Thanks, Roger. (So to speak the doggie version of fish & chips.)

Just one more reason to join us on the Springfield Tour, this October 2-3

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

I don't think so, Eva, but you can get a nice shirt:

Hint #1: He said this about more than one.
I am sorry I am going to give up on this one.When Mrs. Welles came to view Carpenter's EP painting and saw it was still in progress, she told the newspapers made her believe it was nearly finished. Carpenter called the newspaper reports " unreliable," and Mr. Lincoln added: "That is to say, Mrs. Welles, that they lie and then they re-lie!".

Roger, thanks for guessing, you win another Cozy Dog dish.

A Super Size Me challenge originates from the 2004 documentary "Super Size Me", where a guy spends a month eating every meal at McDonald's and explains the health effects on your body. I saw it in 9th Grade and was laughing so hard I was crying when the guy's quarter pounder with cheese meal disagreed with him (I was just a kid and lived off jokes about vomiting).

Thanks, Thomas. I saw the docu, but at the very moment didn't remember, now I do. It took him much longer to get back to normal after the experiment.

What is in those pita pockets? Somehow it looks more Middle Eastern to me than German.

Dürüm a Turkish wrap that is usually filled with döner kebab (lamb or beef meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie), chopped lettuce, cabbage, onions, cucumber, tomatoes, and a choice of sauces: hot sauce, herb sauce, garlic sauce, and/or yogurt sauce (as you like it). The dürüm in the picture is filled with fallafel instead of döner kebab, fried balls made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel originated in Egypt, but are a common dish throughout the Middle East.

This probably the most popular fast food in Germany. There are countless kebab shops everywhere. Well, and hot dog (better: Bratwurst or Currywurst) and fish roll stands are numerous, too.

Yum! An even better reason to renew my passport!

Truth to be told, German cuisine isn't famous. And rightly so. (The only real good thing I can think of is chocolate.)

RE: Who Said This?
Except for the fish and chips sold by street vendors, England took the cake for the worst food when I was there. I loved Germans' beer gardens and most of their sausages. For dinner, I particularly loved wiener schnitzel and have yet to find one as tasty here at home. A mom and pop restaurant in Clinton used to serve it under the name of breaded veal cutlet, and it came close to beating the German variety.

Austrian food was much the same, but I have to share something. My friend and I arrived at a small hostel in the Austrian Alps right after they had cleared their communal table from lunch. The proprietress offered to find something for us in the kitchen, and we said that a sandwich would be fine. I don't know about now, but forty years ago, sandwiches were not easy to come by in Europe. She offered us some steak tartare -- and, of course, we had no idea what that was.

When a patty of raw hamburger with a raw egg in the center of it was placed in front of us, we behaved and showed no emotion - just thanked the lady and wondered what to do next. When she left the room, we started forking up small amounts at a time and stuffing them into our large, linen napkins. When we got back to our rooms, we opened a window and started throwing the bits out to some dogs below. I'm sure that the lady must have wondered what happened to her napkins, but loose lips sink ships and get you thrown out of places.

That night, we shared a table with two German couples who were delightful. At first, we were a little concerned because, when they found out we were American, they told us that they had been German p.o.w's of the Americans for the last two years of the war. We started to apologize (it just seemed the right thing to do), but they quickly told us that they were treated better by the Americans than they were ever treated by their Nazi officers. They then introduced us to schnappes and proceeded to see if they could get us drunk. Again, my lips are sealed...

When we finally returned to New York, my fiance met me at the airport and asked if I was hungry. It had been about a seven-hour flight from Amsterdam, so yes I was. And the first thing I wanted was a McDonald's Big Mac, french fries, and a large Coke WITH ICE IN IT! Quenching one's thirst back then in Europe was a chore. I remember standing in line at watermelon stands in Rome at midnight trying to get water from that fruit to quench my thirst. I'm sure things have changed since then.

RE: Who Said This?
Who spoke these words? When? Where?

“I should like to help everyone if possible—Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another.

“Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate and has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind.

“We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.”

RE: Who Said This?
A great quote, and I will be interested in who said it.

I'll guess it's post WW 2, based on the "goose stepped" comment.
(I cheated and looked it up. I never would have guessed it.)

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
