Food for Thought - Random Thoughts of the Week

April 6, 2011

Ok, so I've been accumulating a whole bunch of random news about food and the world in general these past couple of weeks, and I figured now is as good a time as any to post it up: 

  • A rare story about when the intersection of "good for the environment, good for your stomach" hits:  I kind of want to wander down to the Florida Keys to try some lionfish now...

  • On a non-food note:  I know this girl has been splashed all over the web, but I kind of feel bad for her in a way: Just in case you haven't seen it yet (doubtful, but you never know), the music video for Friday is is one of those situations where the lyrics are so horrible, it is just hilarious ("Yesterday was Thursday, Today is Friday, Tomorrow is Saturday" still cracks me up). But she didn't write the lyrics, so don't blame her, blame Clarence Jey, the co-writer of the song. He evidently was trying to cash in on the whole teen Mylie Cyrus "Party in the USA" thing, but missed the target really, really badly. But, instead of him being associated with this crap-tastic song forever and ever, everyone is going to think of this poor girl's face instead!

The original music video for Friday:

And a really funny parody of the video by Conan O'Brien:

  • While on the topic of parodies, here is something extremely funny, but also food related - only Stephen Colbert could get Ben and Jerry to come on his show and shoot a homicidal ice cream cone (I also find Jon Stewart walking out with a bat really hilarious as well):
