nutritional musings, 1

So as I’m standing at the counter drizzling greasy-slick chili-sesame oil on my (rather heavily) sea-salted edamame, it occurs to me: I may have just caused Michele Obama and Michael Bloomberg’s heads to explode. At the same time!

— Which, awesome!

  1. Sea-salt, eh?

    How’s your goiter?

  2. Bloomberg’s head can’t explode. You can’t build up internal pressure in a vacuum.

  3. – Picture one of those uber large movie theater popcorn machines, and the milkshake maker behind the counter, both exploding simulteaneously at the speed of light.

    – Lizard licks his eyeball and sex….“In a world where all your carbohydrates and refined sugars are under water….”

  4. Today’s sandwich was a Rebel Rouser: ham, pineapple, house-made BBQ sauce, bacon, and peanut butter on grilled Italian bread. Unbelievably good.

    Dude is a freakin’ sandwich artist.

    Souper Sammies.

  5. “Bloomberg versus the Soup Nazi death match”….

    ….Film at 11….

  6. “….Spealing in Ohio yesterday in his strongest, and longest campaign address, president Obama said…”Mister Romney has a vision for America that would take us back to the economy of a decade ago…..I have a different vision going forward to the 1950’s where we settle that 38th parrallel question once and for all, increas taxes on the rich making more than 15 thousand a year so they pay their fair share, re-ignite the arms race and cold war with Russia to bolster industrial production, build more prefab homes so every government worker can afford a home, resurect Elvis and animate him in 3D to invigorate the youth, and call on all Americans to spit on Adlai for the childrens…. Retro Forward!”

  7. Dear sweet Jumping Jeebus. I just got an email from our HR dept. with the subject “You’re invited: Navigating Life Events – Bullying”. It’s an hour long US-wide webcast to help us combat bullying in the workplace.

    We are indeed a nation of pussies.

  8. What did you do now, Darth?

  9. I got an inferior and inauthentic cheesesteak sandwich from a local chain called Texadelphia that was operated by two guys who looked like they were trying to bring back the faux seventies mid-90’s era “Spin Doctors” look.

    It was pretty good.

    Y’know, if you’ve never been to Pat’s or Geno’s and had the REAL thing.

    And I obviously haven’t.

  10. Never having been to Philadelphia myself, my idea of a good cheesesteak would be one from the Food Factory in Fairbanks.

    Which I haven’t had in eight years…

  11. ” “You’re invited: Navigating Life Events – Bullying”. It’s an hour long US-wide webcast to help us combat bullying in the workplace. ”

    Of course the deep irony is that mandatory anti-whatever training in the workplace IS a form of bullying against employees… designed to to help workplaces avoid or minimize legal bullying.

  12. – Darth, send them a reply saying you’d really like to watch it but your boss said he’d punch you in the head (again) if he catches you watching video’s on company time…..

  13. I do not like cheesesteaks, and I have been to both Pat’s and Geno’s. I’ll tell you what I miss here in Okie-land: decent cold cuts, pierogies, real bread, olives, and a million and one types of cheese and pasta.

  14. – Bummblrfuck’s vision for Amerikkka….. Forward!

  15. I may have just caused Michele Obama and Michael Bloomberg’s heads to explode. At the same time!

    Stifling joke about when the last time someone pulled that off, as it may cause problems for our gracious host.

  16. Was the edamame organic, fair trade, cruelty-free, non-GMO, sustainably farmed? Are you sure the heads haven’t regenerated?

  17. Another nutritional musing: I just saw what I think is the NY State Senator who is not Chuck Schumer say that food stamps were a good investment, and that for every dollar spent on food stamps you got $1.70 back. That’s nutritional SCIENCE.

  18. say that food stamps were a good investment, and that for every dollar spent on food stamps you got $1.70 back

    that’s a sanfrannan talking point

  19. Vanderboegh and Codrea, the two men who originally broke the story now known as Operation Fast and Furious, will discuss claims from “multiple previously highly credible sources” that at least one, and possibly two high-ranking sources from within the Justice Department have “come in from the cold” seeking whistleblower status and “hold the keys to the kingdom”…with knowledge of Eric Holder’s actions before and after” the 4 February 2011 DOJ letter denying that the DOJ and its subordinate agencies knew about ‘gunwalking’.”

    In a second bombshell revelation, Vanderboegh reports that murdered ICE agent Jaime Zapata was investigating Fast and Furious weapons—despite Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s sworn testimony that there was no connection.


  20. On the heels of Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s promise to spend tens of millions in efforts to defeat Barack Obama in 2012, comes Chicago based billionaire and 2008 Obama supporter Ken Griffin’s public move to stand firmly with Mitt Romney and against Barack Obama.


  21. – Why not just call it “Target tower”……

  22. Although the oral arguments on the ACA spanned six hours over three days, she noted that a case cited during those arguments — McCullough v. Maryland — featured oral arguments that spanned nine days over two months.

    Ginsburg noted that one ACA-related question the court must decide is whether the whole law must fall if the individual mandate is unconstitutional — “or may the mandate be chopped, like a head of broccoli, from the rest of it?”

  23. Juan Williams trying gamely to defend Holder: : “….That’s what real reporters do, rather than bloggers – go out and talk directly to government officials instead of just writing about it.”

    Michelle Malkin: “Real reporters don’t act as apologists for corrupt admintration officials. We do our jubs and report the truth.”

  24. Interesting menu at Souper Sammies. That godfather burger with the broccoli looks interesting.

  25. – Well I don’t know about the rest of you, but I for one am laying in the appropriate buffalo wings and brewski in preperation for this evening’s Mefastunt, although I must admit the excitement in anticipation is tempered with the knowledge that said hughwire act by Wallenda’s spawn will be dumbed down by the presence of a ‘safery harness tether’.

    – ABC has stated they will stop broadcasting should Nik stumble or remove the harness….whimps….

    – So no road kill thrills, but still, Awesume!

  26. Salted edame, that’s nothing. Today I noticed a whole chicken 4X as expensive as an ordinary chicken and I thought to myself, “Damn, that sounds like my kind of chicken,” so I read the package and it says not in a cage and no hormones and vegetarian diet and the chickens get storybook time every day and I’m all whoa sign me up and then I got home and chopped it up like a mad chicken chopper upper and brined it in as little water as possible to cover and a whole goddamn cup of salt.


    Like that.

  27. – I got a notice from SDG&E stating that they were going to shut down the power for some maintainance tonight at 11 pm, so it looks like I’ll get in just under the wire.

  28. Last night I had tomago over ohm rice with white and brown sauce on either side and a salad. It sound fancy but is just a simple meal.
