Amy, don't read this entry

The NYT has a mouth-watering article about four great barbecue places near Austin. I've been to the Salt Lick in Driftwood several times, and I'm here to tell you, it's worth every single artery-clogging calorie. I'm Pavloving right now just thinking about it. One of the many great things about the Salt Lick is that for $13.95 it's all you can eat. You can always start that diet tomorrow, you know...

Now now now... everybody knows that the Pavlov experiments were with a bell, not a copy of the New York Times. In fact, the last thing you want a dog doing is slobbering on a copy of the New York Times when he's fetching it. Makes it hard to read the front page, you know.

I'll let you, Harry, and the New York Times work out the experiment. I'm hungry.
