Mmm. I just ate a tiny, tiny slice of salami that contained:

  • 90 billion milligrams cholesterol
  • 40 pounds sodium
  • 875 hectares fat
  • 1 pinch arsenic

Which for some reason leads me to wonder: when people invented the term "heart attack," did they intend it to mean an attack upon the heart, or by the heart? Like, was it understood to be some form of revenge? Just wondering...idle curiosity....

    I am not sure about any attack, other than the ones I make on my neighborhood coffee shop's bacon chocolate chip cookies.

    That being said, since the hospitals are kind enough to offer angioplasty, I'll have another.

    Heart attacks are the result of living a "rich" life.

  2. is that ruffled chips of beef or beet in that photograph?
