Recipe for Satire:
Heathen Fundamentalist BS Cookies
© 2003 by Ingeborg S. Nordén
I originally saw a Christian-themed version of the "recipe" below on a support list for former Christian fundamentalists. Thank you, Jeff Reid, for inspiring me to try my hand at a Heathen parody: as often as I've battled fundy fanatics in my own religion lately, this seemed like the right thing to do.
Chocolate Chip Fundamentalist BS Cookies
(Chef Edward A. Thumper's traditional Nordic recipe)
Preheat flaming Asatru debate forum to 3500 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together with reason. Using common sense, mix the liquid ingredients separately, making sure to beat them together the way our ancestors must have done--never mind that half of my family's cookbook is missing, and the other half was transcribed by people who never cooked from scratch. Now mix all of the ingredients together rationally. Drop the batter with a $50 ritual spoon3 onto a true-to-lore flat Earth cooking disc4 and burn them halfway to a crisp with name-calling and ad-hominem attacks, for 10-12 minutes. Remove them from the flaming debate forum (you may need moderator privileges to handle this step safely), cool them, and enjoy!
These cookies go great with Back-to-the-Land Blood Sacrificed Animal Stew, or a Valhalla Value Meal with a 44-ounce hand-carved horn of home-brewed mead. Hail the Ćsir!
More notes from Chef Thumper:
sure the walnuts grew somewhere in Northern Europe; any substitution will ruin
the flavor. (back to
2. What do you mean, you don't brew your own mead...Oh,
you're allergic to alcohol? Don't blame me if the gods won't accept your
results--bad Heathen! (back to
3. Be sure your
spoon is carved from ash wood gathered with the right incantations and
sacrifices...and that the handle is engraved with a perfectly accurate
blood-stained runic motto in Old Norse. If it doesn't, you've done everything wrong and betrayed our ancestors by ignoring this
recipe. (back to
4. I recommend Vinland Pride® brand hand-forged, historically accurate non-stainless steel cookware. (back to recipe)
