The Weiner Circle has become a Chicago institution. Well known in college circles for after-bars dogs and humiliation. Even more smack than Ed Debevic's.

Christian forum conversations... very sad

This stuff is very scary! These people are serious.

"The Fact the Earth is Flat is not my opinion, it is a Proved Fact! While all we need to know is that the Bible says the Earth is flat (Is.40:22, Ez.7:2, Dn.2:35; 4:10-11,20, Mt.4:8).."

Here are the comments on the above post.

"God revealed to me two things about the timing of the rapture. God specifically told me 2007 was the year, because I was only going to have from 3 to 3 1/2 years to spread the message after my book was published."

Here are the comments on the second post.


Super funny KC blog

This guy posts some very funny stuff.

You suck at Photoshop!

This Photoshop tutorial is classic! A must for cat owners and fellow artists.


Top 100 Chefs...... Not!

WTF? This list is ridiculous! Jamie Oliver #1? Sara Moulton #11? Paul Prudhomme #15 Ha Ha Ha. Who's voting for these people? Their publicists?

Where is Charlie Trotter, Thomas Keller, David Chang, David Waltuck, Ferran Adria, Heston Blumenthal, Andoni Luis and of course me!

This list is a joke. Another who's who of who cares.


Time for some funny!

If you're at a party, and there is a hot chick you want to hook-up with, and a big bowl of Cheetos, you've got a decision to make. Because you're not going to do both.

Damn this guy is funny!

Zagat: "For Sale"

"Zagat Survey (pronounced zuh-GAHT) , the guide empire that started as a hobby for Tim and Nina Zagat in 1979 as a two-page typed list of New York restaurants compiled from reviews from friends, has been put up for sale, according to people briefed on the decision."

Only 2 cowtown restaurants made their list.

Just say no to NOLA

photo caption (New Orleans: The good old days)

Let's give her back to the sea! Great article about New Orleans here.

"The city and its long line of corrupt citizens and politicians have already managed to hoover $127 billion out of the federal government and that, as they say, should be enough for any cluster of crooks. On a per person basis that comes to $425,000 for each of the 300,000 fools still living in that pulsating pustule on the bayou.

Keeping that figure in mind, my policy is that the New Orleaners among us are paid up and paid in full as of today. Boys, girls, bozos, bad jazz musicians, and underemployed drag queens all, take heed. It is over. Take your toothless gums off the public tit. It is time for you all, like some overfed prolapsed Sumos who have double-dipped at the Hometown Buffet dessert table once too often, to belch, break wind, and move on."

Too bad there isn't a levee around Kansas City's 3rd and 5th districts that we can blow. These folks have been sucking the government tit and preying on the rest of the city for far too long!

(Thanks for the article Webjazz)

Very cool buildings coming soon

These buildings are incredible! Chicago has two buildings started that are truly unique.

"The phenomenal Chicago Spire, when completed in 2010, will be the world's tallest residential building and the tallest building of any kind in the western world. Seemingly modeled on the image of a giant drill poking through the ground, the 609m structure will dominate the Chicago skyline."

Here is the Spire's very impressive website. Be sure to look at the gallery and the panoramas.


I'm moving to Sunny California

I just put down 17 cents on this little shack. It's gunna take me a while to pay it off. Be sure to watch the video.

Nascar Explained

Not familiar with the intricate workings of Nascar? Watch this video. Funny!


I broke down and bought a few books today

I bought these three books from Amazon today. Kitchen Confidential, Bone in the Throat and The Nasty Bits. All by Anthony Bourdain. I know, I know, I have paying him a lot of attention lately. I'm hoping he will find my blog and want to hang out.

I'm going to try to save two of them to read on my trip to Hong Kong next month. Maybe Tony will be there and we can get boozed and eat some fish eyes together?

Wicked Panoramas

Look at these stunning photo panoramas taken around the world. Be sure to look at the pano of Times Square 2007. Lots more here.

It's time to cram more Bourdain down your throat

I know you can't get enough offal, so here is a nice long interview to fill you up. The comments on the bottom of the page are awesome! They surely reflect the recent food movement taking place across America.

AVC: Do you think that shows like Top Chef
, and your own show, and the rise of celebrity chefs in general, have led to a more pronounced foodie culture in America?

AB: I think so. I hope so. Anything that improves people's expectations of a meal is good for the world. Anything that weans even one kid or one adult away from Chili's or T.G.I. Friday's is definitely a win for the good guys.

Patton Oswalt actually eats a "Famous Bowl" and lives to tell about it

The folks over at AV Club ask Patton to eat a "Famous Bowl" and write about it. Very funny stuff.

The mashed potatoes defiantly stood their ground against the gravy, as if they'd read The Artist's Way and said, "I'm going to be boring and forgetful in my own potato-y way!"


Couldn't control his craving for chicken

DNA from chewed chicken bones led prosecutors to file charges against a Kansas man in connection with two 2006 burglaries in Gladstone, Mo.

Hee Hee. Read the hilarious story here.

Sexy Beijing: Lost in translation

An American in Beijing asks Chinese people their English names with some hilarious responses.

(Just adding in here that I find her extremely hot. I'm just sayin'.)

She has other movies posted on Youtube too.... check them out. Very cool chick.

In case you didn't know

Here are the 86 rules of boozing.

I like these:

41. Anyone on stage or behind a bar is fifty percent better looking.

55. If you think you might be slurring a little, then you are slurring a lot. If you think you are slurring a lot, then you are not speaking English.

82. There’s nothing wrong with drinking before noon. Especially if you’re supposed to be at work.


Bourdain is back for season 4

My favorite epicure is back in action for his 4th season starting tonight. Here is a recent interview conducted by TV Guide.

TVGuide.com: Your uncensored, blunt voice-overs often leave us wondering, "Did he really just say that?" How much grief do you get from the suits at Travel about your narration?
Bourdain: I have to say they've been really good. They've let stuff sail through that I was frankly surprised by. I'm on TV on the strength of a fairly obnoxious, overtestosteroned, salty book [2000's Kitchen Confidential]. So nobody expected me to morph into Tyler Florence overnight. They had a pretty good idea what was coming.

This guy kills me!

(thanks Sarah)


Top 100 blogs of 2007

Lots of good stuff here. How did Food, K.C. and Other Things not make this list?

Ground Zero of the Obesity Epidemic? The Center of Your Grocery Store

Want to find something healthy in the grocery store? Stick to the periphery: Most chain supermarkets arrange produce, dairy, and meat along the perimeter of the store, leaving the more processed foods and impulse buys in the middle.

Those Germans are always one step ahead

This is hilarious! With all the smoking bans around the world, the Germans have come up with a solution for smokers...... the smoking hole.


Top 15 Amazing Coincidences

Life is full of coincidences, some very minor, but occasionally - extraordinary. This is a list of 15 of the most incredible, unbelievable coincidences.

Also read the comments at the bottom. Readers share their own coincidences.

Don't play poker with this guy

This is a video of Ricky Jay - the master at work. His card maneuvers are so smooth he'll make you doubt your own eyes. He seems to have complete control of every individual card in the deck at all times. Through repeated shuffles and cuts he'll have you wonder "How in the heck!"

Also, check out his videos on You Tube.


Celebrating with machine guns

It was like the Middle-East here in the hood last night. It's kind of scary to know that every single person in the hood has a gun. It's even scarier to think that most of these thugs would go outside and fire off several hundred rounds into the air on New Years Eve (the same thing happens on the 4th of July).

Between about 10pm and 2am it was non-stop gunfire around here. I went outside a couple of times to listen and it was amazing. I heard everything from 22 cals. to full auto machine guns. My neighbor was shooting something that sounded like a cannon. It must have been a 44 cal.... or maybe this guy did have a cannon.

You could hear the shots coming from several houses, on every block, for miles. I wonder what kind of resolutions you make for yourself after firing your machine gun into the air on New Years?

I have some suggestions:

1. I will continue to promote blight in and around the area I live.
2. I will do everything in my power to have more babies that I can't and won't provide for.
3. I will hold up the one and only business that stuck it out and tried to make it on my block (even the chicken joints).
4. I will never become a role model for the neighbor kids to look up to.
5. I will have more ammo next New Years Eve.
6. I will refuse to get a snoop jobby job.
7. I will steal personal items and collect government money from those who work for a living.
8. I will hit my switches and collect my bitches.
9. I will roll more in my '64.

In other words..... I will be out to get mines!
