Serious Eats: Talk
I was reading about oats the other day and came across the definition of oats in Samuel Johnson's dictionary as: "a grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people". A little bit of a stuck-up up attitude there toward the Scots. No matter; Scottish reply to that is: "England is known for the quality of its horses, and Scotland for its men".
Have any humorous food-related quotes or jokes to share?
