        People gave up good food for your right to vote, and you waste it.

        So sad.

                        dope.

                        ok, meatballs will have to cover gelfite (sp ?) fish to for fuck's sake.

                          But I'd also like to fish tacos to win, so I may hear more about your excursions to TPC as well as their monkfish liver tacos, and would uni count under fish ????

                            Ipse - perhaps we should call it Seafood Tacos?

                              Wow, this is a tough choice. Tacos made with guefilte* fish meatballs? Shoot, have to really think about it. Got one more day to vote...

                              *Is there a reason--beyond RicRios's spelling in the nom thread--why we're using the Spanish(?) spelling of gefilte fish. Just wanted to make sure I'm not missing some variation on traditional gefilte fish out there.

                                Should've spelled it the one and only correct way:

                                  Hope my post didn't come off as trying to correct the spelling. I was genuinely curious if there was a difference between gefilte fish and guefilte fish as dishes, rather than as just the English and Spanish translations of the Hebrew word.

                                    I thought it was the German or Yiddish spelling but that would be gefu(umlaut)llte which would make it "gefuellte" for non umlaut keyboards.

                                    The easy explanation is: damn autocorrect!

                                      The Google results for gefuellte are mostly German but for guefilte are mostly Spanish.

                                      It's just Ric being Ric.

                                      Leave the dude alone ... Wouldn't want him yelling at all of us in Yiddish.
