The history of the biscuit is as follows: people worked in the hot sun and had flour and lard and needed something scrumptious and tender with which to sop up their roasted and fried meats, stewed vegetables, and gravies, and therefore baked some biscuits.
Biscuits. You want them. You want to spread jam or honey on them. You want to pour thick country gravy on them. You want to sandwich them with slabs of down-home bacon. What is down-home bacon? I don't know.
You over there! Give me some god damned biscuits! I'm a biscuit bitch.
