The Effects of Scotchgard™ on Wakefulness: A Study

This piece is satire. If you take it another way, that’s your problem, not mine.

A recent study has determined that certain substances commonly used in upholstery for furniture has a tendency to cause a form of sleeping disorder, particularly in the presence of small crowds or large amounts of alcohol.

The conclusive study, […]

My Food Bucket List Suggestion: How Many Have You Had?

Number 49 on the list, handmade Coarse Liverwurst (Liver Sausage) from Kilgus Meats in Toledo, Ohio. I just eat the stuff by itself, no sandwich required.

In December 2006 shortly after starting this blog over at the Monroe News web site, I fell victim to the whole “Foodie Quiz” thing and wrote one myself. […]

Food Safety vs. The Shutdown: A Country of Food Safety Wimps

A loaf of Farmhouse Bread from Zingerman’s in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where they make this and other breads from scratch.

A couple days ago on Huffington Post, staff writer for food and culture Joe Satran posted an article that made me think a little deeper about how things used to be. In his article, […]

Twelve Food-Related Statements That Need To Be Banned

Adam at age 15 with some camp cooking equipment from the 1950s. Peope in the U.S. today would likely be extremely squeamish about eating food prepared with these.

When it comes to food, I don’t really like “top-ten” or “top-one-hundred” or any other kind of similar lists. Those lists are very dependant on the […]

In Food Writing, Northern Michigan Is …

A Beef & Pork Rutabaga Pasty from Nylund’s Pasties in Crystal Falls, Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. Yes, Michigan does indeed have an Upper Peninsula.

A couple of my biggest pet peeves have to do with Michigan food writing in general. There are quite a few food writers here in the state and, make […]

Higher Restaurant Prices: Why We Should Let It Happen, and Who Should Benefit

The view of the waterpark from the front-of-house at work.

After a couple decades in tech industries and avionics/electronics training in the Navy, after having entirely unstable employment positions where I never knew if a given day would be my last only because of circumstances outside my own control, I’ve finally given up on […]

KFC’s Double Down vs. Canadian Poutine: A Reality Check

A serving of not-quite-Poutine at Crazy Joe’s in Wallaceburg, Ontario, Canada. This version uses shredded cheese instead of fresh cheese curds.

In an article published on October 18, 2010, Diahna Mehta of the Canadian Press and some other folks rally against the Double Down‘s upcoming appearance in Canada:

“The Double Down’s 540 calories, […]

Comments and Rant on '[C]all for heads to shut school gates to stop pupils' junk food binge'

Note: The school lunch programs in this country and others irk me to no end. Administrators want to save money, federal and state authorities want to legislate the Hell out of it, and meanwhile the kids are driving to McDonald’s or finding a “chip shop” because the school lunches aren’t what they remotely like or […]

Buy Dawn: The Gulf Oil Spill Ain't The Animals' Fault

So the idiots that owned that oil rig couldn’t pay to have a remote shut-off on the pipe on the floor of the Gulf. Now the continuous leak is endangering wildlife on the Gulf coast.

One reason I only buy Dawn dish soap is that, when you enter the activation code on the bottom […]

The Overly-Negative Media Blitz About KFC's Double Down

The media and food bloggers alike are having what can easily be termed a “hissy fit” about KFC’s new Double Down sandwich, which will be available tomorow, April 12, 2010. In CNN’s coverage of KFC’s Double Down, author Kat Kinsman asks, “Is fat fare at fast foods going too far?” The article then lists […]
