I mean, I grew up in poverty, but my family was not poor enough to serve this.
I’m blessed to have grown up in a bountiful land where one can go pick food from outdoors instead of a desert surrounded by twenty-foot-long crocodiles.
The wikihistory of Vegemite is that an entrepreneur wanted to make a food out of industrial by-products. And he did it.
God help me, I saw in the Wiki entry that they use it as a pastry filling. I suspect that the Australians do this to keep other people away from their doughnuts.
You know why Australian rules football is so vicious? The winners get a Vegemite sandwich. The losers get a year’s supply of Vegemite and a sixty-DVD Paul Hogan complete film set.
This is not unlike Steve Harvey’s reaction:
“Sounds like a pesticide. That about damn near what it tastes like.”
