Post #3593 – 20131218

Yesterday, my wife discovered a copy of the "Boston Cooking School Cookbook" that was published sometime in the early 20th century. She began leafing through the book and had read several recipes when she suddenly asked me, "What's an alligator pear?" "Oh, " I said, "that's an avocado." "How did you know that?" "It's in Pinkwater – the benefits of a liberal education, you know."

Daniel replies:

Some day I hope to be privileged to sample a Nile crocodile pear, or maybe a Komodo dragon pear, or even a gila monster pear.
