Fire the Canon

We read Agatha Christie’s Christmas mystery (Christery) classic, and share our favorite flavors.  Spoilers for this decades old book abound!  An old man is found dead in a giant pool of blood, after what seems to be a struggle.  Which of his innumerable children did the deed?!  Rachel builds suspense.  Jackie is fine with being either friends or more than friends.  Theo becomes a random word generator. 

Topics include: umami, Christeriousness, David Suchet, little gray cells, Wilson’s baby, creaminess, Egg Mode, English gayness or lack thereof, Big Mouth Billy Bass, Gregor Mendel a.k.a. Carolus Linnaeus, Carrie, vampires, and bacon bits.
