Let me whip out a little Torah here for a moment to explain. When the Israelites fled Egypt, they were pretty stoked about going to the promised land. But then after wandering for a while in the desert, they started to doubt that this whole desert-wandering was worth the trouble. And they began to miss their lives back in Egypt:
"remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost—also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic." -Numbers 11:5
Who WOULDN'T miss melons with garlic...wait, I must be reading that wrong.
