Firestone was telling me about different charedi subgroups...
Daniel: the lubavitcher rebbe was chabad's longtime figurehead
Daniel: who they worshiped as a messiah
Sharmin: oh. what is a rebbe?
Sharmin: is it like a rabbi?
Sharmin: only
Sharmin: lolcat
Daniel: yes but it's more, besides adding lolcat
Sharmin: hahaha
Daniel: it's like, general leader
Daniel: it originated as an integrated political/religious community leader in the shtetls

Development branches of Android, the Google mobile phone operating system, are named after desserts. So far there's been Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, and Flan (Eclair and Flan are not out yet). However, this poses a problem. What do you do with later letters? Firestone and I have been brainstorming, but require suggestions:
gelato
haystacks, halva
ice cream?(two words...) icing? (not really a dessert)
jelly
kulfi? kheer? (too ethnic) kringle?
ladyfinger
mousse, macaroon,meringue, mochi,
napoleon
otap (ethnic?)
pudding, parfait, pizzelle, popsicle,pie
quiche? (I don't know how common sweet quiches are, if at all)
rasgulla? rugelach? (also ethnic)
sorbet, spumoni
tiramisu, taffy, torte, truffle
uĹĄtipci? (definitely too ethnic)
v
waffle
x
yogurt? (ambiguous, as it needs to be frozen to be dessert)
zeppoli? (how many people know about this sans wikipedia?)
Come on internets, I'm sure you have exciting, one word desserts that are not totally obscure to suggest :). Here, have some inspiration:



with thanks to Crystal and Scarola for suggestions :)
