"Have you ever stopped to think that plate of fries might just as soon feed you to the dog?"

I just received the Winter 2009 Hyperion catalog, and here's what caught my eye:

Food Hates You, Too and Other Poems by Robert Weinstock (February 2009)

And here's a sample poem from the catalog:

Benjamin Benjamin Dietz

Meet Benjamin Benjamin Dietz.
He repeats and repeats what he eats.
He eats sweet-flavored meats,
With his meat-flavored sweets,
And eats beets with his beets with his beets.

The catalog also shows a spread of a great Goodnight Moon parody.

I anticipate this will be the perfect antidote to the plethora of baking-as-family-bonding books coming out soon (or already out).
