I'm not sure where this photo was taken, but I don't think they have the right target demographic.

Since the product contains no natural ingredients, it contains no pork. Just one more New Jersey Turnpike chemical additive. So, it's halal.

No doubt true, but what if it's deep-fried in lard?

A weird article to choose to say this on, but it is the most recent so it's as good as any other. I found your blog by googling around fruitlessly for pdf's on the African Romance language, I can honestly say that this is a treasure trove, thank you so much.

It's like being felicitously trapped in the corner of a party by a knowledgable bore who seems to only want to go on about topics you find fascinating. Loved the piece about JB Kelly and the last generation of Empire.
