“While Broughton told police he remembered participating in a drinking game with fellow members of the Pi Kappa Alpha chapter, he denied having an alcohol enema. Police concluded otherwise from evidence they found at the frat house, including boxes of Franzia Sunset Blush wine.” [Schelzig/AP]
It’s not enough that some kid almost died from booze up his butt, but that booze had to be a box of fucking FRANZIA.
This is an actual photo I took at the egg section at Other Avenues, a co-op grocery in my nabe.
The ducks have reason for alarm, as the mountain lion vs duck story has gone badly (for the duck) before. Ugh, do not do what I just did and google “mountain lion duck,” there are some pretty gnarly pictures out there.
“There’s a girl in the commercial, smiling and eating a taco. She’s gorgeous. Maybe I’m wrong, but she’s awfully light-skinned, and looks pretty polished, for the middle-of-nowhere Alaska.” [Elliott/NYT]
Seriously, can we eat ANYTHING anymore? Both published today:
“A DNA test has revealed that cantaloupe from Chamberlain Farms in Owensville, Indiana is the source of at least some of the salmonella responsible for an outbreak that sickened people in 21 states and killed two Kentucky residents” [Jaslow/CBS]
“Recent cases of salmonella infection in California are part of a cluster of cases in several states and Canada that appear to be linked to tainted mangoes, health officials say. At least 73 Californians have been sickened in recent weeks by salmonella Braenderup, according to the California Department of Public Health.” [Trounson/LA Times]
According to the USDA, “Salmonella is usually transmitted to humans by eating foods contaminated with animal feces.” So maybe I should have headlined this “Animal Poop Is Trying To Kill You.” But you probably knew poop was out to get you already.
“For me, the real problem with the Pizzabon is, for all of the company rhetoric about wanting ‘to innovate to satisfy the demands of old customers and to create some new ones,’ and wanting customers ‘to find everything they want in one place,’ I never DIDN’T go to Cinnabon because they didn’t offer a savory snack version that tasted like a pizza.” [Brock/Serious Eats]
When Cinnabon announced that at least one location would have a pizza offering, the internet (as it does) hadmanythoughts.
Serious Eats’ Todd Brock went beyond the press release reblog to try the chain’s creation at Atlanta’s Cumberland Mall (which is the only place they are served thus far). His review damns the Pizzabon with faint praise, in my estimation.
