Beer you can't have and other tasty tidbits from the interwebs

Poor widdle chickens.

This is cool. New website foodily.com will act as a foodie's dream organizing tool that will allow you to search "every recipe from every website", and "find the ones your friends like" on Facebook (because where is Facebook not, amiright? #carthatcanreadfacebook).

Fancy Shmancy! The White House brewed its own beer for the Superbowl using one pound of honey from the White House Bee Hive. They have their own bee hive?

So some people nickname "pizza" "pie", and pie is a kind of dessert, so thus it makes sense that DiGiorno has started packaging cookies with its pizzas? Umm....

It's hard to be a chicken in this world. The terms "free-range", "cage-free", "fertile", "natural", and "organic" among others seem to be somewhat misleading when it comes to an explanation as to why you are suddenly paying two dollars more to know that you are not contributing to poultry abuse.

Look at us! Look at us! Lee’s Bakery and Quoc Huong on Buford Highway were pointed out by the New York Times as two of the best places to get a Banh Mi in America! Yippeeee!

A Brooklynite in Dubai. There is now a place called "Brooklyn Diner" in Dubai, complete with a maitre'd in a tux and sneakers. Uh-huh. Ok. Carry on then...

The protests and upheaval in Cairo are now affecting the city's food supply.

Attention everyone: drink sweet wine. It's good, and it doesn't make you a loser.

Oysters serve no purpose but to be delicious, apparently, and have been deemed "functionally extinct". This makes me sad and hungry at the same time. I am a horrible person.

You can open a bottle of wine with a shoe, a tree, a screw, screwdrive and a hammer, with a pen and an apron, and a chef's knife.
