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.
"It looks like a record. Wonder what song it would play if you put that crust on a turntable?"[ed note: Limp Bizkit?]—David Kover
I like to have a nice rye-based drink and yell at all the nutritional inaccuracies that parade across my tv screen.
That makes me not alone, right?" —CandiRisk
"I often drink alone or with others." —lucylew
"Don't feel bad, it happens to every pizza every once in a while" —mignonette
"I had to poke out my minds eye after reading the title." —Raoul Duke
"Fool's Gold Loaf is a sandwich (if you can call it that) made by the Colorado Mine Company in Denver, Colorado.
It is a whole loaf of bread, hollowed out and filled with a jar of peanut butter, a jar of grape jelly, and a pound of bacon.
Elvis once flew to Denver in the middle of the night and he and his crew (and pilots) ate 22 of these things for a few hours and then flew back to Memphis. They didn't even have to go to the restaurant at 1:40 in the morning -- they were delivered to the hangar and consumed there.
PS - I have so many awesome Elvis food stories. But my other favorite is that he had special glasses made so he could lay in bed, eat, and watch TV all at the same time." —Rosewood
"Was in the liquor store recently, and saw a vodka bottle dressed with a parka, fuzzy hood included, and I've never rolled my eyes so hard. Almost hurt my poor sockets.
Felt vindicated, when I overheard someone beside us looking at the same campaign say, "mmm, I can taste the gimmick". Honestly." —conky
