in thread My favorite food for feasting:

One time I was traveling and getting a little bit tired of eating steak. I asked if they had something besides meat, and they replied yes, they had chicken.

This was in southern Germany, and it wasn't a translation error since the person who asked for me speaks fluent German. (I've actually had some of the best vegetarian food at the German Perl Workshop, but I don't think that's the norm.)

Oh, and people who eat fish and seafood (but not other meats) should just call themselves pescetarian. Otherwise they're deluding themselves.

# I eat most red meat and fowl, but not fish or pork. The term for this diet is 'picky'.

    I've heard "vegetarians" use a pizza name in defense -- frutti di mare! :-)

    Well, I was in Dortmund, Germany in March, and I must have had a dozen straight meals where I had pig. Man, I was dying for some lovely grilled beef when I got home.
