Meatballs can come from anywhere… well, maybe not Mars. If you see a Martian meatball at your local eatery, there would be questions. But here on earth, you can make any flavor into meatball flavor, including Vietnamese flavors and spices. And what would a meatball from Mars say, if confronted on its origin? "We come from France!"
