    In the beginning, all literature was orally communicated. And to help them remember, the bards would sing the lines--often with other instruments to keep the rhythm. These stories were only written down much later. So literature begins as a musical performance.

    The poem of Beowulf is the subject of much debate as to whether it was passed down through the oral tradition or whether it was an original written composition. And just when it would have originated follows from that--no less than J.R.R. Tolkien has weighed in on this debate. However, the earliest dates for Beowulf--if it was an oral performance--would be the 6th century, which is late in the history of literature. The epic poem of Gilgamesh had its origins three thousand years ago.

    I was being a jerk.

    As I understand it, especially in Greece and Japan, there's some debate about whether it was song or poetry recital.

    But I ain't an expert.

    Wait. What?

    Your Second must contact My Second.

    Because, clearly, only a duel may settel the disparagement of such a wonderful (if judiciously applied) condiment.

    I kind of knew that. :P

    In my mind there's a debate whether rap is song or sound poetry. But I don't think most people make that distinction. It's all the same thing--Homer is rapping.

    Same logic as mayo on a fried bologna sandwich.

    Makes about as close to complete sense as anything involving hot dogs or bologna ever will.

    Mayo in any form is an affront to humanity.

    I like Mayo of fried and tater tots.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Mayo or mustard on a piece of eat is an insult to the poor beast who died for you.

    I've always been a mayo fan. But I went to the Ommegang Brewery, which is a Belgian Brewery here in New York (not sure if their beer is available elsewhere) and got an order of fries and because they're Belgian, they came with homemade mayonnaise. That was next level. I now get a side of mayo whenever I order fries.
