Finally I have a mnemonic to pronounce the kid’s name properly. Hanhan, by glenoneill at The Yetee …but now that I think about it, shouldn’t it be one of those ‘nasty’-smelling Hoth bipeds instead of a roguish smuggler? Or, better yet, a nasty-smelling Hothian biped smuggler? Hantan! and, my favorite this week, this month, and […]

of sorts. Or, a roll-stair coaster, perhaps? “The walkable, large outdoor sculpture Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain is currently in construction on the Heinrich Hildebrand Höhe in Duisburg Wanheim (D).

Today’s piefecta: Pumpkin Cherry Mincemeats In honor of the holiday, the Pie Master graced us with an abundance of irrational ratios.

The pork mongers at J&D’s– those fine folks that brought us Bacon salt, Baconnaise, and Baconpop[corn]– are now branching out into the prestigious field of lubricants. Bacon Lube.

Today’s pie: eye-talian The Pie Master was otherwise engaged, so Spawn of Pie Master stepped up and worked her own personal brand of magic.
