Classic American Cuisine

I was in my office today when a memory hit me and just cracked me up. In my high school geography class, we had to give a cultural presentation and bring food and information about where are ancestors were from. So, some of my friends brought Armenian food, some German. There were dishes from China and from Thailand. Do you want to know what I took??

Snickers and Doritos. I am not even lying. I am not really sure at this point what my explanation was, but I am thinking it had something to do with the idea that I am not really 100% sure where my ancestors are from, so I made the case that my family has been in America for many generations. And what did the pilgrims share with the Native Americans? Snickers and Doritos, of course.

No wonder I wasn't valedictorian.

But you were VERY popular and that's why. Who wants Armenian food when you can have snickers and doritos. Add in some Pepsi and an afternoon at the NASCAR and you have your true heritage...poor Texan!!
