Milkshakes in PF


#1

does anyone know what the difference between the martin and lewis and the amos and andy milkshakes?

[quote]Martin and Lewis were an American comedy duo, comprised of singer Dean Martin (as the “straight man”) and comedian Jerry Lewis (as his stooge).[/quote] and [quote]Amos & Andy (also rendered as Amos ‘n’ Andy) was a situation comedy popular in the United States from the 1920s through the 1950s.[/quote]

Hmm… Well It would seem that it was just a reference, not really a milkshake itself.

I always thought that Martin and Lewis and Amos and Andy were clever ways of saying Vanilla and Chocolate. I knew who they were.

Yeah, I know that i’ve been to a few joints where a vanilla milkshake was called a ‘Martain and Lewis’; and I just assumed that an ‘Amos and Andy’ was another flavour (never heard of them before)… so roulette’s logic certainly seems the most plausable explaination…damn, now I feel like a shake :frowning:

While Mia and Vincent are walking trough Jack rabbit slims I saw a Strawberry milkshake.


#6

yeah the amos and andy is a chocolate and vanilla milkshake because amos and andy r actually a white and black acting duo. and the martin and lewis is a strawberry and another flavor of milkshake that i dont know at this time and moment


#7

I want a milkshake now too :frowning: Not just a regular one, i gotta know what a $5 shake tastes like.


#8

thats a good one

The waiter is asking Mia to choose between black and white. She picks white. QT did a similar thing in Jackie Brown, where Robert Forrester’s character drinks his coffee black.

According to the DVD, Amos ‘n’ Andy were black comedians/actors; so that’s a chocolate milkshake whereas Martin ‘n’ Lewis are white comedians/actors; so that’s a vanilla milkshake. It is a fancy way of asking whether you would like a vanilla or chocolate milkshake.

really i did not even know that

I am just going by what my DVD trivia commentary said so you probably want to check it out lol. It makes sense though black-chocolate, white-vanilla so maybe I’m right for a change!

thats true to , because there is a movie named Amos and Andrew. that starred Sam L. Jackson and Nicholas Cage thats where i got the impression that the milkshake was the swirl of chocolate and vanilla.
