MFK (Mary Frances Kennedy) Fisher (1908-1992) was a famous American food author.  Her writing style is a delightful amalgamation of memoir, travel, and food literature.  Her personal experiences and travels to Europe helped create her identity as an approachable and relatable chef.  Her recipes do not emulate fine restaurants, but are simple and elegant.  Her book How to Cook a Wolf was one of her most successful.  First published in 1942 during the World War II food shortage, Fisher wrote about how to make food economically and how to enjoy it.  In his 1942 review of the book, Orville Prescott of the New York Times wrote:
“Cook books are indisputably indispensable for the welfare of the human race, and they sell very nicely (Fannie Farmer’s ”Boston Cook Book” some 2,040,000 copies). […] Few indeed have any claims to literary merit. At least, few did until a knowing lady who signs herself austerely M. F. K. Fisher began conducting her one-woman revolution in the field of literary cookery. Mrs. Fisher writes about food with such relish and enthusiasm that the mere reading of her books creates a clamorous appetite. She also writes with a robust sense of humor and a nice capacity for a neatly turned phrase. […] Her chapter titles themselves are gems that provoke an irresistible desire to find out just what on earth she means by them: ”How to Distribute Your Virtue,” ”How to Boil Water,” ”How to Greet the Spring,” ”How to Be Cheerful Through Starving” ”How to Pray for Peace,” ”How to Be Content With a Vegetable Love” and ”How to Have a Sleek Pelt.” “ (“Books of the Times”)

if i saw that mounted on a cubicle wall IRL i would run screaming through the cube labyrinth yelling AAAAA AAAAAAA AAAAAAAA

Couple things:

  • That second one is two sentences, not one as implied by the preface
  • Did this person somehow hack notepad to use Comic Sans? What else puts ‘Untitled’ at the top and ‘Page 1’ at the bottom?
  • Big ups for capitalizing ‘Welfare’

you can set notepad to use any installed font i think ppl call that kind of thing a lifehack

Oh you totally can, this person is a brilliant monster

Ginuwine, “Pony” (Top 40 debut: 10/5/96, chart peak: #6)

The national anthem of grinding was also the first Top 10 single produced by Timbaland, though Aaliyah’s “If Your Girl Only Knew” made it to #11 just weeks earlier.

I listened to a couple tracks off Iggy Azalea’s debut album The New Classic (credit/fault recommended follow unimpressed2chainz) and it’s the tracks are quite bad.

Has anyone dubbed Iggy ‘Another Bad Kreayshawn' yet? I feel like I can't be the first person to arrive at this nickname.

Dallas Archer got arrested for driving with a suspended license. Then it got interesting. 

Kingsport, Tennessee Police report that Ms. Archer had a four-inch revolver, reported missing from a previous burglary, in her vagina, and it was loaded.

This begs at least a few questions:

  • Was Ms. Archer traveling with the gun in her vagina, or was she pulled over and then chose to stash the stolen piece?
  • Does the standard pat-down in the Kingsport City Jail include a cavity search, or did the officer, like, see the handle?
  • Why does the report narrative refer to Ms. Archer as ‘Ms. Dallas’? Is KPD on a first-name basis with her?
  • WHY, OH WHY WAS IT LOADED?

I don’t think there’s an acceptable answer to that last one. I totally understand why you’d want to disappear your stolen gun if you’re being pulled over, which considering her original charge, is likely what happened. But if the gun’s loaded…I need answers.

Also: I really wanted to put ‘Dallas Archer’ on stereotypicallywhitenames but I don’t think it qualifies at this point.

Also: the description of the gun, a North American Arms 22 LR revolver, found here, really makes it seem like one of the better guns to insert into your vagina.

All stainless steel construction. Laminated rosewood grips. Single action with half-cock safety and notch between chambers to rest firing pin blade. Countersunk chambers enclose cartridge head. Ribbed barrel with blade front sight, notched rear sight. Cylinder and frame length varies with cartridge chambering. Fluted cylinders.

Ribbed barrel!

* ‘I need answers’ comes from Michael Arceneaux’s excellent running feature on The Cynical Ones.
