I'm quite sure almost no one else in my family pumvalefiacs. They think my father and I are very weird for doing it. Yet, I know several other people who would consider it quite normal. The question is, what is it?

Does it involve food?
Work?
Leisure?
A daily activity?
Do you and your father pumvalefiac together?
Can it be done alone?

Hey, ISH! :-D
Does it involve food?This
Work? Inasmuch as food preparation can be called work.
Leisure? Thisish
A daily activity? Not for me and Dad, unfortunately; I can't speak for others where this would be more common.
Do you and your father pumvalefiac together? Well, we're together, but we do the activity separately...'at around the same time' might be more accurate. He's not 'helping' me do it.
Can it be done alone? Oh yes, it only needs one person.

Hey Kaylee!

Does it involve the physical act of preparing food?
Or more how the food itself is being prepared?
Does it involve breakfast? Lunch? Dinner?

Glad to see you on my new puzzle, ISH! You too, Balin! *hugs*

ISH: Does it involve the physical act of preparing food? The food's already mostly prepared, it's just...
Or more how the food itself is being prepared? ...this, I think. It involves condiments/garnish of a sort.
Does it involve breakfast? Lunch? This Dinner? Or this

Balin: Is the specific food relevant? VERY relevant, GOOD q!
Food preparation? Yesish, see above
Can anybody pumvalefiac? Assuming they have the correct food and they want to.
Can the action be done with drinks as well? No.

ISH: Is the food packaged/frozen? It can be, but it's not best that way.
Or made more or less from scratch? It's better made fresh.
Is it cooked? Yes.
Ingredients present in food:
Bread? No.
Meat? DOYD of meat. Animal, yes.
Vegetables? DOYD of 'vegetables', yes, though they're generally served in their country of origin with peas.
Fruit? Only the juice of one particular.
Dairy? No.
Sauce or condiment? These are what you need to figure out.


Balin: Is the food a snack? No.
Dessert? No
Main course (DOYD of "course")? Yesish.
Something like a hot dog? No.
Or hamburger? Not this.
Is it eaten for breakfast? No.
Lunch? This is more common in its country of origin, I think, and sometimes here,
Dinner? though this is probably more common here, and there too.

Is the specific type of fish relevant? Only for purists like myself. *snicker* And only certain kinds of fish are accepted in its country of origin, one in particular.
Method of cooking? Very relevant indeed!
Is it sushi? I wouldn't touch raw fish with a ten foot pole, thanks. =P No, not this.

What about an eleven-foot pole?

Is the fish grilled? Boiled? Fried? Roasted? Blackened? Is it fish and chips?

Fried? Yes, and...
Roasted? No, because...
Blackened? Not this, but see below...
Is it fish and chips? YES!!!!! So, can you figure it out, then?

Do you eat it with tartar sauce? Ick, I hate the stuff.
Hot sauce? *shudder*
Lemon juice? THIS! And...
Ketchup? What do you take me for, an American? :-p Well, okay, so yes, I am, but proper chips should not be eaten with ketchup. You're missing something else, too. And by all that is holy do not say mustard unless you want me to be sick. Haha.

So you put something distinctive on your fish and chips? Something that some people would consider normal, and others odd?

Does this have to do with Anglo-American cultural differences?

You put peanut butter on it, don't you ;0)

Raisins?

(Incidentally, the real thing comes with malt vinegar. A gentrified version involves a lemon. Peas, certainly. Some like curry sauce, but not so much with a fish. Others like 'scraps', which in other parts of the UK are called 'bits'. These are battery leftovers. This is a Northern thing. No doubt Mr Woubit will come along and explain that they eat them with stale beer and pheasant-dripping in his neck of the woods.)

So you put something distinctive on your fish and chips? Something that some people would consider normal, and others odd? Yes, keep in mind I'm an American, though my paternal grandfather, who died before I was born, was from Cheshire :-D Brits would consider me perfectly normal (I hope) while my American family and friends (save for my dad, and my Anglophile friend Michelle) consider me an oddity.

Does this have to do with Anglo-American cultural differences? Yes, I'd say so. I developed the habit of eating fish and chips after visiting England.

You put peanut butter on it, don't you ;0) What do you take me for, Woodworm?!?!?!?!

Raisins? Oh come now, I said chips, not celery!

(Incidentally, the real thing comes with malt vinegar. A gentrified version involves a lemon. Peas, certainly. Lemon, and I've had them with peas over there, they never come with peas over here. *Sigh* But peas have nothing to do with it. Some like curry sauce, but not so much with a fish. Others like 'scraps', which in other parts of the UK are called 'bits'. These are battery leftovers. Er...'battery leftovers'? Never got further north than Stoke-on-Trent. This is a Northern thing. No doubt Mr Woubit will come along and explain that they eat them with stale beer and pheasant-dripping in his neck of the woods.) If you say so. =P

Not a drop of Belgian blood in me. They must be weirder than Americans. :-p

(Relieved about the PB thing. I'd better not guess Jello, then.)

How about a nice pickled egg? (Quite popular with an older generation here in Scarborough.)

I have never been to Scarborough, nor Scarborough Fair, so pickled eggs are not relevant. Nor are parsley, sage, rosemary or thyme. That was someone else's puzzle. And no, I haven't had Jello in a while and would never eat it with fish and chips. Balin's statement was very close to the answer in part...

We have ruled out curry sauce, and we may rule out brown sauce (is that the same as HP sauce? or is it like A1?) and HP sauce. Balin actually mentioned the condiment, missing the necessary adjective, in one of his guesses.

Oh, I did say malt vinegar above: several posts up. Admittedly not phrased as a question.

Well, everyone here has this with their fish and chips. Is it that the Americans think this strange? Or perhaps that you mix it with lemon?

Balsamic? Now that would be posh :-) This is my mother's favorite vinegar, but she wouldn't put it on fish and chips.

Oh, I did say malt vinegar above: several posts up. Admittedly not phrased as a question. I must have accidentally ignored it. Sorry, Woodworm.

Well, everyone here has this with their fish and chips. I'd noticed. :-D
Is it that the Americans think this strange? They (my family and friends) most certainly find it odd, although luckily it's not so unknown that I can't get malt vinegar and lemon when I eat out and ask for them.
Or perhaps that you mix it with lemon? Especially this. It's enough for a ***SPOILER***, I think...

To pumvalefiac is to PUt Malt Vinegar And LEmon on FIsh And Chips.

Aaaah ... I'm so slow. I knew that word was chosen for a reason, and I wondered if it was an anagram. Hehe. I'll give it a try next time.

I thought it was a rule that the neologistic word *had* to be an anagram, so maybe I just don't know enough about them. They all seem to be, at least the ones I've read.

Thanks for cracking the puzzle, Balin and Woodworm, and thanks for weighing in, ISH! Fish and chips = most awesome. Do try. Although the fish MUST be cod to be the best quality, and the chips should be what Americans would call steak fries or wedge-cut fries, NOT French fries. (And God spare me, NOT what we Americans refer to as chips. Potato chips and cod do NOT work.)

I had the opportunity to try some while in Newfoundland, but chose cod tongue instead. Surprisingly tasty!

I agree with your assessment of fish and chips quality, Kaylee. And no, not all neologisms need to be anagrams, acronyms, or other wordplays, although most are created that way.
