The Ramp Festival is always a lot of fun, and ramps themselves rock. Just ask Chris James, who recently devoted a week's worth of really great posts to the wild delicacy.
But everyone knows that it's adults who dig ramps the most, for the nostalgia as much as for the taste. Kids I know-- particularly teens who are of dating age-- don't often eat ramps because of the unpleasant odor that permeates every pore of one's being.
Which leads me to what I'm certain Ramp Festival Queen Caitlin Sharpe is thinking as this picture is being shot:
"Take the pic already, willya? This is as close to my mouth as it's gonna get!"
