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)

*Wimpy, named after the Popeye sidekick, was the first major British fast food chain. (The official spelling of the lyric appears to be “Wimpey”)

    The Ides of March and it’s a new in depth development on eatfeats. Image, information, new regions, absolutely terrific. The mystery of OJ deepens and reveals way beyond the statistician. This is fun. Competitive eating should be fun and interesting.
