Doctor: You have an unusual combination of typhoid, smallpox and ebola. Patient: Ohmygod! Is there anything you can do? Doctor: (Chuckling) Of course, we keep you in a special room on a diet of pizzas, pancakes and papadoms. Patient: Does that work? Doctor: No, but those are the only things we can slide under the door.
In fact, now there are many more dietary possibilities for this poor man. Flat food is the new black - 'Many foods benefit from a good pounding and leveling.' Many people too. I'm all for two-dimensional food. Posh restaurants have been making 3-D food towers since the eighties. Flat is the way ahead. Up in Norfolk, of course, we've had flat food for years. It is known as roadkill.
