(Whines) I can't help thinking about Herman Ossian Armour, the founder of Armour Meats, the first company to put meat into cans!

His lavish mausoleum in Woodlawn Cemetery, New York City, is the exact color of fresh liverwurst. And the dome is the exact color of rotten liverwurst. He really should have brought that up with the architect.

Also, the Armour Meat rotten meat scandal of 1898-9 was a direct influence on Upton Sinclair's novel The Jungle.
