   You're gonna EAT a kumquat? Or more than one, at least? Guess that means
the ones we see in the stores up here aren't the real thing, not surprising.
I always assumed they must be something people just sliced into punchbowls,
or used to lend interest to the corncob jelly.


   Never managed to gain unobserved access to a punchbowl long enough
   to introduce either a kumquat or a handful of unrolled condoms....
