Book Gorge - A Brief History

Book Gorge is an original creation by BLT.
Gorge - Though it may wrong, rude, or a terrible habit, we do it a lot. The lady who works on the 3rd office floor pops chocolates into her mouth about every two minuets. The guy who works at the local ice cream joint looks like he's taken advantage of his job one too many times. And when your best friend throws a swim party, you eat way too much pizza-you know this because you never sunk to the bottom of the pool before. We tend to gorge ourselves with food, yes, but what about the other kind of food?
Is it possible to gore on words?
The girl at the bookstore proves this theory. She's a walking string bean, with her green dress, her black rimmed glasses, and the ribbons in her hair. For breakfast she eats Shakespeare, for lunch she has Mark Twain, for dinner Jane Austen is a favorite, and dessert is always Tennyson. Is it possible to gore words? Yes, I believe so, and did I also mention that words will always be a 100% fat free?
