beside your buddy
And don’t eat too much fried food -ow-
Aw-wee-oo
Killer Tofu
Eee-aw-wee Iee-oo
Killer Tofu

This is perhaps the greatest song ever written by a fictional cartoon band, and it sums up my lunch pretty nicely.

I had leftover honey soy glazed tofu, hummus and mashed avocado on toasted spelt bread.

Oooo-wee-ooo KILLER TOFUUU

And now I present to you… the actual song. Listen here: Killer Tofu.

  1. whoa. i think i would pass out if i heard you say “And so you might also remember The Beets, Doug’s favorite band from Liverpool that is said to be a compilation of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Kinks” out loud.

  2. Haha this is great, I have definitely busted out with that song over the last few years, along with (Doug’s and Skeeter’s?) “Bangin’ on a trashcan…” those were the days.

  3. So I’m a little late on commenting, but I just wanted to mention how impressed I was with your “on a dollar a day” posts! I’ve been wanting to do something similar– live on a food stamp budget for a month– but haven’t yet done it! It’s hard, for sure!
    Thanks for being inspirational, and addressing an issue that really matters. I volunteer in a free health clinic and there are so many diabetic, obese, or otherwise ill patients that would benefit from good nutrition, but they have no idea how to eat healthily on $200 a month!

    • yes! $200 is such a challenge… suffocating even. and even if i were able to pull it off, there are too many variables in my comfortable life that would make it easier–my support system, my ability to handle other payments like rent, my access to transportation, my education, etc. it’s such a complex issue.

      good for you for volunteering. if you start experimenting with healthy eating on a budget, i’m sure you’ll have lots of information to share at the clinic…

  4. “This is perhaps the greatest song ever written by a fictional cartoon band”

    Did Stew take issue with this, being a Gorillaz fan and all?

    I’m personally partial to “Sugar and Spice” by The Archies.
