I never thought it was possible to write so much about the history of people eating breakfast.

Well when you go on a camping trip food is your most expensive item, your most important asset, and your most looked-forward-to event.

Shit's important.

wikipedia wrote:Spotted dick is a traditional English steamed suet pudding containing dried fruit (usually currants), commonly served with either custard or butter and brown sugar. Spotted refers to the dried fruit (which resemble spots) and Dick may be a contraction/corruption of the word pudding (from the last syllable) or possibly a corruption of the word dough.[1] It is possibly conjugated originally from sticky pudding to dicky pudding to dicky to dick and finally spotted dick as in pudding with raisins.[citation needed] It is also known as spotted dog, plum duff, steamed dicky, figgy dowdy, dotted lloyd, packphour's lament, dicky widmark as well as plum bolster, dick in a box, Spotted Richard and, occasionally, Dickie Burton after the famous actor.[citation needed]


i prefer dick in a box, personally. :lol:

I don't trust this theory. It still needs citations.

We discussed this and me and my flatmates have come to the conclusion that eating chicken nuggets was the highlight of our weird weekend, which I will post pics of at some point.

Thanksgiving is a weird concept to me. I remember last year some guy came into the supermarket I worked at and he was absolutely shocked that we only sold the same amount of turkeys as any other part of the year.

What is thanksgiving actually for? Who are you thanking?

Well, upon going back to what they teach us in the second grade or so; Thanksgiving is a time for being happy and having an overall feeling of togetherness with the people you love.

Some people thank god, and for some people they just make it a time to be content with everything they have in life.

Of course, for more disfunctional families it's that day the mom would be stressed because she has to cook, the dad argues with the son-in-law over stupid stuff, and complete chaos until they all just sit down and eat.

Far cry from what the pilgrims had in mind but that's my definition of the whole affair.

i always thought it had something to do with people moving to america for the first time to kill some injuns and settle there, then celebrate their arrival by eating themselves to death on turkeys.

checking wiki.
ok... wiki gives jack shitt.

I love gorging myself. I only eat turkey once a year.

If by Christmas you mean gift exchange and religious holiday, no.

If by Christmas you mean there's a meal shared among your extended family as per tradition, yes.
