This story includes some local brands, like Duke’s Mayonnaise, Big Red soda, and Nehi Peach, and also some local delicacies like boiled peanuts, the SPAM sushi pictured above and something called coffee syrup, which is mixed with milk and drunk by Rhode Islanders.  

In Rhode Island, this is considered food. -from flickr user spablab

  • Death of an Online Recipe Stealer

Until very recently, Cooks Source was a website where people could read recipes and other such food-related articles.  And then, the editor, Judith Griggs, was sent an email by a woman who had been forwarded an apple pie recipe that had appeared on the Cooks Source website… HER apple pie recipe!  So, what’s an editor to do?  Well, first, send a snarky “apology” telling the plagiarized that they should be happy they were stolen from because now the article is better!  Then, shutter the site because the Internet now hates you.

First, we drink the wine. Then, we dance! -from bufgu.com

$156,450 for a bottle of wine?  Oh, I see, it’s Chateau Lafite!  Wait… no.  Still not worth it.  OH!  It was formerly owned by Thomas Jefferson!  Pfft, I wouldn’t pay that much even if it had been owned by George Jefferson.

Everytime someone comes up with something like this, the Baby Jesus smiles... -from instructables.com

This awe-inspiring creation comes just in time for the holidays, because you can never have enough gravy and there’s NOTHING worse than gravy skin.

Finally today, Mental Floss has some links to some great old food ads that picture food as unappealing as lime green polyester and trickle-down economics.  They also wanted to add that not all bad cooking is in the past…
