"mouth watering"


Jason saw this in Lake George NY. He writes "They're quite confident that their ribs are the best... but as for the mouth watering part? Not so much." Now that I am thinking of ways people could mis-interpret mouth watering, it's all quite disturbing. I don't recommend it. Maybe that's the reason for the quotation marks.

Also, complainers, please note the cited source when they claim to be the best - withOUT quotation marks. Much more credible.

Whose mouth is watering what here, by the way? Is "Mouth watering ribs" like "hose watering lawn"?

"Just so you understand, son, we're not talking about these ribs literally spraying water into your mouth. That would be crazy. We mean they're real tasty, and they smell good, so you're likely to start salivating when you sit down to eat them. Figure of speech, you see?"

regardless of quotations, my mouth did start to water, until i noticed the creepy pig in the upper right. aside from a serious penis-nose, the expression on his face leads me to believe he has a very unhealthy relationship with those ribs. my mouth dried up faster than a... well i'm too disturbed to make up a cute simile.

In this case, there's an argument that "mouth watering" could be a quote from someone that's eaten the ribs and really enjoyed the experience.
