"Pound pastrami, can kraut, six bagels--bring home for Emma."

Ring any bells?

No bells, but all was revealed on Wikipedia. I guess the writer of your scrap is heralding their own apocalypse (much as I love pork pies myself). Where is the broccoli - or '5 a day' as we say over here.

My own ...(picks up nearest scrap of paper) - 'Troilus exclusion' - in neat, 3 times overscored box.

Okay, it's the infamous "blessed shopping list" from the novel "A Canticle For Liebowitz." And yes, Emile B., I agree pork pies are gross, but did you note the "British bent" of the shopping list? In England, almost anything in a pie is yummy! No sarcasm intended, N50!
