I beg to differ. Is it not obvious that anyone who eats anchovies on pizza 
has had their ment facilities so impaired as to not have proper judgement?
how then could they be a contester when they could not make the right
decision over such a momentous thing as anchovies? something minor like 
S&P may be within their grasp, but the overall startegy of the contest? I
doubt it.

Besides is it not obvious that Mr. Walsh has an inate fear of the LaTex
Rookies? As such I can barely wonder that he also would like anchovies.
