I had lunch today at a terrific Turkish restaurant in Sunnyside, NY. On the menu was Aborigines in Olive Oil.” At first I thought perhaps they had discovered Hufu, but no, it was simply aubergines. Even as I type that word on my computer, the spell checker helpfully suggests aborigines” …

The same explanation cannot, however, explain the Hitlers Sundae” on the menu at Rasranjan’s in Ahemedabad. On the other hand, this just might. Gujarat is a weird place!

UPDATE: Arnold Zwicky investigates further into the Aborigines/aubergine issue and finds it to be something more than a computer error.
