Now he serves up his most delicious and satisfying fare: 125 tasty tidbits—some previously unpublished—about food culture and consumption.Here is the essence of our mixed feelings about food captured in outrageously funny morsels and moments. Whether Ziegler portrays a fish psychiatrist offering sage counsel to a fish patient (“Has it ever occurred to you to say, ‘Hey, I quit. I don’t want to be part of the food chain anymore’?”), a culinary face-off between René Magritte and Betty Crocker, or the difference between a sausage and a wienie, the cartoons in this book will have readers so sick with laughter that they won’t be able to eat for a week.
