That’s me, right now, with this report from Food Safety News. I just can’t sit in this thing alone. It’s too much. I’m not even going to attempt to pepper in some context…

Pizza Hut and Little Caesars bringing back p’blasts from the p’ast Pizza Hut and Little Caesars bringing back p’blasts from the p’ast

It’s a big news day for lovers of franchise chains that sell pizza and/or pizzapizza. Maybe the hint of spring in the wind prompted the keepers of the Pizza Hut and Little Caesars vaults to throw open the windows and dust off some old favorites.

Hey Aidy Bryant and Lolly Adefope, is a hot dog a sandwich? Hey Aidy Bryant and Lolly Adefope, is a hot dog a sandwich?

It’s a good time to be in the Aidy Bryant business.

Yes, she’s the star of Hulu’s acclaimed new series, loosely…

Jacques Pépin is one-quarter of the way to an EGOT  Jacques Pépin is one-quarter of the way to an EGOT 

You can keep your white noise machines and your ocean sounds. When I want to feel comforted and peaceful and relaxed, I listen to British people reading audiobooks and watch Jacques Pépin make omelets.

Pyrex goes 50-percent deeper in new casserole dishes and we have thoughts Pyrex goes 50-percent deeper in new casserole dishes and we have thoughts

We love a freakin’ casserole ‘round these parts. We think about them, we write about them, we dream about them, we cook them, eat them, and get stuck in our feelings about them. So it’s probably not surprising that we have some thoughts about the latest from the bakeware wizards at Pyrex. Pyrex Deep is, per a press…

Burger King launches $5 a month coffee subscription Burger King launches $5 a month coffee subscription

Jake and Charles get some Best Bud time as Ike Barinholtz swings by the Nine-Nine Jake and Charles get some Best Bud time as Ike Barinholtz swings by the Nine-Nine

“Adoption is complicated,” Charles tells Jake late in “Gintars,” a solid, if not dazzling, episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine that gets better on examination. And he’s right—for many families, it is. But “Gintars” doesn’t attempt to dissect or explain the ins and outs of Nikolaj’s connection with the titular weirdo, or to…

Drizly wants to bring you some weed, man  Drizly wants to bring you some weed, man 

Drizly, the app that connects drinkers with retailers who deliver alcohol, wants to bring you your legal weed, should you be so inclined.

A man and a horse lay sprawled on the ground. Dust swirls around them. One has a knee in his back. A tranquilizer begins to flow through the veins of the other. The perpendicular world slows and bears down at once. It’s chaos above, but there in the dirt, the man is arrested by what he sees. The moment crystallizes,…
