Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

Neanderthal chilli-heads.

on December 13, 2012

Silly title, silly brain. I always wonder why people first ate certain foods – especially things like chilli which just burn your mouth if they’re the really hot ones. And stuff like cheese – who would eat moldy milk that’s solidified?

Anywho, very funny image in my head is of a couple of neanderthals daring each other to eat chillis because you know, Bill here can kill an aurochs on his own but he can’t eat one of the little chilli peppers. (Forgive the gross anachronisms but it made me chuckle).

    Lobster gets me. Who first ate a lobster?

    The idea of popcorn always makes me smile, I imagine a cave-man overcooking his corn, then realizing it’s actually not bad 😛

    We had a discussion just this week about how some foods came about. For instance we all “get” milk/cream and such; but who thought up ice cream?! And who decided an artichoke looked like a good idea?

    • Probably somebody with a skewed set of tastebuds. I don’t like artichokes, can you tell? It’s such an odd concept of who actually tried these foods or made them first, and why did they?

        We are a house divided; I adore artichokes, but the Manchild hates them. Tho’ I notice he devours several dips in which they are suitably disguised lol!
