We were having a enlightened discussion about the origins of kielbasa. Some were saying it was Rusyn because it had to have came from Sub-Carpathia. But the Ukrainians said that Sub-Carpathia is in Ukraine therefore Kielbasa had to be noted as being originally from Ukraine. The Polish guy said, "no, no, no! Kielbasa was invented in Warsaw and taken to the Carpathian mountains by Jesuits in the 1600's therefore kielbasa is Polish in origin.
I'm confused, what do you all think?
Is kielbasa Polish, Ukrainian, or Rusyn?

How about all three? I cannot believe that sausage did not exist before 1600.
I am sure there is a lot of cross-cultural borrowing in Eastern Europe.
Who invented cabbage rolls? Borscht? How can any of this be proved?

Who cares anyway?

Jusy enjoy the food.

Actually, since Carpatho Russia, Ukraine and Poland all belong to Russia, kielbasa is actually Russian!

I thought Sts. Cyrill and Methodius and their disciples introduced kolbassy (kovbassi, kielbassy, I forget the Hungarian name, etc.) to Greater Moravia, So. Poland, and Pannoia in c.863 A.D., and later brought it to Kyiv in c. 988 A.D. Soon after, the Germanic Holy Roman Emperor denounced this act, and forced these Slavs to eat "Bratwurst" instead. This was only cleared up after the Pope recalled Cyrill and Methodius to Rome to straighten out this culinary heresy! biggrin

It's Welsh in origin and was known as Cyllbasedd. It was carried to Eastern Europe by two brothers, Cyryl and Mawrthyd.

You have to experience homemade or at least made at a specialty shop kielbasa to really experience it. The stuff you buy at the supermarket doesn't compare to home made nor the two or three varieties they have at the Eastern European Store near here...
But to be fair the Russian... err.. Eastern European shop sells Carpathian Kielbasa, let me think how they write it, Karpatskya I think... not karpatska though wink
homemade beats all though.
That supermarket stuff is greasy.

None of the above. I was always taught that kielbasa was a bad Italian sausage recipe that was sold cheaply to the Slavs in Krakow. You know those Florentine merchants could not pass up an opportunity to make a quick bit of change on an otherwise useless recipe. I understand the British came in second place on the bidding for the recipe. biggrin

I have to say I wonder how well it would do in certain areas of Scotland - bearing in mind that the Italians opened the Fish and Chip shops that sell deep fried Mars Bars.

We have plenty of Poles here - I wonder how they would look on deep fried Kielbasa smile

Dear Rusyns,

Kielbassa was actually a pagan food that was offered to honour the wild boar-god of the forests in pre-Christian times among the East Slavs.

Historically and culturally, the Slavs were deathly afraid of the forests. It was in the forest that all sorts of evil existed and the pagan Slavs felt the need to placate embodiments of such evil, such as the dangerous wild boar, with rites and sacrifices. Enter - kielbassa which when offered to the wild boar god was then consumed as a formm of "communion."

The form of kielbassa used in such rites persisted and the Orthodox Patriarchs were all too painfully aware of its pagan roots. They wrote several times to the Kozaks (now what were they - Ukrainian, Rusyn or Polish?)to ask them to refrain from bringing kielbassa for the Church blessing of Easter foods etc.

Of course, the Kozaks never obeyed such commands . . . Some pagan traditions were definitely worth keeping (and which true Slav could disagree with them?). If anything, this made the Kozaks even more "pro-kielbassa."

So the kielbassa tradition is basically that of Rus' and the Rusyny descended from the Eastern Slavs. The material culture is largely shared with Poland and south eastern Poland in particular (we do know that Poland received Christianity from the East and only later became RC). And the Poles took much from the Rusyn-Ukrainian tradition. Just ask any Pole to say the word "two" in Polish . . .

But the Poles have improved on the Rusyn kielbassa (as we always feared they would . . .).

They have mastered the tradition of frying kielbassa on an open pan by slicing a piece lengthwise and putting the two pieces down and over - rather than the primitive Rusyn way of slicing kielbassa in many pieces that only dries them out by the time they are ready to be served.

In Williamsville, NY there is a pancake house, run by a wonderful Polish family, that prepares kielbassa with pancakes that tastes like nobody's business!

One more reason to salute our Kozak heritage!

Alex

What about "Hurka"? The Magyar-Ruszins in my town used to make and sell "Hurdka". I guess it is the same as Kishka.

Ung,

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Yes, Hurka is also a Hungarian type of sausage. It is rather different than kolbász. It is a rice & liver sausage, which at first may not sound too great, but when cooked, the taste is absolutely wonderful.

This brings back delightful memories. I almost hate to say it, but it tastes even better with a little ketchup on it.

There are quite a few varieties of this "Eastern European Sausage" and the flavors vary considerably.

I wonder if they are ever served with "Mediterranean Salad".

In reality there is a rich assortment of sausage types, recipes, meats, etc. all throughout Eastern Europe.

Just in Ukraine you can go from the Krakovska or Wieska-style ham kovbasa of the Premyshyl' and L'viv areas, down to the Bukovinska and other mountain styles (probably my favorites), and many others such as Donetskiy, usually beef and something like a salami.

Mr Orthodox Pyrohy, of course I know what pyrohy are! It was a linguistic joke, because I eat pierogi (being of Polish descent) and galumpki = halupki, of course.

Fr. Serge, I burn the darn things every time. The polish parish I grew up in is sooo good at frying bleeni that the line is usually the biggest at the annual picnic -- the wait can be over an hour long!

I've finally mastered my grandmother's dill pickle recipe... mmmmm!

Well the first post does speak of the sausage being introduced into the Trans-Carpathian region in the 1600's by Jesuits. Most likely these were Italian Jesuits who studied in Rome. I think we maybe getting close to the answer. Can we crack the "Kielbasa Code?"

We officially inducted you into the Rusyn nation remember?

Father Serge, Matzo meal is readily available in most grocery stores around here. Now I may have to make blini. But if Domilsean comes I'll have to make him pierogies.

If you'd all like to come to Hollidaysburg, PA, I'll see if I can rent the park in town and we'll have the first annual Kielbassa competition and picnic sometime this summer. Just be sure to bring along tons of your own favorite and some potato salad and some . . .

BTW, there used to be a meat market in Portage that made their own homemade and it was out of this world.

BOB biggrin


SS. Peter and Paul ACROD Church in Windber make some great "domashi" Kolbassi and serve it at their food festival every August. Duzhe fajno indeed!

Ah, keep the Hunky Pravoslavny full of Kolbassi, and they won't care about the terms of the c.1596 and c.1646 Unions. Yes, that is an intriguing hypothesis, indeed!

That's right, subjugation of the faith through a full stomach! And let's not forget that Frankish German sauerkraut that was foisted upon us to make the filioque more palatable. biggrin

Also, let's not forget the Transylvanian connection in all this. The abundant use of garlic in kielbasi was to keep blood-thirsty vampires away. Without the use of garlic, our people were very sleep deprived because they always thought that these vampires were going to get them during the night.

It is no accident that this old country "cupola"


is not an onion, but a garlic bulb.

This conspiracy may actually be getting tastier.

We are again getting closer to the "conspiracy".

The original spelling is K-O-L' - basi. "Kol" is one of the Slavic gods of antiquity. When Cyril and Methodius came to our lands, they asked the natives what that long sausage-like food they were eating. They quickly responded, "KOL'basi" at which the two saintly brothers changed the name so it was not afflilated with paganism any longer. So "kielbasy" became the new name.

Pockets of "Kol'basy" still exist throughout the Slavic world.

OK, I'll bring a barrel of pickles. But I'm warning you, they are extremely addictive and go only too well with kielbasa. If we have enough time, I'll also bring a big old tub of homemade fermented sauerkraut (takes a few weeks to brew).

my mouth is watering.

As for the pierogies... I got off school one day in 1994 to go to the Schuylkill Mass to represent my high school (Nativity BVM) in a Mrs. T's Pierogies eating contest. While the rest of the fools were swallowing them whole (the winner ate 27 in 3 minutes), I took the time to enjoy them -- they were perfectly cooked and covered in butter and onions! Why chug perfectly good pierogies?

Another fun anecdote -- my family bases receptions on who makes the best halupki. Honest to God. For my brother's wedding, the Ukrainians had the best halupki-in-bulk deal. For my grandfather's after-funeral dinner, the Ruthenians had the best deal. It's kind of weird, but we love the stuff.

I'm ready for the picnic NOW!

Plus we'll need fresh rye bread, unsalted butter and young garlic thinly sliced. Yep that'll cure what ever ails you. I'll get get my MIL working on the varenyky -melt-in-your-mouth dough. And fried salt pork bits with onions much better than bacon bits. Except on Fasting days .....

Has anyone heard of the personal prelature of Opus Victus? Much isn't found on the internet and even at that their website are written in code, like John Nash type code, no like DaVinci Code type code.
There has been a long rumor this group has been funding the subversion of Byzantine rite tradition in favor of Latin rite tradition for years by way of food subversion. They also are reported to have had a heavy hand in the reformation of the Latin rite in the 1950's and 60's by introducing jarred spaghetti sauces to achieve their goals. They meet in the personal prelature's kitchens to devise recipes to subvert rites that may be looked upon as possibly questioning the Holy See, and coming up with food that will make those peoples lethargic and subservient.
Often these changes were blamed on the FreeMasons however through years of code cracking signs are pointing to this highly secret group, Opus Victus.



Tradition has it that Cardinal Andrea D'Victussi started this group in ultimate secrecy in 1604 A.D. Members entered the Jesuits and studied in Rome. The group and Cardinal D'Victussi set their sights on the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Europe. Sending their secret members who were now Jesuit missionaries they sought to change and latinize the Slavs in Eastern Europe. As we can see evidence of this has been mounting in this thread.

My dear Eastern European friends,

Although I grew up in the 'melting pot' of the world--New York City--every area/neighborhood (almost the size of towns, as New York's boroughs are huge) had/has its own distinctive ethnic mix...so my area was mostly Italian, Norwegian, and some Greek, and the Eastern European/Polish neighborhoods were so far away in distance, that I never even drove through them or knew anyone there...Therefore, I never saw or even heard of a 'pierogie'! shocked

I had more partaking and knowledge of Jewish foods (knish, pastrami, etc.) than Eastern European...

Admittedly, I never knew the delight of Pierogies until the Great Fast this year!! In my supermarket, there is a 'gourmet' fresh pasta and other goods section, and there is a variety of 'freshly' made 'gourmet' pierogies there. cool

They are a little expensive, but worth the fresh factor, since I don't have a granny that can make them for me!

Since I was missing my beloved stuffed pastas because of the Great Fast, (like tortellini, ravioli, etc...I am obsessed w/pasta--my hubbie says that he cannot believe that I am not Italian, but then again, some of the areas which my ancestors came from were occupied at one time by the Genoese for centuries!), so imagine how thrilled I was to discover pierogies--all the yum factor of stuffed pasta, but NO dairy (atleast that I know of, so please don't ruin it for me if there is any in the dough, because ignorance can be bliss when it comes to the loooooooong Lenten fast).

I like the cabbage and potato filling and the spinach and potato filling. I saute them in a good quality extra virgin olive oil until they are crispy and season them w/salt and pepper. Sometimes I eat them on a plate of sauteed onions like you guys do...It is great Fasting (and otherwise ofcourse) fare! smile

You can usually get pyrohy off some of the Orthodox churches in the area that are quite good. Of course you have Mrs. T's. Then the cheap grocery store sells these pyrohy from Canada that are actually ok.

Hey now. Mrs. T's a great local company. They've introduced pierogie to the world.

And I'm in for the picnic, now that the beer's been added.

But maybe someone else should get the kielbasa, because I don't have a good butcher.

I agree. As a Pole I am not going to fight for the Polish origin of kielbasa. I am going to devour it, fried with onion is the best.
See home-made or country sausage (home-made in Poland means traditional):

Bob, nope! Sounds good. Maybe I'll even run over to the Russian store if I get a chance and bring some of the thin slicked capratho kielbasa which doesn't need cooked (Marc will point out the Pittsburgh regional dialect in that sentence).

I'll have to check into that. By this time most of the pavilions have been reserved for rental for the summer. I'll see if I can reach someone who does the scheduling. We do need to take this seriously, though, and ask how many of the board's members are interested.

Then it's a matter of getting organized: menu, misc like charcoal, etc. Are we having a "throwdown" where people bring different kinds and brands so we can see who's got the best kielbassa? BTW, I have some neighbors who would volunteer to serve as judges. grin

I'm a purist. I absolutely insist on charcoal for grilling. Gas grills are for sissies smile

However, I'm going to need a two or three month lead time to make the beer . . . much longer if you want a lager rather than ale.

The question has been tossed around. Is there serious interest out there for a kielbassa throwdown picnic in Central PA this summer?

If I can get a spot at my hometown park where there is a kiddie park and places for softball, who and how many would come?

What would folks like for a menu? If we're to have a "throwdown," how many kinds of kielbassa will there be and who will be bringing some of it? Picnic food or a mixture with ethnic goodies?

Looking for some serious answers.

We may as well be upfront about this issue Bob!

-The legal age to consume alcohol in the U.S.A. is 21.
-To those under 21 years of age coming to this picnic you will be expected to obey the drinking age law. If you aren't 21 or older and can't prove it then your hand better not be near the beer cooler or a bottle of wine or vodka, etc...
-Not only will the over 21 year old people at the picnic take this law seriously the Pennsylvania State Police will....... their police station is directly across the street from this park. The local city police also frequently patrol this park as well.
Please if you attend the picnic and are underage follow the law and do not touch the alcohol, Pennsylvania has a zero tolerance blood alcohol count limit for those under 21 years of age. None of us want to lose jobs, businesses and numerous other rights because of someone underage drinking. It is a serious issue and frankly I wouldn't mind this picnic being alcohol free.
The most important thing is to have a gathering of people, eat some good food, live and laugh a little and have fun.

Please schedule it sometime time after July 1st, as I may being traveling to Staryj Kraju in June. Matt, Theophan, will it be in Blair County? I haven't been "up there" for several years since my college days at Penn State-Altoona. Is the small Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church still open in Altoona? I'll make sure I'm visiting Windber that weekend.

Is the small Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church still open in Altoona?


Can't tell you for sure. Until recently they had Liturgy on Saturday evenings because the priest lived in Barnesboro, now Northern Cambria and the drive is about 40+ miles one way.

Might have to be in August at this point due to the park's calendar.

I used to go to both churches when Father Gutherie was pastor. St. Mary Church (Altoona) had a Saturday evening liturgy, while Barnesboro had their liturgy on Sunday morning. I hear that Fr. Paul is still serving parishes in Eastern PA. I need to visit him sometime, he's a awesome priest!

Your attendance at this event will be mandatory. Only doctor's excuses and or absence for research in debunking the Kielbasa Code will be accepted.

I've heard tell of a butcher shop so renowned, it has been enshrined in song -- Christmas song, no less.

The location of this particular shrine to tubular meat has been described as "north of the mountain". And I've also heard that when ordering sliced meats, one's options are limited to "tick" and "tin".

So, I was prompted to do a bit of research, and discovered that this shop is not only famous for it's kielbasa, but OWNS the kielbasa URL:

http://www.kielbasy.net/

Kowalonek's Kielbasy Shop of Shenandoah, PA. I believe, my friends, that Kowalonek's is the Rosslyn Chapel of the kielbasa world.

NB: You can hear the songs on the website, too!

Oh wow... they even have KIELBASY DIP!

I can't look at their website any more or I'm afraid I'll be smitten with the call of the Kielbasa Code and quit my job, forsake my family, and immediately drive to Shenandoah 462 and spend all of my money on pork.

Domilsean,

Shenandoah and Centraila are pretty close. I wonder if the ongoing mine fire in Centrailia has something to do with the Kielbasa Code and the close proximity to the Kowalonek's shop?
I think we are getting close.
Pick me up on the way, we'll jet down 322 to 81 north. We've got pork to buy and codes to crack.

Count yourself lucky. Those carnivorous sausage get vicious when hungry, and are known to eat members of other ethnic groups. Why, just last week a we had a German Eating Brat eat two Irishmen and an Italian . . .

Cracking the "kielbasa code" is always ongoing. Pieces are always being found by true kielbasyologists throughout the world. So never think that we must end this quest. As the great slavish philosopher Janko Cesnak said, "Kde nieto kielbasa, ide všetko do úpadku" translated as, "Where there is no kielbasa, everything is headed for collapse." Keep this in mind next time that you do not find kielbasa in your local supermarket.

Maybe somebody can research some of the ancient prophecies concerning this.

Ray, very intriguing and encouraging. As I have hit my fell asleep and can't go back episode this evening I will sit in deep contemplation over your above post.
The question is, is Kunzler Kielbasa really Kielbasa. I'm leaning toward categorizing it as an fake imitation kielbasa.
If Kunzler Kielbasa is not actually Kielbasa and only an imitation then my local supermarket indeed has no true kielbasa in stock.

Then you must heed "Kde nieto kielbasa, ide všetko do úpadku". It is indeed the sign of the times. But it is never too late to reverse the course.

On the other hand, if Mr. Kunzler http://www.kunzler.com wants to denounce his German ancestry, and embrace his Slavic roots, then Kunslowski's (his real name) product will have more acceptance. Word has it that he came from a Polish/German border town.

Besides, what songs has he produced about his products? None.

I will heed "Kde nieto kielbasa, ide všetko do úpadku."
Yes, Mr.Kunzler is really Kunslowski and he has produced no songs about his products. I read an interview he gave the Harrisburg paper about ten years ago. He said that he sought to take the "ethnicity" out of food and make it truly American. He felt that if he didn't produce songs about his food (too ethnic) and he changed his name to appear more German (since German names are accepted and anything Slavic is just too ethnic). He figured that if he didn't make songs, changed his name and didn't even ADD kielbasa to his website except for a tiny little info on it then no one would really remember that kielbasa is Slavic in nature and only think it was a American product with no ethnic ties. But no matter how you change the name, the language, your last name and alter the ingredients with American food service industry preservatives the heart of the Kielbasa still is Slavic.
Changing the last name/language from Slavic to German/American and appearing to cut the kielbasa's ties with the old country doesn't make the kielbasa the all-American sausage.
Mr. "Kunzler" said that by taking (or the appearance of taking away those ties) ethnic and old-world ties away from the Kielbasa would encourage those who weren't Slavic in the USA to embrace and buy lots of Kielbasa.

There are, of course, many varieties of this delectable sausage (some more delectable than others), and most of them are connected with one or another specific locale. The real kolbassy mavens swear that they can tell from the taste where the kolbassy comes from.

The best I ever had was said to come from Drohobych.

I second OP's woohoo!

However, I think the Kielbasa Code is starting to crack our Orthodox Pyrohy. He's becoming more of a wild conspiracy theorist by the day!

Fr. Serge, I think you're the luckiest of us all -- what I wouldn't give to have instant access to all the black and white pudding a lad could eat!

I wonder... if you make a sausage with oats and pig's blood, then add garlic, can it be considered Irish Kielbasa? An Ceilmhas Earinnach, perhaps?

ROFLOL with tears in my eyes.

You two are a lot of fun. It's too bad you can't be there, too.

On another note, I found some great potato salad and baked beans at Sam's Club the other day--great strong flavors; just like homemade. Rather than try to reinvent the wheel, I think I'll just call them for about 20 pounds of each.

I'm getting very hungry.

We can always avoid pictures and skip right on to a webcast. Then we can all be there together, even if we're in the old country.

Do we have any particular Saturday in mind? Or is it just luck of the draw. I need to get on the sauerkraut.

OK, I'll bring a barrel of pickles. But I'm warning you, they are extremely addictive and go only too well with kielbasa. If we have enough time, I'll also bring a big old tub of homemade fermented sauerkraut (takes a few weeks to brew).

Ok, I like the idea. This one I can make since Legion Park is only an hour away from my house. Did we decide on August 2 or 9th? I have Cub Scout camp on the 2nd through the 6th. But August 9th I can make. But do what's best for the crowd. I'm not up to making anything homemade in large quantities. Of course, I guess it all depends on how large a crowd we are talking about. I can make some pirohi, depending on the size of the crowd and the date. Seriously, count me in if I can make it! I have my mother's recipe for holupki for 50 in the Holy Trinity Monastary Cookbook, circa 1960! I could try that, I suppose.

Sadly, Legion Park is booked through July and August. Just got the word today that there are no open Saturdays. We'd have to book much, much farther in advance to get a date in the summer.

Any ideas?

Yes, you did read right--I'll be happy to attend if I can and bring something good to munch on. Don't worry, we'll send a toast to everyone who can't attend and eat something for you, in your honor. Just name your food of choice and one of us will be happy to eat it for you. Did I say eat? Heck, it will go down so fast "inhale" is a better word!

DelGrosso's in Tipton is not a bad idea. I lived in Altoona for a bit but it was a while ago (circa 1990) and can't remember if there are any other parks that have pavilions for rent. I think Bob is the best one for that since he's local.

Oh, and Orthodox P, he's local too.

Bob, thank you for checking for us!
DelGrosso's will probably be a stretch as everyone gets a pavilion there for company picnics, school picnics, family reunions, and so on. It would probably be hard, but it's worth a call.

I know another place that requires registration. I doubt it would be booked, I'll call.

There are other places too.
Canoe Creek State Park has pavilions.

There are a few pavilions in the Bellwood park.

Do we have to have a pavilion?

Never thought of Canoe Creek. A pavillion is good in case it starts to rain us out. We do need some place to grill.

I'm out of town doing FD CE seminars until Monday so whatever you get together is fine with me.

Canoe Crik doesn't have a pavilion for August 9th or the next weekend. I checked on their website.
And remember if it held on Commonwealth Park Ground alcohol is forbidden by order of the General Assembly. For real, you can't possess alcoholic beverage on Pennsylvania State Park land.

Yes, a thread this long on kielbasa, it happens.

Excuse me if I am asking a dumb question, but I have not read every post on this thread. Where is Alexander's place? If it's close, I would love to come. If it involved long distances and lots of money, I can't make it.

Is Alexander's place something like Hernando's HIdeaway? (reference--a song and dance number from the Broadway musical "The Pajama Game." ) Hernando's Hideaway became a popular song in the mid to late fifties. I can send an mp3 to anyone who wants to hear it. It's quite cute and funny, in a fifties kind of way. The song is about a nightclub/restaurant where people go to meet and flirt.

Bratija,

I just returned from Staryj Kraj. I consummed more "Salo" and alcohol in five days than I have had in the last three years! I have brought back authentic "Carpathian" Brinza cheese, Hriby (mushrooms) and distilled wine spirits (domasha of course). I would still be interested in our "Piknik". I volunteer to be chief "Salo" and pork "Shaslik" chef!

Does anyone have an objection to a picnic in an early September weekend?

I didn't want to try for a time that would give a problem to anyone on the Julian calendar fasting after the middle of August so i didn't inquite about times in Hollidaysburg in the latter two weeks of August.

Secondly, I hereby decree that you must all settle on a day and a place to meet...Bob has been more than gracious, AND serious, so please get your acts together and help him out, or the thread will be closed forever, and you will have lost your chance!!! wink

For all the serious subjects here I think it's a hoot that we can devote twelve plus pages to a discussion of who makes the best kielbasa and whence its origin.

What Greek food can we debate next? grin grin

Yes they do, but there is really no place to do anything except use one of the pavillions unless the gorup just wants to eat and ride the rides. And I'm not sure about their rules about alcohol.

You can drink alcohol at a rented pavilion at DelGrosso's
(the family owned amusement park formerly known as Bland's Park), but getting one isn't exactly a cake walk at the last moment. I have one place to call back since I'm back around regular internet service, home base, etc..

Actually both the Greeks and the Chinese make very good varieties of sausage. And souvlaki is one of my favorite foods.

Meanwhile, please wish me luck - I'm going to try making Italian sausage.

Ok, here is the deal. August 9 at Reservoir Park, Tyrone PA we can get a pavilion. We can go about this several ways.

We can just cross our fingers and hope there is an open pavilion and use it that day (only to show up and not find one open).

Or we can reserve it for 35 dollars. Right now there out of 17 pavilions no. 1,2,9, 10A and 10b are reserved for August 9th.

The last the last few in the park never have reservations. I actually have never seen all the pavilions being used at the same time but I don't think we want people driving from Pittsburgh to have no pavilion available when we show up.

Cool. Bring it on! Let's get a tally of who is bringing what and let me know if we should for sure secure a picnic pavilion via reservation.

Would sausage made by a Ukrainian still be able to be considered "kielbasa"?

or is it a banger?

It looks like it could be just me and you. Like what 18000 hits on this thread and twenty pages for me and you to make plans. Haha, just think we could have saved all of this and actually communicated via phone. Is anyone else coming?

Orthodox Pyrohy,
Glory to Jesus Christ!
I am reminded of a cartoon in the "Dilbert" strip. A young trainee is reporting the success of a conference call:
"The Conference call was a huge success".
"Three out of eighteen people were available and only one of them forgot to call in".
Boss: "So it was a phone call between two people"?
Trainee: "It would have been if they hadn't used the mute buttons".
