Then what chain of stores would be located within an English Hogi Yogi?
(An English girl in my Songwriting class comes in early, eating something Oriental)
ME: Hey, that smells pretty good, what is it?
ENGLISH GIRL: It’s something I got for lunch. I’ve never tried it before. It’s rice and chicken, but with some sort of sauce on it.
OTHER GIRL: Is it soy sauce?
ENGLISH GIRL: Not really. The best way to describe it is it’s kind of like soy sauce crossed with treacle.
(Stony silence. Everybody in the room is racking their brains trying to remember/figure out what treacle is or what it tastes like.)
ENGLISH GIRL: They gave it a weird name too: Terr-ee-yack-ee, I think.
EVERYONE ELSE: Ohhh!!!! Teriyaki!
ENGLISH GIRL: What, you’ve tried it too?
Seriously, though, I saw tons of oriental restaurants when I lived in Spain. Are most English unfamiliar with the concept of teriyaki sauce? Really makes you think.
Also, who puts treacle (which, it turns out, is molasses) on rice?
