The following has been put together from various news sources. It could be titled "Only in Africa", but I think the headline should be "There Goes Christmas Dinner".

Two cousins have appeared in the Mahwelereng Magistrate's Court, Limpopo Province, South Africa, for allegedly stealing a cow and an ambulance they used as a getaway vehicle.

Blade Olifant, 26, and Kgothatso Olifant, 27, allegedly stole a cow and loaded it in the back of an ambulance in Mahwelereng. They stole the ambulance from outside a house whilst the paramedics were attending to a patient in the house.

"The two bundled a cow inside the ambulance oblivious of the fact that is was marked and easily identifiable," police spokesman Mulaudzi Hangwani said in a statement.

"Community members contacted the police who quickly set up a roadblock where the duo, with sirens blaring, thought they would not be stopped."

Police found a live cow inside the ambulance as well as bottles of beer.

The two were released on a warning and would appear again on 15 January.

The cow was identified by its owner after it was placed under the care of the local Society For Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals.

"Sometimes the criminal makes it almost too easy for the police. The two were apparently wanting to slaughter the cow for their family Christmas dinner but will now just be having pap (maize porridge)," Mulaudzi said.

I'm in the kitchen doing dishes. my 27 y/o daughter calls from the family room, "Papa, what is the trinity?"

 

I answer, "The Father, The Son..." (thinking now, wait, she knows that - oh) "Onion, celery and green bell pepper."

The really sad thing is that most of those New Yorkers eat out 7 days a week and don't have a clue how to cook that kale anyway. (I am related to at least one 'hipster' in NYC who might well have been in those lines - if she hadn't already called for pizza and Chinese delivery.)

 

Thanks, Kim. Yes, those lineups and quips were funny. Had already seen them on the 'prepper' board I read - they were laughing too.

Watched the mayor's press conference (with the most over the top signer I have seen since Mandela's memorial service) and he was actually asked by a reporter if the bicycle delivery food folk were exempted from the state of emergency travel ban.

Ooh Alex,

 

That's one thing that sends me off into Incendiary Land! Texting or otherwise fiddling around with your phone or other electronic devices at the dinner table after I have put so much effort into making a delicious, nutritious and hot meal for you. SOOO... RUDE.

 

Happy Textgiving indeed!

 

Sadly, I'm sure this happens in many households.

 

Unfortunately, my husband is a fan of playing FreeCell and taking any and all calls during the dinner hour. He's 65, so not a kid or teenager.

 

I'm try to serve a scalding hot dish, and he's hunched over the dining table, absorbed in manipulating his mouse. I put the dish to the side and let him burn himself, or better yet, I've lately taken to letting him get up and serve his own dish from the counter or stovetop. You wouldn't believe the surprised shock in his expression when I sit down and serve myself without serving him first after so many years of his being waited on hand and foot.  :biggrin:

 

There is much humor in what you posted, though, so don't let my frustration detract from it.  :smile:

Not at all. Maybe you could buy that card and send it to him next Thanksgiving (or sooner). I did order several from her. She acknowledged the order and shipped the cards very quickly.

 

Her card "Sisters Vermicelli and Fusilli" reminds me of this cartoon from The New Yorker (20+ years ago!).

I'd never seen that before. Apparently it was a bit of a scandal when that recipe first aired. Sandra Lee's Wikipedia page even has a whole subsection dedicated to the Kwanzaa Cake:

 

Much of the criticism of Lee has coalesced around a recipe for "Kwanzaa Cake" that she demonstrated on a 2003 episode of Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee. The recipe consisted of angel food cake topped with icing, cinnamon, apple pie filling, pumpkin seeds and corn nuts (all store-bought), with seven Kwanzaa candles then inserted into the cake.[16]

 

Food writer Anthony Bourdain, who has been harshly critical of Lee in general, described the video clip of this segment of the show as "eye searing" and "a war crime".[17][18][19] The cake was called "scary" by the Houston Chronicle,[20] and "the most ghastly-sounding dish in Lee's culinary repertoire" by Tulsa World.[21]Salon.com wrote that the video "takes pride of place in the pantheon of hilarious culinary disaster videos".[22]

 

Cookbook author Denise Vivaldo, who claims to have ghostwritten recipes for many celebrity chefs, wrote a humorous post in The Huffington Post in December 2010 stating that she was responsible for the recipe (though she said that the candles were Lee's idea), and apologizing for it, saying that she collaborated with Lee only for the money. She also wrote that Lee "has incredibly bad food taste".[23] A week later, the post was removed, after Lee's lawyer threatened legal action.[24]

 

Lee has said that this recipe is the only one of hers whose criticism she has taken to heart, and that the recipe was partly due to the Food Network dictating the show's content at the time.[24]

 

 

"A war crime." Classic!

The Onion chimes in about eating.

 

 

Shedding new light on the biological underpinnings behind the behavior, scientists at Brown University announced Tuesday that eating appears to serve a number of key functions besides relieving anxiety.
