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 weekly 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.

Oooohhhh Myyyyyy! Damn, what a game! I really thought it was over, till the interception. GAME OVER!!!! Look out Denver! See you in New York!
Thanks for the phantom calls and non calls, Refs! Thanks for throwing a game-ending pick to a double covered Crabs to end the game, Kap! One of three turnovers, Kap! Hawks hung 20 on you in the second, Defense! I was thinking when the last drive started...."this is how legends are born, Kap...."
Looked like he was going to do it, then ZAP. Season over. Could have gone either way. Kap gets it a little higher, Crabs catches it, Niners win. Sherm got that by his finger tips.
No hard feelings, but go Broncos.........that's how much I like the 'Hawks, RC. That's how much. =)
Heh,heh! How do you really feel? You're right though-could have gone either way. Looks like those tip drills payed off:)
Damn, the boys in orange are lookin' good today. Never seen Brady look so dejected and beaten on the sideline before.
Only thing better than the game was commenting with #bestsisterever
Awww. Back atcha. Never had my own hashtag :-)
Here is the Klatsch’s Toxic Topics List so far:
Food a$$istance programs
Minimum wage for fast food workers
T@inted prison food
Halve uh grate weak end!!
Ok folks, I am out for a few...Appointment with MFL, then lunch.
Bye! Make sure she cuts all of them this time!
Monkey Football League?
MFL = My favorite lesbian...My hairstylist. Been going to her for eleven years now.
Oh damn! Too funny. Still laughing!
She's been doing me (so to speak) for eleven years now...ironic that one of my longer relationships is with one who plays for the other side...
Sad food related story here...
Yeah, having that tied to the farm bill is BS.
Good Friday morning Klatschers!! Gotz an easy day today and then its the weekend. This town is lit up for footyball Sunday. The 12th man is everywhere-GO HAWKS! I like everyone's picks (except for Jdizz).
Broncos and Pats? Just not sure there.
Good morning all, and Happy Friday. Went to the Avalanche game last night and watched the OT win. Sunday looks even more promising though, and half of my tenants are in the blue and orange. Should be a good Sunday!
DEN 35, NE 24
SEA 33, SF 28
What is on everyone's agenda for the weekend?
We have to win up there eventually. Sunday is as good a day as any. =)
Nah-save it for next year:)
Would this really be a good problem to have....http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/us/2014/01/10/hln-vo-three-hour-orgasm-emergency-room.hln.html
W T F!?
I didn't have the cojones to, um, bring that up, at work without asking the question: lemme know if it's SFW.
It's not graphic or porn. Some woman on a reality show had a three hour or gasm.
Honestly its safe to view at work. Its from CNN. The mothership.

I remember seeing him sing for the first time when he was starring on Ally McBeal, and was surprised then.
Going to the Chocolate Festival @ MOSI tomorrow. Gonna be some good eats there!!
Anybody else got plans for the weekend – besides football of course.
Saturday, shopping and errands. Sunday, massage followed by football.
Have fun at the chocolate festival!
Good Morning Kidz and TGIF……I hope you All have a fantastic weekend. Broncos & Seahawks on Sunday,and don't forget-Monday is National Water Melon Day. Be Safe All.
Crafty. I see what you did there.
I agree with your pred**tions, RH.
Russell Johnson, who played The Professor on the 1960's series "Gilligan's Island" has passed from natural causes.
In a related story, 3/5ths of men everywhere still prefer MaryAnn...
You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy...
It was recently in the news that the 7 characters from Gilligan's Island were modeled after the 7 deadly s!ns:
Skipper = Anger
Gilligan = Sloth
Mr. Howell = Greed
Ginger = Lust
Mrs Howell = Gluttony
Mary Ann = Envy
I actually lusted after Mary Ann more but Ginger was a close second.
I heard yesterday that Mary Ann was the 1st to wear short shorts on TV. RIP Professor, still wonder why you couldn't fix that boat. Lol!
Happy Friday everyone!
Forgot about the Prof = Pride
practically 3 fifths of men are attracted to Gilligan.
Good morning all, and Happy Thursday...Going to the Avalanche game tonight, which is always fun. Anyone else have plans for their day?
Just doing some slow cooking and hammering out those things in the inbox.
......I may have had the munchies.
Dang! That should have been a reply.....
RC's comment earlier got me to whip out a smoked turkey leg tonight I've been hoarding in my fridge for a bit. The last time I had one from the same store I ate cold.........I may have had the munchies. Long story short, I think I'd prefer it hot this time. I googled "best way to reheat smoked turkey" and got a myriad of results. Seems I'll be taking a little from each opinion and forge my own path, cause that's how I roll.
I demand a line of smoked-meat-related articles. You're welcome.
RC and AleeD. Must spread cred.
Saw it a few days ago on Niners message boards. Hilarious
oh look, I can post again
Holy string-of-expletives! I like the woman who put the blanket back on little Beelzebub. :)
That is hilarious! I love a good practical joke.
Would you have the stones to try this kind of dinning? http://www.wtop.com/1228/3537423/High-class-dining-Eating-dinner-in-the-sky-
I thought one of you had the corkscr@w...
Wonder how they handle bathroom breaks.
Look out below.
That's what she said.
No leaving the table before anyone else. For any reason...........
Good morning all...How is everyone doing today?
Gettin' lots of inches, apparently. ~_~
Got about 7 inches of SNOW yesterday, then it's -3 this morning. Is it spring yet?
Well .... after getting a hard seven inches, it DOES tend to shrink things a bit. Give it time. Give it time.
I figured you'd respond. Why I capitalized SNOW. lol
Someone said "We're supposed to get 7" today."
I gave the ol' "That's what she said."
Yeah. I don't see words like that. Working in engineering, I tend to focus on the numbers (yep ... that's my story and I'm sticking to it). At least we deal with inches here. In my last job, we measured in millimeters. Very hard to get excited about 10 ... oh ... mm. Big letdown. ~_~
Good Wednesday morning, all. Rain finally stopped here, back to chilly weather but hopefully no storms in the next couple of days.
Nothing much new here, things have been blissfully quiet now that Dad's settling in.
A friend of mine recently acquired a smoker. Has Eatocracy ever posted articles on the subject? When I use CNN's search box, all I get is a list of the mary jane or terbacky varieties. Would you post a list of links if you they exist? Thank you.
At first I thought you were talking about a new BF or something. I be like, wut this have 2 du wit foodz?
Nothing better than smoked meat, especially homemade since you can make any recipe you like.
I got a smoker for Christmas. I can't wait for some decent weather to try it out. Anyone gotz suggestions on what to try first?
Salmon, of course. =)
Yeah, I guess that's the obvious choice. Not a huge fan though. I think I'll try some ribs first. Apparently it has to be seasoned before use, so that's first on the list.
My friend marinated sirloin, sliced it up and smoked it into some of the best jerky ever.
Now THAT sounds yummy! Doesn't sound too difficult either.
I wonder if it might be better to slice it first, then marinate?
At the risk of beating a dead camel, that's what my friend said afterwards. It was still very tasty jerky.
That does sound good. My local Asian store sells different cuts of steak sliced jerky thin;. I prefer the lean cuts. I use that to make jerky using marinades and sometimes just good'ol S&P. During hunting season my dad would put a rack on a cookie sheet, put the sliced beef on that and into an oven set at as low as it can go over night and we'd have jerky in time for the hunt.
A trick to cutting raw steak thin – put it in the freezer until it becomes firm, but not frozen.
I heard that Jdizz likes smoked trouser trout--has to do with his Alaskan heritage .
Trout sucks. Only good on a camp fire. Too sweet. All that fresh water. I want battle tested ocean fish
Beer can chicken is a good place to start. It's hard to screw that one up and its tolerant enough to take just about anybody's learning curve.
Smoked pork tenderloin is another good one. Take your time, do it right – yowza!
Study up on smoking a good chunk of pork and make yourself some BBQ!
Yup. Beer can chicken is definitely on the "To Do" list. Great tip on slicing raw steak thin-thanks!
WAKE UP YOU SLACKERS---It's HUMPDAY !!!!
*yawn* Mornin' Bro. Wassup?
Hey, would you pass me that camel?
'Sup 'Sista--I don't smoke Camels. On my way to Big D-WhoopEeeeeee!!!
I'm not gonna smoke him – gonna ride him 'cuz it's ...
Give Big Blue a couple of piston strokes for me.
Woo hoo, 7 conference calls today, I think this will be a two phone day (the first one's battery runs down so you move to the second). Rainy day here, mid 40's. Anything new?
Good grief. How do you stay awake? I nod off during one 30min. conference call.....
Watt's Gnu? I hope your conference calls aren't skyped so you can dress comfortably and make goofy faces when appropriate. Gotta have SOME fun.
Nope, no skyping here. When I get up in the morning, I put on sweats for dog walking and stay dressed that way until I get an opportunity to take my shower and get dressed. As for the goofy faces, those definitely happen as well as other miscellaneous gestures and under the breath/hopefully on mute random utterances.
Pretty sad. Love me some Courvoisier.
Just had lunch with a buddy of mine who is a major stoner, and he wanted to hit the dispensary downtown. REALLY odd, but were in and out in 45 seconds. Took him longer to order lunch. Cash only since dispensaries cannot yet legally bank.
Though I got some good laughs on the way in, when the odor came through the door, and I said "Whoa, someone needs to clean the cat box!"...
Happy TootsDay! Can they smoke it in those places or was it just the smell of the "grain" in general? Clean the cat box...lol!
Topics that bring everyone out of the woodwork
(Subti tled Klatsch's Toxic Topics List)
Tainted prison food
Sniffing wine corks
Well, let's hit this one by one...
BBQ – Meh, nobody outside of Oklahoma knows anything about BBQ. Nobody.
Eating Horse – If it is on sale, who cares.
Tainted food – You may think it is spoiled, but it taint!
Tainted food to prisoners – If it is done cost effectively, who cares?
Veganism – Every vegan I know is completely stupid.
And everyone knows that you have to sniff the cork when properly ordering wine.
Ok, now let's let the fun begin!
I gotz Sal Mo Niller from my church's pot luck dinner.
Minimum wage for fast food workers
The God diet. (over 50 comments on that one)
@JDizzle, "the nightstand", I cracked up when I read that!
How could we miss "anything to do with PETA"? It's one of my favorite breads.
Giggity. Moose's Tooth is world famous.
Tired doing homemade pizzas with Lil Biddle last night and the kitchen looked like Studio 54 by the time we ate with flour everywhere.
Good morning all...Had to fight my way to the office through all of the dancing in the streets of Denver. Now maybe we can hear about something other than legal MJ...
Good morning! I have to agree with RH's picks for the Super Bowl contenders.
Anything other than footyball happen this weekend?
A couple of pretty good games yesterday,and the majority of Pickers are 3-1 so far. I will make this prediction, either the NFC or the AFC will win the Super Bowl this year. You heard it here First. My picks for the Divisional Championships are……Seattle in a tight one over the 40 Whinners and Denver over that other East Coast team. Enjoy your Monday All.
Still say it will come down to the Sea Chickens vs the Horsemeat. Still on the fence as to the champ.
Afc or NFC? Bold statement! I should bet on both just in case!
Oh, ye of little faith. Niners have been picked against by most the last few weeks, yet here they are! This is going to be an epic Sunday! Yeehaw!
Niners and Broncos Superbowl.
Boy, San Diego sure got slapped around yesterday. And yeah, I agree with RH's picks. HOW does he do it?
