  1. I was wondering what the foul mean and then saw at the bottom of the picture..Strange world with different language meaning altogether.

  2. The “foul” always throws me – it certainly lives up to it’s name as it is a disgusting dish! I had thought that they were trying to say “fowl” for any kind of chicken dish but it seems not! The language issue crops up time and again, much to my amusement.
