Other unique combinations are the "Chocolate Chip Cookie Burger," which is a burger with a cookie [inside]; and the "Pancake Burger." [source]
The bun seems redundant.
Anyone know of an eatery that offers a burger with two cookies as the bun, like a cookie Luther?
Jon: way to rep one of america's fattest cities Steven: it's the mexican food, i think Jon: mexican food can be healthy Steven: why would i want healthy mexican? Steven: you're probably the type that likes wheat tortillas Steven: eww
The Puppy Channel was a short-lived American cable television channel whose programming consisted entirely of video footage of puppies.
Dan FitzSimons came up with the idea when he was watching the O.J. Simpson murder case during the daytime and kept flipping through the channels during lulls in the trial only to see nothing was on but game shows, soaps, and reruns. FitzSimons thought "Something else is necessary."
41% of people in focus group surveys said they would prefer watching the channel to CNBC and 37% preferred it to TBS. [source]
Jon: Mike pitched an Adam Riff™ podcast to me. Rory: Didn't you develop one three years ago? Jon: Yup. It floundered, though, like so many of my grander ideas – the Canadian television website, the Slaughter DVD, the Cribsheet mobile app, the quarterly themed magazine… [sigh] Little Red Hen I am I am.
Jon: Also, I haaaate the sound of my voice.
Jon: You know how orchestras play off lengthy speeches at awards shows? If I ever record a podcast, I want you to listen in and play off any conversation that bores you. Just fade in some classical music on your end.
I'm surprised that a podcast festival doesn't exist yet. Part film festival, part music festival…
For the sixth year, AMC Theatres will show all the "best picture" Oscar nominees as a day-long marathon.
The sadist in me would begin the marathon with The Tree of Life, followed by War Horse and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
A woman who eats 900 cat treats a day, a woman addicted to her 38KKK breasts, a woman who has been snorting baby powder for over 10 years, a woman who eats tape, a woman who drinks five bottles of nail polish a day — I suppose there was nowhere to go but down after last season's woman who eats her husband's cremated remains.
Ronnie White, a Navy veteran, can meet a conference room full of strangers and minutes later recall every person's name. Nelson Dellis, a software developer, can remember the order of a shuffled deck of playing cards in just a minute. Brad Zupp, a clown, can juggle and memorize computer-generated numbers at the same time.
It just premiered at Slamdance, and will screen at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival next.
Socrates would say that Gob's worries about the next illusion, Lindsay's worries about finding a suitable partner in adultery, and Tobias's fears of being nude all fail to consider what is really important. Our crucial concern should always come down to one question: Am I being moral? [source]
On the future of public libraries:
If they digitize their materials, all books would be available on demand, though I imagine you still might have to wait to borrow eBooks, as the alternative would undercut sales.
The Year of the Dragon, the Chinese-iest of Chinese zodiac years, begins today.
"Jon, do you have any green shirts?"
"Green shirts? What am I, a Ducks fan?"
"Nothing. Uhhh, yes, I have a few green shirts."
"You need to wear a green shirt on Monday, and a green sweater or jacket, if you wear a sweater or jacket."
"Green tops. Got it."
"And you need to wear blue pants, and blue underwear."
My mother is into Chinese astrology.
"This is a dire year for you, Jon."
"I know. I turn 30 in October."
"No, I mean, the Dragon is least compatible with the Dog. Do you have any green cord?"
"Every day this year, you need to tie green cord around your waist, like a belt, to counter the Dragon. You can wear a green bracelet instead, if you prefer."
"Also, you can't eat seafood on Monday, or chicken eggs."
—How does a teapot birth a cup?
—The teapot and the cup were humans who were turned into a teapot and cup by a witch.
—How considerate of the witch to turn them into congruous items.
—The teapot sounds rather old to be the cup's mother. What's the story? Is he adopted? Was he conceived with a donated egg?
—What if he remained a cup? Would he become a teapot as he aged, like a caterpillar becomes a butterfly? Or would he be tragically trapped inside the body of a cup for the rest of his life? Does anthropomorphic porcelain even age? If not, would you rather be a mortal human or an immortal teapot?
Kate Beckinsale's name belies her filmography. I associate her with Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett, but she's basically an English Evangeline Lilly.
A cornerback named Geno Smith committed to Alabama, ensuring at least six contiguous years of black dudes named Geno Smith playing Division I college football.
I heard a DJ on terrestrial radio refer to "Niggas in Paris" as just "Paris."
What's wrong with substituting "negroes" for "niggas"? "Negroes in Paris." I think "negro" is less offensive than "coloured people," which the NAACP, whose mission is to "eliminate racial discrimination," still includes in its name. Moreover, the United Negro College Fund is still called that.
