Pood is that which you put in
side yourself to keep going. If
you earn only $12 a week, you
eat nice wholesome things like
corned beef and cabbage and oat
meal. This eventually turns you
into a flue type of mauhood
known as a Ruffnrok. If, on the
other hand, you earn $100 a
week (and get it) you nibble at
dainty bits like Fillet aux Mig
non, wine scuffle and green tur
tle soup. This reduces you to a
cultchawed highbrow and gives
you queer habits like having your
nails manicured. Food is great
