I have some things to review but they each don't need their own post so I decided to review them all in one post. I call it Speed Reviewing (sort of like speed dating without the awkwardness).
McDonalds McRib - I ate this a few months ago when it was all the rage. All the cool kids were doing it so I had to jump on the bandwagon (I decided that's what I'm naming my band if the name isn't taken already). I was very disappointed. It did not taste magical at all. There were no fireworks, leprechauns or unicorns around when I took my first bite. There was barely any sauce (and I loves me some bbq sauce). For some reason there were pickles on it. Spongebob must have fallen asleep at the grill and though it was a hamburger. It tasted okay but for what I was expecting it did not satisfy. As a side note the french fries tasted old and stale.
Gentleman Jack (Jack Daniels rare whiskey) - I asked for this for Christmas from Nicole and like the obedient fiance she is, she got it for me (quite down you women's rights activists, I was only joking about the obedient part). I have always been a fan of Jack and his whiskey. Jack and coke is a combo I can always count on when I need a little liquor in my system. It came with this cool coffin-like carrying case (for the drunk on-the-go). I decided to try it straight up because I assumed that is what it is meant for. After it burned a hole in my esophagus I decided that I'm too much of a pussy to drink it straight up. I have tried it mixed with Coke, diet Coke and cherry Dr Pepper. Surprisingly the diet Coke tasted the best and was the smoothest. I didn't put a lot of Jack in it to overpower it. The Dr Pepper was the worst mix because it didn't mix. When I drank it I first tasted the soda then the Jack. You suck Dr Pepper and I bet you're not even a real doctor.
Blue Point Blueberry Ale - I already know what you are thinking - Blueberry beer? That's gay! That is a screwed up thing to think, shame on you all. I found this brew in Virginia Beach when Nicole and I went on vacation over the summer. I meant to write about it in my vacay posts but I never finished those so I bring it to you now. We went to a new tavern in town and they had a lot of micro brews on tap so I said what the hey. I normally don't drink beer but something inside of me yearned for it. Once I brought the mug to my face the aroma of juicy, fresh blueberries tickled my nose hairs. I was hooked from the first sip. It was delicious. It wasn't too heavy and went down nice and smooth unlike other beers I have had. After I gulped this down I made a mistake. I ordered a sampler of five other beers in shot glasses. None of them compared to the taste of the Blue Point. After the sampler I didn't want another beer. First chance I got when I got home I went in search of the Blueberry Ale. I found it at a semi-local beer distributor. I liked it the second time around but it hasn't tasted as good as the first one I had. I came to find out on the way to a friend's house that it is sold at A&P Supermarkets. Whoopee!! I thought it was an unknown micro brew. If you like blueberries then I highly recommend this ale. The aroma is stronger than the taste.
'Just the Cheese' Blog - Hilarious, awesome and buttery. That Powdered Toast Man can sure deliver some laughs. Remember that time he said 'penis'? Classic.
Okay maybe these reviews weren't as speedy as I thought they would be. Sue me. (actually please don't, i have no money nor assets, unless you count my Original Lincoln Logs)
Random question: Do you think a burger should automatically come with cheese?
