You know those little silver balls that decorate cookies? It seems that they're made from silver. And silver stays in the body forever. So if you eat enough of them you're liable to turn blue. Of course, you'd have to commence eating them nonstop today and, possibly, by next Christmas you might notice a bluish hue.
Thanks to this food fascist, however, that's unlikely to happen. He's started a crusade to keep the confectionary decorations off the store shelves by suing the pants off anyone who sells them. Aren't you glad Mark Pollack is around to protect you from such dangers?
Thanks to Virginia Postrel.
