Happy Bloomsday, everyone!! I will never forget cracking open Ulysses in college and finding myself face-to-face with “stately, plump Buck Mulligan” and his dressing gown and shaving bowl.

Here’s a delicious quote from the novel to brighten up your day:

Mr Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencods’ roes. Most of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.
