There is a saying in Bulgaria similar to the title of this joyful painting by Martina Vacheva. It is common pratice in the country during political campaigns to make a barbecue for the people. The party and politician, who is more generous and serves the better food and drinks, will probably get the votes. The saying relates beyond that to the far spread practice of corruption. The corruption in public life that reaches from the general practice of small gifts and attentions from the communist era to today's politics and economy.
