Ah, but what about pig brains? I like this story that Selene has told  
several times here over the years. (You can find the more complete  
version of this in the Florilegium pig-heads-msg file.

The head was capped with a gilded
Crown, so I bore the Boar to the King Guy, exhorting him to de-crown the
pretender and begin the sweet course.  The king graciously did so.   
Being a
good little herald-cook, I announced it to the crowd.

"The King has the brains of a Pig!"

King Guy looks at me.  I look at him.

"I have an amendment to the previous announcement.  The King does NOT  
have the
brains of a Pig!"

King Guy looks at me.  I look at him.

"I'm leaving while I still have MY head," quoth I, and did so with  
all speed.

cook, herald and unemployed jester

So, how does HRH Gunthar like his brains? :-)


PS: There are instructions by Adamantius on preparing pig heads in  
that file...
