There's so much going on in Talk week to week that we almost can't keep up. If you're in the same boat, here's a small selection of topics and responses that have piqued our interest this week.
"Is it just me, or does Ramp Gibson sound more like a cheesy action hero than a tasty beverage?
"The name is Gibson — Ramp Gibson — and I'm here to seduce you."" —rhallen
"I got a tattoo of Bud Light on my inner forearm. I show it to people, they see my bare, unblemished skin and they say "How is that a tattoo of Bud Light, there's nothing there?"
And I say "That's the point" —redfish
"My coffee has notes of a tire fire. But I'm good with that." —franko
"Doomed. Sorry. Medically known as "aceto obsessi," this condition usually results in serious injury from beatings by insecure but tough strangers who mistake your puckered face as a sign of a harsh judgement on their woe - begotten lives. Do not wear harsh "old librarian" glasses, as these intensify the visual effect. Maybe try a veil and try to keep it free of vinegar stains." —fatbaztard
"I'm an eyeglasses-wearing, pickle-loving librarian. You can come sit by me, @sobriquet. Bring your fridge." —Knitter
""In the future, I'm thinking of dipping my 'balls in Marcella Hazan's classic onion-butter tomato sauce." I hope Marcella is receptive to this.
P.S. I really don't care about meatballs on pizza. I just came for the Balls jokes." —Kerosena
"Adam, looks like you had a ball with this pie and subsequent documentation. I had a ball reading it. I'd do it!" —Tupper Cooks!
"I would like to believe that freezing things kills some of the calories. Shhh... (eyes closed). " —Obivia
"The fact that there is a big hole down the middle is weird but I had to get one because when I was in Italy they had them & they still fry their pies. As a classical archaeologist I had to take part in the so very wrong ritual of eating at the McDonalds across the plaza from the Pantheon." —kdroste
