I've seen the "Spotted Dick" can on the import food shelves at Meijer -- it's a perfectly normal British dessert pudding.

Part of my job has me looking at newspapers from past eras -- "666" cold remedy has been around for at least 75 years. I was surprised to see it still available.

Some of those foreign idioms are perhaps mistranslated. The Hebrew one actually says "bothering EGGS for no reason" (Hebrew has no word for 'testicles' and the word 'someone' in the translation doesn't correspond to anything.)

Snyavshi Shtany, PO VOLOSAM NE GLADYAT: "having taken off pants, don't look at hair".  It's ambiguous whether it's your hair or her hair that shouldn't be looked at.

My dim memories Brain's Faggots from school dinners long ago, is that they tasted if anything *worse* than the name would suggest, and if I recall rightly it was actually the 'Rich West Country Sauce' that they are advertised with there that really turned the stomach.

I can't imagine eating *any* of that.

When in Vienna, we were rather amused to observe that that *is* the way one eats a frankfurter or "hot dog" over there. if you buy any other sausage at a "wurstel wagon", including a bratwurst, they cut it up and you eat the slices with a fork. Frankfurters are served whole and people pick them up and eat them, well, like a banana--.

And of course you realize my first reaction was "WTF?" to that first link, and my second reaction was "I am totally swiping this link and reposting it on my other journal," right? ;)

That picture is INSANE!

Re: the hot dog can label ...

I don't know ... it looks like the man loves what he's doing. And has no gag reflex.

Would you hit me if I said he seems to "relish" it?
