Self Harming Food

This lunchtime I punctured my index finder on a particularly sharp bread crust shard. Then I bit into a Toblerone and damaged the roof of my mouth whilst the remainder of the bar tried to enter my nostrils.

As a newbie in CH any other foods I should be wary of?

Are you, perchance, a newbie to solids?

Or just a delicate little flower?

That said, I sometimes find that a particularly large crusty baguette grazes the sides of my mouth.

Well, I'm firmly convinced that all the yummy cheese here is waging a conspiracy to steadily increase the size of my a**.

If you eat enough Sour Maoams they'll remove the roof of your mouth.

Re: Self Harming Food

Think I'll avoid the Sour Maoams then. I'm normally good with solids, obviously just having one of those days

Are foods sentient enough to exhibit self-harming behaviour?

I never figured out how to eat Toblerone without breaking it first. I went a few years without touching them though after I saw this .

I can attest that this works just fine. I freaked out a waitress in Neuchatel once by ordering a mixed salad and large beer to go with my fondue (gotta find the little pleasures in life here).

Funnily enough, that was proven by an official BMJ research team recently!
