This dinner would sink me, digestively and financially. No icebergs required.

I guess I just find the whole thing baffling. Not that people would want to recreate this meal -- it's not my idea of fun but I understand other people enjoy reenacting history -- but if you're going to, why not do it right?
Here's the actual menu:

Note that it's in a much different serving order and rearranges what is paired with what. Wouldn't that be like Civil War reenactors not caring about the accuracy of their costumes or when and how many casualties went down? Isn't the whole point of such an exercise to get it as close to reality as possible? Just seems to me the sort of folks who would be most interested in this kind of thing would be, y'know, the kind of nitpicker I'm being now. (And speaking of nitpicking, isn't it either a "replica" of the meal or "inspired by" it? Or does "replica" not mean what I always thought it did?)

Using those two words together creates a confusion in my mind as well. From the context it looks like the meal is a lot more inspired by than replicated.

Or perhaps modern day replicas aren't the replicas of yesteryear. These are not our fathers' replicas.

And we would be surprised if the replicator on the Enterprise did something like that.

Wagstaff, your menu isn't clickable so not readable.

Just zoom in. I'm pretty sure even Windows can handle that.

Soon you will have no health care if the Republicants get their way.

But try to googe it: googing it!

Thanks but when zooming the menu gets blurry as it gets bigger. Still hard to read at a bigger size. What does this have to do with it?: "no health care if the Republicants get their way."

A luncheon based on a Titanic menu takes place in Arthur C. Clarke's 1976 novel "Imperial Earth," set in 2276. "The secret of Cockie Leekie went down with the ship, and perhaps it's just as well."
