Made With Free-Range Shepherds

Some things are just plain right, and some just clearly wrong.

Krispy Kreme doughnuts: Wrong. A waste of time and calories.
Dunkin' Donuts: Right. Recommended by doctors 3 to 1.

On pizza, all wrong: anchovies, eggplant, pineapple. Bacon would be wrong, except bacon is always right.

Our cousins across the pond have their own icons, and their own beliefs. The Daily Telegraph reports:
After a day spent drinking, Michael Garvin cooked his brother John the traditional English dish for dinner, expecting a grateful response.

John, however, voiced his disquiet that the pie was not topped with a layer of sliced tomatoes.

His brother, a chef, claimed a layer of tomatoes was not the appropriate way to finish off a shepherd’s pie, and responded by hitting him over the head with a shovel.

As the argument got out of control, John threatened to petrol bomb his brother’s flat and was arrested.
Thank God that the Brits still produce strong, rough men willing to stand up for what's right.

I read recently that Scotch whisky accounts for 25% of the food and beverage exports from Great Britain. That sounds impressive until you realize that Britain produces remarkably little edible food. So, there's Scotch, Twining's tea, and Walker's shortbread. Then what? The Oldtimer

Well, Hell, anyone can do that. It takes a real man to print out G&S on the tomatoes before reading.
