May Wah doesn't sell some unholy soy-gluten mixture in the shape of a tongue? If not, what a missed opportunity.

I just. No,

My Dad and several of my exes have eaten tongue and kept it in the house, but it was always way too close to a human tongue for me to even try. You have to peel off the tough outer layer and it has recognizable tastebuds on it. I think this is the only food that has ever grossed me out - most stuff I would eat, but it was gross to think of your dinner tasting you back.

I think I'm sufficiently ready to puke now and I have a horrible sensation in my tongue.

Yeah people eat it. This is kind of dated but I remember in one of the Ramona Quimby books, Ramona and Beezus were horrified to find that in order to pinch pennies, their mother had bought tongue for dinner.


That was an epic Ramona moment. I remember that they made a sauce for the tongue out of yogurt.

The tongue was a meal the mother made and tried to disguise. The yogurt sauce was for chicken; the daughters had to make that meal as a punishment for being picky eaters and refusing the tongue when they discovered what it was.

My dad used to eat tongue, but by the time it got to our house it was already sliced into cold cuts and unrecognizable. Still, even when I was eating meat, the thought just skeeved me the fork out, so I never tried it.

Okay, I knew I had something mixed up in my memories of that episode. You'd think their grocery-store manager father would have been able to get some discounts on non-tongue foods.

The dad was going back to school so he had quit his job at the grocery store i think. My students find this part of the book really disgusting.

Clearly, I need to have a Ramona refresher. It's tempting to re-read some of the books over the summer.

I also have fond, though probably somewhat incorrect, memories of her excitement over getting a package of plain white paper all to herself. It was a big deal to have that much paper.

Maaaaan! I totally need a vegan version of this. I have a big block of tofu in the fridge so I will get pressing it tomorrow.

Wrap a log of seitan in some string, throw it in a bag, add some Tang, and nail it to a tree!

And then they accidentally used banana or vanilla yogurt instead of plain! And the pot they tried to use for the rice was too small!

Yes. Go read everything Beverly Cleary ever wrote. Now! We'll wait.

I thought of this thread while I was out. Since we live in the middle of forking nowhere, I pass battlefields and corn fields to get to B&N. There were 3-4 police cars along the road and all the officers were out looking in the cornfield (unless it was the battlefield) near the side of the road.

It's pretty slow around here, so police rush off en masse to anything, so the quantity of law enforcement doesn't mean anything.

YOU NEED TO READ ALL OF THE BEVERLY CLEARY. I have a summer assignment for one of my classes to start and maintain a blog about middle-grade literature, and the name I've already picked out is a Ramona reference.

No, I didn't either.

I tried to eat strawberries today but they looked too much like tongues for me to eat them.
