Can you imagine the percentage of rural America that would have been conceived in the back of a Firebird wagon if Pontiac had made that car?

This year's batch of fruitcakes (the Alton Brown "Free Range Fruitcake" recipe) have been completed. Making them now allows for enough time for them to age before Christmas.

With all of the dried fruit, nuts, and booze in these, I estimate a cost of around $30 per cake just for the ingredients.

Clearly if they truly supported the LGBTQ+ community they would have announced that Snap, Crackle, and Pop are gay and in a polyamorous relationship and Tony the Tiger is a trans genderqueer woman.

My brother supplies the potatoes for Thanksgiving, and his mashed-potato recipe involves something like one pound of bacon for every three pounds of potatoes, along with garlic and cream. It's always a hit.

Does this verdict mean that rural white people are now justified in looting the local Bass Pro?
Sorry, they're probably out of ammunition too so there's nothing there you want.

I was looking at porch light bulbs and learned that there is a blue bulb to use to show your support for Blue Lives Matter.

Each bulb should come with a free boot for the purchaser to lick.

I'm not even all that fond of him, but there's no way that Rhianna, Whitney Houston, or Mariah Carey should be ranked higher than Bruce Springsteen.

I couldn't tell you the title of a Rhianna song if you put a gun to my head.

Gal Gadot vs. Ritu Arya AKA Pavel Bure is Out of His Damn Mind

Let's put a different spin on the question. Godot is Jewish. No pork; no mixing meat and cheese (i.e., no cheeseburgers or pepperoni pizza). Ritu Arya is Hindu. No beef; no hamburgers at all. Say that either would require you to keep to keep to her dietary restrictions. Which one now?

Got my booster (PPP) last Wednesday. Nothing other than arm soreness and maybe a little fatigue. I think the increases we're seeing in northern states is quite likely based on seasonality, and we're going to see SARS-CoV-2 recur just like the flu does.

Are Thermapens worth the money? Or does anyone have a recommendation for another brand of instant-read thermometer.

Amazon doesn't seem to carry ThermoWorks products from what I can see, so I'm wondering if its worth the extra money/hassle to order one from another place.
