"J.D. Salinger was an underestimated asshole" (Do a mash-up of any 3 current Lounge thread titles)

This could get interesting.

Ready, set, GO.

As much as I hate hyperbole, OMFG, this is GOD's sammich (recipe & photos)


Monte Cristo Waffle Sandwich

4 whole grain toaster waffles
1/2 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
1/4 pound shaved honey baked ham
Raspberry jam
1/4 pound shaved turkey (optional)
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter


Top two toaster waffles with some shredded cheese, then a handful of ham (and optional turkey) and then more cheese. Slather the other two toaster waffles with raspberry jam and use as a top to the cheese topped waffles.
Bring a frying pan to medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in it.
Whisk the eggs and milk together in a shallow bowl.
Dredge one sandwich in the egg batter then place in the frying pan. Top with a cover and cook until the sandwich is browned, flip and cook the other side until the cheese is melted. Repeat the process with the additional butter and other sandwich and serve immediately.

I am SERIOUSLY thinking about seeing these folks LIVE in 2014. I am normally not impressed by the whole "tribute band" thing but DSO is SEVERAL levels above that.

Sheriff Joe "hope(s) the inmates give thanks" for tomorrow's 24-cent vegetarian turkey soy casserole

Joe Arpaio Offers Inmates, Fed Only Twice A Day, 56-Cent Thanksgiving Meal

The Huffington Post | By Shadee Ashtari Posted: 11/27/2013 5:45 pm EST

Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has planned a particularly economical meal for the roughly 7,500 to 10,000 inmates in his jail system this Thanksgiving.

The meal comes in at a cost of just 56 cents per inmate, and its main entrée will be 24-cent vegetarian turkey soy casserole. Arpaio tweeted the Thanksgiving menu Wednesday morning.

“Hope the inmates give thanks for this special meal being served in the jails tomorrow," Arpaio's tweet said.

The official Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office website features a bio of Arpaio that touts his accomplishments in providing inmates with “the cheapest meals in the U.S.” by feeding inmates “only twice daily, to cut the labor costs of meal delivery." Arpaio has “even stopped serving them salt and pepper” to save taxpayer money, according to the bio. The average meal for an inmate in a Maricopa County jail costs between 15 and 40 cents, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office website.

Alec Baldwin Blames 'Fundamentalist' Gay Activists For End Of MSNBC Show

The Huffington Post | By Jack Mirkinson Posted: 11/27/2013 7:52 am EST


Alec Baldwin ended his short-lived cable news career with a bang on Tuesday, slamming what he described as "fundamentalist" gay activists for the end of his MSNBC show.

Speaking to Gothamist, Baldwin was scathing:

I dispute half the comment I made... if I called him 'c--ksucking maggot' or a 'c--ksucking motherf--ker'... 'faggot' is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. But you've got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy--Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan--they're out there, they've got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself."

Fox News host: Obamacare ‘touches so many people’s lives’ unlike ‘Katrina or the Iraq war’

Fox News host Martha MacCallum on Monday suggested that President Barack Obama’s health care law was even worse than devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina or the Iraq War because it “touches so many people’s lives.”

In a segment on America’s Newsroom, MacCallum invited Fox News contributor Brit Hume to examine a recent conservative claim that the president was trying to “change the subject” from the health care reform law by negotiating to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

“That’s certainly part of it,” Hume observed. “But these are issues — Iran, immigration — that the president was going to have to address anyway, whatever his standing and whatever the condition of his health insurance reform plan.”

“What I keep coming back to in all of this is unlike other issues — Katrina or the Iraq war — that we’ve seen in [President George W. Bush's] second term, this is something that touches so many people’s lives across the country,” MacCallum opined. “And you don’t know whether the president is going to be able to successfully dodge it.”

"Bacterium is attracted to moisture and loves to grow in the nook and crannies of a loofah..."

What's Really Lurking On Your Loofah? Dermatologists Tell Us The Gross Truth

The Huffington Post | By Dana Oliver Posted: 11/25/2013 11:04 am EST


"Loofahs are good for removing dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth and conditioned. Scrubbing the skin two to three times a week will enhance circulation and promote the excretory function of the skin," explains cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank.

Due to their abrasiveness and the fact they can harbor bacteria, mold and germs, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, not only cautions against using a loofah too roughly and too frequently; she also warns that sharing them is a big no-no.

Dr. Stafford Broumand, plastic surgeon and associate clinical professor of plastic surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, echoes this warning adding, "Bacterium is attracted to moisture and loves to grow in the nook and crannies of a loofah. Some of the bacteria might be something like P. aeruginosa (which has been linked to drug-resistant infections)."

"The most likely route of infection is through broken skin -- nicks and cuts from shaving are particulary susceptible," says Dr. Heidi Waldorf, the director of laser and cosmetic dermatology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. "Infections can show up as folliculltis (red bumps and pustules at hair follicles) or as impetigo (yellow-oozing or crusting on a red base)."

Katy Perry @ the American Music Awards, "perpetuating harmful stereotypes of Asian women?"

Causing a controversy: Singer Katy Perry, wearing a kimono, performs onstage during the 2013 American Music Awards on Nov. 24 in Los Angeles.

While it’s not the first time Katy Perry has donned a kimono in public, many viewers felt the pop star’s geisha-inspired performance of “Unconditionally” at the American Music Awards Sunday night was culturally insensitive.

Against a lavish backdrop of floating lotus blossoms and a Shinto shrine, Perry, 29, performed the ceremony’s opening act in powdery white makeup and a cleavage-baring kimono. Fan-wielding dancers fluttered across the stage, as some glided through the air with colorful umbrellas.

The number triggered a flurry of tweets from viewers, many of whom accused Perry of appropriating Japanese culture and perpetuating harmful stereotypes of Asian women.
