Pig: Hey, Rat. Whatcha getting for breakfast? Rat: I'm thinking about ordering a bunch of bacteria that's been thrown into milk and allowed to ferment. Goat: It's called yogurt. Rat: I like to be precise.

    It sounds so much better to refer to them as “active yogurt cultures.”

    Rat sometimes amazes me! I like yogurt, whether mass-brand USA-made or Greek (as in made, bought, and consumed in Greece, when I visited there). Plain, with honey!

    I usually described things that are cultured as “selectively rotted.” (I eat them despite the colorful name, with the exception of buttermilk.)

    I always refer to it as “rancid milk”. The only place I can stomache yogurt is in Indian cooking.

    From the Matthau/Lemmon version of “The Odd Couple” (1968):“I’ve got brown sandwiches and green sandwiches.”“What are the green ones?”“Either very new cheese or very old meat.”Thank you, Neil Simon.

    Rat’s still going to eat the stuff. He just wants proper labeling. Just like pork barbecue should be called charred dead pig with sweet and sour goop poured on it.

    When my son was little, one day at the dinner table he said “I’ve got to go poop.” My wife said, “Please don’t be so precise.”So ever since then, he announces “I’m going to be precise” in that situation.Now Rat is saying it.

    It was in 3rd grade when the rumors started as to what Jello was made out of. In 4th grade, the rumors were confirmed. Haven’t touched Jello since (about 50 years).

    I believe “yogurt” is derived from an old Romanian word that means “Something that used to be milk.”÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷I tried eating Yoplait yogurt, but no matter which flavor I tried it was nasty. Maybe yogurt should come in capsules, so you can get all the benefits without having to taste it.

    Spoiled is the word you want. Like a certain class of people, it spoils, fills with gas, floats to the top, and clots together…and now we’re faced with finding a new use for them. ‘It’.

    Personally I favor using them as targets for guillotine practice.And then…eat the rich. Ingest whatever virtues they have, enjoy their sweet, broiled fat and tender, unworked flesh…

    And start over…

    First thought: Cheeses, beer, wine, bread soy sauce: all similar. OK, beer, wine and bread use yeasts, not bacteria, but that’s a minor point. And bread, being baked, kills the yeast off. Not sure about soy sauce, but it’s fermented.

    Second: there are far more bacteria cells in any person (except maybe one yet to be born) than human cells. One problem with some antibiotics is that they can kill off the good cultures, or distort the mix, and then the bad bacteria and other animalcules take over and wreak havoc.

    Oh, and Third: precision can be amusing. I recall C.S.Lewis’s restating civilization’s oratorical claim into simpler, more precise language in Out of the Silent Planet—they didn’t sound so nice then.

    Actually, something like 90% of the cells in “our” bodies are not “us”, but trillions of symbiotic microorganisms. We’re colonial entities.
