smoking... and eating!

Here's the problem with the current food media: you'd never see Rachel Ray say this:

Once I saw a corpse fished from a Louisiana bayou, and it was three times its size for the shrimps sucking at it; and another time I saw another corpse, off Brittany, stripped by lobster claws; and still I think without any qualm at all all that shrimps, and all their cousins, make one of the sweetest things in this world to put between my teeth.

-Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher, 1948
