          The Joy of TV Dinners Remember those Swanson TV dinners. That's all you needed, that, and of course, the little folding tv table so you could sit in the living room and watch your favorite show. Ahhh, those were the days.

Michel Lotito - Mr Eats-All One day in 1965, a 15-year-old French youth named Michel Lotito was drinking mint tea in a cafe with friends when his cup unexpectedly shattered. In an act of teenage bravado, Lotito swallowed the glass fragments with no ill effects whatsoever. Thus the odd career of Monsieur Mangetout (Mr. Eats-All) began. Within a short time, much to the amusement of his Grenoble neighbors--and the chagrin of his parents--Lotito began giving bizarre public eating exhibitions in which he would consume a variety of seemingly indigestible objects: coins, beer cans, knitting needles, crockery, and razor blades, to name but a few. He later advanced to devouring more challenging fare such as a television set, a bicycle, and a waterbed. Lotito managed his gastric accomplishments by cutting each object into fingernail-sized portions and washing them down with some sort of liquid--usually mineral water. (A true professional, Lotito always travelled with his cutting instruments nearby.) When nature called, Mr. Mangetout had no trouble "passing" the odd viands. While not performing, Lotito had a fondness for steak dinners. At the height of his career, Lotito was earning $2,000 per public appearance in venues as far away as Hong Kong. The apex of Lotito's gastronomic achievements was eating a Cessna two-seat airplane! After swallowing the last morsel in 1980, Lotito declared the propeller to be "delicious." To honor his achievement as the world's foremost omnivore, the impressed folks at the Guinness Book of World Records presented Lotito with a handsome brass plaque. Lotito ate it, of course. In 2007 Lotito died shortly after his 57th birthday of natural causes.

Kid Cuisine Mega Meal 1990s Honestly, I can't remember having these, maybe once if it was on sale; parents were cheap. Were these actually any good? Today they still have them, the other week I thought about buying 1 to try, but I passed. I don't think they are doing to well anyway since they don't really advertise from what I see. Kid Cuisine is a brand of packaged frozen dinners targeted for children's appetites, marketed by ConAgra Foods, Inc., created in 1990.

1913 Advice for Husbands and Wives Two helpul advice books for British married couples, Don'ts For Wives and Don'ts For Husbands, published in 1913, are experiencing a renaissance in sales today. Here are some of the timeless pointers contained on their pages: FOR HUSBANDS: DON'T try to "drive" your wife. You will be much more successful if you "lead" her. DONíT scoff if your wife wants to drive the car. DONíT keep up the ďpoor little womanĒ pose too long. A woman may like to be a plaything for a little while but the novelty soon wears off. DONíT rush out of the house in such a hurry that you havenít time to kiss your wife goodbye. She will grieve over the omission all day. DONíT dwell on the beauty of other women if you know your wife to be sensitive on the point. There is no sense in rubbing sores, although some men seem to find a strange pleasure in it. DONíT spend night after night at your club, leaving your wife alone to count the hours until your return. DONíT forget to buy your wife a pair of gloves occasionally. She will always be pleased to have them. FOR WIVES: DONíT think your husband not ďmanlyĒ because he happens to be short and thin and not very strong. Manliness is not a pure physical quality. DONíT moralize by way of winning back the love that seems to be waning. Make yourself extra charming and arrange delicious dinners which include all your husbandís favorite dishes. DONíT expect your husband to be an angel. You would get very tired of him if he were. DONíT try to dictate to your husband on any subject. He wonít stand for it and there will be trouble. DONíT nauseate your husband with talking ďbabyĒ all the time. As babyís father, he will stand a good deal of it, but remember there are other interests in the world. DONíT be jealous of your husbandís bachelor friends. Let him camp out with them for an occasional weekend if he wants to. He will come back all the fresher and full of appreciation for his home. DONíT say, ďI told you soĒ to your husband, however much you feel tempted to. It does no good and he will be grateful to you for not saying it. DONíT let breakfast be a ďsnatchĒ meal. Your husband often does the best part of his dayís work on it and the engine canít work if you donít stoke it properly.
