It's that time of year, and before you make a resolution to lose weight, I have a request...
Poll: Pick your poison: Old age or young again?


I'll take youth, where it's easy to lose weight.

You can get some good deals at wegotcapers dot com. Stay away from capersoftheworld dot tv, though; you're apt to re-labeled Cassia buds. And thecaperstore dot net doesn't actually sell capers at all, just a lot of rappelling equipment, tricked-out Mini Coopers, phony government photo IDs, and blueprints for major banks and art galleries around the world.

Cannibalism trope
Definitely inferior foods Americans love...


Haute cannibalism frowns on the American penchant for thymus and adrenals.

Way too fatty.

Definitely. Last night my dinner was an uncooked frozen meatball and a Bouillon cube and I have to say the meatball was slightly better.
