@betajet: I can imagine someone having a coughing fit with your custard slices taking a quick belt of Vernor's as his last act on this mortal coil.

What a way to go -- not with a bang, but with a <what word should go here?>

PS I've had Vernor's -- as you say it does have a certain robust quality that is not for the faint of heart.

@KB3001: Hunger is a very powerful instinct though, we tend to forget this in our plentiful societies.

All joking aside -- I don't think most of us realize just how fortunate we are...

I've heard of "method acting".  Is this "method eating?"

Your cautionary tale about custard slices reminds me of Vernor's, which is a particularly strong USA ginger ale mostly sold in Michigan and Wisconsin.  If you're not used to Vernor's, the bubbles are so strong that it feels like you're suffocating.  I can imagine someone having a coughing fit with your custard slices taking a quick belt of Vernor's as his last act on this mortal coil.

Note: some people refer to Michigan and Wisconsin as part of the Midwest.  The proper term for the region is the "Upper US", as in "I come from the Upper US".  Be careful how you say that, especially if you have an Italian accent.

@Max, you might need several sessions indeed :-) Hunger is a very powerful instinct though, we tend to forget this in our plentiful societies.

@jstabler: In my opinion, fried green tomatoes, properly prepared, are quite good.

It's one of the things I want to try before I die (I just hope it isn't the thing that kills me :-)

@KB3001: Basically, you need to starve yourself first then prepare the problematic meal and you will erase any past bad memory.

Interesting. I wonder how long I would have to starve myself to wipe my memory clean of the school custard of despair -- I fear it would take a number of sessions.

@David: I'm gonna buy my wife a bottle of ground nutmeg for that very purpose.

Tell her it's her anniversary present :-)

@seaEE: I realized that the doughnut not only had the wonderful lemon, but also the dreaded custard.

Truly the custard of despair.
