Right now I'm in Paris, one of the cities in the webMethods Business Integration Forum tour. During one of the breaks, a tremendous selection of finger-foods was served, including duck-pate bites and chocolate prunes. It might sound odd, but it was delicious! The funniest thing I saw looked more like drug paraphanelia than a piece of food; a bulb filled with grapefruit juice with an extruded plastic straw that pierced through a piece of pineapple and sushi. The idea is that you hold the bulb, put the food on the straw into your mouth, and then squeeze the bulb to get a jolt of juice as you start chewing. What will the French think of next?
