Wendell Berry Promotes Edible Bible
Citing the destructive waste of resources inherent in the Bible-printing industry, Christian environmental activist Wendell Berry announced Tuesday the launch of his new product: a collection of edible Scripture.
The pages, constructed of whipped goat’s milk and rice paper and made by the author himself on his Kentucky farm, dissolve tastily in a reader’s mouth.
“It’s just like a communion wafer,” Berry explained, “except imprinted with text written in the blood of a ewe named Delilah, which I raised from birth and whose fur I gently stroked as I held her in the final moments of life.”
Demand for such a product is clearly high, and Berry anticipates increased sales over the next year.
