I am so pleased! The suspense is finally over. I was able to try Marmite
over the weekend and even own a little jar of that incredible stuff.
Think about what jellied mules’ hooves might taste like on crackers and you
have a pretty good idea of what this unusual food (?) item has to offer.
If you stop by, you are welcome to sample it. I’ll have plenty of root beer
standing by to help you recover.
And, for the Topic Police, I rode my unicycle today. It was about 10
degrees F. here. I had so many layers on I would have bounced if I’d fallen
off. I didn’t fall off, but I think I was riding sideways the whole time.
That happens sometimes.
Even your own sh*t spread over bread would taste better !
Just the smell of it makes your eyes tear and sends your nose and stomach
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !
P.S. All the rootbeer produced to date wouldn’t flush your system out fast

So, it looks like the differences between the two sides of the Atlantic all boils down to the fact that you (USA) would try to get rid of the taste of Marmite with something as hideous as root beer and we (UK) would get rid of the taste of root beer with Marmite.
I think we should try to discover some common ground here. Hands up who hates the taste of witchety grubs (picking on the Aussies is soooo easy )

Hands up who has actually eaten fresh witchetty grubs… they are quite
tasty if you lightly pan fry them. I wonder what they would taste like
spread with Vegemite?
Sigh, when it comes to authentic national cuisine us Aussies are not as
fortunate as some others. Britain has tasteless sausages piled on top of
mashed potato, the USA has McDonalds and breakfast cereals with sugar coated
marshmallow bits, while we are stuck with witchetty grubs and wallaby tail.
BTW for those Americans, Australia is not a small island off the coast of
and for the English, thanks for sending us convicts away to paradise, very
kind of you.

It’s lovely spread on toast with tomato sliced ontop… and it’s veggie
and full of vitamins!
Surely that’s enough to make it truly the food of unicyclists!
I’ve been thinking about the foods/beverages preferred by most unicyclists.
It is not Marmite. Unfortunately, it is also not Twinkies. Nor is it root
beer, but it should be.
I will not vote for sushi.
While artichoke pizza is quite tasty, I don’t think that will win enough
I don’t even want to know what those grubs are. I haven’t had poi.
Forget Vegemite. Took me months to get my hands on Marmite and I refuse to
scour every store in North America looking for Vegemite. What if it tastes
like Marmite? (It took several hours and an entire box of Junior Mints to
recover from a miniscule Marmite sample.)
So, common ground. Well, apple pie is too American. How about something
sorta healthy, distinctive, yet easy to eat while riding one-footed
backwards down Baldwin Street?
I think I will vote for either kiwifruit or a hot fudge sundae.
