    I only eat carrots, if they're cut the right way. Three or four inch cross cut pieces for stew, cut length wise with pot roast, julienned for soup, grated for salad, never, ever diced in anything. There are no exceptions to the rules. Well there's one exception, if I'm a guest, eating someone else's cooking. In that case, I will try to discreetly mash them with my fork.

                            He's complaining about the fact that when he went anywhere, people recognized him and things turned into a circus. But his friend Robert Berks said, "But deep down, if he really hadn’t wanted any publicity, he would have gotten his hair cut and worn ordinary suits."

                                That's correct. Edgar Howe was the founder of the Cold Clams franchise at Redondo Beach.

                                Elias Howe invented the machine that sews two halves of a clamshell together, which was much appreciated by all who do not like sandy fried clams. When he was praised for his invention, he merely said "shucks."
