    Ariel Sharon came to Washington for meetings with George W.
    and for a State dinner. Laura Bush decided to bring in a special
    Kosher chef and have a truly Jewish meal. At the dinner that
    night, the first course served is matzoh ball soup. George W.
    looks at this and after learning what it is called, he tells an aide
    that he can't eat such a gross and strange-looking brew. The aide
    says that Mr. Sharon will be insulted if he doesn't at least
    taste it.

    Not wanting to cause any trouble (after all, he ate sheep's
    eye in honor of Arab guests), George W. gingerly lowers his
    spoon into the bowl and retrieves a piece of matzoh ball and
    some broth. He hesitates, then swallows. A big grin appears on
    his face. He finds that he really likes it, and digs right in and
    finishes the whole bowl. "That was delicious," Bush
    says to Sharon. "Do Jews eat any other part of the matzoh, or just
    the balls?"

    When I lived in Colorado, in some of the fun "tourist" places and even some fancy restaurants, Rocky Mountain Oysters were on the menu. It was sort of your Colorado duty to get your unsuspecting out-of-state friends to try "our" oysters. They would scratch their heads wondering how oysters grew in the Rockies. Then the fun began ....
