“Food usually tastes better if an animal died to make it.”

Sad, but probably true. One only has to compare french fries cooked in vegetable oil vs. fries cooked in duck fat, the way god intended. (An approximation is to compare McDonald’s fries of today, fried in vegetable oil, versus the fries of yesteryear, which were fried in rendered beef lard. Not that I’m advocating patronizing McDonald’s…especially now that their fries suck.)

“Finally, a champagne brunch with enough champagne!”

(The “brunch” was actually a champagne tasting, i.e., lots of champagne, no food. We just happened to go there at noon, so “brunch”…)
