I know how thousand island dressing came about: Once upon a time, they had the three mile catastrophe in Pennsylvania. Lo and behold, then they came up with thousand island dressing.

Such is the story of thousand island dressing.

I use it to annoy the grade school teachers. I figure if they can use condescending tones with me on the phone, I will annoy them with Comic Sans in 18pt.

I would rather it was the story of the Reuben sandwich. My boyfriend loves them so end up making them for him at least once a week and the backstory is kind of interesting. Link My advice is not to bother making them if you don't use homemade sauerkraut and thousand island. Also, MUST be served hot.

LOL.

Actually, Captain James Cook, the first European to navigate to Hawaii and New Zealand invented it.

Through his voyage, he visited many islands including the aforementioned Hawaii as well as smaller ones like Tahiti. In order to ward off scurvy, he forced his crew to eat salads. This was his regular crew.

He was aghast to find the natives of the islands to be mostly naked, save for a few members of the tribes who only wore ceremonial head dresses. As a missionary, he felt it necessary to bring "civilization" to the natives. One aspect of this was giving them western-style clothes.

On the first voyage (he made 3) he and his crew used extra canvas for sail-mending to fashion poncho-like dresses. On subsequent voyages he brought actual cloth and invented what is now known as the muu-muu.

They called this the Thousand Island Dressing.

The one true dressing, by which all other dressings must be judged.

Thousand Island = ketchup, mayo and pickle relish - it's origin is the grocery store.

/someones Grandma made it out of desperation.

Every little restaurant between Alexandria Bay and Clayton claims that they have the original Thousand Island Dressing recipe. It's like every jewelry store in Galway and Dublin claims to have invented that stupid claddagh ring. The answer is the same in both cases: Who the hell cares?

After reality shows and inane documentaries, what will we evolve from next? I'm hoping rehashed Brit sitcoms to US sitcoms and rehashed US sitcoms to movies.

Our entertainment future might be limited to only 26 English letters and 8 notes in an octave but I'm not so sure. I can see YouTube invited to every uprising, protest or political par-tay when their pricing comes down and possibly, fingers crossed, when there are YouTube (or independent of corporations) internet correspondents across the globe

I was in Clayton, NY this summer, which claims to be the originator of Thousand Island Dressing, so I am really getting a kick out of these replies...

Never used Worcestershire. Might give it a dash or two.

I've been trying to remember for years what comedian told this joke, but he was wondering why there was French dressing, Russian, Italian, etc., but no Irish dressing. He said there was probably an international conference on salad dressing, but the Irish delegate was hung over and didn't make it to the meeting. The punchline became a running gag in my family: "OK, if that Irish guy isn't here in 15 minutes, we're having Italian and Creamy Italian!"

Mmmm, Russian dressing. (Okay, Ukrainian... think USSR).
 
2011-09-03 07:11:54 PM
I couldn't get interested in reubens while they were made with that retarded thousand island dressing.

Then I tried one with actual russian dressing. Wow. Like night and day.

I was briefly confused why more sandwiches didn't feature russian dressing. Then I remembered there are too many ancient white guys who think that we're still fighting communism and can't have anything named "russian" in the country. Quick! Name it after a popular white guy place around New York!

There obviously must be too much grant money floating around out there.

Too many idle filmmakers, too.

Perfect solution: I say we redirect some of the grant money into buying tar, asphalt, gravel and steamrollers, then put a shovel in the hand of every ironic-t-shirted, cargo-panted, ballcap-wearing aspiring filmmaker out there and fix America's deteriorating roadways and bridges rather than fund another twee, pointless little vanity project like the history of salad dressing.

Who's with me?
