What about the sausage?

Except when pregnant, my wife leads a mostly vegetarian existence and, I suspect, only eats meat as a concession my carnivorous urges. I can't help it - Eastern Europe is not known for its traditions of vegetarianism. When we saw this scene from "Everything is Illuminated" we both were rolling on the floor laughing, since this is almost exactly how my family reacted to my wife's food preferences when they first met.

Quote from a Hindu friend: "If you live in America, you cannot be happy if you don't eat steak".

To his mother's disgust, had she found out, he put that belief into practise.

And then there's that scene from 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'...

"What do you MEAN you don't...eat...meat?!!!?"

"I don't eat meat."

"Okay. I fix you some lamb."
