    Tofu and "gag" are a good pair. Whatever happened to the FAQ? I wanted to select an appropriate smilie.

    I can honestly say color has little to no bearing on my food decisions. Maybe it's the same reason I don't have a favorite color. Smell, on the other hand, can lead me to try something or run screaming from it.

    By the way, what the hell are ants on a log?
