Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I can’t wait any longer! Has the Williams-Sonoma December catalog arrived yet? I need to get ready for the big holidays!
Yes, and naturally I was drawn to page 120, the Breville Deep Fryer, $149.95. That’s what I want for holiday entertaining, right? I mean, what says, I care about my family’s health better than immersing their food in oil? Especially with those recent studies showing we all need to raise our cholesterol levels.
Yes, of course. Try to keep up.
But if I DO want a deep fryer, this is the one to get, right?
No, I’m afraid this is the one for sissies. The one you want is on the Williams-Sonoma Website, the Timber Ridge Backyard Host Deep Fryer, just $699.95.
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.
Blog Guy, so we’ve established that you lost some weight recently. I found your health tips helpful, but could you be more specific about what you ate?
So you went on an all-meat diet?
Blog Guy, I love going out to restaurants, but I enjoy being surrounded by beautiful women. I find standards are falling in that area lately.
No, I’m as shallow as they come. So is there someplace I can go where my sensitivities won’t be offended?
Blog Guy, I know you keep up with food trends, and I saw mention of a mouth-watering treat while reading all the stories about the debt crisis…
I’ll bet you’re talking about the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, who called the debt deal a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich.”
Blog Guy, what’s the latest “in” pet for celebrities to have? Are they still carrying those tiny dogs in their purses?
What is it, Boss?
There’s a really, really long, gross, black hair in my lunch! Where the hell did you go for this take-out?
But that’s in… Well, I guess it certainly explains why it took you four days to get back here to Orlando with it.
Okay, we already know there are a lot of really stupid people out there, but it may be time to recalibrate my measuring scale.
Hey Blog Guy, I know you love to cook and sometimes share culinary secrets.
I spoke to an Italian chef, and I think I can help you out. You’ll need a butt-load of fresh basil, some parmesan, pine nuts, garlic and olive oil. I’m going to make a trial batch in my own kitchen while I write this.
