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.

What is Hotel California, by The Eagles?
Aren't we on the wrong day, or did I miss something. Seems this is the booger flicker thread...
You can tell when an Eatocracy article makes the main CNN page. Explodes with comments, then dies off when replaced with something else on the homepage.
That article is now our most-read piece of all time! We are soclose to this being our biggest traffic day of all time. Fingers crossed.
And also for my non FB user friends: I received an email stating I am a Nigerian Prince and that if I send a $500 security deposit to my employee, Mr. Alice Cooper; I can access my millions. How cool is it Alice Cooper works for me as a bulter!
Well, on the bright side, it couldn't go too much worse than his restaurant chain did...His Denver location was gone faster than a Hollywood marriage...
Doctor? Iiiiiiiiiiiiinteresting. I like my stethoscopes cold and my doctors hot.
Now about that "special muscle" I just pulled ... ~_~
Hey diddle diddle, all you cats in a fiddle! MY BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW, MY BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW, MY BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW! On another topic, we took Thing 1 to the state fair yesterday and had a blast. Although I didn't get my caramel apple, lemon shake-up or caramel corn, I did get my elephant ear, milkshake and pork butterfly sandwich.
Man there sure are a lot of bent out of shape folks on the "Got a minute (or three or four)? Perfect your coffee pour-over" story.
@Jerv- really? I'll go check it out. I'm staying out of it, but reading it should be entertaining.
Well, in that case, I consider it my sworn duty to go over and stir the pot....Stay tuned...
@Truth- cool, I'll anxiously await your post. I answered your other post way at the bottom.
A 49er is a "man" who lasts just under 50 seconds in the sack.
Lucky guy. Can fit a few good ones in on a nooner.
Arnold Horshack has died. RIP.
There is a product that is used by virtually all men. This product has a feature that is only used as intended about 40% of the time.
What is this product feature?
A jock strap?
No, but you are literally in the right neighborhood...
say it's not a condom!??
Negative...not a c0nd0m...
OK, it has to be the remote control!! Used by virtually all men and used wrong all the time (aka channel surfing while wife trying to watch Next Food Network Star!!). :D
Jergens hand lotion?
Negative...not a belt.
And this is a FEATURE or a product, not the product itself...
A strap on...I mean snap on tie.
You have a dildo tie?!?!?!
You have a d i l d o tie?!?!?!
LOL! Gotta be prepared for all occasions.
Have missed you around here and good to see you back. No matter how hard you try, you find yourself back here.
Thank you SirB. Dust has pretty much settled since our number 1 research guy left so some extra time for the internets. Plus I'm getting a wifi laptop so I can stay off the work computer.
Fly front of the undiesquares?
We have a winner. Recent research (and who knows how this is compiled), shows that only 40% of men go through the fly, as opposed to going over the top.
Umm, wouldn't some 'things' get caught in said fly zipper??
That's the idea...Not to mention that it stretches out the garment over time, hence it is easier to just "go over the top"...Literally.
I'm so naive...had no idea there was a "protocol" for a guy with zipper pants to take a pea. Makes me think of a few other "will it be over, under, through, top, or bottom" questions........
Hello everyone! I have Chinese Five Spice Oatmeal cookies with dried cherries for the afternoon.
John flicks a booger and to his embarrassment it stuck to the ceiling....he hopes the cute secretary doesn't walk in and catch him....
John needs to eat a sandwich or 7 as his 28 inch waist doesn't seem to match the rest of his body or head.
You are da BOMB!!! I haven't laughed like that in a while.
Ditto! I was torn between yuck and laughter. Good one JBJ! It was guy-like in its grossness!
*bows* It was the first thing I thought of when I saw it! Sick, I know.
Wish I'd thought of something like that. The expression on the kid's face DOES look like he's going "uh oh!" about someTHING!
Maybe he sharted and is thinking "Ugh, oh!"
I agree on both counts (the waist and the fart)!
Well, well, well. Looks like everyone in class is present today! Welcome to another scorching day of exessive heat here in So. Cal. ugh, ugh, ugh. Wassup?
So last night while I was sleeping I suffered from a pretty impressive charlie horse. It's hard to measure how long it lasted since INTENSE PAIN. Either way, I've been stretching my leg and such throughout the morning and now I'm having intermittent spasms that have me on edge.
Really flipping weird.
aw, sympathies. Wish I had some decent advice. All I can do is give you (((Hugs!)))
Eat more bananas, sounds like you need more potasium.
Sympathies, I used to get these a lot and they are very painful. Potassium helps as Dr. Biddle suggested, just be careful to not take too much if in pill form...
Howdee ho on yet another (sigh) hot and sweaty day out here in these parts. Our monsoon season is in full swing.
Looks like Cartoons R us today!
Good morning all, but I may be lost. I was looking for Coffee Klatch, but it seems I have wandered into Cartoon Network.
And what is with all of this birthday streamers and taffeta? Is this a big week or something?
@ Truth- we were just educating folks on modern day torture methods for parents of toddlers :)...
How are you this morning?
We're celebrating Fidel Castro's birthday.
He turned 86 on the 13th.....

That train of thought derailed for me when Barney hit it big.
ABK, how goes your child's situation and the new job training? Best wishes on both!
@ Truth- I suffered Barney when I was a nanny in my teens. My 3 year old sees a specialist in Atlanta for her reflux next month. My other one who is 2, has learned the delight of screaming the f word. He heard someone at the store say it so now he thinks its a riot. Training is good. The TO is a huge jerk, but if I can make it until I'm shipped off to the academy in December we'll both live. Had a guy try to charge me but instead, face planted when his pants fell off. Fun times! How are you to doing?
I was very pleased a decade or so back when I realized I share a birthday with Queen Elizabeth I
remembering the @ this time :-)
Nice....but you share which B Day? She has two.
Howdy folk-a-roonies! I see it's been a busy morning. How is everyone on this fine Tuesday?
What up WIT. Ready for the Tough Mudder?
Training has been slacking due to a crazy ex girlfriend. I may have to postpone until next year. How did you end up doing on that warrior dash?
And when I say slacking, I mean not moving at the pace I want. I have put on about 7-8 lbs of muscle and lost about an inch on my waist. I need to step it up to get rid of that last 20 lbs of winter padding and add about that much muscle and then I will be good to go! Now that i'm single again, I can hit the gym like 5 days a week!
I finished it, but it was a lot more running and a lot less obstacles than I expected. Still had fun, but would have liked the focus to be more on the obstacles.
Good call on waiting until next year as the TM can be a MF'er if you're not ready for it.
I'm going to do one of the 5K races at some point before the mudder, just to get the feel for it.
@J Dizz- we've said we would pay one of the fellow officers $100 to actually do this to the town drunk... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggos2nvL9nk&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Forgot to add: this being because he has been arrested literally 900 times and says "the birds made me do it"
I did the wrong one...oops..its Stork Startling.
What is with all the creepy puppets? I can handle the Fraggles, unless the dog thing or the trash thing are involved then just no good
I love puppets. NGF even bought me the latest Muppet Movie for Father's day a few months ago. HA!
I had a bad experience with Labyrinth when I was a youngling, and to this day most puppets scare the dickens out of me.
@ J Dizz- The new Muppets movie was great! Off topic, but a British friend of mine frequently uses "Muppet" to describe people and I caught myself doing it today. I wonder why I got such an odd look? Lol
Forgot one of our forbidden words!!
Your comment is awaiting moderation.
Good morning! Thumbs up to NFL, home fries, vanilla peach cookies and new FB friends. Thumbs down to repeti*ive children's shows, nice for the kids, not so much for adults in the area.
@ Mary Shannon- how is that a bad word? Anyway, good morning!
The "bad word" is hidden inside the normal, everyday word. Modbots haven't been programmed to see the difference.
I thought you were an
Jdizzle Doesn't discriminate against body parts.
Don't let Jerv hear you talk like that or he'll be on the next flight to LaCross.
That's an hour South. =D
This is the Wonder Pets thing.
God, I hated that show when Jdizzle Spawn was younger. But anything is better than Dora the Explorer who repeats everything 48 times and looks at you all stupid for several awkwardly silent moments like we're going to talk to her on the TV screen.
@J Dizz- do you watch Robot Chicken? They have a great Dora parody. HRH was obsessed with Dora last year. Thankfully the 2 year old loves anything Star Wars or Star Trek.
Star Trek is awesome. Except for Enterprise (which had to grow on me, and I'm working on it via Netflix) and TOS (sorry, 60's TV doesn't do it for me) I have watched every episode. Between Voyager, DS9, and TNG that amounts to 21 seasons of episodes alone. That is a lot of time immersed in that world, LOL. Toss in the 2 of 5 that I've watched of Enterprise so far and I should get some sort of Medal.
Robot Chicken is funny, but I have a suspicion it is intended for the crowd that have hookas in front of them as they watch.
Aww. Forgot susp ic ion is on the naughty list.
@ J Dizz- don't get me started on TNG, DS9, and Voyager....love them! Seen them all and the 2yo old can name everyone on TNG (he only asked me who they were 900 times). I agree with you on the '60's TV thing. Never really got into Enterprise either and don't have NetFlix, but I can live :)
@ J Dizz- RC is good for short clips. I rarely can watch an entire episode. Oh and big Family Guy fan here too. Own every season with the exception of the one coming out next month. Sometimes I think I'm still a teenager when it comes to my level of maturity on some things..
Family Guy is one we can all sit and watch together as a Family. NGF doesn't really care for it, but the rest of us dig it. American Dad is OK, as well. Master Chef is the show we watch when everyone goes to bed. That and The Daily Show and Colbert Report.
Good morning! Thumbs up to NFL, home fries, vanilla peach cookies and new FB friends. Thumbs down to repetitive children's shows, nice for the kids, not so much for adults in the area.
Good morning! I have some Vanilla Bean Peach Cookies for everyone so please enjoy :-)
recipe is up on the blog for anyone interested. Flight for GenCon leaves in a few hours and I am ready to go!!!!
This can give Wheels on the Bus a run for its money...
@Sir Biddle- this one is the favorite song around here. That and the creepy "Peek-a-Boo" one. I can hear HRH jumping in her bed singing that one almost everyday.
Nothing like jammin to this coming home from daycare pickup. The ladies love it!
Gotta love the creepy robots
@Sir Biddle- or this:
AleeD needs to watch that last one!
what is up with the terrifying puppet/monster thing?!?!
That is Brobee and he is one mad wamajammer. He can skateboard too!
This is Brobee (spelling)! It is a creature toddlers adore and parents hate.
that would have given toddler jaina nightmares...to much like the creatures in Labrinyth which did give me nightmares
Good Morning Waffleheads!
Your sooooo easily entertained--IMHO....Lil' Biddle could have gained 350 yards against the Cowboy's defense last night....and that's with a FULL diaper.
We have Lil Biddle in contract talks with RGIII, with that pair the Redskins are Super Bowl bound for certain!
I've got my eye on this kid.
And I have MY eye on you eying him. Anything else and this turns into a Penn State moment and I'll cut you!
Good Tootsday Morning Kidz from Valdosta GA. Man, these are some of the best home fries and biscuits I've had in a long time. The sausage and eggs ain't bad either. Tomorrow is a BIG Day around here for some reason but for the Life of me I can't remember WHY? Even WD can't remember--
You gotta go a long way to beat Waffle House hash browns all the way. But nobody beat Pops home fries. What's up?
Scattered, smothered and covered...I must agree Lil' Buddy. I've still got 2 hours left on my "Break " before hitting the concrete, so WD and I are walking off breakfast. How was the weekend?
Great weekend here. I've been watching the show "Bones." I'm totally hooked. Sounds like your new employer has you going all over the place. Well, morning free time is up. You and everyone have a great day!!
Why did you have to mention home fries? Lol, now I'm hungry again.....
Good morning! How is everyone? Sorry for no responses yesterday, my phone decided I didn't need to use CNN. Where do 3 year olds get their energy from and how can I sell it :)? Late night and now early morning. And she's decided that all food with the exception of cereal bars, is "gross". Oh, got rid of my troll. Baited it enough ( I know I shouldn't, but it was picking on kids) to make it go away. So all in all good! *waves to my new FB friends too :)*
What can we chat about especially now the Olympics is over. There's just no meaning to life anymore
NFL, baby, NFL!
@ Jerv- the time of year the hubby and I bicker over teams (I like the 49ers, he loves the Panthers). A house divided.
What's a 49er?
I haven't had coffee and I'm being forced to sit through the horror that is "Yo Gabba Gabba" thanks to HRH the 3 year old, so I'm not really awake yet. I like football but I don't shout at the tv and break inanimate objects in anger like the hubby.
HA!!! We have a Yo Gabba Gabba household too. Its a love-hate relationship. I either think the content is cool or I've heard it so much its nails on a chalkboard.
@ Sir Biddle- as much as this show annoys me, its "Wonder Pets" that is like nails on a chalkboard for me.
A team than can score more than 3 points with 26+ minutes of possession time.
