Behind the hard candy shell

Can we talk about that Eminem diss video? And by "talk" I mean I rant and you read?

Everyone's focusing on Eminem's political message, but I have a couple other things I'd like to bring up.

1. Did he go to mime school? This is not an insult, his skills are genuinely impressive. Check the 3:00 mark where he gives a nod to the classic "trying to escape a glass box" routine!

2. Where did all those guys in the background come from? Is there like a "tough dudes who lean on cars" Meetup group? What's the interview process like? How are the retirement benefits?

No respect

This is the baby scale at my children's pediatrician's office:



This is a closeup of the sticker on the side of the scale:



The only explanation I can come up with is that the person who designed this sticker had never seen a baby before and, being a huge fan of Rodney Dangerfield, decided to draw an approximation of what Rodney would look like as a miniature person. If this was the goal, mission accomplished.

So meaty

I just got an email about an "180 year old steak recipe."



Rather than reading the article, I drew up a composite of what I imagine the recipe looks like.

Mother Earth Brewing Company Say When IPA

RATING: 4/5



These flavor notes are getting regoddamndiculous. The label on this beer says it tastes like "gooseberry pie, passionfruit, meringue, and tea leaf" leaving me to ask: what in holy hell is gooseberry pie? I can envision a group of hipster "connoisseurs" sitting around a distressed rustic Pottery Barn table, nodding enthusiastically as Brent spits beer into a pail and exclaims, "It's like drinking my grandma's gooseberry pie!"

I like this beer despite the ridiculousness on the label. It's a bit more tart than the current West Coast IPA style, but goes down smooth. The next time I'm invited to a hipster picnic, I'll definitely bring some along.

Full Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Wheatwine Ale

RATING: 4/5



To be honest, I had never heard of wheatwine before this beer. I found it to be similar to barleywine, but with less of the offensive malty sweetness. This beer is only for the unfaint? of heart. At 12% ABV, it will put hair on your chest (don't worry, your breath will burn the hair right back off). This wheatwine would pair well with sharp cheddar cheese or toffee candy.
