Random quote and unrelated photo of the week

Corseteria Roman

It's a little-known fact that the Virgin Mary was fond of creamed spinach. And did you know that sauerbraten was invented by Charlemagne? That the geneticist Gregor Mendel spent much of his time developing a recipe for fried eggs? Or that "people who use considerable red pepper in their foods are almost immune to atomic radiation"?

  1. Who can possibly verify or refute the virgin mary's spinach preferences? It's hooey, I say.
