Lucille Ball Turns 100 -- Her Five Craziest Food Clips
|Lucy gets herself into a chocolate mess in a classic I Love Lucy episode.|
Though everyone has their favorite Lucy episodes, the funniest ones are the ones that are food-related. That's really no surprise, because Lucille Ball was never better than when she got into a food fight -- be it in Italy with wine grapes or back in America with chocolate.
To celebrate Lucille Ball's 100th birthday, we bring you Lucy's five craziest food-related clips:
5. Lucy makes dinner on a schedule - In this clip, (long before women's rights), Ricky puts Lucy on a household chore schedule. Lucy gets back at him during a very important dinner party.
4. Lucy makes chicken with rice - When Ricky's mother comes to visit from Cuba, Lucy tries to impress her by making arroz con pollo. But there's a language (and culture) gap.
3. Lucy makes wine - When the gang goes to Italy, Lucy tries her hand at stomping grapes. After having a little too much fun, she gets schooled by a local... and ends up in a classic food fight.
2. Lucy and Ethel make chocolate - Lucy and Ethel decide to get jobs, but they're unqualified to do practically anything... including make chocolate. 1. Lucy sells Vitameatavegamin - Lucy gets a shot at a live television commercial, selling vitamin tonic. The only problem is that it's basically booze in a bottle. Too bad it's not available - we'd buy a case.
