A little known fact is that the pastry known as the Croissant arose from the victory of the West over Islamic armies in Austria.



The crescent shape is in homage to the Islamic crescent moon and eating it symbolizes devouring the enemy.

So eat a croissant today to symbolize the inevitable defeat by the Anglo-Americans over this despicable terrorist enemy.

Hmmm, croissants are also very representative of France. They're one of the trademark breakfasts over there.

So I should be all excited to eat flaky pastry because one group of religious fanatics I don't care for defeated another group of religious fanatics I don't care for centuries ago?

Yay...

Yes, yes. Let's celebrate white-Americans defeat over the brown terrorists. After that, the "Anglo-Americans" can get rid of all of those pesky "Non-Anglos Americans". A world safe for white America! Way to go Ed! Stormfront much?

just a note, we're not talking about fanatics vs fanatics here. The islamic armies of the turk empire had been for generations extending into europe, conquering large swaths of it. Thats why there are muslims in the balkans. The onslaught was eventually stopped at Vienna, thats how far the occupation had gotten.

And, much earlier and on the opposite side, the islamic kingdom in north africa had invaded and conquered all of spain, and was smashing its way into france and the rest of europe (not to mention the med. islands), only to be stopped by The Hammer.

The crosses in Hot Cross Buns were to ward off evil spirits that would keep the dough from rising

For those who don't have a French bakery nearby, here's the recipe for victory:



Blend 2 packets active dry yeast with 1 cup lukewarm milk. Put 4 1/2 cups sifted flour into a mixing bowl and add 1/3 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour the mixture of milk and yeast into the center. Mix quickly with the fingertips, and as soon as the liquid is completely absorbed by the flour, cover the dough with a cloth and leave it to stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the room temperature.

Roll out the dough into an oblong and dot with butter. Fold into three and repeat rolling, dotting with butter, and folding twice more using a generous 1 cup of softened butter. Allow the dough to stand for 30 minutes.

Then roll it out to an oblong about 18 in. by 6 in. and cut into triangles. Roll up the triangles, starting at the base and working towards the top. Place the croissants on a baking sheet, bending them into crescents. Allow them to rise further in a draught-free place for 15 - 45 minutes, depending on the room temperature. Brush with beaten egg yolk and bake in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.

And European Christians did much the same in the Middle East during the Crusades. BFD. Quite old news :shk:

It's nothing I'm going to get upset about, any more than I feel a sense of personal indignation over the sack of Carthage, or hold grudges over the Peloponnesian war.

To add to Djohnsto77's fun facts:

They taste good with chocolate.

Its true the Turks gave Napolean a welcoming basket full of croissants (or as the turks called them cresents) But what Napolean didnt know is the Turks gave it to him as a gag gift.

Its just like how the mexicans tricked all of us americans. They gave us mexican food when we conquered most of sothwestern america. But what we didnt know was all mexican food is the same! Its all just a tortilla, cheese, meat and a vegetable.

And Cuba gave us cigars knowing that it would give us cancer.
And Chinese gave us chinese food so we have to eat more an hour later.
And the British gave us ridiculas amounts of tea and scones so we'd have to watch their dry humour on public television.
And French gave us cheese and wine so we'd have to pay ridiculas amounts of money on aniversarys, weddings and boat christenings.
