John Atkinson just emailed this link asking, "Have you blogged this?" Well, no—although I do believe I emailed it to him back in ought-three. Disirregardless, it's a good'un.

I got wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist
You know I'd have all the things these lucky charms could bring
If you'd give me just one sweet kiss, rowr, rowr, rowr
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do.

Yeah, yeah, we all know that you grill burgers'n'brats on the Fourth, but that only takes a few minutes and then yo have all those coals going great. What to do with that lovely fire? Here's a non-intuitive dish that will excite absolutely no one—until they taste it! Then you won't have made enough.

Chet Raymo has a nice essay rebutting Larry Dossey's screed about why science doesn't accept the wisdom of alternative medicine gurus such as Depak Chopra et al.

Yesterday was the anniversary of Frank Zappa's death in 1993. The good news is that the Zappa estate is releasing tapes of The Grand Wazoo tour and that Zappa Radio is back online. Wowie zowie.
