A Real Good Question

In perusing IMDB while working on the syllabus for my summer film class, I came across a documentary entitled "If There Were No Lutherans, Would There Still Be Green Jell-O?"

That's a damn good question. As a recovering Lutheran, I'm inclined to wonder. I ate enough green jell-o growing up that I think there are still chunks of it in my veins. Also, would there still be mysterious casseroles? And weak coffee? Baked hamburgers? Really, I can't stress enough how traumatic an experience good food is for a Lutheran. The whiter the food, the better. Or at least gray, which I think is the point of baking hamburgers--you have to get the color out and turn it an acceptable gray.
