Chatterbox: The Internet Is Talking About Ernest Hemingway's Hamburger Recipe

Posted by on Thu, Feb 13, 2014 at 4:35 PM

Insight into Christian Self-Perception: There will be two Christian-themed movies titled "Persecuted" coming out this year. In case you were wondering, the Christians are supposed to be the persecuted ones.

Sick of Being Number Two: Is Pepsi slowly getting out of the soda business?

There Are No Good Guys in This Story: Here's what happens after you write "I'm fucked in the head alright, I think I'ma SHOOT UP A KINDERGARTEN [sic]...AND WATCH THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT RAIN DOWN...AND EAT THE BEATING HEART OF ONE OF THEM" on Facebook and someone reports you to the cops.

Be Sure to Cook In a Clean, Well-Lighted Place: Here's Ernest Hemingway's hamburger recipe.

The Most Adorable Bookseller in Seattle: Seattle Mystery Bookshop has adopted a new bookstore dog. Even more adorably, that dog's name is Parker.

The Never-Ending Candle: All of a sudden, the internet can't get enough of this (almost) infinite candle concept, although some commenters wonder if this idea would work very well at all.

Yep! That's a Sinkhole, All Right: Here's video of that Corvette museum sinkhole from yesterday.

"The two waiters inside the cafe knew that the old man was a little drunk, and while he was a good client they knew that if he became too drunk he would leave without paying, so they kept watch on him."

Bring me a Nada burger! The old man said.

Cheese? asked the older waiter?

You know what? I'm just fine with that idiot who wrote on facebook that he was going to shoot up a school and murder some kids sitting on his ass in jail for a decade.

Well, I'll give the no-name director* of Persecuted some credit: it looks more competently put together than any other fundie film I've seen previewed here on Slog. Though admittedly that's a bar set low enough to pose a tripping hazard.

*Seriously, he barely registers on Rotten Tomatoes. His only film represented there doesn't have a critical rating, and it's only got 10% on audience approval.

Ernest Hemingway was an overrated, homophobic piece of shit writer.

What the fuck is "India relish"?

Too bad about Pepsi.

I rarely drank (drink) sodas (or their evil twin; energy drinks), but Pepsi is a better tasting cola, than Coke.

"No Coke. Pepsi!"

Christians may not be persecuted in America. It is much worse in other countries though .

That's not a hamburger, that's meat loaf.

Paul your so unfeeling. Auntie Seattleblues was so violently persecuted earlier this week when KY decided to recognize Gay marriages performed in other states that she had a complete melt down.

Her family is still trying to coax her out of the closet she's been curled up and weeping in ever since. Have some compassion dude.

@4: Why so perplexed? It's a nice relish with Indian spices. Better with ham, grilled fish, roasted pork, than sandwiches.

@10 Indeed.

@10: it's called "chutney". There's no such thing as "India Relish."

RE: There Are No Good Guys in This Story

Well, based on the facts in evidence in this story, there is an innocent teenager, Paul.

Being guilty of an acrimonious exchange with a group of fellow gamers online, even one that includes offensively morbid hyperbole indicative of a remarkable lack of judgment, is not a felony. It's just thoughtless and stupid speech, which like it or not does fall within the protections of free speech.

If we arrested and jailed every teenage gamer who engaged in such behavior, the high schools and malls would be largely devoid of teenage boys.

Xbox and Playstation sales would plummet.

It's time for the police and the prosecutor's office to stop behaving like teenagers themselves, dismiss the charges and let this kid go.

The kid needs a good therapist, not a jail cell.

Why the "sic" after Kindergarten? That's how it's spelled.

If one of those warrants a sequel, may I suggest it be titled "Persecuted 2: Electric Boo-Hoo"?

@12: No, there really is a relish. Smaller diced pickles, onions, etc and is spreadable. A chutney is more "clunky."
