Dead Parrot Salad

I've been a Monty Python fan for as long as I can remember. I probably watched as much Monty Python as Sesame Street growing up and one of my favorite sketches has always been The Dead Parrot.

When I first decided to start "geeking" my own lunches I knew that I would have to do a dead parrot in a box ... and here he is:
He's quite the vision, isn't he? A lovely parrot colored with natural colors on colby cheese resting atop a salad. "Ex-Parrot" is cut out of canadian bacon and is also on colby. I melted the strips of colby slightly in order to have the bacon secure itself. The salad is packed in a Fit & Fresh Lunch Pod.  Maybe it'll help the parrot feel better ;)

Not familiar with the sketch? Well, here that is, too:


  1. I don't think it's wise to eat expired food :P

  2. I love Monty Python too! I would eat an ex-parrot any day :)

  3. OMG as a fan of Monty Python and bentos I totally, absolutely love your Dead Parrot. I laughed so hard XDD
