    Sugar, enriched flour, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, polysorbate 60 and yellow dye #5

    Everything a growing boy needs.

    But vitamin A, which is oil soluble, is also plentiful in the oils of cold-water fishes and sea mammals, as well as in the animals’ livers, where fat is processed.
    There are some animals in the far north that contain poisonous doses of vitamin A in their livers.

    I said we were omnivores - how did I get attached to that remark, I demand a recount!

    Humans were made by god in his image. God is an omnivore, that's why we're omnivores. God once went sixteen years surviving on Chicken McNuggets and Diet Coke, that's why we can do likewise.

    That article's a load of shit. Look at carrion birds, they're carnivores and they don't have 'fangs', or a Komodo Dragon, it doesn't have fangs -or- claws, it just holds the prey down with its feet and chomps away.

    Or a pig, a motherfucking pig. It quite happily remains an omnivore, but it barely has teeth, let alone using its trotters to 'subdue'.

    Blah at that.

    CHIMPS


    Chimps are omnivores and they have fucking massive fangs. They bite peoples faces off.

    I'm going to set a chimp on a vegetarian.

    Chimps think they're so hot. But you know what? They're not.

    Sorry. I just get annoyed at the suggestion that humans are herbivores.

    Bacon is the greatest food ever created.

    Bacon bits on a salad make the salad ten times better.

    Therefore mankind is omnivorous. QED.

    Died though.
