Comrade PhysioProf Readers’ Poll

April 2, 2009

If you were stranded on a desert island with an unlimited supply of only one alcoholic beverage and one food item, what would they be?

UPDATE: You get to have your alcoholic beverage and your food served at the appropriate temperatues and with ice cubes as necessary.

  1. k Says:

    Magic Hat Hocus Pocus beer and really good sour dough bread

  2. Enrique Says:

    It is really funny you posted this, because I was thinking about it this morning. They may not go well together, but Stone IPA and Cioppino.

  3. LostMarbles Says:

    Do we get a fridge or some guarantee that the alcohol will be at the correct temperature? ‘Cause warm vodka is a vile abomination.

    As for food, I could probably survive on a diet of banana nut bread.

  4. Eugenie Says:

    Rum and mac and cheese.

  5. Odyssey Says:

    Woodford Reserve (bourbon) and paella.

  6. ilyka Says:

    Vodka and cheese enchiladas. I mean, vodka for the beverage and cheese enchiladas for the food item, not vodka-and-cheese enchiladas, although . . . hmm!

  7. Twisty Says:

    Wine, where “wine” = wine that costs at least $20 a bot and is compatible with organic cheese tortellini with alfredo sauce, peas, and mushrooms, and a homegrown tomato and arugula salad, and a brownie with vanilla ice cream. That sounds like a lot of stuff, but it should count as one food item because fewer than 3 courses is barbaric.

    Or, if you insist, shrimp corndogs with blueberry mustard and Dom Perignon.

  8. Sciencewoman Says:

    motherfucking jameson of course.
    and black bean burritos.

  9. sandy Says:

    Pinot Noir and Hungarian goulash.

  10. Mad Hatter Says:

    Drink: Long Island iced tea
    Food: A noodle dish from my home country (although chocolate would be good, too)

    CPP, you gonna tell us your picks?

  11. A dirty vodka martini and a lemon tart.

  12. As a non-drinker, I reserve the right to substitute the alcohol beverage for a non-alcohol alternative …

    A Chocolate Elvis smoothie and Doritos (of course).

  13. Clipper City Brewing’s Lose Cannon

    Chicken Vindaloo curry with garlic naan

  14. If I could spell, that would read “Loose” Cannon, but I was dropped as a child.

  15. Complain-o-peeps Says:

    Gin and jambalaya

  16. alby Says:

    Penn Wisen and a capicola Primanti’s sandwich OMNOMNOM

  17. caostaff Says:

    Vodka, for sterilization purposes, because I’m a teetotaler, and watermelon, because I could eat that forever.

  18. bikemonkey Says:

    Primanti’s??? Fuck that shit!!!!


  19. Primanti’s??? Fuck that shit!!!!


    What the fuck is that shit? Italian ices?

  20. human Says:

    Yuengling, and chicken & sausage gumbo with crackers and rice.

  21. OpiateOfTheMasses Says:

    Nice distraction technique CPP.

  22. Toaster Says:

    Maybe it’s pedestrian of me, but:

    Draft Guinness Stout

    Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  23. Miss Outlier Says:

    Jack Daniels and my grandmother’s pecan brownies.

  24. D Says:

    A good tequila reposado and fish tacos w/mango.

  25. Uh, water and MREs.

    Of course if this is fantasy island, then, duh, Chablis and fresh pesto linguine.

  26. Grey Goose Vodka and hmm…bacon cheese burger

  27. jc Says:

    Sweet tea and baked manicotti.

  28. Physiogroupie IV Says:

    curry fries / jack and coke

    which reminds me…hooray for fridays!!

  29. JenniferRuth Says:

    Southern Comfort and Spaghetti Bolognese

    Probably wouldn’t go too well together though.

  30. Gonzo Says:

    Whisky sour and any food, where something bread-like is filled with meat and veg, like tacos, tortillas, hamburgers. Or maybe falafel in pita bread.
    The thought of having to survive without coffee freaks me out, so I insist, that it’s part of the meal.

  31. Gonzo Says:

    *Whiskey sour.
    (Haven’t had enough coffee yet.)

  32. Nice distraction technique CPP.

    Isabel, I know I could never distract you from your wackaloon obsession with oppressed white d00ds. However, I do need to throw my other readers a bone now and then.

  33. Lab Lemming Says:

    Grog is just a means of subserviating the native population.

  34. MissPrism Says:

    To drink, real ale, and probably a lightish one because desert islands are hot. Hop Back Summer Lightning would do. To eat, a good ploughman’s lunch: still-warm wholemeal bread, a chunk of Cashel Blue cheese, homemade chutney and a russet apple.

    (Ploughman’s lunch is just bread and cheese accompanied by pickles and/or salads and an apple. It appears on most pub menus in the UK and is an excellent barometer of whether the pub is good or shit. A crap pub will give you a revolting slimy sandwich of grated cheddar accompanied by a golden delicious and some coleslaw that tastes of PVA glue; a good pub will bother to source fresh local ingredients.)

  35. bikelib Says:

    pepperoni pizza and Jack & Coke

  36. juniorprof Says:

    Gewurztraminer and veggie duck (yes, its tofu duck that tastes better than real duck) in coconut curry flown in from ChuChai in Montreal. I’m ready to get stranded just thinking about it!!

  37. Ewan Says:

    Good champagne; whole-grain hazelnut-pecan-raisin caramel bread.

  38. rehctaw Says:

    Hacker-Pschorr and Jimmy John’s Gargantuan/w extra bread and condiments.

  39. BB Says:

    Tacos with pico de gallo and gauacomole, plus Clos de Nouys Vouvray served chilled.

  40. Glenmorangie and veggie supreme pizza.

  41. scribbler50 Says:

    Jack Daniels and any kind of pasta with meat sauce. (And semolina bread for dippin’ and dunkin’!)

  42. Science Bear Says:

    I’m unsure about the food item, but the alcoholic beverage would definitely be a Dirty Martini (made with dry gin and extra olives, served straight up in a chilled glass).

    The food item would be trickier, and I attempting to find one item that would keep me alive the longest, or more of a last meal kind of approach? That would make a huge difference on my answer.

  43. Patchi Says:

    Champagne & crapes with caviar

    If you’re gonna be stranded you should do it with style!

  44. cicely Says:

    Screwdrivers and pork loin wrapped in bacon.

    A relative bargain for whoever is in charge of supply, since my gall bladder would explode in pretty short order, but hey, we’re doing fantasy, right?

  45. alby Says:

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Yuengling


  46. DuWayne Says:

    For food, I would have to say Aybla’s gyros with feta – I could eat those motherfuckers all damned day. But instead of booze, could I just have my meds and water? Because I would really much rather have my pills and it would probably be a bad idea to drink alcohol with them.

    If not, I would take Basil Haydon straight, preferably slightly chilled.

  47. Blanton’s

    Steak fajitas with lots of peppers.

  48. chezjake Says:

    River Horse Brewery’s Hop Hazard Ale and Jambalaya (my own recipe).

  49. Russ Says:

    Guinness and eggs

  50. sciencegirl Says:

    Vodka and caviar.

  51. shane Says:

    Corona Light and popcorn with Nutrayeast.

  52. eb Says:

    Where are the wine drinkers?

    A very fine bottle of the best cab Napa Valley has to offer and a peanut butter and jelly sammich.

  53. ScienceMama Says:

    A nice light Belgian beer, and all-you-can-eat carnitas tacos.

  54. bustedsbro Says:

    Sweet southern iced and taco fucking salad.

  55. JLK Says:

    Patron Silver margaritas and nacho cheese Doritos.

  56. bikemonkey Says:

    alby that looks like total ass. Amato’s Italian!!!!

  57. yolio Says:

    champagne and pizza. probably a margharita pizza w/ a few extra veggies (broccoli? spinach?) for nutritional reasons.

  58. Physiogroupie IV Says:

    I love this post. All the trolls come out (myself included).

  59. Spiny Norman Says:

    Tanqueray (with tonic — NOT Canada Dry — and lime, if possible); and broccoli. Or turkey jerky. I could live on either one and not get tired of it.

  60. Do alcoholics get two food items? Or can we opt for weed?

    I expect reasonable accommodations, CPP. The ADA says you have to.

  61. Daisy, you can have weed instead of booze!

  62. As a non-drinker, I reserve the right to substitute the alcohol beverage for a non-alcohol alternative …

    Me, too. Coke Zero and chicken and black bean burritos.

  63. alby Says:

    Amato’s sucks. Don Campiti’s is way better.

  64. DuWayne Says:

    I see how it is asshole! Daisy can get her weed, but I don’t get my pills and am stuck with fucking kick-ass bourbon instead…Fuck that, if I can’t have my pills, I want to switch my choice to fucking weed!!!

  65. Dude, you can have weed, and pills, and bourbon! But then you only get broccoli to eat.

  66. leah Says:

    The finest pinot noir that can be found and chili cheese fries from the Town Hall in Minneapolis.

  67. I don’t even know what some of this shit is: Hacker-Pschorr, Blanton’s, Nutrayeast?!?

    I’d ordinarily go for Carbombs, but that’s too heavy for long-term beach drinking, so I’ll go with Amstel Light instead. Refreshing, most importantly, and I’ll hear nothing about it being a girly drink, because three of those will do me just fine.

    Also, macaroni and cheese, the homemade kind, with pepperjack and cheddar.

  68. Gingerale Says:

    Drink: Organic red wine, no sulfites. I wish I could say Jameson’s (like you say CPP to FSP today ) — but I can’t drink like I used to.

    Food: Chicken & biscuits.

  69. DuWayne Says:

    I’ll just take the pills and gyros then thanks.

    Did I mention that these are the best fucking gryos in the motherfucking world?

  70. MichelleSedai Says:

    Summer Snow Sake and Sushi

  71. Jared Says:

    For the sake of originality, I’ll have to avoid mention of sushi and sake, although I agree, however, considering this is an island, and I do know how to capture fish. I will instead defer to guaro (hint:Costa Rica) and ceviche de pulpo.

  72. Jared Says:

    Oh, and note to the jambalaya and gumbo people; what part of Louisiana are you from?

  73. Kelley Says:

    Woodchuck Amber Draft Cider and Chuy’s Baja Shrimp Tacos w/ Avocado.

    Bring on the island.

  74. leigh Says:

    i want some long islands and some fried cheese curds. (fried cheese curds are quite possibly the best drunk food EVER.)

  75. alby Says:

    Broccoli is fucking delicious!!!!1!!JordanStaalsNumber!!!!!1!!11

  76. LostMarbles Says:


    I’ve never had fried cheese curds, but the mention of cheese curds is tempting me to change my answer to poutine with bacon. Of course, then I’d also probably need a supply of statins on the island.

  77. mir Says:

    Patrón & tater tots.

  78. hypoglycemiagirl Says:

    Some Riesling from Alsace and mussels (moules marinière)

  79. Sven DiMilo Says:

    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
    Some of Daisy’s weed.
    And, uh…food…maybe a decent sausage pizza?

  80. QueerPhD Says:

    longisland ice teas and cheeseburger
