ROTFL, Tim. Sorry you are in kiwiland right now. A TV commercial here
celebrates 7-11 stores with a comic who strolls out the front door with
all sorts of junk food in her hands, looks at the camera and says,
"Perrier and pork rinds. Is this heaven, or whut!"

I'm beginning to wonder about Wayne Glowka and his ongoing diatribe
against American basse cuisine. He has in recent days attacked:
meat in general (I forget the details now, but the discussion
of some flesh product was making him sick)
s'mores in all their gooey varieties
jello salads and ambrosia (sans jello -- only FROZEN coolwhip
in my family, plus sliced bananas and apples, chopped
walnuts and maraschino cherries, heaps of shredded
coconut, and a fortifying splash of almond extract)
What will be next? Chocolate chip sprinkled pigs-in-a-blanket? Dump
cakes? Peanut butter and bologna sandwiches? Pork crackle? Fish
sticks? Goosewhiz lunchtime spread? American cheese? Polish Boys?
French hamburgers? Boston coolers? Ice-cold shandies? A six-pack of
those "full-flavored" Buds? At what point does culinary patriotism
kick in? What American foods *do* you eat, Wayne Glowka?
