Don’t you hate it when they beat you at your own game?

The very funny Information Nation saw my piece on deep fried Coca-Cola and then went and did some … gasp … research. Click here to see what I hope is the definitive list of foods that have been deep fried (Haggis?!?! Dear God, won’t someone think of the children?). Although I don’t know how definitive the list can be without including Uncle Moe’s Family Feedbag which fried and then served a tray covered with food, utensils, a wine bottle and such. “This baby can flash-fry a buffalo in 40 seconds!”

Speaking of being beaten at my own game … kudos/curses to AdFreak for finding the story about Hillary and soon-to-be -former Sen. Santorum wearing corporate sponsorship suits a la NASCAR before I did. Grrrrr. And extra kudos to GOOD magazine for coming up with the idea in the first place.

And speaking of Weasel-Like Animals

Joe “More Boring Than Al Gore” Lieberman and La Hillary continue their efforts to grab headlines, I mean protect the US from the threat of video games. Apparently Tweedledee and Tweedledum are tired of wasting just their own time on this — now they want the Centers for Disease Control Prevention to investigate the “impact of electronic media use.” Hmmm, let’s list our priorities for the CDC: Cancer, flu pandemic … video games. Huzzah, I suppose for bipartisan stupidity: Hill & Joe’s legislation calling for/funding this research is being cosponsored by GOP Sens. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Sam Brownback of Kansas. Too bad they can’t get together and agree on something that actually matters.
