Great Wooded South: Language and eating

Price and atmosphere have absolutely nothing to do with taste

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

I dont have much time this morning, for which many are giving thanks I am sure, but I just wanted to let you know that the Great Wooded South has been researching language and eating for several decades.

In a strange turn of events we had suspected and have learned that the two are inextricably linked.

For instance we have found that sushi is code for raw fish and cold rice, a poke of tater chips tastes much better than a mere bag of chips and in a somewhat related notion our research shows that price and atmosphere have absolutely nothing to do with taste. -Billy Joe Fudge
