I fondly recall watching my girlfriend's first attempt at Vegemite. She is from Taiwan and had never seen it before. We had only been together for a while and I walked into the lunchroom in our office and found her making lunch. I noticed she was caking Vegemite onto a piece of toast so I said "you like that stuff?" (personally I can't stand the stuff unless its used as a stock in cooking or in gravy, or mashed potatoes, all of which its actually quite good for).
She then said "Oh I haven't had it before". It was at this point I realised I should sit down to watch the fun, you see she thought Vegemite was the same as Nutella, which makes what she did next even more bazar.
Once she had smothered the toast with stupendous amount of Vegemite she mashed avocado over the top of it then pulled a cooked egg out of the microwave and mashed it into the concoction and sat down and ate it, or at least tried to. Her reaction to it was rather amusing.
