Dana bought beans


Dana bought twelve 16-oz cans of beans. THAT'S 192 ounces of beans! 6 GALLONS OF BEANS! 1,586,457 FREAKIN' BEANS!

If Dana laid each bean end to end in Canal Street... PEOPLE WOULD THINK HE WAS CRAZY.

Canal Street is  is a major thoroughfare in the city of New Orleans. Here is a post card:

Blue Runner promises that these are the best tasting beans "this side of Canal Street." But Dana and I live on OPPOSITE SIDES of Canal Street so this makes NO SENSE AT ALL.

From the Blue Runner website:
It’s a tradition like no other in Southern Louisiana. It’s Monday. It’s red beans and rice. It’s what’s for dinner.

Red beans and rice became a staple Monday meal when Monday was washday. Since red beans and rice don’t require much attention (just a lot of time!), it became the ideal meal to sit simmering while the wash was getting done. While we don’t all spend Mondays doing laundry any longer, South Louisiana and New Orleans still loves that Monday bean routine.

Traditional pairings include smoked sausage, but tons of different foods go well with red beans and rice, whether it’s a pork chop, fried seafood, ham shanks, hot sausage, fried chicken/chicken livers. Top your meal off with some cornbread and greens, and you have a true New Orleans meal.

Slightly more chilling was this:

Tuesday, April 1, 2014 puppet

Ken posted this on Twitter today:
Remember this guy:
From wiki: hired the San Francisco office of TBWA\Chiat\Day to design its advertising campaign. The firm had recently created the popular Taco Bell chihuahua. For they designed a doglike sock puppet that carried a microphone in its paw. The puppet, performed by Michael Ian Black (an alumnus of MTV's surrealist comedy sketch show The State), was a simple sock puppet with button eyes, flailing arms and a stick microphone emblazoned with "".
As the puppet's fame grew through 1999 and 2000, it gained almost cult status and widespread popularity. The puppet made an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America, Nightline, Live with Regis and Kathie Lee, and even had a balloon made in its image for the 1999 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. In addition to the media appearances the puppet made, merchandising was also done for the company including clothing, other trinkets, and a retail version of the sock puppet that delivered some of the puppet's famous lines.
The sock puppet toy was the last item available for order on the site at the time of its shutdown in 2000.

Here's a montage of the puppet... watch it and watch eBay for a chance to buy Ken's puppet:

It might me the new Talking Dennis Miller.
