This 1942 Life ad for "Morrell EZ-Serve Liver Loaf" manages to make what amounts to pate sound like something really, really revolting (perhaps because of the ad's mention of sister products like Tongue Loaf). Notably, Liver Loaf hails from Radar O'Reilly hometown of Ottumwa, Iowa -- perhaps it was a favorite of the M*A*S*H writers.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
