"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

My appetite is my shepherd, I shall always want
It maketh me to sit down and stuff myself.

It leadeth me to my refrigerator repeatedly.

It leadeth me in the path of Burger King for a Whopper.

It destroyeth my shape.

Yea, though I knoweth I gaineth, I will not stop eating.

For the food tasteth so good.

The ice cream and cookies, they comfort me.

When the table is spread before me, it execiteth me.

For I knoweth that soon I shall dig in.

As I filleth my plate continuously, my clothes runneth smaller

Surely, bulges and excess weight shall follow me all the days of my life.

And I will be fat forever.
This is a poem GREATMA had in her recipe file.
