File Under Food Porn

Because Americans aren't fat enough, KFC has announced a bacon and cheese sandwich that throws out the bun and replaces it with fried chicken breasts. Clear evidence that the fast food companies of American are continuing their policy of MAD --- Mutually Assured Diabetes.

I'm not saying I wouldn't try it. I am a quasi-journalist. Plus it's got bacon.

I'm weak. Someone help me.


We were dubious when we first read that Kentucky Fried Chicken was coming out with a new sandwich that does away with the bread in favor of two fried fillets. And that the "sandwich" part of the sandwich involved was made of cheese, something called Colonel's sauce .. and bacon?

Congress Deadlocked Over How To Not Provide Health Care

WASHINGTON—After months of committee meetings and hundreds of hours of heated debate, the United States Congress remained deadlocked this week over the best possible way to deny Americans health care.

"Both parties understand that the current system is broken," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Monday. "But what we can't seem to agree upon is how to best keep it broken, while still ensuring that no elected official takes any political risk whatsoever. It’s a very complicated issue."

The legislative stalemate largely stems from competing ideologies deeply rooted along party lines. Democrats want to create a government-run system for not providing health care, while Republicans say coverage is best denied by allowing private insurers to make it unaffordable for as many citizens as possible.

Stone 09.09.09 Vertical Epic Ale

Chocolate + Orange = Stone 09.09.09 Vertical Epic Ale

The last few Stone Vertical Epic Ales have been lighter in color, but this year’s Ale is a sinfully dark Belgian Porter, and instead of using American hops like last year, we’re using two European hop strains: Perle and Magnum. Staying true to the series, this year’s batch also comes packed with some unique, mouth-watering ingredients. If you follow us on Twitter, you already know what some of them are. Check out what we tweeted on June 1st.

Look out for Stone 09.09.09 Vertical Epic Ale on Wednesday, September 9, 2009, and stay tuned for a detailed homebrew recipe.

She Was Angry From All The Disappointment

Perhaps nothing on my trip to Europe was as disappointing at the Mona Lisa. The swarm around it makes it very difficult to see. And the thing is so tiny, you really do need to get up close to see it. Leave it to a Russian chick to express everyone's anger.
