You tell 'em big red!!! First, kill the OED and then these guys! http://onelook.datamuse.com/?loc=rescb&ref…
We have your support! But please can we keep "golf putting" and "soft pudding". I need those phrases every day. Like, "After a long day of golf putting I like to go to Bacchanalia and treat myself to their delicious soft pudding."
See, that almost had some context to the article!
my willy's going to intervene on your scotus
how is your comment even funny or appropriate today?
Springer Mtn is excellent chicken. That being said, it is another large coorporation in GA screwing local chicken farmers. Tyson and Perdue, both local, drive prices in GA down with their bullshit farming. SM is on the other end, driving prices up because we have no alternative for well treated poultry. GA laws are fucked for chicken, making smaller producers have to go to Alabama or NC to process. The consumer loses out. Don't blame LeRoy for prices cause she's doing the right thing and getting screwed too. Listen, Paula Deen has her own brand of chicken produced for her by SM. Do you really think they need to charge what they do for their product? I love the humane effort towards the chicken, but there is a whole other group being destroyed here in GA that also walks on two legs.
As for the taste of her fried chicken...never been.
But in all seriousness, my grandma might have had some ugly babies, but she did make some damn good scrambled eggs with pig brains!
"Then again, I suspect you find brown and black people equally disgusting in their own ways."
What a clever way to show how against stereotyping and generalizations you are! Could I say that ignorance in GA has more to do with class than ethnicity? Possibly, but some might say, "who gives a shit" once the damage is done. Oh, how to fix that? Educate people? Sure, one needs to figure out the causes to change the effects. That isn't close to what Sedaris' article is about. It's an obvious rant showing the dislike and misunderstanding of a culture's food that takes its cues from a neurosis that I'm sure would manifest itself in the author's mind at most NYC delis. One could see what Sedaris' article could do to American perceptions of Chinese culture, but I don't think anyone reading it is that stupid. Those that can't read are usually burning crosses anyway. Oh yeah, thanks for realizing that us folks down here could make that connection with deep Appalachia for your analogy. I've never been to China, but I sure know a delicious roadkill 'possum stew when I see one! Wait, if that's what has taken over as the standard in Beijing's health code, then maybe we shouldn't eat there. Thanks for the warning!
Holy Baby Jesus! Everyone needs to stop reading this now and head to Inman park to save Lucy before it's too late!!!
True dat, cjd85. And having to compare three countries to one just to get similar results. Not fair.
Wikapedia journalism, but still funny
