Disturbing product of the month:
	Armour Pork Brains with Milk Gravy

Where and when bought:
	Ingles supermarket, Asheville, N.C., October 1995, for 73 cents.

Bonus points:
	That delicious milk gravy.

Extra special bonus points:
	Contains a mighty 1,170 percent of the U.S. recommended daily
	allowance for cholesterol.  Yes, that's no typo - 1,170 percent.

Suggested alternative use:
	Switch label with a fruit cocktail can for a horrific lunchbox prank.

Company defense:
	"People love'em!" piped Nancy Dedera, spokeswoman for Phoenix-based
	Dial Corp., owner of Armour.  But, alas, we couldn't discover the
	breadth of that love, because she refused to release sales figures.
	A brain-eater herself (she likes hers with hot sauce), Dedera
	brushed aside concerns about the whopping cholesterol count, saying,
	"If you're going to eat brains, you're not going to worry about
	cholesterol." Good point.
