"What Does It Mean" - Groovy Times In Babylon, 1998

When I stayed overnight in an Oxford hotel last Wednesday night, a card advertising some of their room service items was on my nightstand. I couldn't help but wonder what Americans uninitiated to some of the more oddly-named items of British cuisine must think when they see this....

Well, the last one seems like it should be served with a side of anti-biotics.

I'm going with the soup. Best price, least mystery, although the crust on the roll worries me. (I actually am not concerned by the spotted dick, frequent visitor to the UK that I am, but I have no idea on the west country faggots.) Maybe best to ask if they have a chicken tikka masala.

Hell, I'm more afraid of choking on that ever present inclusive VAT. Heh.

They're pork and sage meatballs, Greg, and not too bad to eat!

Everybody, I like the second item on the menu...IF they are called meatballs and NOT the "f" word...!!!

Well thanks very much Janet - now you've gone and made me all homesick!
