"The Truffle Oil Shuffle"

You've probably heard how a lot of extra virgin olive oil is a scam. It turns out so's "truffle oil".

"What NYC Restaurant Menus Looked Like 100 Years Ago Vs. Today"

Very interesting. One noticable thing: there were a lot more vegetables on the menu in those days.

One old "joke" about conservatives is now obsolete

There's a joke about conservatives that runs along the line of "A conservative is someone who's desperately afraid that someone, somewhere is having fun."

But now in the very, very liberal UK Guardian we have this: "Brunch is a waste of time, money and drunken pleasure that you don't have".

(Is it satire? No, I don't think so, but make up your own minds.)

"Arby's Has A $10 Secret Menu Item Called The 'Meat Mountain'"

I don't think it's a "secret". Here in NC they're advertising that bad boy on TV a lot.

The $10 sandwich has 2 chicken tenders, 1.5 oz. of roast turkey, 1.5 oz. of ham, 1 slice of Swiss cheese, 1.5 oz. of corned beef, 1.5 oz. brisket, 1.5 oz. of Angus steak, 1 slice of cheddar cheese, 1.5 oz. roast beef, and 3 half-strips of bacon, writes Sarah Halzack at The Washington Post

I don't drink beer, so this is purely a service for my readers. (Could Belgian monks really be #1?)

"The Future of Iced Coffee"

So it seems like coffee--soon even iced coffee--is going the way of beer, some clothes, and other items. For a while, big companies, mass production, and low prices dominate. Then, almost as soon as critics decry the loss of quality and craftsmanship as one of the horrors--horrors!--of the free market, the market produces . . . quality.
