“Some things are not worth exploring or explaining”

While I’m in a linking mood, Tweet of the week was from Cynicor, responding to some kkkrazy announcing he/she was off to breakfast with other pro-lifers: “Er– don’t eat the eggs.” And his photo illustration was also priceless. I won’t link to the nonsense the Coven Crier posted, though, on “yams.” This is “culinary journalism” in the age of the Google. Rather than drowning among unreliable sources online, why not make a phone call, or just pull down a solid reference and check your facts? Harold McGee, say, who writes what anyone who knows food knows. Americans eat sweet potatoes. Granny’s ass would not fit a true yam.
