I enjoyed this very much, but when I brought it into the room apparently some others had heard of it. Story of my life, I guess. Sample quote:
In every possible world, there is a latke. How do we know this? By discovering that it is impossible to imagine a world in which there is no latke. Try it.
First, imagine a world. Put in everything you need for a world; this is to be a whole world, not a fragment.
Now add in a latke.
Now take that latke out. It cannot be done, can it?

UPDATE: I am reminded that Molly O'Neill's New York Cookbook has a funny recipe for latkes, specifiying Kitty Carlisle's version of "Beat Out That Rhythm On A Drum". Plus potatoes, of course. You can see it here.
