Helpful Tips for Healthy Eating

These tips on eating healthy are kind of informative! H/T Pleated Jeans

Taco Licking Good

A Taco Bell employee who worked at the Ridgecrest, California location posted a picture on Facebook of him licking an entire stack of taco shells. The picture has since gone viral, although he has gone bye-bye after being fired by the fast-food chain.

Inmate Goes Loco Over Taco

Gary Cole, an inmate at a maximum security prison, claims he came up with idea for Doritos Locos tacos and the fast food chain Taco Bell stole it.

Is It the Real Thing?

Georgia antique dealer Cliff Kluge says he may have stumbled onto Coke’s secret recipe after he bought a box of old papers at the estate auction of a famous Georgia chemist. Kluge thinks the document is the real article and intends to sell it for up to $15 million. However, not everyone is convinced, and Coca Cola’s representatives say it is probably a recipe for an imitation cola drink.

New York’s Nanny Freaks

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is a diehard nanny, but he’s certainly got plenty of company among New York’s seemingly bottomless pool of control freaks. Reason.TV’s┬áNanny of the Month for April comes from Eastchester, New York where a local official wasn’t satisfied with outlawing traditional fast-food joints like McDonald’s and Burger King. He decided to kick it up a notch and shield locals from “fast casual” restaurants like Panera Bread and Chipotle. And to think these newcomers, with their earth tones and organic offerings, thought they could stave off the taste police!

The Paleo Diet Delusion

“The fact is that organisms are never perfectly suited to their environment,” says evolutionary biologist Marlene Zuk, “the way evolution works is through a whole series of compromises and jerry-rigged solutions based on what was there before.”

Zuk sat down with ReasonTV’s Tracy Oppenheimer to discuss her findings in her new book Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us about Sex, Diet, and How We Live. She says that the paleo diet, philosophy and lifestyle overlook “a lot of really cool stuff that’s been happening in evolution.”

Bronx Cheer for Bloomberg

Now that Hugo Chavez has croaked, is there a bigger boob left on the planet than New York’s Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg? He envisions himself as a benevolent do-gooder, but his meddlesome over-regulation of everything under the sun showcases his true character as the ultimate control freak. New Yorkers should give him the Bronx cheer, but they better be careful how loudly they protest or else he’ll fine them for exceeding healthy decibel limits.

Why Cats Can’t Taste Sweets

Do cats prefer sardines or sweets? Bytesize Science explains why cats, unlike humans and other mammals, are indifferent to sweet flavors.

Nanny Bloomberg Strikes Again

New Yorkers have a reputation for being fiercely independent. Strange they should elect a mayor who might be the biggest nanny and paternalistic boob on the planet. Having already gone after cigarettes, trans-fat, baby’s formula and soft drinks, now New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to ban Styrofoam cups. Perhaps it’s a good thing Hostess went bankrupt, or else you could bet before his term was up, Bloomberg would be leading a crusade against Ding Dongs and Twinkies.

Vegetarian Ham

Joe Dan Gorman, the sneaky weasel, extols the virtues of Chinese vegetarian ham, the tube steak we’ll all be eating in the future if we keep borrowing billions of dollars from China. On a more serious note, Joe Dan demonstrates how the Republicans and Democrats have morphed into two branches of the same party. One branch openly declares its intentions to screw the public. The other branch bends over and permits the massacre. Watch Intellectual Froglegs and learn.
