Potatoes on pizza sound great.  Congratulations on being thrown out of the Vatican.

Daniel, you got thrown out of the Vatican?! MY MAN!!! High Five!

Comment by Patricia on April 22, 2014 at 2:18pm

Makes a lot of sense doesn't it, but that's hilarious Daniel!

I haven't had much in Italian food other than what I've learned myself from tv cooking shows, but I love the flavors I have tried. Garlic hates me now too, so I have to omit that in my cooking.  (*sniffle*). I've been using shallots instead.

I visited the Vatican too.  They won't let you in wearing shorts, even though the statues are naked and the paintings in the Sistine Chapel are naked.  My stubborn partner brought his shorts, and went into a restroom and changed, inside the Vatican.  Almost immediately the Swiss guards grabbed both us and pushed us out of Vatican City.  I have always taken great pride in having been physically thrown out of the Vatican.

Which reminds me I love Italian food.  Rome has wonderful food.  My favorite was pizza rustica,, which has potatoes in the topping.

That ``explanation`` is a joke that has been around for years so it's nothing I made up.

I did print & take it to my doctor a long time ago & told him his higher education was a waste of time when all he had to do was read this stuff....he laughed, & then I had to find some joke to bring in with every visit.

He was an atheist as well, which I found out after my cancer diagnosis, because he asked if I was religious. I said not a chance....religion is based on superstition & I don`t buy any of it. Then we had many discussions, & being a traveller, he had visited the vatican once, & said the riches there would solve all the world`s hunger issues......& on it went.

Too bad he retired last year, I miss knowing we had a man of ``no gawd`` treating us.....& the jokes of course.

Patricia, your "chocolate is a vegetable" parody reminds me of the sillyness in a belief of god. I guess rationalization is the word.

Comment by Pat on April 22, 2014 at 7:22am

Patricia, I'm going to copy and print your explanation of chocolate as a vegetable. I want to hear how my physician can counter that. Take that, Doc!

And, I'll then make another pilgrimage to the greatest health food store in the world. The M&M's Store on the Strip in Las Vegas.

Here's the wall on the 2nd floor. Each column, 8' high, has every color of every flavor they make.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 22, 2014 at 12:04am

Patricia, that is exactly right chocolate is a vegetable and for all the reasons you give. 

Comment by Sentient Biped on April 21, 2014 at 10:22pm

I need to have a vegetable now.

I always said that about carrot cake, too.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 21, 2014 at 7:14pm

That's funny, Patricia....and oh, so true!
