Everyone Is Talking About Black Pudding

Pigs are very beautiful animals.  There is no point of view from which a really corpulent pig is not full of sumptuous and satisfying curves

The Uses of Diversity ─ GK Chesterton

One time, I was in this fancy restaurant in London, and I ordered black pudding. I thought it was, like, chocolate pudding.  But it’s pig’s blood!  It was so nasty, I spit my food out on the table right there in front of all these people!

Food Horror ─ Carmen Electra
