A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

Fuck Your Lecture on Craft, My People Are Dying by Noor Hindi
[Fuck Your Lecture on Craft, My People Are Dying by Noor Hindi]

A tale I heard

Comedians James Acaster and Ed Gamble discussing their preferred kind of guest for their food podcast 'Off Menu':

JAMES: "Guests who can describe how to cook something and make it very simple, but sound delicious, they're my kind of guests."

ED: "See, I'm a lot more stubborn. So if, say, Claudia Winkleman tells us how to do a chicken my immediate thought is, 'I think I know how to do chicken, Claudia'. Whereas I probably should take some tips, really. But I'll go downstairs and burn a chicken, thank you, and that's the way I do it."

JAMES: "Also, Claudia has probably already said that she doesn't drink water and doesn't trust people who drink water. So Ed's quite right not to take advice from her. Whereas I go, 'You're the one I'm listening to.'"

A tale I saw

Dive Bar by Caroline Bird

A tale I wrote

A sausage is a type of meat product
usually made from ground meat,
often pork, beef, or poultry,
along with salt, spices and other flavourings.
Other ingredients such as grains
or breadcrumbs may be included
as fillers or extenders as well as
the soft part of your brain
that won't stop telling you
your insides are a problem.
