  •  Vampire and garlic, a good partnership, (9+ / 0-)

    and sexier than say, zombie and turnip or wraith and dill.

    •  Inscrutable Garlic tainted by process? (6+ / 0-)

      Are they putting the lead in coincidently
      by unknowingly using improper apparatus?
      They couldn't possibly be using it to increase the
      gross weight for outright fraud purposes, I trust.

      I hadn't heard about lead in garlic, but then it
      seems to be a common problem from China.

      What is the source of the lead?
      Is it related to agriculture in or
      around toxic areas, or grown
      with contaminated water sources?

      Are we talking random or rare trace amounts
      -an isolated problem-or is this more of a widespread
      systemic environmental issue?

      What were our own local garlics lead levels like
      when we had lead in the gasoline and paints
      or in our plumbing systems? What are they like now?

      As a totally self appointed knight, or rather, squire
      of the stinking rose, I can not express how sad this makes me.
      I wonder if all of the Chinese buffets in the US use local,
      or imported garlic? If it is in the garlic, it can also be in anything.

      Thanks for all of your efforts.

    •  Lamb and turnip go well together. (4+ / 0-)

      Although I wouldn't do that without garlic. Zombie and turnip, I dunno. Do you eat the stew, or does the stew eat you?

      I don't want to consider zombie sheep. Fenton, the Sheep from Hell is bad enough (filkertom is to blame for that). And bad, bad Brillo is a bad, bad ram, but very much alive (in a fictional sense) when last heard of.

      We are not given mercy because we deserve it, but because we need it.
