The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

When Cultural Appropriation Goes Too Far …

I’ve written about cultural appropriation before.

I’ve talked about how there is an element of it that [I think] is good for humanity, if handled the right – and respectful – way.

This isn’t one of those times …

Yes … Nanchos and a Yorkshire pudding.

Let’s say that again.



What sort of sick and twisted individual thought that was OK?

Even the people behind the ‘premium heated, mixed nuts’ on Delta, aren’t that insane.

I should point out I saw this at a Toby Carvery in Slough, so I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised … but if I thought the French selling ‘hamburger ice cream’ was an act of war, then this should be all out nuclear attack.

And no, I didn’t buy it.

I didn’t even think about it.

Which means the one bit of good news in this sorry tale, is I might be maturing – at least where bad food is concerned.

When you say no to something, it must be bad.

My question is whether any nation or culture would mind their food was appropriated?

Comment by Bazza

That’s a bigger insult to culture than appropriation of their food.

Though calling a yorkshire pudding a yorkie, is pretty bad.

Comment by Pete

Yes … A Yorkshire pudding, merged with nachos and given the name of a 70’s chocolate bar. How much weird can one food have?

Comment by Rob

Bloody hell Baz that’s harsh.

I don’t mean the criticism about my food tastes, I mean saying no one would want to ‘own’ the heritage of that food. Especially the Yorkshire pudding.

Comment by Rob

I’m assuming that was in England. It seems my home country is copying my adopted country in ways that go beyond lying, populist leaders.

Comment by George

Yep … at a Toby Carvery, the backbone of Britain. I’m fully expecting PM BoJo to declare a national emergency.

Comment by Rob

Toby Carvery. I have not heard those words for a very long time. Now I fancy a roast.

Comment by George

I have to say that while I’ve had better, it was bloody good and insanely cheap. England keeps rewarding me for my return … ha.

The country’s never been happier.

Comment by andy@cynic

To fully judge your argument, I think we need to know what you actually ordered.

Comment by John

With Yorkshires that didn’t have nachos in them.

Comment by Rob
