A Can of Whoop Ass

Since I opened up a can of whoop ass chickpeas to include in my lunch today, I wanted to use the little guys in my dinner, too.

Side note: Who remembers the “open up a can of whoop ass” days? According to UrbanDictionary.com the saying is “one of the most over used and lamest of all sayings. Bears little meaning anymore. In the same outdated category as terms ‘don’t go there’ and ‘talk to the hand.'”

I also enjoyed this definition of a can of whoop ass: “Something Chuck Norris never has to open because he makes his own.”


Chuck Norris

Those Chuck Norris “facts” entertain me for days. Some favorites include:

  • Chuck Norris can divide by zero.
  • Chuck Norris can touch MC Hammer.
  • It takes Chuck Norris 20 minutes to watch 60 Minutes.
  • Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect Four in three moves.
  • Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.

Feel free to share your favorite Chuck Norris “facts.” 😀

Okay, I think I got a little off track there… a can of whoop ass and Chuck Norris will do that to ya, I guess.


Dinner tonight incorporated the aforementioned chickpeas into a pasta bowl.


Along with Carba Nada egg fettuccine noodles, I added scallops, yellow squash, spinach, chickpeas, marinara sauce and Parmesan cheese to my noodle-y meal.

Marinara Sauce

Parmesan Cheese, Please!

To me, pasta is one of the most satisfying meals in the universe.
