Guest column: How my uncle sent McCartney a meat message (Served meat to road crew at show)
The Province (Canada) ^ | Friday, August 23, 2013

Posted on 08/25/2013 6:25:10 PM PDT by kristinn

My Uncle Duncan was among those who drove down to Regina for the Paul McCartney concert. When I saw him three days later, he still was jacked up.

“I haven’t had such a good time since my Scottish distillery tour in 1973,” he pronounced. This was high praise indeed. The last leg of Uncle Duncan’s 1973 Scottish distillery tour was a police escort to the airport.

The funny thing now was that Uncle Duncan, as far as I knew, is not a big McCartney fan. He never has paid much attention to popular music, except to ask that it be turned down or, better still, off.

What had possessed him, then, to go to the McCartney concert? “It was to fight injustice,” he said.

It all started with a disturbing news report. Aside from being a celebrated entertainer, McCartney is a militant vegetarian and animal rights crusader. So devoted is he that his roadies on this tour reportedly are served exclusively vegetarian fare.

Uncle Duncan, when he learned of this, was aghast.

“McCartney can eat as much tofu as he likes,” said Uncle Duncan, “but he shouldn’t force it down other people’s throats.”

He could not let this stand. After a trip to the grocery store for supplies, Uncle Duncan made 12 loaves of baloney sandwiches, with mustard, lettuce and, not one, but two slices of Schneider’s baloney in every sandwich. These he packed into a large cardboard box and transported to Mosaic Stadium in Regina.

He got into the stadium simply by claiming he was here with the sandwiches.

The attendant security guards were only too happy to partake. Once inside, Uncle Duncan distributed baloney sandwiches backstage to everyone wearing a tour T-shirt.

“They heard free baloney sandwiches and they swarmed me,” Uncle Duncan recalled.

Not much on baloney, but frying it is an upgrade.

Outstanding and brilliant. Freedom personified. And since he didn’t sell the sandwiches and their own security let him in— bravo. Dear Paul will probably hassle his crew though— might be on contract in which case, he might have cancelled through the promoter, but didn’t find out til later.

Annoying militant vegetarians. Quote” I didn’t claw my way to the top of the food pyramid to be a vegetarian”.

Personally I’ve always wished Mark Chapman had been jealous of McCartney instead of Lennon, but that’s just me.

Personally, I wished he'd used some of those bullets on Yoko. She was standing right next to him, after all.

Honestly... the women is a disaster. Rich kid daughter of a jap banker. A hanger on, a doper and zero... pure zero talent of any kind. But especially NOT a singer— fingernails on a blackboard.

And Lennon supported Reagan— many lefties don’t know that.

I have long had a suspicion that Yoko was in on it with Chapman.....Was John on the verge of leaving her? Was John having a change of heart, politically at the time? Who stood to gain the most from his death?

I don’t have any proof, but the fact Chapman spared her, does raise some of those questions.

In the meantime, Sir Paul remains in critical condition at the Regina Municipal Hospital. Doctors’ prognoses are cautious.

One season of Top Chef had the contestants cooking Thanksgiving dinner for some rock group (name forgotten).

I was surprised at the picayune BS in the contract riders, including taking care of the vegans in the entourage.

"Baloney is made with meat? I’m stuned!"

Growing up my mother insisted on buying only "all beef" Bologna because she was convinced it was waay better than regular bologna.

My grandfather explained to her the only difference between "all beef" bologna and regular bologna was that when making the "all beef" type they only used the floor scrapings from the cattle butchering room instead of all of the other various butchering room floor scrapings.

That Hickory Farms Beef Stick is usually better after a little tenure on a frying pan or over a camp fire too.

I don’t know that much about vegetarianism. I wonder, do some of them still get obese? They always seem nice and trim, but maybe there are exceptions.

If that’s the stuff I’m thinking of, you’re not kidding. It’s almost inedible as sold. Never tried frying it though.

He didn't? I always assumed when I heard her music later (motto: "Who stepped on the cat?") that she'd taken a couple rounds to the voicebox and kind of semi-recovered.

I always figured that Lennon was stoned all the time, and thus Yoko looked good to him. Can’t imagine him, or anyone, being straight/sober and finding a damned thing about her attractive.

I’d say there was a simpler reason: Chapman didn’t have silver bullets, garlic, or a stake. . . . (evil grin)

The correct way to eat Baloney is to fry it until it is slightly toasted brown, then put it on a soft roll with chopped onion and mustard

(most people make the mistake of frying the onions with the baloney, which is wrong. You want fresh raw vidalia copped finely)

I can tell everyone the correct way to make chili too, if anyone wants to know

(its with ground turkey and beer)

ok here is my ground turkey chili recipe, but this is just between me and you, ok?


Put one or two pounds of ground turkey in a large skillet to fry, in a bunch of olive oil (I use extra virgin)

While this is cooking (completly!, not just browned, like ground beef) do the following:

Toss two big cans of whole tomatoes (Redpack brand is my favorite) in a large pot. crush them with a spatula.

Add two bottles of a good beer (Sam Adams makes the best chili, I think)

Add about a half cup of sugar, some chili powder (3 tablespoons- I like McCormick brand)

Add a few bay leafs

Put on medium-low to simmer

When the turkey is fully cooked and browned (adds flavor if you toast it good) add it to the pot. You may have to drain some liquid once or twice.

Chop one large vidalia or sweet onion and two green peppers and stir-fry them in the same sillet (it will absorb meat flavor) in more olive oil

Toss them into the pot when still just a bit raw and crunchy

Sometimes I cube a large zuchini and fast-stir-fry that until browned and add that (don’t overcook)

When it is boiling turn off the heat and toss in a can of either black beans, or white (Great Northern) beans (I personally do not like kidney beans)

You can eat immediately but the flavor is even better the next day (after the meat absorbes all the favors)

The sugar and beer are the main things you can adjust for flavor add more or less, as you like

I can make up a batch of this in 15 minutes if you chop the veggies while the meat is frying

To: Revolting cat!

When he toured in the 1980s (or maybe it was the 1990s), his concert program (a free magazine given out to all attendeesm they did it in both decades), SyruP Aul said that his favorite meal was STILL steak and eggs and that he’d sneak out now and then and get him one.

Who knows if Paulie’s still sneaking around now that his meat hating wife isn’t around to hen peck him. If Paul shacking up with Morrisseeyy these days or something??
