[livejournal.com profile] hezbollah_tofu. That's awesome.

“Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn. To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living. Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food.” - Anthony Bourdain, “Kitchen Confidential,” p. 70

From this entry, which wonders whether "hezbollah tofu" is offensive cultural appropriation.

I think it's pretty funny.

Next year, the use of US corn for ethanol is forecast to rise to 114 million tonnes - nearly a third of the whole projected US crop. American cars now burn enough corn to cover all the import needs of the 82 nations classed by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) as "low-income food-deficit countries". There could scarcely be a better way to starve the poor.

Source, thanks [livejournal.com profile] missioncontrol. The article also compiles a list of food riots so far this year.
frandroid: Stephen Colbert giving a thumbs up in from of the American Flag (Colbert)
For those who didn't know, Obama is on the Daily Show tonight. As usual with people who are popular and whom Stewart has little to criticize about, he will completely melt, embarassingly suck up to the person and completely fail to make the interview interesting in any way, shape or form. For reference, see any interviews with pretty white hollywood women actors, and Willie Nelson's. He might get a little interesting if he talks about race...

Obama's segment on Colbert the other night was a little better than Hillary's, but they were both way overshadowed by the Rep. or Governor that was interviewed, and John Edwards' edW0RDS, even if he has no comic timing.
