Q29. What are you when your body is not you?

A. A piece of cake.

_SRH0914a_thumb - Copy

A piece of cake,
It is neither soft nor tough.
How deplorable!
Numerous people have tried to eat it so far,
Few of whom swallowed it.
Countless people have tried chewing it,
But no tooth-mark is left on it.

If I were asked the question,
I would answer, “Why do you ask me the taste of the food you are chewing?”
