One thing we Appalachains were never accused of is being smart wink

How'd J. Carvell say it?
"Pennsylvania is Philadelphia on one side, Pittsburgh on the other and Alabama in between."
One way i've seen him quoted.

On another note, we all love Faschnachts, but who holds to the tradition of taking out of the ashes? Esha puddel?

Courtesy of the local Amish, my wife stopped for some on the way home:

As I previously stated, those are actually one of many "Queen of Heaven" cakes Lugnut. They come in many forms. Those ones, I would guess, are associated with fertility rituals.

Jeremiah 7:18

The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke me to anger.

Why would God be so angry about all this?

Continuing in verse 31, They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.

Today, being Valentines day, will result in many abortions. Our more "civilized" version of child sacrifice.

I think you need to lighten up a bit amspoker.

I enjoyed my fastnachts yesterday. I didn't offer any cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven or burn any of my children in a fire. And if I get lucky today it will certainly not cause an abortion.

Sometimes a doughnut is just a doughnut.

My apologies. In the future I will use more discretion when sharing the history of religous doughnuts.
