    The bit that's almost smoking is trout. The chicken & trout combo sounds tempting, but I may try it on the cat first.

    Smoked trout stuffed chicken on a bed of cat? Even the old man would turn up his nose at that!

    According to Captain Beefheart it's actually a carp.

    If a mod to limit the number of fertile seed generations crossed into grass for example or marine phytoplankton and spread, we'd all be in the tulip big time along with all animal life on Earth.

    Funny stuff food.

    It's all genetically modified anyway. Carrots used to be purple until the Dutch started messing around with them.

    Where do you find a wild herd of Friesian cows?

    Wheat? That's just grass with a genetic defect.

    Dogs are genetically modified wolves.

    Nice big juicy strawberry? Funny the wild ones are tiny. It wasn't until the late 18th century that they became domesticated.

    And did you know that a modern hen will lay around 300 eggs a year? Back in the 50's they only laid 100.

    Most foods have been losing their nutritional value ( and taste ) over the last 100 years or so driven by a desire to make them bigger and prettier.
