Points to Ponder

1. Who was that Crazy-assed person that figured out how you eat an artichoke?
2. What lazy baker left his dough to sit out under a tree, neglecting it all that time to find it had doubled in size?
a. in fact, the whole bread process....you take a crappy piece of grass, knock off the tops, somehow get rid of the crud, dry it, crush it, mix it with other stuff, add tree-crud to it, neglect it, bake it (were the first "loaves" eaten raw?)
3. how many Japanese do you supposed croaked before they figure out how to get pufferfish belly sliced right and in the right amount to be a delicacy?
4. And hats off to those early pioneers who took a anemic looking blade of grass with a cple of "pustules" on it and then practiced GMO techniques until they finally arrived at those golden ears
5. "Seriously Walter.ya take these here leaves.dry 'em and then roll em up and smoke 'em and you'll eventually have doctors smoking more Lucky Strikes than any other brand?"
6. That big red thing off that nice plant that will kill you! Maybe we can give some to Italians and take care of the problem down there
7.Bury the fish then dig it up later? Are you nuts? That's good fertilizer!
8.We can take those sharks we catch, slice em up and freeze them and no one will ever know it's not Swordfish....how cheap is that?
9. If the Warden tries to feed us that damn red bottom feeder one more time, we gonna revolt! That's the 3rd time we've had lobster this week!
10. Ok, this machine will "zap" the food with special rays and it will cook the food but not heat the plates up too much. It's safe to humans as long as you stay behind this shield
11. Bonus Round........Are you Crazy, Doctor? Bread Mold is bread mold..it's no damn good for anything except ruining bread!

    Dear FCF:
    HUH? You certainly put a lot of work into that list. My goodness, you must have been in either a terrible or a wonderful mood tonight. Could you let us into the thought process?

    Friedrich A. Hayek spent a lot of thoughtful time contemplating issues such as these and published a collection of these analyses in Individualism and Economic Order.
     
    For those of you who may be interested, here is a 'free' pdf of this work by the Nobel Prize-winning economist.

    Two fingers of vodka and a lot of tonic while waiting for our 28 yr old daughter to call.  And..over on another site.....foodies were bitching and moaning about everything from dogs in restaurants to no Blacks in food reporting in DC to how pretentious it is for someone to eat pizza with a knife and fork to the idiot who wanted some school to cut down all its oak trees because her son is allergic to nuts (eg. acorns)
     
    Coupled with the paens of the faithful to Whole foods and Trader Joes........I decided we folks needed to lighten up and smile a bit
    And when you think about it (especially bread!)  it must have taken generations mlleniums to figure it all out!
     
     
    and note....I said another site..Roadfooders have a good sense of humor!
     
     
    Oh.and yeah.we had artichokes for dinner

    Your list deserves a wider audience. How long did it take you to work it up?

    I'll bet that the person who thought it would be a better idea to take the feathers off a bird before you cooked it, became a popular neighbor!

    I love the list although I must admit I can't understand all of it. I figured you might have had a drink and was aggravated about something. I agree that it deserves a wider audience. I would have had to give up on that other site. Such people.

    Speaking of feathers, I wonder just how many are on a mourning dove, anyway? My cat brought in one, thankfully dead, this morning and there are feathers all over my carpet. I have to remind myself to be gracious and thank him for the thought at least. It is hard to be cross with him when he looks so pleased and is playing with it. I tossed it outside and let him enjoy it out there. He did eat it eventually. Just like a kid. I adopted him last year and the name he came with is Pounce, of all things. I kept the name since it is so apt." />

    And along with fat, went the glutens, the salt, the spices, and eventually the meat itself finally disappeared.........but the gruel was filling , if not cheap, when bought at the Holy Food store

    Anyone who wishes it may have all the fat from any meat I am ever going to eat. After it is cooked.
