Top Chef: Chicago winner Stephanie Izard just opened a restaurant in Chicago with an item on the menu named "Pig Face."

Pig Face is a goddamned pig face, torn off the pig, snout and all. The pig's tongue is then rolled up in the middle of the pig face and wrapped tightly in cheese cloth rendering something akin to a hell sausage.

This unholy talisman is then braised for a day, sliced into innocent-looking bologna-shaped pieces and served to you with a sunny-side up egg on top.

The egg seems to be saying, "Hey! Hi there! Nothing sinister here! Happiness! Joy! I am not hiding the face flesh of a swine ripped from its brain pan and wrapped around its own tongue! [source]

Idea:

Busts of Ndamukong Suh and C.J. Spiller created with Pig Face for consumption in luxury boxes at Ford Field and Ralph Wilson Stadium. Or… Who did the Bears draft in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft? Oh that's right. NO ONE. [grumbles]

Investigation Discovery (this is a television channel?) is developing Talent Behind Bars and Dancing Behind Bars, singing and dancing competitions for America's incarcerated citizens.

No hardened murderers will be permitted to participate — just those convicted of crimes like selling crack. [source]

Well, in that case…

The only appealing prison competition is Ultimate Fighting Behind Bars. Only allow hardened murderers to participate, and only voluntarily, so that if someone dies or is severely injured… Hey, he or she was/is a hardened murderer – who volunteered! Them's the breaks.


Wondering how the intensity of Internet passion for Scott Pilgrim will translate in the physical world. This is feeling SERENITY to me. [source]

Or Watchmen. Or Snakes on a Plane.

I feel like no one on the Internet watches Hung, but it nets higher ratings than Mad Men, which I feel like everyone on the Internet watches.

To be fair, Hung's ratings are undoubtedly inflated by True Blood viewers waiting for Entourage to begin. HBO was wise to sandwich Bored to Death between Boardwalk Empire and Eastbound and Down this fall.

    I'm curious, Jon, what do you think of that Sub Pop merchandising scheme?

      I think that scheme is unofficially the case already.
