vol. 2, number 10, lightly toasted, please.
This one came from a tongue in cheek creation story in which the creator took some clay from the earth and formed it into a person, then baked it. The first attempt failed; it was overcooked and burnt black. So the creator tried again, and this time the person didn't bake long enough and came out sickly white. On the third try, the creator got it right and baked the person perfectly, resulting in a golden tan. Take what you like from all this, but I think the story is charming.
