Roving Tribe of Marrauders in Eastern Europe

From 1476-1482 the Boreskion (Bore-Ski-Ahn) ruled Eastern Europe. This band of marauders were known for their brute force, a penchant for the color pink and a bump that each of them had on the back of their heads about 4 inches above their necks. Here is an artist's rendering:The Boreskion raped, pillaged and plundered as much as they could. Eventually, Ghengis Khan killed all of them, but he was too late. They had impregnated many women. Their descendents can be identified by the bump on the back of their heads.In an effort to shame the descendants of the Boreskion, the color pink was effeminized. To this day, only the bravest men wear the color pink, all others find it effeminate.

In the Middle Ages, there were no eating utensils. Some time during the Renaissance people began using eating utensils as a symbol of their wealth and class. The more money people had, the more pieces of silverware they would use in a given meal. Today, this tradition continues; the more formal the meal, the more utensils it incorporates.


For a dish to technically be categorized as salad, it must incorporate at least one cut up fruit or vegetable. Salad, originally called salada originally consisted of cut up tea leaves mixed with tomatoes. Because tea leaves were rather expensive, lettuce was eventually substituted.
