I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS PITA, AM I SOME KIND OF HOBOMAN!? IN FACT THIS IS NOT SUITABLE FOR A GOD SUCH AS MYSELF!!!!!!! I WOULD ONLY FEED THIS TO THOSE PATHETIC HOMELESS CHILDREN THAT LIVE UNDER THE BRIDGE, PURELY FOR MY AMUSEMENT, BECAUSE THE REPULSIVE FLAVOR WOULD CAUSE THEM TO REGURGITATE IT INSTANTLY!!!!!!!
