Finally, A Meme After My Own Heart

Food Meme

Food meme from Auntie Bubbo.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you've eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at linking to your results.

As the formatting shortcuts don't seem to work in Explorer, I'll just "yes or no" OK?
