Looks like this guy wasn’t using his noodle.
Randy Zipperer, 49, is accused of stabbing his younger brother following an argument about missing macaroni and cheese.
A witness told deputies in Volusia County, Fla. that Randy and his brother, 47-year-old Edward Zipperer, started arguing over Randy’s missing macaroni and cheese, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported. His younger brother helped him look, but during the mac-hunt, Edward knocked over a beer Randy had been drinking.
The spill allegedly made Randy even angrier, and deputies say he began waving around a knife that wound up inserted in his brother’s stomach. Read more on Huffington Post…
Stage 1: Skepticism. You sit down at what’s supposedly the best deep dish pizza restaurant in all of Chicago and think to yourself, There’s no way I’ll like this better than New York pizza. I like my crust thin. I like to be able to fold my slice in half and eat it while I text and Instagram and walk the dog. What the hell does Chicago know about pizza that New York doesn’t? And then you sit and wait until your pizza arrives. It takes a good 30 minutes, and you don’t care how friendly the waiter is (FINE, the people in Chicago are nicer), no pizza is worth waiting more than half an hour for. You have other things to do. Like, try Italian beef. What are they doing back there, making the crust a quarter of a millimeter at a time?
Stage 2: Playing it cool. The pizzas arrive, piping hot and smelling better than bacon on New Year’s morning and you have an automatic salivary response. Your stomach churls and lurches, but your face shows none of it. Smell isn’t everything. You are going to reserve your enthusiasm for the first bite.
Stage 3: Loss of decorum. Despite your resolve not to like this bastard form of pizza, you’ve bitten down on a slice of pillowy, saucy, crunchy deep dish cheese with pepperoni, and you’re experiencing a mini-blackout. All of your pleasure centers are responding at once. You are floating through cloud crusts, sailing through a pepperoni sea. You are lulled to sleep on a bed of sauce and tucked into a blanket of mozzarella. And no pain or harm can come to you. Now or ever again. The world is not such a bad place after all as long as deep dish pizza stays in your mouth forever. You don’t care if it’s all over your face. You don’t care if you’ve brought the plate up to your face and you are licking it. You are alone with the pizza. Just you and the pizza for eternity. Keep reading »

Just when you thought people had run out of ways to dress up a simple hamburger, something like the lasagna-bun burger comes along. Created by Philadelphia restaurant PYT, the lasagna-bun burger forgoes the classic burger bun for something a bit richer: two thick slices of deep-friend lasagna. The generously portioned beef patty in the middle is seasoned like a meatball and topped with provolone cheese and marinara sauce, and the massive finished product is served with a side of fries, obviously. My mind is kind of disgusted by this, but it’s hard to hear my rational thoughts over the incessant growling of my stomach. I’ve gotta get myself to Philly. [Huffpo]
Pizza people, never stop trying to make pizza bigger, better and more delicious, okay? That’s what the folks at Domino’s have done, with a new DVD disk that smells like pizza. Brazilian advertising firm Artplan created the disks, which somehow make a pizza smell when you stick them in your DVD player. Right now, the pizza disks are only available in Brazil (so lucky) at a few different video stores around Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, but hopefully they’ll make their way up north soon, so I can have some snack-o-vision in my life.
