Eating your words

There is weird news and then there is the story about an Edmonton woman named Maggie who literally has a craving for a taste of the Sun.

Her seven-year appetite for strips of pages torn from the Edmonton Sun recently landed her in hospital where doctors found a ball of paper blocking her esophagus.

But read Nicki Thomas' story about the senior citizen in today's Edmonton Sun. Definitely one for the books.

"I tried the (Edmonton) Journal," Maggie told Nicki during an interview. "It wasn't as good."

We can picture Sun ad execs working overtime to exploit this unique use of the Sun.

"The Sun - it's good enough to eat."

Pass the ketchup. Mike Strobel's column looks mighty appetizing.
