When i was a child my mom bought us imitation ice milk instead of ice cream. I was young and ignorant at the time so I didn't know the difference.

I also didn't know the difference between margarine and butter.

@C VanDorne: What makes you think it was you?

Who else could it be -- it's not like "Max" is the name of every dog and every robot in every science fiction film ... hang on a minute...

Well, I have been described as 1/2 man, 1/2 beast, and 1/2 wit!

@C VanDorne: I can barely describe this pucky meat because I've supressed the memories so thoroughly.  (Thanks for helping me dredge that one up, Max.)

It's just one more service I offer (my bill is in the post :-)

They made imitation cube steak? The real cube steak wasn't bad enough?

@C VanDorne: This is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time.

Why, thank you, but it's only funny if you don't wake up screaming in the middle of the night having flashbacks to the custard (and/or the dinner ladies, for that matter)

"...the custard was in the vats, not the dinner ladies, although I fear it would have been hard to taste the difference."

This is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time.

Anyway, mine is cube steak. I can barely describe this pucky meat because I've supressed the memories so thoroughly.  (Thanks for helping me dredge that one up, Max.)  All I can remember is that my older brother (the oldest kid) liked it, or said he said (suck up!), so we ate it alot.  I'm sure my parents found that very convenient because it was the cheapest meat in the store, even cheaper than the imitation cube steak which sat right next to it.

Making matters worse is how it was cooked.  Low grade cuts of meat have their place if prepared well, but wow, my mother must have been in a hurry every night we ate it.
