    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
    blight and seal excrescence conserve, served in a splashing casserole
    containing specialised bits of monkey testicle in butter, a side of
    foetal canary heart and a draught of clotted ligament puree.
