SUMMER GRILLING TIP #6 (COOLER THAN A COMPRESSED CUCUMBER)

In these modern times of foodies and plated Picasso's - such as this abstract offering of Hamachi crudo, grapefruit vinaigrette and compressed cucumber*, whether you lube the grates with onion compote or not - you might want to go Flintstones with a big ass porterhouse, hobo potatoes and no frills corn on the cob (okay, add some grilled watermelon salad if you must!). However, if you're using propane instead of briquettes (yabba dabba doo), be sure to replace any rusted heat deflectors (flame tamers), lest you have to douse everything in sight with that open can of Pabst's. Of course, if you don't feel like a backyard charred steak, you can always go to a restaurant for some foraged stuff...

* As determined in a laboratory test.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE NAGY!

The birthday boy photographed at a Wolvesden dinner party less than a nanosecond before 'de-materializing' - only to 'reappear' in a parallel multiverse "Denny's." Sometimes transacting quantum waves (not to mention relatively independent sub-totalities) can be cruel. Something Joe found out all to well. Fortunately (though, rather inexplicably) he did have a printed coupon that survived the intraholographic leap. Unfortunately, the alternate Denny's didn't serve a Bacon Slamburger. But, today's a new day... Wait?.. Is it? Or is that just another illusion? Oh, whatever. Cheers from all of us on your 'birthday' my relatively independent sub-totality friend!
