Yesterday I stopped by a Rite-Aid in East Memphis and happened upon a chest-high stack of these:
As I stood there gawking, an employee came by and said it was like the commercial. I said I was unfamiliar with the commercial and then we proceeded to press all the buttons we could reach. It was a cacophony of Filet-o-Fish.
On the back of this bag of Cedar's Spinach Wraps are "3 Steps to Wrapping Success!"
I want wrapping success, really I do, but that illustration ...
"Yes, we have quite a bit more ice cream in stock," says Michael Phillips, assistant manager of the Black Road store in East Memphis.

A trio of links today all about hot dogs.
Stacey Greenberg, a frequent contributor to the Flyer's food section, sent me this link from The Riverfront Times food blog Gutcheck titled "20 Unholy Recipes: Dishes So Awful We Had to Make Them."
Writer Robin Wheeler cooks up alarming recipes from old cookbooks. Pictured above is Jellied Bouillon with Frankfurters.
Spotted this drink-specials card at lunch today at the Blue Monkey downtown.
WTH?, I thought. Turns out, Caucasian is also known as a White Russian. And ... the Dude of The Big Lebowski uses the two names interchangeably.
... Not the Super Bowl, silly. This is the Guac Bowl, a freakishly imaginative guacamole contest held each year on game day by a group of friends in L.A.
Winner of this year's "Icarus Award" — "for the guac that soars closest to the sun, only to fall the farthest" — went to GWARcamole.
There's a picture of Smokey on the bag, and my heart raced at the idea that they might be dog-flavored! Alas, they're Zapp's "Regular" flavor, though there's nothing to complain about that.
Proceeds from the chip sales, according to the bag, go to "scholarships, athletics, and general funding of the university."
Ike's has them on sale for 2 for $3.
I think I’m possessed. It started with the slow-braised ribs and grits from Felicia Suzanne’s, and now the words slow braised hypnotize my senses. Once I spot them on a menu, I can’t order anything else.
See's Candies opened a temporary "gift center" in the Wolfchase Gallery last week.
Finally! Something useful on Hungry Memphis.

My friend, who lived in Memphis for years before moving to the Big City, decided that while he was here he'd throw all gastroenterological caution to the wind and eat his favorite Southern foods three times a day.

Paul and Angela of From the Southern Table blog about rendering lard from 15 pounds of pig back fat.
My reaction is equal parts ew and awe. Plus, the post has given me a great idea for my next blog: pigautopsy.com.
