crackerbarrel


crackerbarrel
«Бочонок с галетами». В XIX в. в Америке в маленьких городах уважаемые граждане (мелкие предприниматели, учителя, врачи и т. п.) встречались в магазинах смешанных товаров по вечерам, чтобы поболтать, обсудить местные дела. На этих встречах собравшиеся угощались печеньем или галетами из бочонков или ящиков, находившихся в магазине. Выражение crackerbarrel philosophy («философия бочонка с галетами») стало означать упрощённый, мещанский взгляд на мир, отсутствие глубокого изучения и детального знания всех фактов данной проблемы.
