Elton John's 'Your Song' is an amazing song about how hard it is to write amazing songs.

17 year old Bernie Taupin wrote the lyrics while having breakfast. Once he handed off the lyrics, the song was roughed out in about twenty minutes.

Those two are crazy talented.

I'm pretty sure Sonic is active trying to get people to not go to Sonic with their commercials.

Are you referring to the new hedgehog flavored Blizzards?

Hedgehog flavored chips were a thing in 80s England.

Since when is Blizzard making Sonic games?

Had something called tiramisu which is like a breaded chocolate pudding made with rum. It was so good and now I'm drunk.

Where'd you get it?

My wife makes what might be the Best Tiramisu In Seattle, and anytime someone calls out a place for doing great tiramisu, we've tried it and confirmed her #1 position.

HOW are you people making your tiramisu? It's not supposed to make you drunk, there isn't nearly enough alcohol in it for that!
Also... pudding? Breaded? I can hear the cries of horror of millions of Italians all the way from Paris.

To your first question - that rather depends on HOW MUCH tiramisu you eat.

To your second question, I suspect that's more about Baron not knowing what a ladyfinger is, or not recognizing them as such, which is fair, they get all squadgy and mixed together by the time it's in your mouth. It does get a bit "bready" once it's soaked with all the delicious coffee and booze.

I can vouch for the wife's tiramisu recipe, it's proper legit - it'd have the Milanese swooning in their cafes.

Its supposed to be sponge cake. Although now that I think about it rum soaked bread pudding with cream and powdered chocolate sounds delicious.

I know what ladyfingers are. They are fingers on ladies. ha ha. No never had a ladyfinger. Reminds me of a anamaniacs joke.

They are the most surprising ingredient in tiramisu

Mmmm.... mucilaginous sponge.....

Goddammit! Now I’m hungry for fried okra followed by overly rummed tiramisu.

Went to the grocery store and bought myself a tiramisu cake. It's industrial, doesn't have rum in it, but it was very crap.

My love handles thank you all very much.

I understood the appeal of James Bond more when I realized that it's The Fast and the Furious for boomers.

Dear god... am I a boomer?

Does that mean Bourne is F&F for Gen X?

And where do we fit John Wick into this? Is he for Zoomers, then?

2021 is only 14 days in. *screaming intensifies *

I have been doing remarkably well with Dry(ish) January, all things considered.

I made it exactly six days.

Wait... tiramisu with RUM? Amaretto people!

I use my mom's kick-ass recipe - Ritamisu, guess my mom's name - that adds pieces of crunchy chocolate to the mascarpone mix. It's also better than any restaurant tiramisu I've ever eaten.
