The Bacon Doughnut Experiment #1

Previous posts about bacon doughnuts can be found here and here.

I thought it’d be interesting to actually eat a bacon doughnut rather than just talk about them.  What follows is a documentation of my experiences doing it.

Because I don’t live anywhere bacon doughnuts can be easily found pre-made, I had to make one [...]

American Butthash Media Strikes Again

The MSM, AKA the ABM (American Butthash Media), AKA the Obamedia, does its level best to sensationalize the ordinary while falling down on the job of actual objective reporting of facts.

First, this story was unquestioningly extruded onto the toilet bowl of the internet, a Drudge Report headline:

A worker died after being trampled and [...]

Our Thanksgiving

Despite the disturbing events in Mumbai, it is still Thanksgiving, and in the U.S., we have a great deal to be thankful for.  I present you with a photo of our Thanksgiving meal:

Lori Drew Gets Slap on Wrist

The woman who hounded Megan Meier into hanging herself in a closet gets misdemeanor convictions:

A jury has convicted a Missouri woman of three minor offenses for her role in an Internet hoax that apparently drove a 13-year-old girl to suicide. The Los Angeles federal court jury on Wednesday rejected felony charges of accessing a [...]

More Bacon Doughnuts

Because some joker’s wife thought I was making it all up, I thought I would post a collection of links that talk about bacon doughnuts:

Here is a recipe from someone who makes bacon doughnuts.  For some of us, there might be more credibility to the link because the person who posted it is an [...]

Bacon Doughnut

This is apparently a new item at a California diner:

The nickel diner in Los Angeles, California is known for carefully making all of their own baked goods…But, put your diet on hold, and prepare to go hog wild over this guilty pleasure…The diner is now offering a bacon donut!It’s a maple glazed donut dipped [...]

“Make it special.”

Every diner’s nightmare:

Fulton Police have arrested two employees at the McDonald’s Restaurant in Fulton after police say they spit in an Oswego police officer’s sandwich. 30-year-old Phillip Dunbar and 35-year-old Jeremy Hankey have both been charged with criminal tampering.

Police say a uniformed officer driving a patrol car went through the drive-through window and ordered a Chicken Snack [...]

The Chickenhawk Argument Writ Small

The Cato Institute indulges in a little chickenhawk argumentation at President Obamessiah’s expense:

A few months ago, Barack Obama told a gathering of the American Federation of Teachers that he opposes private school choice programs, adding: “We need to focus on fixing and improving our public schools; not throwing our hands up and walking away [...]

“We got the corned beef…I got the corned beef.”

Corned beef!  CORNED BEEF!

President-elect Barack Obama grabbed his lunch to go Friday and artfully dodged a question about the auto industry woes he’ll inherit.”We got the corned beef,” Obama said as he made his way around the counter at Manny’s deli. Asked by a reporter what he thought about the auto industry, he responded [...]

An agency director improperly used state computers to find personal information on “Joe the Plumber,” a government watchdog said in a report released Thursday.

There was no legitimate business purpose for [...]

Frivolous Lawsuit Achieves Counterproductive Aim

eHarmony doesn’t match gays with other gays.  It’s just not a service the dating website provides.  There are hundreds of dating sites out there, and many of them do match homosexuals.  Even so, one particularly angry homosexual decided to sue eHarmony for discrimination.  This is the outcome:

Gays and lesbians seeking partners now may join [...]

Cthulhu’s Cthock

The taxpayers of Denver funded this monstrosity:

I think they got their money’s worth.  And it’s another reason why we need more oversight in public funding for the arts.

Buh… whu… wah?
