Since moving to Scotland I have learnt they have a whole new set of words for common insects - see if you can work out their more common names:

Poutine do you guys know what poutine is?... Maybe a few people from Vermont? ;P


I tried some poutine up in Derby, Vermont, a town about 3 miles from the Canadian border.

Here's my one word review: "Don't". :D

That is ONE nasty dish, from just about all perspectives. It is visually ugly, unbelieveably unhealthy for you, tastes disgusting, and is made from cheap ingredients.

The one redeeming benefit of poutine, however, is the caloric value. One steaming bowlful is about 60000 calories, or about enough energy to keep Ottawa's 412 public ice hockey rinks lit all night for three nights.;)

Back to the cheap ingredients. Poutine is a "dish" ( here, I use the culinary term in the loosest possible sense) made of French Fries ( no longer "Freedom Fries", BTW, but that is another story) cruelly smothered with a hypergluittonous grey gravy, with the special addition of - get this - cheese curds.

As most of us have only heard of cheese curds, and generally only in reference to Little Miss Muffet, allow me to introduce them to you. They are irregularly-shaped, tannish-gray, blobs of stringy, rubbery, milk-sour revulsion-inducing dairy-squid.

After your first bite of poutine, if you are like me, you will be struggling to maintain your composure. Because your brain is being assaulted on two different fronts simultaneously.

The first front, of course, is the way the stuff tastes, and, dare I say it, actually feels, in your mouth. The combination of greasy fries, even greasier gravy against the cardboard dryness and sour milk stylings of the curd is a revelation in contrasts. Only, in a bad way.

The second front is even more chilling. And that is the thought process that starts with, "What is this cheese curd stuff, anyways?"

The answer cometh swiftly: "It's revolting, is what it is. Some sort of revolting Canadian dairy right-of-passage bravery test."

Then you ask, you must ask yourself: "Where in the world would you even BUY this stuff, (let alone even want to USE it in a dish - just leave that part out of the argument for now) - but where would you buy this stuff???"

"Is it rare? Could there possibly be a demand for something like this?"

"Is this whole thing a joke - they only give the cheesecurd "poutine" to Americans and save the fabulously expensive Velveeta "real Poutine" for true Canadians?"

"Does it matter? Either I just paid money for a bowl of something made with a disgusting ingredient never seen before, and I OVERPAID, because surely cheesecurd is given away for free by the frightened Canadian dairy industry.

"Or worse, - the cheese curd is the MOST expensive ingredient of the dish! So, I am eating a disgusting bowl of unhealthy, hideously-ugly ingredients made by people who are demonstrably morons - they just paid good money - and lots of it - for cheese curds, instead of using actual CHEESE, which looks good, tastes good, and is cheaper than dirt up here in dairy country!"

And in the mere few seconds these thoughts have consumed your consciousness, it is already too late. Your first mouthful of poutine has crossed the transom to your esophagus and there is no turning back the clock now, my friend.

Forevermore, you will be, in some small way, Canadian.

My dictionary has it under triskaidekaphobia but I am sure it's the same thing. What a fascinating phobia!

How about Xanthophobia?

I have the opposite of that which I'd guess would be called Xanthaphilia?
