Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

HungrY for a DanisH Perhaps?



I give you: "The Danish"

"The Danish's distinctive dough was first created in the 17th century by a French apprentice baker who forgot to add butter to the flour and tried to hide his mistake by folding lumps of it into the dough. It became known as "a thousand leaves" in France.

It was copied in Italy - where it is known as "folded pastry" - and Italian bakers took it to Austria. It journeyed from there to Denmark when Danish bakers went on strike and replacements imported from Austria brought along what became known in Denmark as "Viennese Bread."

The pastry became the Danish to the rest of the world, probably, according to the Danish bakers' union, because Danish bakers emigrated to so many countries.
History lesson courtesy My Way News.


But not anymoreeeeeeeeeeeeeee...ya know how Prince became the dude formerly known as Prince and then morphed into nothing but a mere symbol..
May I present the pastry "formerly known as the Danish"
"Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for "Roses of the Prophet Mu-hammad."
No, I'm not kidding.

In Tehran bakeries across the capital covered up their ads for Danish pastries Thursday after the confectioners' union ordered the name change in retaliation for caricatures of the Muzlim prophet published in a Danish newspaper.

Umm...a bit of perspective here.. At least 19 people have been killed in protests over the past several weeks..not to mention the ones wounded and the property burned and destroyed.
Iran, being the poster child for peace and good will has cut all commercial ties with Denmark in retaliation for the prophet cartoons.

Well if you ask me,it's a bit of an alliteration or is it a tongue twister......Ordering a "cheese- roses of the prophet(?) Mu-hammad", no make that a "prune - roses of the prophet(?) Mu-hammad...
On second thought - never mind, I think I lost my appetite.

    I guess if we can have "freedom" Fries, they can have their "roses of Mohammed".
    Either way, it is what it is.

    considering that the daNISH is the 1st cousin to the kNISH..it is easy to see where the problems come in...the daNISH and the kNISH are foods popular in democratic countries..therefore it is simple to see the leap taken by mooooslimb
    coutries to get hostile toward them..thank muuuuhammmadd that pizza is still on the protected list..

    This typical of the Muslim mentality. They change the names of the cities they conquer {eg:Constantinople) Converts change thier names, kaffir names are just so harim.

    It shows that boycotts of very popular items never work. People just rename them so they can claim to boycott. They are only refusing to use the name. It is twisted logic, just like our freedom fries.

    It is also a small positive step. They cannot live without Danish, so just rename it and eat it.

    Yeah, stupid is what it is. That's what it is in both cases.
