Bad Word Pairs #027

“Bean Curd”

Someone on the internet asked the question: “What is bean curd?” Which I thought was a good question indeed.

The answer, wisegeek.com informs us: “To make bean curd, a cook curdles soy milk and presses the resulting soybean curds into molds to firm up.”

Mmm. Tasty. Bean curd is more commonly known simply as tofu. Those who know me, know my issues with tofu, and tofurkey, and soy milk, and rice dream, and vegetarian marketing in general. Bean curd, on the other hand, simply suffers from sounding as gross as its preparation.

Yuk.

    I maintain you have not had properly prepared tofu. It tastes like whatever its paired with, after all. I can think of worse combos. Anything paired with “moist” comes to mind.
