Bizarre and harmless, May 22, 2011
by Dominic Delabruere (U.S.A.)

"Dinnertime" is a single puzzle that presents itself as a sort of allegory for a fundamental problem of the human condition -- how to eat without killing oneself. The solution is a little odd(Spoiler - click to show) and basically identical to the solution of a minor puzzle in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. But it's worth the few minutes you'll put into it because of the cheekily bizzarre descriptions and responses.
