It's a Human Thing

We've all been told  black people love fried chicken . Whatever the source of that stereotype, I have a serious problem with it. Sure, it's racist; but it's also quite narrow-minded. Don't ALL people love fried chicken. There are those Veggie fools who refuse to let themselves enjoy the full potential of food, but they can be of any race. Point is, whatever the color of your skin, we all share the bucket of KFC gene (or Popeye's if you know what's up). For the purposes of illustration, let's take a moment to look at a few international cuisines. Many of the signature or classical dishes involve fried chicken. Italian: Chicken Parmigiana. Fried chicken, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, delicious. French: Coq au Vin. Fried chicken, pearl onions, salt pork, mushrooms, mirepoix, red wine, an assload of free time. Chinese: Fried Chicken Wings. Fried chicken, duh. If you belong to any of the above nationalities, it's likely that you grew up with an a

How's it Taste?

Because I know you've all been waiting to tell me how much my blog sucks, I fixed the Comment feature. You can even post anonymously. What could be better?


I've been seeing more and more cars recently (namely Subarus) that have a PZEV badge on the back:   PZEV, as you probably can't read above, stands for Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle . It actually means something and there are guidelines and stuff, but none of that's really important. What's important is that PZEV is a bit of a misnomer. And of course by bit, I mean massive. Because you know what part of zero is? Yeah, zero.


I bought a pack of Columbus Calabrese Salame from Trader Joe's the other day. One of the bullet points on the package says "Slow Aged for Optimum Flavor." Slow aged? Maybe it's just me, but I'd expect a company that's figured out how to alter the space-time continuum to use it for something more productive than making salami taste fantastic.


Scott Boras wanted a six-year contract for Manny. A lot of people in the media said it was to protect him from losing money in the face of declining performance at the end of the career. I think he knew Manny had been juicing for years and thought it was only a matter of time until the truth came out. Those forearms were always suspicious.

Cooookie Cooookie Cooookie!

Shizz and I were discussing this over Celtics the other night, and it's definitely worth sharing. Is that enough of a shoutout? I don't understand how anyone in the world can justify buying Thin Mints from Girl Scouts. I'm not about to start bashing Girl Scouts or supporting non-profits, don't worry. But don't they understand that Girl Scouts also sell Samoas (or Caramel "typo" deLites for the political correct amongst us)? Samoas are at least 116% better than Thin Mints, are sold exclusively by Girl Scouts, and may in fact be the best cookie in the world. They're even the SAME PRICE. CAPITALS. SAME PRICE. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but a box of those doesn't stand a chance in my house. Either Samoas are the best value money can buy, or Thin Mints are the worst. I know some people actually prefer Thin Mints to Samoas, but still want to support a good cause. In these cases Samoas should be purchased, sold on the black market (I know I


If two sitcoms are created by the same people, have suspiciously similar storylines, and are aired back-to-back on the same channel, why bother wasting time coming up two titles? Someone should tell TBS that Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Meet the Browns are the same show...and that both suck.
