Or has my artistic well finally run dry?
The DumbestBlogger did remark:
Well, by looking at this ancient, prehistoric art we can soundly deduce that the ancient Phoenicians ate a variety of chicken and dumpling soup which had a sour aftertaste, and that they preferred to use size seven spoons. In addition, Phoenecian women would often bake stroudle for desert, which the boys loved.
My Well-Researched, Erudite Reply:
The Phoenicians traded all over the Mediterranean world, and hence did eat very well. Their diet lincluded olives, olive oil, Barbera wine, lamb, goat, cheese, garlic, honey, dried fish, soup, bread, watermelon, grapes, blueberries, and much, much more.
A huge variety of food from various cultures as a result of their trading ships.
As far as size seven spoons and Phoenician Women, well, Euripides’ late play The Phoenician Women is based on the same story as Aeschylus’ early tragedy, Seven Against Thebes. The play begins with a monologue by Jocasta, the queen of Thebes, in which she sums up the story of her son and husband, Oedipus, and the couple’s two sons, Eteocles and Polyneices, while eating chicken and dumpling soup followed by baked apple strudel desert.
