Top Chef DC Recap: Episode 2, Out of the Lunch Box

Top-chef-cleaver It is week two of Top Chef DC and our chefs are back in the kitchen - and this week they are pissy.

Who wants to see if I am physically capable of doing a three minute "Top Chef" recap?

A Cease And Desist on Unicorn Meat?! Someone's Been Reading MamaPop

Unicorns  You all know how we feel about unicorns here at MamaPop. We love them. The sparklier, the better. So when ThinkGeek came up with "Canned Unicorn Meat" this writer was torn. I mean, hee, but...Well now they've been served a cease and desist letter.

Top Chef DC Recap: Episode 1, The First One


Yes, I am excited. Of course the first episode is always a cluster you-know-what with 17 chefs to introduce us to and trying to get as many shots with the Capitol in the background as humanly possible.

Shut up. I can be cynical about Washington D.C. landmarks if I feel like it. I live here.

*spoiler alert*

"Top Chef DC" Preview: Chef Fun Facts!

Top Chef DC  I hope nobody was disappointed that I haven't been recapping "Top Chef Masters" but I have trouble tearing people apart who are already successful and doing all of these challenges for charity. That being said, next week "Top Chef DC" begins and I have zero issues making fun of folks who are on reality tv for profit, and I cannot wait.

Remember the Mascots

Trix-rabbit Do you remember the days of mascots? What happened to them, where did they go and why have we been left behind? Did they all get picked up by aliens and taken to a better place? Perhaps! Then again, perhaps the mascots simply died off in some kind of mascot holocaust.

In Six Days, KFC Will Change Your Life

Kfc-double-down Or not. I don't know. It all depends on how eager you were to break free from the oppression of bread. I do know that the name of KFC's new sandwich, the Double Down, makes me think of Vince Vaughan's character in Swingers and I really wish that their ad campaign for the sandwich included some neo-lounge admonishment of consumers that they don't need bread because, "OUR BABY'S ALL GROWN UP!"

Weird Movie Snacks: How About Some Fish Balls With Your 'Avatar'?

Movie-fish-balls My kids always give me crap when we go to the movies and I ask for 'layered popcorn' which is when they squirt fake butter on top and in the middle of the tub. Because who wants to eat half of their popcorn and then realize there's no more yellow chemical substance for that last portion? Not I. But layered popcorn isn't half as strange as some of these movie theater snacks -- fish balls and beer anyone?

Top Chef: Just Desserts

20081106_gailsimmons_560x375 It would appear that Bravo has been reading my diary again. The network has begun casting for a show called Top Chef: Just Desserts.

Mmmmm. Just desserts.

Bork! Bork! Bork! Or: How I Learned To Stop Being Afraid and Embrace Swedish Contributions To Our Culture

Swedish-chef The possible demise of Saab - thanks, GM! Good work! - does more than signal the potential end of a beloved-by-some automotive brand whose Scandinavian roots and design quirks established it as a driveway staple in... uh... driveways across... uh... Scandinavia. And, also, carefully demographically defined segments of North America. It also serves as a reminder of the great and subtle ways that Sweden has infiltrated multiple aspects of our culture, popular and otherwise.

Top Chef Las Vegas Recap: The Reunion Episode

Picture 1 The reunion show. Unless you are talking Real Housewives these shows are usually boring as hell, but I watch them every time.

Plus this year there was that teaser about Kevin almost quitting in the middle of the season.

Domino's Pizza Resurrecting the Noid

The_noid Until I had heard about this the other day, I had blissfully forgotten about Domino's ill-conceived advertising campaign of the late 1980s. But now, the Noid is making a slow comeback. And...argh!
