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


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


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.
