Amidst all this PC/religion/namecalling garbage a new kind of debate has aroused itself.
The religious/regional/cultural food debate.
I will admit that part of the reason I love living around a bunch of different denominations of Christians is the fish fry. Fish fries are proof that God loves us no matter what church we do or don’t go to and wants us to be happy, full of greasy fish, tartar sauce and cheap buns.
The other day I got this comment:

Lesson learned. (And she was kidding, lighten up people.)
The entire United States is unknowingly engaged in culinary battle. Take the KC/St. Louis BBQ battle. Or the Chicago/New York pizza battle. Utah is legendary for fry sauce (I MISS YOU FRY SAUCE) and Indiana boasts tenderloin as big as your head.

We have entire Mormon Cookbooks and entire restaurants dedicated to the fine art of cooking with cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. WE PERFECTED THE JELL-O SALAD and also spawned Jell-O products Jell-O didn’t even know Jell-O could be used for.
Some guy out there with a lot of guns thinks he can claim Green Jell-O in the name of the Lutherans.
As if the threat of a lot of guns is going to scare me away from the truth.
Mormons are the only reason green Jell-O is still in production.
In. the. wooooorld.
I really didn’t want it to come to this. But Mr. Gunfighter was adamant that he (exact words)
Allow me to show you a pin from the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Where’s YOUR green Jell-O pin GUNFIGHTER?
Watch out dude, because I think you just got your Jellass handed to you with delicious pieces of pineapple and a dollop of Cool Whip by a Mormon, the true lovers and proper owners of the Green Jell-O stereotype.
