Afternoon Snack: YouTube cook Hilah Cooking was bummed to learn this week that Chick-Fil-A president Jim Cathy opposes gay marriage (the fast-food chain gave $1.7 million to anti-gay groups in 2009 alone).
So Hilah whipped up a quick video that shows us how to make the chain’s fried chicken sandwich at home — with ”less sugar, less salt, and less funding for anti-human-equality organizations.”
She calls it the Chick-Fil-Gay.
Sandusky Scandal Tweet of the Day: Actor Albert Brooks is no stranger to Twitter-related controversy, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he’d have something to say after Thursday’s release of the Freeh report.
The damning report implicates Penn State’s “Big Four” in failing to report on Jerry Sandusky’s conduct, going as far as to say they “never demonstrated… any concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky’s victims.”
While Brooks didn’t actually come up with the aptly worded Joe Paterno burn (a response to calls for Paterno’s statue at Penn State to come down), it still carries significant weight in that takes a potshot at the man whose once-golden reputation has been obliterated in recent months.
I saw one today at On The Route in Chicago… full on bike lust ensued.
