Digesting England by the pound / eatfeats region


Citizens of Hope & Glory,
Time goes by – it’s “the time of your life”.
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your Wimpey[*] dreams,
They eat without a sound;
Digesting england by the pound.

Young man says “you are what you eat” – eat well.
Old man says “you are what you wear” – wear well.
You know what you are, you don’t give a damn;
Bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

Genesis, “Dancing with the Moonlit Knight” (1973) (That is Phil Collins on drums)

Cattlemens in Harrogate, England announces that Tracy Dalkin finished its 72 ounce steak challenge in 21:47, the second fastest time in the history of the restaurant. This might be the best time for a woman to complete a 72 ounce steak challenge meal. The fastest for a female to complete a 72 ounce steak I was previously aware of was Meredith Boxberger's recent mark of 29 minutes.
