Devil's Food 

The rib is undeniably the most sacred bone there is. If not for Adam’s holy rack there would be no woman. If there had been no women, there would be no Hooter's, and if there were no Hooter's, there would be no hot wings, and across America there would be great weeping and gnashing of chicken-starved teeth.

And now my friends, at this most sacred time of year — The Memphis in May Barbecue Festival —Yankee devil-people are trying to steal the Lord’s favorite bone from the humble Southern God-fearing grillers of this once proud nation. For this reason and more, the Flyer is boycotting the devil-looking-person from Martha’s Vinyard and his heretically named Web site, And we’re especially boycotting their sinfully delicious mac and cheese.
