    To be a successful movie, though, there might have to be some bare things that rhyme with…..

    Ziti is just big macaroni.


    So you could easily substitute ziti into this (which has the added advantage of 3/4 ’s of a pound of bacon.

    SKILLET BACON, MACARONI AND CHEESE

    3/4 pound bacon, diced (Told you!)
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 quart milk (whole)
    2 teaspoons celery salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
    2 cups (8 ounces) elbow macaroni
    1 cup grated Swiss cheese
    1/2 cup pimientos

    In large skillet cook bacon and onion over low heat 15 minutes. (No more than 1/3 of your dial.)
    Drain off drippings.
    Add next 4 ingredients.
    Heat to boiling point.
    Gradually add macaroni so that milk continues to boil.
    Simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes, stirring often.
    Add cheese and pimiento; stir until cheese melts.
    Makes 4 to 6 servings.

    Old Dog…. sorry, but “ziti” doesn’t rhyme with “pity” (or “bitty.”)


    It more or less rhymes with “meaty” or “Sweetie,” maybe a bit crisper on the “t” sound.


    Beyond that….
    Varnes, is that what you meant,
    cos I don’t really understand your comment …


    …or for that matter, why Word War Ziti might be more of a joke than Word War Rotini or World War Orzo.


    Once again, if there’s some cultural reference, it went right pasta me.

    OK, I was wondering what “it” Ryan was referring to,
    so I Googled “World War Z” and discovered that it’s a 2006 book and a new film.


    So…. for anybody else who didn’t know….

    there you go.


    Presumably that’s why it’s not World War Taglierini or World War Orecchiette.


    Now I get it.

    This one is very good. Intelligent, world spanning and has some harrowing scenes. From the USA to S. Korea to Israel to Wales to Nova Scotia. Scary over gore filled.

    Varnes… . I…um….
    well…. I only thought of two words in that category…


    Neither rhymes with “ziti” at all….

    In fact, er….
    one rhymes with “decks” and the other with….
    hmmm…. not easy….
    OK, it almost rhymes with “consternation.”
