Listening to this piece in the 1920's must have been like setting foot on another planet. I like Accisma's comment:
You serve the meal to your guests, and sit back anxiously. Their response is.. not similar to your own. They gag, choke, grab for the water, some even vomiting. They then proceed to hurl abuse in your direction, accusing you of feeding them something that isn't even edible.
It would be hard to defend yourself without sounding like you're an elitist. To us, it really does feel like people are missing out on something amazingly beautiful, an aesthetic sensation like no other.
