The first I heard of durian I *think* was a friend of mine writing a
filksong "who let the durian into the spaceship?" ... later someone else
hearing the same commented that they understood now, at some high end place
they'd sen a little sign on the window "durian prepared elsewhere". You
wouldn't expect window signs on a class establishment, but it was a sign of
high class indedd, not only they had the dish, but you should be guaranteed
not to suffer any of its prep. If it had been prepared onsite I suppose
it'd have a hazmat mark...

many fine and enjoyable foods which would easily make the gentlebeings of
its culture squirm and gain nightmares if they consider how these things
