✹ About Saturday 9 April 1664 Lex Lector on 12 Apr 2017 • Link Honeycomb; bag; blanket; leaf... all kinds of tripe need "dressing" before they're allowed out. In UK they're mostly bovine, but there's pig bag too. Pressed udder was (is?) sold as "elder".Tripe! It's the tofu of Old (Northern) England: high protein, no fat, accepts flavours...you can dip in a herbed batter for "Tripe tempura" yum! tripe - assuming you aren't vegetarian - is terrific. Cultures where waste is frowned upon eat their animals top-to-toenail: in a Korean-owned restaurant in Minami, Osaka we regularly braised our own unrecognisable bits of animal digestive (and other?) tract over charcoal at the table and ate with dips and kimchi. Mm! It's truly decadent, isn't it, to eat only the "attractive" bits of animals? Dave: bedwetting - I have an edition of John Ray (founder member, Royal Society)'s "Proverbs" - the expanded 2nd end. of 1690 or so which includes "he who first a good name gets, may piss a bed and say he sweats" Sam?
