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.

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]
