Dice each finely in its own bowl and add shallots, turbot and kimchee. Let stand in airless basement for at least three weeks. Add pickled herring and whole guavas. Pour into toaster slots and top off with lighter fluid. Depending on toaster, you may have to repeat if you like it darker.

Well, you know how to sex a rabbit don't you? It's very similar.

Of course, Aimless's sensual poem on the subject, 'Poking persimmons in an ash forest and pomegranates in a cypress copse' got Modern Entropy magazine banned for a month in several countries.

Ah yes, good times. Until then, I never knew the Saudis even cared.

I think it was the lurid line on the 'scarlet orb as oft caressed as Tardi Al-Jorba's pearl-white breast' that may have shocked them.

This seems to be our stock answer to most inquiries.

The last stock tip I received in the pub was to buy frog bellies.

Sure, it was up and down for a while but it suddenly sank.

Left me feeling green around the gills, so to speak.

five years pass...

One case in medical literature from 2004 revealed a 51-year old patient who had eaten a kilogram (2.2 pounds) of unpeeled persimmons each day for 40 years.[19][20] Surgery is sometimes employed, but Coca-Cola has also been successfully used to chemically shrink or eliminate persimmon-related bezoars.[21]
