No Casseroles for You!

There is a special place in copy-editing hell for the writers and producers of menus. Jay Leno, of course, gets great mileage out of them on his show.

Here's one I was looking at because one of my favorite TV personalities, Guy Fieri of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" on the Food Network recently taped a segment at the place.

It's from the Farmer's Shed in Lexington, S.C.

I know what they're saying, but it's odd idiom and sounds more like: Hey, you want a casserole? You can't have no stinkin' casseroles.

Better put, "Not all casseroles available all the time."

Or: All casseroles not always available.

Yep, that'll work too.
