    Only in Sardinia.

    Inland they just cudgel you bologna and insults until you fall asleep or leave.

    But only the crunchy kind.

    True. It's hard to make a truly bad burrito or taco but I've seen it done.

    Couple local spots are pretty good; the one we go to the most has a wide variety of tasty salsas that makes the difference.

    Which are worse, anchovies or sardines?

    Nah. Neither is bad if they’re proper. The barely there salt bones you buy in the stores aren’t proper.

    It is just completely absurd. We've entered the "post facts" phase of our society, where someone with twelve years of school, thirty years of experience, and peer-reviewed published research can be countered with "yeah, but watch this YouTube video with an open mind."

    Sadly this isn't just about the vaccine or science, but rather any topic someone wants to disagree on. You can see them coming a mile away, when they start rolling their eyes and saying, "oh, sure, but where did your hear THAT?"

    speaking of which, my friends: the new New Yorker has an amazing article on the gargantuan popularity of "French Tacos." They are not tacos as we know them, and the term for one is a "tacos," but they sure sound great to me...huge fast food chains have sprung up over this marvel. Let me quote from the article:

    "a flour tortilla, slathered with condiments, piled with meat, usually halal, and other things (usually french fries)doused in cheese sauce, folded into a rectangular packet, then toasted on a grill." Origins are unclear, but there certainly seems to be some Algerian influence...they term it "a rather successful marriage between panini, kebab and burrito." They've been around for about 20 years, and have become gigantically popular.

    This is THE junk food of the French, with a great "cost to calorie" ratio...When you order, you look at various columns and choose: the size, the meat, the sauce (great choices) and the extras.

    The author raved about her choice: "The Original" with sauce Algerienne, chicken breast and cheddar, with internal fries and cheese sauce, made with creme fraiche and Gruyere, big enough for "bicep curls."

    All this popped up in the environs of Lyons in southern France.

    And by the way, the article notes that despite what some think, the French love junk food, and a 2015 study showed that half the population is now overweight or obese...

    Budwom, when they tell you “tonight you sleep with the fishes” that’s usually a bad sign!

    uh oh, might have to cancel our reservations! I thought an anchovy on the pillow was a sign of respect! Little did I know...

    I do live in Texas now. I'll probably go truck shopping next week.

    You were right to use the term usually and I assumed you were thinking about Troy McClure when you said that.
