Hello, and good afternoon my Bearded Soldiers, it’s me your Bearded Captain leader of all beards and flag-bearer of all beards on digital and digital broadcasting media.
I am that Beard who tries to make people laugh and I am that Beard who tries to make people smile. Brothers, I pray you’re well and looking after yourselves, as well as your Beards! My Soldiers, we need to talk about an important issue in the life of The Bearded Life.
The issue of rice Brothers, the issue of rice. Rice is of course a meal that can be eaten with chicken, lentils and other curries.
As you know rice comes in two colours … white and brown. For the smarty pants amongst you, I did momentarily forget the yellow rice, the sweet rice – but take it from me as terms of rice goes it’s nothing to write home about.
There might be some of you, who will get up in arms, but come on brown rice, chicken spinach curry, salad and a nice tall glass of Pepsi it’s the shout!
Whether you have that or have white rice which tends to go well with chicken tikka or chickpeas, one thing with both colours of rice, you can tell when it’s not up to scratch.
When your Captain goes to weddings, he is adamant that he will not have rice, as that’s like chips, which have a standard taste in takeaways, what’s the point of wasting or filling your stomach space for that!?
As much as I think my statement does have some virtue (all rice tends to be the same), Brothers bear in mind there are times when it’s not. Asian’s being Asian’ we eat the same thing for a week. We put it in the fridge and reheat it.
So when you do that, have you noticed it’s in big bits clumped together? The beauty of rice is that you taste it grain by grain. When the rice is clumpy like this, you can’t taste that delicious grain upon grain.
There’s a name for that kind of rice, when it’s clumpy and in large pieces after it gets reheated and it’s called Pizza Rice! Why such a name I hear you ask? Well, brothers, you take a piece of rice off your plate and it’s not too dissimilar from taking a slice of pizza off your plate.
So there you have the Pizza Slice story, the name has stuck as even when The Bearded General sees it on his plate he says “Ayyaz Pizza rice”!
It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
