Clearing out some more news chum — this time with something you can really chew on:
- Raw Dining. Or should I say: Naked. It appears there is a restaurant in France where one dines in the nude. Umm, no thanks. Just imagine if I spilled the soup.
- Tide Pods. You’ve surely heard about the Tide Pod Challenge by now. This is the EXTREMELY STUPID idea of teens attempting to put POISONOUS laundry detergent pods in their mouth. DO NOT DO IT. So what did one sushi bar do? That’s right, they made sushi that looks like a Tide Pod. Bad idea. Too bad CSI: is no longer on — I could see this being a great episode. [ETA: And it’s not just sushi: This article highlights “Tide Pod” Donuts, “Tide Pod” Pizza, “Tide Pod” Shots (and shows photoshopped “Tide Pod” Oreos and “Tide Pod” Lays Chips)].
- Words for Tea. It turns out there are only two words for tea through out the world: Tea (or a variant thereof) if it came by land, and Chi (or a variant thereof) if it came by sea. Isn’t language fascinating.
- Mongolian Barbeque. It seems that the man responsible for bringing Mongolian BBQ to America has died. Yes, John C. Lee, who started Colonel Lee Mongolian BBQ has died. I still remember the Col. Lee’s in Northridge, which I think became Kings, which is now some sort of Asian Fusion joint.
