Story behind this recipe

Diglossia With Onion Rings has undergone various metamorphoses over the years. From Triglossia-On-The-Cob to Monoglossia-a-la-Monolingualism (sic), the dish has enjoyed so much popularity that rare is the Sociolinguistics Cookbook that doesn't offer some version of it -- if not several.

The dish is, of course, respectfully dedicated to the memory of Charles A. Ferguson.
