Heady Stuff

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of arts and crafts megastore Hobby Lobby, determining that insurance purchased by businesses whose owners hold certain religious convictions doesn't have to include coverage for birth control. Meanwhile, over at Michael's on White Station, all of the wig stands are canoodling. Where creativity happens, indeed.

Neverending Elvis

The UK's Mail Online reports that Elvis' face has appeared in barbecue soot and can "clearly be seen charred onto a paving stone" following a cookout. "I shouted to my mate and said Elvis had come to see him," Chris Elliot of Burnley, Lancashire, is quoted as saying.

Eating Memphis

A proud Memphis culinary tradition was spotlighted in the national press this week when The Washington Post ran a story about one of the Bluff City's most popular smokehouse side dishes: barbecue spaghetti.  

"At its most basic, barbecue spaghetti is what you would think," the author begins, describing the dish as "barbecue sauce with pulled pork atop some pasta." The "trick," we're told, "is finding a balance between the barbecue and the Italian aspects."

So far so good, right? Sadly, it doesn't stop there. "Sure," the piece continues, "it's fine to add pork to store-bought sauce and pour it on noodles." Which, of course, it isn't. Oh WAPO, how could you?
