Red Beard Takes On Flacco Libre

This past Saturday two nemesaries squared off in a gastronomical challenge for the ages. On one side there was the ever feared Red Beard, standing at 6’3″ and weighing in at a measly 350 lbs. On the other side we have the snappy Flacco Libre standing a mere 6’0″ and weighing in at a lofty 128 lbs. There could not be another diametrically opposed duo to battle it out at the table than these two.

After much smack talk back and forth between the contestants about who could eat more (obviously everyone and their mother would give odds to Red Beard), they came to the conclusion that pizza would be the most enjoyable to them. The challenge would be held at the wonderful Ledo Pizza in Seabrook.

The folks at Ledo Pizza advocated this tremendous event by offering to supply the brave with two large pizzas to tackle in under one hour. The pizzas would each have 2 toppings…their choices…Red Beard went with double pepperoni on both (cooked crisp)…whice Flacco Libre attempted to be more tactical in his approach, he divided his in half going with a 1/2 Hawaiian, 1/2 chicken & onion and the other 1/2 sausage & mushroom, 1/2 pepperoni & olive.

The pizzas came out piping hot and delicious. The battle was to commence. The two gave each other a nod and dug in. Within the first 15 minutes the two were neck and neck and going strong. They occasionally would give a verbal jab here and there showing their confidence. Which would come out on top?

Top 5 Martha Stewart Guest Appearances (w/ Conan)

There are few more awkward and hilarious things than watching Martha Stewart try to keep her composure around an unruly guest. We’ve compiled the top 5 of the bunch for your viewing pleasure. From the S&M Cookie Monster to Amy Sedaris being called Martha Stewart on crack, “I’ve never done crack…I’ve only sold it.”

There is hardly a more hilarious moment on daytime TV than when And Dick, with his head inside a pumpkin, smashes it against the table. The only thing that might top it is Snoop teaching, a presumably 95% white audience, the necessary vocabulary of the day,  “fo shizzle,” “what’s crackalackin,” “chuuuch,” “all-hood,” and “ball till you fall” or pretty much every second of the Conan appearance. Now grab your apron and follow along over at Top Cultured.

I Was On Conan, Seriously!!!

I can officially now die a happy man. A creation of mine has been mentioned by Conan O’Brien on The Tonight Show. I hate to be the one to outshine Michael Cera (the secondary guest) but someone had to do it.

Mr. O’Brien speaks of the fabled Burger King Double Bacon Rodeo State Fair Cheeseburger from our Will They Build It? Series. Our other attempts have been the Taco Bell Nacho Cheesy Blackjack Volcano Gordita Crunch and the McDonald’s Big McSausage Egg Surf & Turf Mac. Make sure to check back in this week to see the next in the series. There was also are Burger King Whooper Windows 7 Burger Hacked & Unlocked.

He mentions the site and I would love to have that domain but sadly it’s taken. Without further ado….my 15 seconds of fame:

The Making of the Perfect Hamburger (Infograph)

The burger aficionados over at A Hamburger Today have been doing weekly polls on what eaters want in a burger. We’ve taken the data (with their permission of course, thanks guys!), crunched the numbers and have come up with the perfect burger…and also what would presumably be the least appetizing burger. Not sure how you’re going to accomplish that deep-fried 1 1/2 inch thick rare burger but I know I wouldn’t want to try it.

If Fast Food Coupons Told the Truth

Recently there has been a strong push by legislators to bring transparency and honesty to the fast food industry. A few restaurants have taken it upon themselves to embrace this. I’ve been seeing more and more of these coupons that are really quite honest.

These are based on actual coupons and would love to know if someone out there can pass one of these off and actually use it to get a discount.

Head over to Top Cultured to see the coupons….and add me on Twitter @HeesaPhadie!


Where: Burger King
What: 2 Rodeo Cheeseburgers with 9 Funnel Cake Sticks
