You want fries with that museum?

Honey, I have a surprise!
An entire museum of fries!
Let’s order a malted,
And everything salted,
Then leave, before anyone dies!

Blog Guy, I read your item about the Ramen Museum in Japan, which sounds kind of boring. Are there any really great food-themed museums?

ABC Attacked by ‘DWTS’ Fans Over Chaz Bono Casting

Bono, the only child of Sonny Bono and Cher, was born female but legally changed his gender and name last year. The announcement Monday that he would join the highly rated ABC dance competition immediately made him one of the highest-profile transgendered people in the world.

Chaz was born a MALE with a female anatomy. He didn’t “change his gender”, he CORRECTED his body so it matched his MALE BRAIN.

It’s me! Please! It’s really me!

Blog Guy, I heard a weird rumor from my barista’s used car dealer.

What are the chances of that? What did he say?

You know the Wonder Woman character from the comic books?

He said Wonder Woman got really rich from those stories over the years, but went sort of crazy, and that now a comic book cartel is keeping her under wraps to avoid bad publicity.

Now she lives as a glamorous recluse in her own little world, trying to convince strangers of her true identity by showing old sketches of herself.

Whack it with a hammer, dude, I’m hungry!

Blog Guy, you haven’t shared any of those fancy Williams-Sonoma items recently, the ones for foodies with too much money. Don’t they have a new catalog out?

They do indeed, and I recommend you try making their clay chicken.

Clay chicken? Isn’t the phrase CLAY PIGEON?

Nope, this is something they call a “fun and easy way to cook chicken.” It involves two chickens and nine pounds of clay, which hardens around the meat during the process. Then, when you’re ready to serve it, you slam it with a big mallet to crack the clay open.

Fracking lawsuit could set precedent for local drilling bans

ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 19 (Reuters) – A lawsuit challenging a small town’s ban on natural-gas drilling could have far-reaching implications throughout New York, where state officials are poised to approve the controversial drilling method known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

Anschutz, which owns more than 22,000 acres of land in Dryden, is arguing that New York’s Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) bars local governments from any regulation of drilling.

Where in the world is Paris Hilton?

Blog Guy, I’m worried sick! It’s been four days since we left Paris Hilton promoting her shoes in Istanbul, and we’ve heard nothing from her. I’m going to start checking the hospitals.

I’m sorry, I should have told your earlier. She’s fine, she’s just in India now, promoting her new line of handbags and accessories. Here she is, above, at a news conference.

Great leap forward?

Moody’s cuts French banks as euro crisis deepens

While Europe’s leaders struggle to avert a first default in the 12-year-old single currency area, the head of the European Union’s executive challenged them to prepare for a great leap forward in fiscal integration that would be deeply divisive.

I wanted to point out some unfortunate language in your article. Your editors decided to include the phrase “great leap forward.”
