A little lame duck with your Italian?


At the official, black-tie Columbus Day dinner at the White House, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi got so carried away blowing hugs and kisses to our plodding prez that he destroyed the very podium from which he spoke.

Everyone just laughed and laughed because it’s funny when visiting dignitaries get drunk and make fools of themselves! What would have made it even better would have been if he’d set something on fire or groped Nancy Pelosi or somesuch, but hey – we can’t have everything, right?
::: Oh rich people — you DO amuse me! :::

“I’m 100 percent confident that we’ll be friends forever,” Berlusconi gushed to the Grand Poobah of the New Great Depression.
::: they are totally bff’s 4EVAR!!! :::

Then the buddies and their out of touch, filthy rich, fatcat politicians honored guests got down to business!

They feasted on Delicata Squash Soup with Citron, Maine Lobster Fondue, Artichoke and Reggiano Cheese Ravioli, Rosemary-crusted Elysian Farm Lamb, Crispy Eggplant and Swiss Chard, Chocolate Napoleon and washed it all down with $110-a-bottle Robert Mondavi Cabernet “Reserve” 2005, Iron Horse “Russian River Cuvée” 2003 and Ponzi Chardonnay “Reserve” 2005.

Over dessert, the hoity toities talked about those annoying collasping world markets that are putting pressure on their portfolios and passingly pondered the plight of the little people … all of which made it a ‘working dinner’ they’ll write off on their taxes next year.

Oh the sacrificed life of the public servant …

A new take on the ‘Muffin Top’


Frost your own cupcakes at Duffy\'s

Someone at Duffy’s corporate really thought this was a good idea: Do It Yourself Dessert.

Plop three dry cupcakes on a plate and ‘let’ the customer pay to frost them – and check the price! Those are some expensive unfinished cupcakes.

When I asked our server how popular the nakey cakes were – she said she has never taken an order for them since the promotion came out.

It’s kind of comforting to know we really aren’t  that lazy … OR that stupid.
Yay consumers!
