How do humans know what’s edible? Nature or nuture? Pink Slime vs GMOs

SO I am going to brave the hypothesis that you can write about Twinkies without having to eat one. Actually I discovered Twinkie image aversion easily overcomes Twinkie the concept, and I don’t just mean examples like the phallic Strangelove … Continue reading

Dit Fromage!

Ah, photography and cheese, together again. In French. New concept, Calendar Girls posing with … CHEESE! It doesn’t translate very well, culturally, or didn’t. “Say Cheese” becomes “Dit Fromage! Dit Fromage!” Warning, the webpage is in French. So for those … Continue reading

Gender Respect in Tabloids & Wrestling

So I figured a way to tie a few concepts into one on the subject of two headlines on Gossip Tabloids in the supermarket check-out lane. National Enquirer headline “Roy, of Siegfried and Roy caught on video soliciting GAY sex!” … Continue reading

The Famous burger not most famous

Once again COLORADO SPRINGS STYLE nominates THE FAMOUS for the city’s best burger. It ran against the usual lineup of respectable dining establishments plus King’s Chef, the token dive, but there were notable omissions worth pointing out. At the crux, … Continue reading

Korean education system beats US

The next time you are in a line of cars wrapped around a fast food outlet showing your interest for a burger. Consider this photograph. These are forty thousand lit candles, held by 40,000 South Koreans who do not want … Continue reading

No more reporting on the beef recall?

The largest beef recall in history has taught us what, so far? That 37 million pounds went to the USDA school lunch program, which was distributed to schools unknown. We quietly presume the USDA had been pawning off the questionable … Continue reading

How many BSE burgers did the kids eat?

What is the extent of the current beef recall? I’ve read that 143 million pounds of beef corresponds to two hamburger patties for each man, woman and child in America. That’s the meat of questionable safety produced by the Westland … Continue reading

Brand name taste is an abstraction

A friend of mine is a restauranteur who by his own admission doesn’t know much about wine. Never the less his wine rep was bringing over a bottle of Chateau d’Yquem for some occasion. I asked my friend if he’d … Continue reading

Crappuccino

What’s a coffee-free coffee? Does it say on the bottle it’s a “Crappuccino?” What is that? It’s not a milk-frapped espresso. Is it a strawberry milkshake? Is it a smoothie? A Yoo-Hoo? A DQ Freeze? Maybe it’s Pepto-ccino.   When … Continue reading
