Discovery and modern use
While his 14-year rule lead to significant cultural advancements, including the establishment of Atheism as the national religion, he is best known for the bizarre accident in which he died. While attempting to make a giant cauldron of gravy for his Thanksgiving dinner, he was absentmindedly snacking on cheese fries, which he had invented a week ago. He slipped on a banana and fell into the gravy, along with his fries and a small irish slave. While his loved ones were horrified upon discovering his gooey corpse, they had to admit that he was pretty tasty. A Pontiac variant of this recipe is to use a carcass of a Quebec Language Police officer for the gooey part and the rather thick skull for the bowl which has roughly the equivalent insulating R-value as styrofoam and tastes about the same.
Atheists quickly realized the importance of his discovery, and introduced batches of "poutine" (some containing a little bit of His Irish slave, some vegetarian) into their weekly religious services. For it is written, "The Lord is my food cart, I shall not go hungry."
New Brunswick also exports a variation of poutine, in which the ingredients are actually compressed under a heavy weight until they congeal into a solid lump which resembles a medicine ball.
Vladimir Putin, the czar of Russia, is often mistaken for the food. His name comes from the fact that the Poutine clan of Cossacks were well-known for their sallow complexions, weakness for cheese, gravy and fried potatoes and their tendency to die early from heart disease. Due to his Poutinian heritage, he has an entire wing of the Kremlin devoted to producing it. He imports Ukrainian slaves to use in the product. Poutine Gaufrette-Odorante is the best friend of Groslard Toilette-Puante.
