In fairness it did say it was really astringent on the menu, and I did ask for it to be made extra astringent, and the waiter came out to tell me the soup was going to be very astringent, and I was wearing a T-shirt that said “I Love Astringent Foods”, and I was known to the waiter as the head of the Nottingham branch of the Astringent Food Fanclub but still.

I came here expecting an obvious April Fool but it turns out you were astringent me along the whole time.
This is the best thread I’ve ever made.
