Yeah, it’s me who’s been doing that.

I should have let you known earlier. Sorry, my bad. Rude of me not to keep you in the loop. We’re cool now, though?

In any case, looking forward to eating more of your skin.

sincerely yours,

    Eating my skin, huh?

    No, no. That’s all right *sigh*

    I guess I wasn’t using it anyway…

  • 2 Ninjew on Jan 28, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Thanks a LOT Bill.

    I’ve been told that beauty is skin deep, and now you want to take THAT away from me.

    Does your evil know no bounds?

    Thanks, Bill. You’re filling a valuable niche in the ecosystem, consuming dead flakes of skin that fall off the human body and typically form sustenance for dust-mites and other microscopic insects.

    I suspect, though, that the dust-mites are a bit pissed at you stealing their grub. But hey, what are they gonna do about it? Write their congressmen? I’d like to see that.

    I, at the very least, hope your pairing my skin with some good wine. Perhaps a nice Shiraz or a Pinot Noir?

  • 5 R.A. Roth on Jan 28, 2008 at 4:08 pm

    Well that’s no skin off my ass.

    No, wait…it IS skin off my ass!

    Thanks, Bill. It was getting kind of voluminous.

    Oh yeah? Well, I spit on your grave.

  • 7 Nate on Jan 28, 2008 at 4:24 pm

    Ha! Joke’s on you – I haven’t bathed in weeks!

  • 8 washington on Jan 28, 2008 at 4:40 pm

  • 9 Roper on Jan 28, 2008 at 4:49 pm

    No problem. I suggest you pan sear my skin with chanterelles and woodiers. I bid you peace.

  • 10 Brian O. on Jan 28, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Ah hah! Ah hah! I posted this on the suggest a trax forum! It’s about the early years of the Atkins diet, yes?

  • 11 Brian O. on Jan 28, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    Oh, and you can get these for $1 a pop.

  • 12 mrbasehart on Jan 28, 2008 at 5:36 pm

    Don’t worry about it Bill.

    By the way, if you like your skin crispy, I have a hideous flaking disorder and could provide with a couple of bowls a day.

  • 13 Walter on Jan 28, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    Is it better if i moisturize?

  • 14 Adam on Jan 28, 2008 at 5:40 pm

    I have eaten the
    that was in
    the icebox
    and which you were probably
    for breakfast

    Forgive me
    it was delicious
    so tough
    and so stringy

    Ah… I was wondering why I felt so suddenly cold.

    Oh, and why I was in screaming blind pain due to all of my nerve endings being exposed to the air, causing me to curl up in a fetal position, unable even to sob as the salty tears would feel like pouring sulfuric acid into a paper cut. The pain is so intense that I would even rather be watching a Hellraiser movie.

  • 16 Ninjew on Jan 28, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    Wouldn’t it be easier to pop by the 7-11 and get some pork rinds?

  • 17 Bill Corbett on Jan 28, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    Sorry. It’s a bad habit, I know.

  • 18 ShutterBun on Jan 28, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    I’m ashamed to admit I actually have this “film” on DVD. It would have to be several orders of magnitude better to have been MST3K fodder. On the other hand, “I Drink Your Blood,” which was on a double-bill with it at one point, would have been perfect.

    And, on the chance that we’re playing $25,000 Pyramid, I will answer: “Things not to say at Thanksgiving Dinner!”

  • 19 Bill Corbett on Jan 28, 2008 at 6:08 pm

    Wm. Carlos Williams’ skin-eating poetry isn’t for everyone, sure.

    But at least he didn’t write odes to his bowel movements:

    (…Did he?)

  • 20 Meredith on Jan 28, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    That’s okay.

    Although now I feel bad for not mentioning my poisonous skin disease earlier.

  • 21 anthom on Jan 28, 2008 at 7:12 pm

    That double feature sounds perfect for our church movie night!

  • 22 Dallas on Jan 28, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    Wait, that was you?
    Oh man.

    Hey, will someone tell Kevin I said “Never mind”?

  • 23 Mr. Slick on Jan 28, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Isn’t that always the way? Ya go nuts with the skin eatin!

  • 24 Mr. Slick on Jan 28, 2008 at 9:56 pm

    What kind of wine do you serve with skin?

  • 25 NotMerrittStone on Jan 28, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    I used to have a t-shirt with the poster from that double-bill.

    “2 Great Blood Horrors to Rip Out Your Guts!” Possibly the best tag-line ever.

  • 26 Eddie Colton on Jan 28, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    Bill, what have I told you about fibbing? If you eat my skin, why is my room COVERED in dust?

  • 27 Bill Corbett on Jan 29, 2008 at 3:53 am


  • 28 Leigh Ann on Jan 29, 2008 at 8:01 am

    It’s ok. This guy has plenty left over.

  • 29 Brian O. on Jan 29, 2008 at 1:00 pm

    That reminds me, did anyone else, as a kid, after a bad sunburn, have the nasty habit of eating their skin after peeling it off? TMI, sure, but I bet some of you did it.

  • 30 Mary Arline on Jan 29, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    I did.
