Open to Interpretation

I found this headline that made me choke on my tea:

Anorexic Women Taste Different

So they taste different than....what? Chicken? Another person? Lima beans?

No, it's a review of the research done by Walt Kaye at UCSD about the different perceptions of taste and pleasure done in people with anorexia.

I'm assuming no one was eaten during the course of this study.

I can tell you are a budding "Far Side" scientist/cartoonist. : )

Puts a whole new meaning to: "bite me."

And to "ED Bites!"

It also puts a whole new meaning to "what's for dinner"?

or ..a whole new meaning on "Guess who's coming to dinner?"

(just watched the movie again last weekend ... amazing how so little has changed in 40 years since it came out!)

I was thinking of "Silence of the Lambs".

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.

Drop me a line!
