Britney Spears party menu
May 14, 2005 7:03 AM   Subscribe

So I'm planning a little party to commemorate the first episode of the Britney Spears-Kevin Federline home movie-rama on UPN, and I need to come up with a truly inspired menu.

So far, I know that Cheetos are a must, as are milkshakes like the ones her family threw at paparazzi, and who can forget the Red Bull? Unfortunately, I can't seem to remember any more of Mrs. Spearserline's favorites. Help me!

***Yes, I realize this is just the kind of embarrassing question the anonymous feature was built for, but I'm feeling brave.

Boiled peanuts are a big favorite in her home region.

Well, Pepsi, of course, because she did that commercial. And remember that Britney is a southern girl, so I imagine any number of southern foods would be appropriate.

Look up old articles about her wedding. She served chicken fingers and I can't remember what else. Maybe mini-burgers or mini ribs or something like that.

How about Asparagus Spears?

My favorite white trash recipe from back home is this: Take a bag of peanuts (Tom's is best but go with what you have) and dump em in a CoCola bottle (RC is best here but like TPS said, Pepsi would be more appropriate). When the peanuts float to the top, you drink it all down and eat the peanuts fast. Mmmm. Plus you should all wear Mouseketeer ears while you watch it.

You are watching this with other people, right?

Plus you should all wear Mouseketeer ears while you watch it.

I think it should be bigger than that; everyone should be able to dress as Britney throughout the ages. Meaning they could look cute, or they could look skanky (They could dress as Kevin, too, but he'd just be skanky).

And please take pictures.

Tums for dessert. Not Britneyesque, but just saying.

Make sure nobody wears shoes when they use the bathroom either.

koolaid and fishsticks w/tartar sauce.

Cheese! (Don't know if Britney eats it, but I suspect that is what her show will be!)

I think I read somewhere that she's been having ice cream cravings.

Peanut butter on plastic spoons.

With apologies to Dr. Wu.

Cigarettes and cottage cheese, the two things Brit Brit tried and failed to hide from photographers.

I desperately want to believe you're pulling this out of your ass, yet in my heart, I know it's true. Damn you, DFT! *sob*

At any rate, I suggest an updated dress code--especially since the tablecloth-and-mukluks look is SO easy to do. And if you decide ta git all fancy-fied and "healthy" with yer grub, I guess some kind of beer can chicken would be acceptable, as long as you use Schlitz or something. Or better yet--check out the rider from her last tour. Captain Crunch, cinnamon Altoids and cool ranch Doritos for everyone!

I don't know if there are enough drugs on earth to justify watching this trainwreck, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to give it the old college try.

White Castle burgers and corn dogs.

Well Verv, I guess it's a good thing I didn't mention cornbread surprise....

Peanuts in Coke is really good -- don't knock it 'till you try it!

Vervain: The beer would need to be Dixie. I would suggest Abita but it might be a bit highbrow.

KFC!

Essentially crappy lightweight food...lots of sugar...

something sweet and nutritiously worthless just like Spears.

I have waited for hours but still no one has suggested what the columns call her - Pop Tart.
posted by Cranberry at 12:49 AM on May 15, 2005


Damn! How could I have forgotten the pop tarts?

Good call, Cranberry.
posted by Fuzzy Monster at 9:55 AM on May 15, 2005


I think you have to go with Coke, not Pepsi. She gets paid by Pepsi, but keeps getting caught drinking Coke. Also, filmgeek may have just answered the question in full - pretty much anything you can buy at 7-11 will work.
