There's one Empoprises Rule that I haven't gotten around to finishing yet. I got really close last December:
I have yet to formally publish the Empoprises Rule of Fair Food that I have previously mentioned, but I will reveal that part of the rule involves the universal use of the suffix "on a stick."
