Quote from: Ithoriel on 11 October 2021, 01:29:01 PMI've just had a really bizarre chat with a cold caller, who, having failed to get me to buy an (undoubtedly fake) conservatory, informed me that his family were having chicken at Christmas because they didn't vote for Brexit so they could eat EU food. I pointed out that turkeys were originally American. He told me I was being conned by online fraudsters (irony much?) and turkey's came from Turkey. "The clue's in the name, innit?"So, would I be having EU turkey or good British chicken at Christmas.His response to my saying neither, as I was vegetarian, makes me think that he'd have been less shocked and revolted if I'd announced I was a Satan worshiping cannibal who drowned kittens for fun at the weekend.I suppose "long pig" would go in the world food section
