Another brit here. Vegetarian too, but can still appreciate conceptual
chunky bacon.

an intro to Ruby with Cartoon Foxes. Some of the oddness works like
the Head First books. Some of it goes straight past me, but there’s
excellent work on metaprogramming in that book. See also RedHanded.

Hmmmm, I never considered the possibility that why might be a brit.
On the other hand a little bit of diging and whoising seems to make me
think that he’s really a Texican.

And while I’d describe British bacon as thickly sliced, lean, and
delicious, I don’t think I’d call it chunky.

Since the brits seem to have brought up ferrin food in the form of HP
sauce, I just had to try to stir up the ozzies since I heard on the
news this morning that the US gummint has started blocking the
importation of Vegemite. Something in it that they think should only
be in bread and cereal.

Huh? When did this happen? What’s in bread and cereal?

Vegemite includes folate (or folic acid) which the FDA only allows in
bread and cereal.

There’s some dispute as to whether or not the FDA has actually banned
Vegemite, although there have been reports that it has been
disappearing from U.S. stores which formerly sold it.

HP is a sauce? Now I think I’ve seen it in the grocery stores here in
Portland.

I know you either love it or hate it, but this this seems to be the
patriot act of food importing game!

Yes. It’s actually a couple of different “steak” sauces, but when
Brits and Canadians ask for HP sauce, they’re wanting the classic
flavour. Better than A1, worse than Heinz 57 (in my taste). No, I
don’t eat steak, but it’s decent on home fries and fries in general.
Although I prefer fritesauce on my fries (that’s mayo for you yanks)
and Heinz 57 on my home fries.

Folate. Aparently, some ozzies have been asked whether they’re
bringing Vegemite in. Officially, Vegemite (similar to Marmite) is
illegal in the U.S. Unofficially, they’ve looked the other way for
personal amounts imported.

The US banning vegemite is a myth:

It’s not clear whether or not it’s really banned. It seems to be
disappearing from shelves, and some have reported confiscation at
ports of entry. The administration seems to have disavowed this, but
perhaps they haven’t decided whether to ‘cut and run’ or ‘stay the
course’ on Vegemite.

Personally I tasted it once when I was in Sydney for a month, but left
it to an ozzie colleague to have it for breakfast most mornings.
