Recited from memory by: Leon Arnott

The author writes:

When I first discovered couscous, I was somewhat taken aback by the notion that until very recently, each grain of couscous ever consumed had been hand-rolled from powdered wheat. The sheer amount of labour involved in the creation of such a meal made me very thankful for mass-production. It was in this vein of thought that I hit upon the couscous nanomachines, and, from their inevitable rebellion and containment, the Edible Desert that we're all familiar with.
