Sugar Or Salt Or Who Gives A Shit Because Grits Don’t Matter Enough To Have This Debate » VSB

Here are four commonly accepted and agreed on facts about grits.

1. The base color is off-white2. It’s one of the few words where both the singular (grit) and the plural (grits) versions of it are fun to say (You could even argue that grit is a better word than a food)3. Many Black people and quite a few White people seem to have a raving and monomaniacal obsession with them4. They can be a good accompaniment to a meal if prepared and seasoned the proper way and/or placed with an appropriate meatHere is one more fact about grits that isn’t as commonly accepted and agreed on (but is still a fact)

The 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner – Larry Wilmore Bombed, Stanked, And Tanked

Opinion From Geo

 

I don’t need to see any poles or talk to anyone about this. The host of The Nightly Show, Larry Wilmore was out of his element on stage at The 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. He went joke after joke only to sink deeper into the abyss of stone faces, blank stares, and moans, and headshakes.

Wilmore’s ship got stuck at the  dock from the git go when he opened with,

 “Welcome to Negro night here at the Washington Hilton” he begins. “Or as Fox news will report, ‘Two thugs disrupt elegant dinner in DC.”

MainMuck: Locally Sourced, as in, Same Solar System

Remember in “The Matrix” when Morpheus leans in close and asks Neo: “You think that’s air you’re breathing?” Now replace Morpheus with the Tampa Bay Times, and “air” with “locally sourced food” and you pretty much have the Times’ “Farm to Fable” investigative series.

We’ve got you covered with the four W’s: What? Wait for it. What else? And Why?: Continue reading “SRSLY: That Wild Alaskan Pollock Is Frozen Chinese Pollock?”

Happy Sunday! Bedside Baptist, St. Mattress Parishioners, Presbyterian Pillow Attendees

Sunday morning sleeping heathens and transgressors this one is for you.

Bedside Baptist  St. Mattress Pillow Presbyterian, The Church of Holy Slumber,  on a Sunday morning?

These are clever ways of saying that you slept in and missed church! Ah, yes. Good old Bedside Baptist, where Pastor Pillow and Deacon Sheets preside with somnolent gravity.

Among some communities of Christians, it’s virtually a mortal sin to miss church for no good reason, and so several playful metaphors have arisen in the past 50 years to downplay the fact that you missed church.

Instead of saying that you slept in, you can jokingly admit that you were actually attending another church—Bedside Baptist, St. Mattress, or a variety of other places.

Who needs to know that the church was nothing more than your bedposts and pillow and comforter! It’s just like telling your friends you were at St. Arbucks on a Sunday morning, when you were really nose-deep in a frothy cappuccino and the morning paper.

Crusty eyes, bologna breath and all.

Ya sleeping asses get clapped back at Bedside Baptist, St. Mattress
