    Default Please help me out!


    Hello Everyone. I hope that you all are having a fabulous day. I have a
    favor to ask and everyone is welcome to participate and assist me on
    this. I am a college student taking an Anthropology course on food and
    culture. We were assigned the task of conducting an interview of two
    people from two different cultures pertaining to the kinds of
    food/cuisine within their culture. After the interview, we are
    instructed to write a 6 page “Ethnographic report”, which is due on
    October 2, 2011. I am trying to get an early start on this report and
    not wait at the very last minute. 6 pages is a lot of writing. Please
    don’t hesitate to help out. I would greatly appreciate it, and thank you
    all so much and from the bottom of my heart.

    Here are the following questions: (Please be as descriptive and detailed
    as you can)
    1. What is your name? Where are you from?
    2. What is your favorite food? Drink? Tell why it is your favorite.
    3. What food (i.e. vegetables, fruits, meat, grains) are a staple in
    your cultures diet? And why?
    4. What is a traditional family breakfast, lunch, and dinner consist of?
    And how is it prepared?
    5. Name two or more food delicacies served traditionally in your
    culture, and that other outside cultures would consider bizarre to eat.
    Explain.
    6. What are some of you fondest memories that you have about food
    growing up? Explain.

    You have the liberty of writing as much as you desire, in fact the more,
    the better. Thank you all again for taking the time out of your day to
    help out a struggling college student do well in her class. I will let
    you know how well I did on this paper. Thanks and wish me luck!

    Too many questions I can't answer. I'm an American. I don't have too many
    fond memories of food growing up. We had no traditional foods in our house.
    I don't eat anything bizarre. My "culture" doesn't have a diet. I would
    mostly eat Mexican food if I could. And no part of me is Mexican.

    So it makes me wonder why you even post to this group? Most people who
    post here have some love of food or knowledge of food, or curiousity
    in even trying something different...

    What part of that is spam? There are plenty of truly ignorant posts from
    foodbanter where your comments would actually make sense.

    It's one of the more intelligent and purposeful posts I've ever seen from
    foodbanter, although I admit if no one had replied I would not have seen it.
    However the questions are not difficult and I'm tempted to reply.

    The question in my mind is whether she realizes this is going to RFC, and
    whether she has enough presence of mind to read and reply here and not on
    foodbanter if she wants some help, since many of us do not allow foodbanter
    to archive our posts.

    If she responds to this message I'll help her out. If not, then not.

    The one thing she needs to do, however, is give people an off list email
    addy or interactive website to use when responding. People are less likely
    to hand out this information on a public group IMO.

    They've got about 5 words before I simply put the phone down and leave

    You may have seen him on the Ed Sullivan show; for a while, he was a very
    popular character and showed up all over the place. The character, playe by
    Bill Dana, was originated on the Steve Allen show in the late '50s. Steve
    Allen had a number of comedians who played various "man on the street"
    characters on his show; among them were Dana, Don Knotts, Tom Poston, Pat
    Harrington.

    IIRC, Jose Jimenez was the only character to become popular enough to appear
    on other TV shows of the day.

    Kinda like Raymond J. Johnson Jr. in the 1970's and early 80's. (Well,
    you can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay, or you can call me Johhny,
    or...)

    There is not much to think about. The OP was from foodbanter, those
    those typically involve a post from a new user who poses a dumb either
    announces that he/she is new to the forum and wants to say hi, or they
    ask a dumb question and are never heard from again.

    But "but you doesn't hasta call me Johnson!"

    I never understood that joke until I started reading usenet. There
