Kings of Pastry


A bunch of MOFs

I'm throwing Kings of Pastry  out there because ~
  1. I probably felt more anxiety watching this competition than did  the pastry chefs competing in this cutthroat competition (held once every three years) to be acclaimed  a "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" (or M.O.F).
  2. I have neither the desire nor faculty to become a pastry chef, and I don't know why that is.  I can make cakes, but hate icing them. Do you know that I have never ever successfully  made candy?  Chocolate is more mysterious to me than a woman's bits. And not because I haven't spent 356 hours watching it done (chocolate) on the telly.
  3. Jacquy Pfeiffers girlfriend intrigues me for some reason.  .

The First Hooker?


shopping at Loehmann's?

Res Ipsa Loquitor

I can't figure this out.  It was originally titled "shoplifter," but I don't see it.  Looks more like she switched laundry detergent,  which caused such bad itching she had to shed the offending clothes.  I speak from unexaggerated experience here.  Or, maybe she's shopping at Loehmann's?

 What do you see? For them what need more nsfw detail ... .


No Way Obama


Chicagos Top Cop "We'll Shoot Carriers"


Res Ipsa Loquitor
Gives you the warm fuzzies don't it?

Chicago’s illustrious Police Chief, Superintendent or SuperNintendo ... said that citizens licensed to carry could be, and indeed predicted they would be shot by Chicago Police Officers.
Like that happens in 49 other states (or 56 other states if you listen to Barack Obama).
“I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.” [Full]

Is McCarthy the only big city chief of police that's not Black or female?  Just asking.  Anyway, Chicago's top cop immediately reminded me of this restaurant scene from  The Godfather .  Love the ending. Sic Semper, etc.

On the subject of Democrats and guns, did you see NY newspaper’s gun permit disclosure leads to burglary, new legislation?

A home burglary in White Plains, N.Y. that appears related to a newspaper’s recent publication of gun-permit holders will bring a legislative response Monday, in the form of a new bill aimed at banning similar public disclosures in the future.

The problems with knee jerk legislating  against (anything really) "similar public disclosures,"  are the unintended (or internded?) consequences,  when common sense and decency ought have  prevailed in the first case.
