How do you eat a mod, anyways? Would you just eat the hard drive? That doesn't sound very satisfying. There's not nearly as much protein in a hard drive as there is an intern. As long as the intern is fresh, anyways. Stale interns, or spoiled as little Billy calls them, are not very pleasant to eat. In fact, little Billy often gets very angry when you try to feed him spoiled interns. By the way, in the office every intern is called Tony. Tonys are often branded by numbers instead of names, because it's easier for our Western outsourcees to understand numbers rather than complex things like "tony with buckteeth" or "partly digested tony". Simplicity is key, and in our closet-infested edge-rounded office, you really need to avoid any more confusion than what already plagues us. It's amazing we get anything done in the first place.
Also, there's a certain benefit to being able to brand all curses with "tony" appended or prefixed to them. Because names are desensitized through numbers, any accurate curse involving tony, like "Damnit, Tony!" or, my favorite, "Blast processing, Tony!" is always accurate and doesn't need any silly and/or embarrassing backpedalling due to the confusion of names. I also don't think that the average intern is any different than a zombie. They both lack real individuality but hunger for living meat, and they are both easily disposed of in an incinerator.
I'm still trying to wonder where the eating of digital information comes into all this, though. I've spent an eternity pondering this question.
