    Nick8, you know very well I cannot be seen eating black-truffled-stuffed brie @ $20/lb. I sympathize with the laborers of the world, the common workers, the proletariat.


    How is it possible for one set of privileged persons to feast on, say, Porterhouse Steak with Bourbon and Shallot Sauce and grilled vegetables with a bordeaux wine... while the working man eats his Cup o' Noodles and the family in Somalia divvies up 3 cups of white rice?

    There's an appalling, inequitable distribution of wealth.


    Trader Joe's has some extra-sharp aged cheddar cheese for $3.16. I suppose it would be all right to treat me to that. In fact, we could make quesadillas - provided a gourmet salsa is not bought from the Garden of Eden.

    Let us try to eat, as the average working man does, on $4.12 per person per day. It may take some ingenuity, but we will consider it a worthwhile challenge that will ultimately bring us to a closer understanding of the plight of the average american worker.

    We shall eat hot dogs with mac 'n cheese as we sing along to Billy Bragg's inspiring "Socialist Internationale".

    YouTube - The Internationale


    Stand up, all victims of oppression
    For the tyrants fear your might
    Dont cling so hard to your possessions
    For you have nothing, if you have no rights
    Let racist ignorance be ended
    For respect makes the empires fall
    Freedom is merely privilege extended
    Unless enjoyed by one and all

    (etc)

    I love Billy Bragg! :smile:

    I'm cool with hot dogs and mac n' cheese, but I have to admit that I love baked brie with fruit (probably not as expensive as the brie in the OP though...)

    Yeuch! Do you know what goes into hot dogs? I'd have haggis instead.
