    Pretty sure that you never use a spatula with BBQ so he must really have a grill.

    He didn’t grow up in the suburbs in the 50’s and 60’s.

    A fork that large is a weapon, so that is also a problem.

    All cultural heritage is shareable except for English-speaking Caucasian Patriarchial Heritage, which is the current fad target of discrimination.Mind you, I’m not complaining, just observing.

    Joni sums it up pretty well: ♪♫ “He put her in a ranch house on a hill. She could see the valley barbecues from her window sill, see the blue pools in the squinting sun, hear the hissing of summer lawns.” ♫♪

    They do kind of have a point, the suburbs are rather culturally barren.

    In early Nordic and Germanic societies, a “thing” was a governing assembly made up of the free people of the community [aka folkmoot]. It was presided over by a ‘law-speaker’. Things took place at regular intervals, usually in large open areas that were easily accessible by travel.

    Things functioned both as parliaments and courts at different levels of society—local, regional, and supra-regional. Their purpose was to solve disputes and make political decisions. Things were also often used for public religious rites, social events and opportunities for trade.

    The Alþingi is the supreme national parliament of Iceland.

    I too appreciate the sharing of cultural heritage, but what I’ll never understand is the irritation some people express at so-called “cultural appropriation”. What exactly is the problem supposed to be, anyway?

    If Adam and Eve discovered the circle and square, is it somehow or other evil for Gentiles to use them? Are we prohibited from enjoying fireworks if we’re not Chinese? Must we give up the number zero if we’re not Indian, or jazz if we’re not African, or skiing if we’re not Scandinavian, or surfing if we’re not Polynesian? Sushi if we’re not Japanese? Pizza if we’re not Italian? Democracy if we’re not Greek?

    The world is a splendidly variegated place, full of wonderful, imaginative people, and it’s just arrogant to think that only white Anglo-Saxon Americans can possibly come up with good ideas. If we see something cool we like from another culture, celebrate it and use it! Heck, that’s the way the entire English language developed!

    Nobody should have a monopoly on, or veto power over, good HUMAN ideas.

    As one that lived many years there, I want to go on record that there is no such thing as St. Louis-style-BBQ. It was created by a chain restaurant marketing department and mixes KC & Memphis sauce. St. Louis did create the ice cream cone and toasted ravioli (I recommend the former and never the latter).
