My old mother never cared to listen to the lyrics of popular music; she knew little more that the title of the song. So for thirty years, she thought the song was praising the silence. When I forced the lyrics upon her, she was truly shocked.
Even funnier: Dutch singers Nick & Simon are doing a TV series about Simon and Garfunkel and performed one of their songs in a Jewish restaurant in New York, they were applauded, but when they asked if anyone knew Simon and Garfunkel nobody had ever heard of them!
(or they did not want to admit it )

It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
The Norwegian national dish, "fårikål", is a mutton and cabbage stew made with a lot of whole black pepper corns. When my parents served that to foreign guests, my dad always told with a straight face that those corns were the real delicacy. He used to make sure to tell it when mom made a trip to the kitchen - otherwise, she would have stopped the joke.
And then, some crazy proposals turn out to be great! In one Woody Allen movie (I don't remember which one), Allen is out at a pizza place with some young girl. The waiter comes with a pizza, looks at the couple from one side, then from another side, and finally goes up to them: "It must be you ordering a pizza with ..." and then lists about twenty diffrent fillings. When the waiter has left, Allen comments: "He forgot the coconut!"
This episode made me curious, so next time I made a pizza with a ground meat filling, I tried to fry the meat with shredded coconut before putting on the pizza. It was deicious! Since then, I have often used coconut on my pizza. When I tell people, the generally react with a greater shock than if you tell you use pineapple on your pizza!
(Some people from India give me an assuring nod: In their cusine, coconut milk is often used with mutton, so they accept that it can be good with beef as well, even if they are not familiar with beef, being Hindus.)
There was a discussion about a week and a half ago that sidetracked into triple cooked poatao chips, The Lounge[^]. This post, and also the YouTube video linked in the post, talks a lot about cooling potatoes in the fridge to get the moisture out.
He might have confused "." with "*" as per the order of the factors doesn't change the result...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
