    We were calling it Mexican poutine, which is a fantastic name.  Whoever is in charge of Frito-pie needs a better PR person.
    can i call poutine Canadian nachos then?
    But then what would you call our nachos?

    I'll put a plate of Sneaky Dee's nachos up against any nachos in the world!  It recently came out that an application was put in to develop the block that Sneaky Dee's is on and literally everyone in Toronto lost their minds.

    "Long-time indie music hotspot and legendary nachos purveyor..." that's right mo-fos the 6ix is the home of legendary nachos!

    It's the Toronto Star, they have to be apolitical to avoid accusations of bias but everyone knows that Sneaky Dee's (also called Sleazy Disease) is the best.  Just because California has the Mexican-grandmother-with-a-secret-family-recipe market covered doesn't mean that a punk-rock dive bar in the frozen North can't go toe to toe eer...plate to plate...with the best of 'em.

    Aside from the legendary nachos this place really used to be one of the best places in the world to hang out.  It's still great, but in the 90's and early 2000's it was the best.  You used to be able to get a pitcher of beer and a plate of nachos for $15, and for $20 you could get into whatever show was happening in the concert hall upstairs.  I've probably seen over 100 shows there.  I saw bands like Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene there for $5.  The bands that play there the most get meals named after them.  The band Fucked Up have the "Fucked Up Breakfast" on the menu, the Cancer Bats have "The Destroyer" and Lights has the "Cactus in the Valley" nachos. 

    It's safe and friendly now, but back in the day it was a little dangerous - fights were common there, inside, outside, it didn't matter.  They ended up hiring a former pro wrestler named Bloody Bill Skullion to get things under control, as well as a future pro wrestler named Test (I think his name was Jamie?).  Those guys didn't 'escort you out' - they threw you down the stairs.

    Spring veg! This box of (mostly) organic veg includes asparagus, broad beans and rocket (arugula) - three of my favourites. Broad bean and feta smash on sourdough toast with asparagus spears for breakfast tomorrow.

    I'm basic.  Lettuce, mayo, cheese, bacon, avo.  But give me some good shredded lettuce, no wilty leaf stuff.  Also, I toast the bun face down in butter, which gives it that extra yum factor.

    @Chinaski Lol, yes for some reason we haven’t found a weird slang word for burgers yet, they’re still just burgers.

  • This doesn't really fit anywhere else, so here is where I'll put it.

    Are any of you aware of the prolific writings of Dr. Chuck Tingle?  I just discovered him today on twitter, because he has released some free "Coronavirus responsible ebooks."  He writes erotic gay science fiction, often political.  A fill list of his titles is available here:  https://www.chucktingle.com/ebook.html

    Some stand outs: 
    "Pounded In The Butt By Area 51 While Attempting To Storm it"
    "Slammed In The Butt By My Sentient Plant Based Vegetarian Cheeseburger"
    "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Butt Raptor"
    "News Commentator Sam Hannity Pounded In The Butt By The Fact That He Didn't Disclose He Has The Same Lawyer As The President"
    "Pounded In The Butt By The Sentient Manifestation Of My Own Ignorant Climate Change Denial"
    "Not Pounded At The Last Second Because Consent Can Be Given And Revoked At Any Moment And This is A Wonderful Thing That's Important To Understand"


    The free PDF's are available here: https://www.chucktingle.com/getwellsoon.html
    They are titled:
    "My Handsome Sentient Face Mask Protects Me Despite The Ridiculous Conspiracy Theories That He Won't Also he Pounds My Butt"
    "Bisexual Vampire Unicorns Teach Me The Importance Of The Vampire Cough"
    "Not Pounded By Anything While I Practice Responsible Social Distancing"
    and
    "The Physical Manifestation Of Washing My Hands Gets Me Off"

    The synopsis for "Not Pounded By Anything While I Practice Responsible Social Distancing" is:  

    As an illness know as the trotting plague sweeps the nation, Bill is taking all the necessary precautions. The most difficult one for him to implement, however, is social distancing. At first Bill is content to simply avoid large crowds, but when he finds himself trotting, a symptom of the trotting plague, he decides to self-quarantine entirely.
     
    It’s not easy to cease all in-person social activity, especially when Bill has three upcoming dates this weekend. As the dates arrive at his house and Bill turns them away, however, he beings to realize just how understanding his loved ones are in this time of crisis. He also realizes just how much he’s going to get done over the next few weeks, and discovers that there are much worse fates than some time on his own.
     
    After not getting pounded by anything while he practices responsible social distancing, Bill discovers the most important date of all was a date with himself.
     
    This no sex tale is 4,100 words of self-quarantine action, including learning safe habits, respecting boundaries, and doing your part for the health and safety of others.

    (Important author's note: In story, unlike cover, dinosaur does not come inside)


    Now get to reading!

    Iyess! I hope we get a few “story” (the one where each kid comes up with a story) episodes this season. Those and their holiday episodes are always the best

    @Hatorian The one where they are trying to get Gayle to take them to the “Cirque de Soleil but with cats” and Louise does the Game of Thrones parody is great. The White Talkers, lol.
