I've cut the dickens out of my finger

I'm too tired to think of any wise-ass comments about today's news - and I guess I'm using the term "news" very loosely - that Julia Child was part of an OSS spy ring during World War II. In fact I'm so tired that I think maybe I just dreamed reading about it. But why would I dream about a long-deceased chef being a part of the precursor to the CIA? This is where my thought process really starts falling apart.

So, yes, I'm tired, but I'm not so tired that I've forgotten my favorite Julia Child pop culture reference: the classic - having just watched it again, maybe "old" is a better descriptor - Saturday Night Live skit with Dan Aykroyd playing Chef Julia. C'mon, you're bored, just go check it out. (Apologies for the 30-second Degree commercial that NBCmorons make you watch first.) To go straight to the passage that gave us today's headline, skip ahead to about 1:39. You're welcome.

Just don't serve a side dish with red sauce and you'll be OK.
