From Plastic Tub

American. He shows up swinging wildly, his mouth leaking slightly. He is a sandwich of sky, earth and mayo. He receives mustard -- for which he has been asking.

emergency room after an attempt to prove that man can sustain nourishment from
art alone. Sources say statham was seen eating pages of his prose, until his
stomach became overly enlarged. After two hours in the operating room, statham's
stomach was returned to normal size, although his ego remains as bloated as
