Test signature

Dinner tonight:
Over-ripe field mouse giblet and yak appendix sauce complemented by skank
aborted feotus and water buffalo buttock dressing with terrible rat snake

containing specialised bits of monkey testicle in butter, a side of
foetal canary heart and a draught of clotted ligament puree.
