There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

People always roll out that one as if it were a trump card in an argument. But it's not strictly true. What is true is that, if you are offered a free lunch you shouldn't assume it actually is free, so have a good sniff around, because there generally is a price involved.

But often enough the price involved is very acceptable. And indeed frequently enough the lunch really is free, in the sense that you aren't the one paying the price.

I'd definitely call the Mudcat a free lunch and a half.
