Celebrity Trios

The latest celebrity trio to bite the dust:

Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon.

And of those, only McMahon's death would have been predictable just two years ago. How sad.

0g Trans Fat!

Burger King is now using new oil that has no trans fat. That's really great. Think of all the people who used to walk into Burger King and then change their mind when they realized that BK was still using transfatty frying oil. So no more customers lost to trans fat!

Not only that, but now all those people who were craving a BK flame-broiled hamburger but just couldn't bring themselves to go get one because of all that trans fat now have no transfatty excuses.

This following a recent move by Kentucky Fried Chicken to start making unfried chicken. What is the world of fast food coming to.

Free Music, Part 2

After Wherefore, we renamed the band, "The Strains," and took a slightly different turn with the musical style. The first album we recorded was a rough 6-song EP.

Pringles Onion Blossom

Apparently, when a Pringles flavor flops (and with the sheer number of flavors they're always putting out, it's no surprise that many do), all the canisters of chips are sent to the Dollar Tree. Every now and then, I'll see one there that actually sounds interesting.

The other day I picked up a can of "Onion Blossom" flavored Pringles. These are designed to taste like those "onion blossom" appetizers sold at places like Applebees and Chilis. Amazingly, they taste almost EXACTLY like a piece of onion "blossom" dipped in that ranchy-dipping-sauce they always given with them.

And just like the real thing, these Pringles get sickening fast.
