Announcement, Spoof


Nutrition, Health

    Announces the launch of 'Dr. Buckland's Head'—an 'eating house' run on a 'novel, economic, and scientific principle', specifically William Buckland's notorious belief in the nutritional value of 'starch, peas, and mangel wurzel'. Dishes include 'Mouchoir de Poche a la Totbury', a 'delicious entree of fricasseed pocket-handkerchiefs', and 'Split Peas au Naturel'.
