Well, if you p**** want to eat that junk thats' your life. Today I ate 1 day old road kill.
A rabbit killed by a local dog, once i kicked the dog [tyson]off the rabbit skinned it, gutted it, few onions garlic carrots and potatoes simmer 1 glass red obelisk, a meal fit for a king and all totally local produce within 5O yrds of the back door, Now you can't get any more organic that that can you. Vegetarians? they've never starved luxury armchair radicals...8)
Plus I'm a third of the way for a pair furry slippers, You can't wear Tofu on your feet..

That's so disgusting! How could you, you PHILISTINE?! Everybody knows that Obelisk is virtually undrinkable! Nothing less than Omar can possibly suffice. Drag yourself out of the gutter, man, before it's too late!

Methinks no-one read the comments at the bottom of the page.

I always knew that red colouring came from Cocheneal.....I remember it being a question on Trivial pursuits many years ago.....I knew the answer and my sister was disgusted. (Wwhich led me to wonder how I knew and she didn't!)

No mention of Civic coffee in that article. Civic coffee being the Indonesian Bali coffee made with coffee beans that have passed through a civic cat. The civic cat cannot digest the bean completely and so the result is ground and made into coffee.

It is a very expensive coffee and not one I would be tempted to try.

Oooh I would Tony sounds very intense, and when you think about it, it's already partially digested. I imagine it's expensive as very labour intensive to produce, cant say I've ever come across it. :P

Tony...it's Civit coffee, not civic. :lol:

And Argon oil from Morocco sort of goes the same way. Goats eat the nuts, nuts are excreted, women collect the nuts and go through a long drawn out process to extract the oil, hence why so expensive.

No - we do get bitten by mozzies, even in mid-winter! I'll give you the lack of 'trots' though.
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!
