Dining at the American consulate in Poland this evening, midway through dinner with several high-ranking officials, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was cordially offered a second bowl of borscht. “No, thank you,” he replied as politely as possible. Smith later revealed to the press that the mere smell of the soup had made him feel ill, and that when nobody was looking, he had poured the first bowl down his pants.
