Way Too Much Jesus

Just bought Buttholeville Homeboy Chris Lilly's BBQ book. It is a great read.

Must have for your cookbook collection.

Amazon.com: Big Bob Gibson's BBQ Book: Recipes and Secrets from a Legendary Barbecue Joint: Chris Lilly: Books:

"Winners of the World Championship BBQ Cook-Off for six years in a row and with hundreds of other contest ribbons as well, nobody does barbecue better than Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama. Chris Lilly, executive chef of Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q and great-grandson-in-law of Big Bob himself, now passes on the family secrets in this quintessential guide to barbecue.

From dry rubs to glazes and from sauces to slathers, Lilly gives the lowdown on Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q's award-winning seasonings and combinations. You’ll learn the unique flavors of different woods and you’ll get insider tips on creating the right heat—be it in a charcoal grill, home oven, or backyard ground pit. Then, get the scoop on pulled pork, smoked beef brisket, pit-fired poultry, and, of course, ribs.

Complete the feast with sides like red-skin potato salad and black-eyed peas. And surely you’ll want to save room for Lilly’s dessert recipes such as Big Mama’s Pound Cake. Loaded with succulent photographs, easy-to-follow instructions, and colorful stories, Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ Book honors the legacy of Big Bob Gibson—and of great barbeque."

On to the serious stuff.

H/T to Osborne Ink:

Bitch, Please.: An Open Letter to Anti-Choicers:

"Just remember one thing: not a one of us babykillers have ever killed one of you.

We don't go into your 'Pregnancy Help Centers' and blow them up so you can stop scaring girls into having children they can't take care of and then forgetting about them and blaming them when they fall through the cracks of the system.

We don't shoot at your hatemongering pastors as they go into their places of worship, even though we know they'll be spewing more lies and filth about us and how evil we are and how we deserve to die, even though you all don't really get the irony of calling yourselves 'Pro-Life,' which you are decidedly not.

We don't block the doors to your doctors' offices, preventing you from getting your Viagra prescription so you can force your wife to submit to you, as every good Christian woman should.

And we don't fire your fucking asses for preventing women from obtaining access to medications that are prescribed to them privately, between them and their doctors, that have nothing to do with you, or your religion, or how many babies' souls you want to save today so you can meet your quota at the next potluck circlejerk."

Silly Olbermann. Doesn't he know the we in the U.S. don't do 'accountability' anymore?

Olbermann: ‘Quarantine’ Fox News for inciting hate:

"Call a man a baby killer, a Nazi, like al-Qaeda, like Stalin, like Hitler, do it for four years,” Olbermann continued. “Then, the last part of the ingredient, act surprised when somebody shoots the man.”

“A television channel that repeatedly branded those it criticized politically as baby killers, as executioners, as equivalents of Nazis, Hitler, Mao Zedong, al-Qaeda, Stalin,” the MSNBC host continues. “A television channel that repeatedly all but encouraged its viewers commit a religious jihad against one of those it criticized. Something from the extremists in the Middle East, the product of fiction? No, it is elsewhere on your television, and it is time that it be stopped peacefully before it enables the death of another George Tiller.”"

It's a little too little, it's a little too late.

But, thanks for the effort... I guess.

Frank Schaeffer: How I (and Other "Pro-Life" Leaders) Contributed to Dr. Tiller's Murder:

"The same hate machine I was part of is still attacking all abortionists as 'murderers.' And today once again the 'pro-life' leaders are busy ducking their personal responsibility for people acting on their words. The people who stir up the fringe never take responsibility. But I'd like to say on this day after a man was murdered in cold blood for preforming abortions that I -- and the people I worked with in the religious right, the Republican Party, the pro-life movement and the Roman Catholic Church, all contributed to this killing by our foolish and incendiary words.

I am very sorry."

Check out the picture. Pretty neat.

Bird uses body as dam to stop drainpipe soaking chicks - Telegraph:

"The Mistle Thrush had built her nest on top of a downpipe, blocking the water's passage and causing the gutter to flood.

But desperate to protect her young, she puffed herself up to twice her size and sat in the drainpipe to stop the tide of rain water swamping the nest.

She was so occupied with her task that her mate was left to feed her and their young."
