Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk - whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

Consider the daily Coffee klatsch post as your VIP lounge - the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

Soooo...how'd your weekend go? Cook up anything delicious? And JDizzle – if you read this, seriously - a friend of ours who doesn't even work on Eatocracy actually brought you up at a party last night. You're famous, hon! Come back well and happy.

    A Trucker Flasher? How does that work?

    December 14, 2010 at 4:21 pm | Reply
    • Queen of Everything

      Trucker flashing is the act of flashing a trucker. It is a sport I was once involved in when I was a nubile young college student. The season lasted through spring break week and only began once you left your home state. The object of the game was to flash more truckers than the other girls riding with you did.

        Ok, there goes my train of thought for the day.
        Reminds me though...years ago, a friend of mine had seasson tickets to Mile High Stadium. There was a lady in the adjacent section who would flash every time Denver scored (and keep in mind this was during the Elway-fueled super bowl runs...Ahhh, good times there!
