231% of your daily cholesterol needs

I must be hungry this morning, as I am reading this Internet wag's description of Swanson's Hungry Man Breakfast, which he dubs The Breakfast From Hell.

Good thing I have McDonald's coupons. :)

From A Window

I've been looking on YouTube, but the only video of the song From A Window that I can find is by this fellow.

Shatner in the Sky with Diamonds!

This amusing cartoon video accompanies William Shatner's definitive version of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.


Oh my goodness, I know somebody who posts videos on YouTube. Follow the link to find videos starring a former colleague of mine and his cat.

They aren't are surreal as the videos done by French singer Sheila, say, but they will no doubt amuse you.


Inspired by my purchase of a $5 replica Barry Goldwater campaign button at a flea market, I went searching on YouTube. It's surprising to see Canadian Raymond Massey endorse Barry Goldwater on the grounds that he will end the Vietnam War. I guess that this would have happened after Goldwater blew up all the fields with little girls picking daisies in them.

I do have one question for YouTube, though. Why would a search for "Barry Goldwater" bring up the Dr. Strangelove trailer?

Add ye powederrd cheesse to the boxx of Krafft Dinnyer nooddles...

I've spotted an online transcript of a cookbook (pamphlet, really) of English medieval recipes: A Book of Cookrye, published in 1591.

A sample recipe:

To bake Chickins.
Season them with cloves, mace, sinamon ginger, and some pepper, so put them into your coffin, and put therto corance dates Prunes, and sweet Butter, or els Marow, and when they be halfe baked, put in some sirup of vergious, and some sugar, shake them togither and set them into the oven again.

Hmm, sirup of vergious...won't be able to ask the neighbours for a cup of that.

Thanks to the Medieval/Renaissance Food Homepage.

I want to hold your chakras!

This odd Hindi version of I Want To Hold Your Hand must come from a Bollywood movie. Which one?

When Connery Met Sally

The imitable Craig Ferguson has imagined what might happen if Sean Connery starred in a remake of When Harry Met Sally.

No, I don't particularly want to have what he is having, thanks. :)
