As times toughen in the Motor City, it seems appropriate that we assist readers in the selection and preparation of inexpensive, but wholesome meals.

The following recipe may appear inedible at first glance, but be assured this dish has been taste-tested by Fifth Estate chefs and found to be well worth devouring. Bon Apetite!


Often thought to be meagre and unrewarding as a dessert, when prepared correctly it will obtain a culinary position comparable to any traditional after-dinner sweet with a richness and body all its own.

To begin preparation secure:

at least 15 small to medium leninists (maoists, stalinists, or trotskyists will all taste the same)

After your butcher prepares the leninists for cooking, place them in a slow oven overnight and they should wither away to almost nothing but a dry powder.

Note: We have found that often rather than withering away, the carcasses tended to become bloated and oversized. If this begins to occur, simply puncture and deflate. Leninists can be obtained around college campuses, attending boring meetings, or at factory gates. Further note: close observation easily distinguishes them from actual workers.

Take the dried leninist remains and place in a crushed Billy Graham cracker crust pie shell along with:

sliced bananas

1 cup corn syrup.

Cover with whipped cream. Chill and serve, but be careful; anything more than a very small serving will make one sick.
