    I like your new intro music. It's quieter and not as annoying as the previous music. Favorite meal is almost anything that involves meat, cheese and/or garlic.

    I know bad shrimp smell and taste very powerfully of ammonia. How? Mom made a gumbo dish, using shrimp that was almost expired. I took a bite if shrimp, and promptly spat it right back out, due to the nasty taste. Mom was about to scold me for it, and then the smell showed up! I’m now allergic to shrimp...
