In my experience, its been strawberry liquorice laces but only at 2am or cheese stuffed pizza crusts.

Tons of sterilized charcoal and also clay is sent around the world everyday. Chalk is often eaten. My doctor said his wife practically ate his house whenever she was pregnant. I had it. I tried coconut.. hard apples.. nothing worked except charcoal. The minute the baby was born it went away. I got really worried when it didn't go away the second time. I did a huge amount of research. Some specialists say a very low iron count triggers it... and yes the minute I had an iron infusion stopped. Couldn't imagine it now.


Pica? Isn't that what a certain electric mouse Pokemon says all the time? :think:

:D

Let's say it again, just to get into the spirit:
Baa Humbug.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Bah humbug.

Saying Baa is either imitating a sheep, or General Melchett from Blackadder. BAAAAAA!

C'mon, more humbug!

How about we detail what we got ourselves for Christmas?

I got myself Salmonella, Malaria, and the flu. Dotsie'll know what I'm talking about. ;)

Okay, here's something I very nearly put in the 'Headlines That Leave You Speechless' thread, but I thought it better here.

Yeah, read about that this morning. Twonk.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

A bacterium, a protozoa and a virus - now you just need a fungus, and you've got the full set!

I recommend this one, because it's cute!

Actually, I got those because they were the most convenient to get: the only places I can get them in person are at a chain of university bookshops, and in fact, I got there on their last day of business before Christmas and New Year's. They had a stomach ache one, but I declined. Another, slightly less accessible store had E. Coli and Herpes.

My mum loves them, though. And I think that, if I find others in future, I might give them to my brother's kid. Well, once I have one first, anyway. I might make myself a collection. :D

They were pretty damn cheap too, only $10 (Aust) each. :D :dance:

If I ever get a girlfriend, I wonder if they'd like those? After all, nothing says 'I love you' than giving them an infectious disease.




As a plushy, I meant. :?
