A wife was cooking a pot roast for dinner. Before she put it in the pan she cut a small piece off of the end of the roast. When her husband asked why she did this she replied, "It was the way my mother taught me."

The wife called her mother and asked why she always cut the end of the roast off before she put it in the roasting pan. Her mother replied, "It was the way your grandmother taught me."

The wife then called the grandmother and asked her why she cut the end off a roast before she put it in the roasting pan. The grandmother replied, " I had a small roasting pan. The roast was always too big to fit into the pan"

Continuing the culinary theme...

There was once a panda whose dad was a goose. The panda was making noodle soup one day when his father, the goose said it was time to pass on the family tradition: The secret ingredient to "Secret Ingredient Noodle Soup".

In this case (based on a real story: look it up!) the family was fully aware of the purpose of the tradition.

I believe there is a similar cause for islamic prohibition against eating pigs...just, incidentally; 'i get your point' is what i'm saying.

"They ask me, Hank,
Why do you drink?
Hank, why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
If I'm down in a honkytonk, some ol' slicks tryin' to gimme some friction,
I say leave me alone, I'm singing all night long, it's a family tradition."

There's also something to be said about throwing the baby out with the bath water. Lots of traditions have a ton of inherited wisdom passed down through the ages. And sometimes, you only figure that out after it's too late.
