      Er, Jason, perhaps you missed that I was punning on the traditional "flaring nostrils" in romance novels.

      Personally, I'd take knockwursts to nostrils anytime.

        Yes, I know what youre gonna say... "A lot of people, Including myself, like those kind of novels!"

        I know.

            The (now deleted) posting you're referring to was from an old "friend" of the site who's continuing to express his/her unhealthy obsession with chowhound.com.

              Oh, OK. For a second there I thought I was losing my mind. Then realised it must have been a troll.
