You'll laugh, you'll laugh so hard that you will start to cry, then your eyes will tear up and you'll have to put the book down for a moment to get your composure. You know how good Lileks is on a good day. He wrote his book over the course of many good days. Only Lileks could make a book out of making fun of those really bad cookbooks of the past. Jello molds?

That last sentence makes complete sense if you've read the book.

However, I feel as though I'm not really done with the book until I actually try one of the recipes in there. Who wants to come over for a delicious batch of 7-Up pancakes?

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
