National Junk Food Day; What Did You Eat?

This is a “holiday” I can really get into. I woke up hungry for junk, too. Something that would blow my diet into the next zip code. Not comfort food, like those little cocktail weenies wrapped in croissant dough and baked. No, I wanted something with salt, fat, calories and way too […]

Friday Follies: Fast Food War in Japan? I Want What They’ve Got…

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2012»

Oh, those fun-loving and fast-food-chomping Japanese; they do everything in such a big way! For example, there’s been a “fast food war” on in Japan for at least a couple of years now. First, it was chicken in the crosshairs. In 2010, KFC and McDonald’s started […]

Burger Follies: A Fight Over Killer Burgers, In-N-Out in Texas, and Burger America Goes Second Edition

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Extreme-sized foods are more and more the fashion these days. Witness the rise of shows like “Man vs. Food Nation” and “Glutton for Punishment.” The events shown on these programs don’t explore the behind-the-scenes support crew, including the medical transport personnel with well-lubed defibrillators powered […]

It’s not exactly a sign of the impending Apocalypse, but it IS interesting. Sort of…

It would appear that the downturn has begun to force the ultra-affluent in America to change their eating habits. They’re still spending (Thank goodness, or it really WOULD be the end of the world), and even spending in restaurants. However, […]

Da Dawgs are Back! Time to Herd Some Ducks…

Classes started today. I’ll list that as the excuse for the paucity of daily postings hereabouts. After all, as “new” faculty hereabouts, there have been more meetings than the BP disaster glee club. HR, committees, welcome this and signing that; the amount of stuff to do was frankly surprising, and I can’t really be […]

Friday Follies (Sort Of): “Can I Get Meth With That?”

In a bid to give “fast food” a whole new meaning, a manager at a Sonic drive-in recently cooked up a lot more than an Ex-Long Chili Cheese Coney with Tater Tots. You see, he was also cooking up methamphetamines. On store property, in the restaurant’s equipment. According to the Associated Press,

Police arrived at […]
