MKR is to “celebrating kitchens”, @franksting , as cane toad races are to a documentary by SIr David Attenborough.

RT @R_Chirgwin: So much better to tell St Peter “I blogged the word ‘cunt’ a great many times”! :-) [My strategy, yes. Protestant school.]

via Janetter for Mac

Just imagine turning up at the Gates, St Peter asks you what you’ve accomplished. “Producer of My Kitchen Rules”, you say. Uhuh.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @steven_noble Actually, forcing the chefs to work with the carcass of a horse that had died of exposure is not a bad idea [Yes!]

via Plume for Android

The great thing about Twitter is that every single person you meet is so much smarter, better educated and better informed than you are.

The way they go on about cooking on these chef TV shows you’d think they were relieving the siege of Stalingrad.

I have been reliably informed that the sirloin steak I am currently eating does not come from Ikea.

via Janetter for Mac

Reading NYPD crime stats (for this week’s column) and they have a category “misdemeanour sex crimes”. Um, OK. 55 this week.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @johnthelutheran: They could call it HØRS. [They could. They should.]

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Ikea is the original Stockholm Syndrome.

via Janetter for Mac

@PaulCunningham Salsa is a euphemism for which animal waste product?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PaulCunningham

Maybe Ikea could just provide various animal parts and a spatula in a flat pack so you could assemble it into a “meal” when you get home.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m still having trouble with the concept of going to a do-your-own-assembly furniture store for food.

RT @jonoabroad: The reality is, most of us don’t own guns. [Yeah well that’s the problem right there.]

@MattSainsb Absolutely. And I fully support your free-speech right to have a loud cranky whinge about the inconveniences in your life.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb Plus I think we have it pretty damn good. I walked to the pub this arvo and not a single person was shooting at me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb No, I think it’s just that I accept that what *I* would like isn’t the only factor affecting how the world works.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb CityRail is my main way of getting around, actually. And I get plenty done en route. Or just enjoy the view. [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb Sorry (well, not sorry), but I simply don’t understand why a few minutes either way is such a huge issue. Straining at gnats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb Spending a few minutes longer on a train doesn’t kill you a decade earlier than expected either. Why the impatience?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb @barryofarrell Yeah I know, a few minutes longer than expected on a train is pretty much worse than the Holocaust. Poor petal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb

@MattSainsb @barryofarrell I call bullshit. ~45 working days so far this year. You’ve been delayed more than 3 hours per day? Yeah sure.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MattSainsb
