Cucumber sandwiches for black people

More

The other thing that people should know about me is that I am a foodie. My Dad was nasty in the kitchen, and he imparted some of that on to me, sorta like how Galactus touched the Silver Surfer. Anyway, just out of curiosity I am gonna try this, maybe as soon as this weekend. Something about the combo of the mayo and pepperidge farm white bread seems sketchy, but what the hell. I used to think sushi was sketchy too...

UPDATE: LOL. Postbourgie on cucumber sandwiches: Ya'll lost me at the mayonnaise family.

I may have this wrong but there is a black wariness toward anything that runs--mac and cheese has to be baked within an inch of its life, chicken has to be fried extra-hard, steak needs to have not a drop of blood. That last part is changing some--I see more brothers going with medium every day. Of course we also gave the world chitterlings--shudder. Anyway black people, please correct me if I'm wrong on this one
