Irish seven-course meal: a six-pack and a potato...

Would a little butter make it candy-ass?

Sausage, you could enjoy this with a bottle of Domaine Weinbach Tokay Pinot Gris Quintessence Grans Nobles Cuvee Centenaire (about $95), or like MR says: a sixer of Pabst .

BE: Butter: no. Ranch: yes.

Oh yeah: instruction point number 2 is the most important component in the entire movement.

Finally somethin's on this damn blog that I can cook.

I was wondering if would be inappropriate to dunk the potato in some sour cream--just to help the salt stick, of course. I'm also sensing the need to wash it down with a little Irish whiskey.

Erin continues to shake the art world with her latest work: Potato With Salt.

Amazingly, she is able to evoke the image of a cow, a field, a passing train...yet leaving those unseen. Much like the camel hidden behind the pyramid on the dollar bill.

How she manages to pull this off is what draws the art community to her. She has hidden talents that we have yet to figure out.

By all means, Erin. I love that there's another Erin here!

Is it just me, or do Phil and DDP represent opposite ends of a spectrum that I implicitly understand despite their diametric opposition?

JeSUS it's awful early for this sort of crap.
