It's still hot to be an invasivore, chowing down on invasive species to help balance the ecosystem. Cleveland even had a food festiva l showcasing ways to prepare the delicious-sounding invasive plant garlic mustard. (This is going out on a limb, but ... maybe use it as a condiment?)

And he decided to skip the slicing and marinating and just inhale the thing, whole, in one blink-and-you-miss-it gulp.
