AKA The Stupak
I already know. I’m going to hell. So quit with the “I never!” already. I get it. Totally understand that this is crossing the line of good taste. But what’s a life without choices? I made the choice to create a ridiculous cocktail that seemed funny at the time. There were some laughs, some gasps, and some, “You’re an ass!” But you know what? One thing everyone agreed on, it was goddamn delicious! APRIL FOOLS, suckas!!!

Hard to the Soft-Core!
A naysayer would say all porn is smut. They wouldn’t distinguish between hardcore and soft-core porn. The nuances are missed. Soft and hardcore each have their time and place and both share a clear business plan. How many big corporations can so clearly define their prime directive? I am all for a little soft-core with its sweet, half-baked romances that lead to tedious T&A on satin sheets without revealing anything more than the viewer’s frustration. And hardcore certainly has inspired some adventures unmentionable anywhere but a confession booth (sorry, Father O’Hanrahan). But choosing between soft-core and hardcore eggs, I prefer soft. The ooey gooey soft-boiled yolk reminds me of simpler times when all I needed was Skinemax to get me through desperate times in high school. But being an adult does have some perks. I can choose between soft and sticky or the hard and icky. Breakfast…it’s all about choices.

Drinking Buddy: A NOT-SO-TEENY WEENY BELLINI or a SMOOTHEE OPERATOR
Ingredients (serves 2):
1. Salt to taste
2. Pepper to taste
3. ½ an avocado sliced thinly
4. 2 eggs
5. 2 slices of bread
6. Butter for two pieces of toast
Bring a pot of water to a roaring boil. Add the two eggs and boil for 5 minutes, then place them in a bowl of cold water to cool, before placing an egg in a shot glass (or other small container).
Toast the two slices of bread, spread butter on them, and then quarter the toast. Crown each quarter with a slice of avocado and set them on a plate surrounding each egg as if it were a god.
Use the side of a spoon to whack around the edges of each egg, and then remove the shell top. Add a pinch of salt and your desired amount of pepper on each egg and serve immediately.
