Mmmmm....Roses of the Prophet Muhammad

Seriously, this is just as retarded as freedom fries

Iranians wishing to buy Danish pastries will now have to ask for "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad".

Bakeries across the capital, Tehran, are covering up signs advertising the pastries and replacing them with ones bearing the dessert's new name.

The confectioners' union ordered the name change in retaliation for the publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper.

They're just commercials

Damnit, people, what is wrong with you? I keep hearing, over and over this morning, about the fucking commercials during the super bowl.

"Oh, I really liked that one for blah blah blah."
"Did you see the one where yadda yadda?"
"The commercial for product X cured my herpes...it's a miracle!"

And so on.

They're commercials. Advertisers spend millions of dollars trying to pimp out their worthless crap, and you're eating it up like pudding. Some of you morons are watching a fucking game just to see them. Why? The other 364 days out of the year, you hit the fast-forward button on your DVR as soon as a commercial comes on.

What. The. Fuck?

Have you ever read a magazine for the ads? Do you purposely try to find the most banner-filled website, and go to that all the time? It just doesn't make any sense.

Spam spam spam

So something I never noticed before: The targeted advertising links that gmail provides for your spam folder are, in fact, links to recipes that involve Spam™. So now I know how to make French Fry Spam™ Casserole:


1 pk Frozen french fry potatoes, thawed (20 oz)
2 c Shredded Cheddar cheese
2 c Sour cream
1 cn Condensed cream of chicken soup (10 3/4 oz)
1 cn SPAM Luncheon Meat, cubed (12 oz)
1/2 c Chopped red bell pepper
1/2 c Chopped green onion
1/2 c Finely crushed corn flakes

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, combine potatoes, cheese, sour cream, and soup. Stir in SPAM, bell pepper, and green onion. Spoon into 13x9" baking dish. Sprinkle with crushed flakes. Bake 30-40 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Who's hungry?!

Groundhog Day

Today, Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow, so we get six more weeks of winter. Never mind that we haven't even had six weeks of winter previously.

But wait. The Canadian groundhog, Wiarton Willie, didn't see his shadow.

See, with all of these confusing reports, I can see why meteorologists have such a hard time predicting tomorrow's weather.
