As posted on the goodreads blog:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of nachos, it was the age of cheese, it was the epoch of beef and broccoli, it was the epoch of potatoe skins, it was the season of pumpkin pie, it was the season of apple crisp, it was the spring of popcorn, it was the winter of coffee, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, it was all going direct to the hips, it was all going direct the rear end – in short, the readathon was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
Wow! Simply WOW, Cameron. Well done indeed.
It was the best of waffles; it was the worst of waffles.
–from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens (sort of)

Even when Oilcan was young, he always knew his tiny cousin would eventually find something large enough to express her soul. He’d assumed that it take the form of a sixty foot tall robot that she could ride around in, smashing cars underfoot like Godzilla. It was somewhat of a relief that she settled on a collection of pies. She was better off with crust and filling that loved her than a thousand tons of quasi-intelligent metal. Still, it was a little bit startling to open the door to her “shave and haircut” knock and be face to face with pineapple cream first thing in the morning.
