Layah BS: the people who make the corned beef (67* d) RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef 15 Mar 05


I wasn't actually very frustrated, I was just attempting to be humorous. It's not that I didn't find any info that backs up my theory, it's that I didn't find any info at all. I found two conflicting stories of the origin of corned beef in the Irish diet, and no info at all about why Jews eat it. Even assuming it's the same thing, I still want to know where it comes from. Did the Jews get it from the Irish when they were both in America? It's the total lack of information that's the problem, not the lack of the right information.

McDonald's hamburgers and homemade hamburgers are both hamburgers and taste radically different. If you want to say they are the same thing, then by that standard Jewish and Irish corned beef are certainly the same thing as well. We're running into a problem of semantics here. I'm not claiming that one or the other of them is not corned beef, I'm claiming that they taste different. It appeared to me you are claiming they taste the same.
