I don't eat people for lunch! I treasure Aaron's quote as a perfect example
of how contradicting the first axiom works in real life. The "most of all

Through the E-prime lens: the word "is" appears six times in two sentences.
Masterpiece. Aaron, please don't be careful (most of me does not exist anyway).
