(Based on "What are Little Girls made of")


What is an Englishman made of?
Roast beef and jam tart,
And a pint of good Clar't,
And that's what an Englishman's made of.

What is a Frenchman, pray, made of?
Horse steak, and frog fritter,
And absinthe so bitter,
And that's what a Frenchman is made of.

Therefore, my dears, you must be kind to a Frenchman, and give him some of your nice dinner, whenever you can, and teach him better. Wipe your mouths, you little pigs do.

I think I will pass on the horse steak, but what absinthe goes well with frog fritter? :tongue:

There's nothing wrong with a little cheval. :devil: I can't think of many fried dishes I'd be excited to pair with absinthe.

Except oysters, which, in any form, pair wonderfully with said.

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

share your dinner? Are they joking? Dinner and supper are amazing in the land of deux cent quarante-six variétés de fromage.

Sorta related, we (my firm) just bought the entire run of Punch. Wonderful publication, :)

I should run some searches for (even) earlier absinthe references in it.
