Those reviews are spot on. And this is a bargain as the price in April was $490. Now only $470.

But sorry, no wood toilet seat is shipped with this book.

FLASH: You should also look at the section "Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed". Important pointers there such as this one:
Fresh Whole Rabbit: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

That's not "whole rabbit"! The head is missing. In Europe, the skinned rabbit is sold with the head, eyeballs left in. I saw this at a Carrefour in Monaco.

I personally find no problem with this. People nowadays, particularly in the US, may think of chicken as a piece of skinned and boneless breast. My own children do not even eat any piece with bones in it, such as a thigh or drumstick. Do they not know where the chicken breast comes from? Picked off a fruit tree?
