The Chicago Cubs, The Greatest Threat to World Peace

The greatest threat to world peace is the Chicago Cubs. They last won a world series in 1908. Since then America has fought two world wars,  and other wars while not as big as these two, still replete with distressing levels of violence.

Since the last Cubs’ last World Series win our boys have fought in: France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia,  Russia, South Korea, North Korea, China, Philippines, Micronesia, Romania, New Guinea, Indonesia, Burma, Haiti, Santo Domingo, Grenada, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, USA (against the Japanese), Japan, Somalia, Vietnam, and Panama.

This doesn’t even count all the countries where our Air Force has fought nor all of our special ops. My apologies to veterans who fought in a country that escapes my feeble memory.

But the unassailable fact remains; America has been doing a heck of lot of fighting since the Chicago Cubs last won the big one. The conclusion is obvious. Because of the Cubs steadfast avoidancel of excellence, violence stalks the globe.  If ever there were a time for a global-prayer day, it is now. Pray for world peace. Pray for a Cubs Series win. It is the only way it will ever happen.

And did you know that the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 is closer to the Cubs’ last world championship than it is to present?

One World, One Movie Proudly Presents “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”

Today’s the day the entire world watches a single movie, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. May we all enjoy it. May the mere act of watching it and perhaps talking about it bringSalmonFish2 about world peace and a shared Nobel Peace Prize for all of us. Or maybe we’ll just enjoy the movie, but that’s not bad either. In honor of this great event I’ll be making salmon with dill. It’ll be my contribution to Yemeni, or Yemenite, cuisine.

And now a few quotes to inspire you to greatness:

“A trout in the pot is better than a salmon in the sea.”salmonFish5
– Irish saying.

“You piss me off, Salmon… You’re too expensive in restaurants.”
– Eddie Izzard

Now enjoy the movie.

Blackened Potato Crisps From Ghana

Ghanian Entree

BLACKENED POTATO CRISPS

INGREDIENTSBlackPotatoCr-

2 brown potatoes
3 clove garlic
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon cayenne
3 tablespoons fresh ground ginger
1 tablespoon salt
3 cups oil

SPECIAL UTENSIL

electric skillet
food processor with thinnest slicing disk

PREPARATION

Wash potatoes. Use food processor to make thinnest possible potato slices. Dice garlic. Put potato slices, garlic, honey, cayenne, ginger,and salt into mixing bowl. Mix ingredients with hands until spices coat potato slices.

Put oil in skillet. There should be enough to cover potato slices. Heat skillet to 375 degrees. Put one potato slice in skillet. Oil is hot enough when the slice starts to dance around. Carefully put potato slices in hot oil. (Getting splattered by hot oil hurts quite a bit. May I suggest using the skillet lid as a shield between yourself and the oil?) To ensure even and crispy cooking, make sure none of the potato slices touch each other. You will most likely need to cook the potato slices in batches.

Fry each batch at 375 degrees for 7 minutes or until the slices become crispy. Remove slices with spoon with holes in it. Put slices in bowl. Remove remaining oil with paper towel. Repeat for each batch.

Promote world peace with this bit of culinary diplomacy.

TIDBITS

1) Nanotechnology is the latest rage in science.

2) Scientists hope to use nanotechnology to solve all sorts of tiny problems using tiny devices that are maybe a nanometer, one-billionth, meter wide.

3) I am going to make my culinary name with nanocuisine. Entrees, such as, coq au vin, would be made as small as a nanometer wide.

4) Nanocuisine would provide great opportunities for fusion cuisine. I could create a fish taco/cheese-egg salad/ salad Niçoise/paella/sauerkraut/ ham and cheese omelette,suaasat/lasagna,kung pao chicken/doro wat dinner with ease.

5) Indeed with nanocuisine most dishes would be mere molecules wide. I could easily make a dish that combined every appetizer, every soup, every salad, every entree, and every dessert.

6) So, I will cook the first truly global fusion dish.

7) The Nobel Cuisine prize cannot be far behind.

8) I just need to find a food processor that makes nanometer-thick slices.

One World, One Movie: “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” (Update)

One World, One Movie has so far failed utterly to get the Yemeni, or Yemenite, government to participate in this event for world peace and cinematic unity. Reasons for this run from not contacting them to … not contacting them. But  you, dear reader, can help help the world on July 12 by watching “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.”

“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.”

– Neil Armstrong

How I Will Win the Nobel Prize

The only goal not achieved from my bucket list, aside from a wine-and-chocolate book signing at the South Pole, is winning the Nobel Peace Prize. How will I achieve this ambition?

Everybody likes good food. My shakshuka, tomato-breakfast soup, is tasty. Shakshuka, is liked by Arabs and Israelis alike.  I will simply invite Morsi and Netanyahu to my humble home for breakfast. The menu will feature hot, delicious skillets of shakshuka. On the side, they can feast on homemade maple doughnuts. Who doesn’t like maple doughnuts? Who could ever again contemplate violence after eating a maple doughnut?

Nobody. The dawn of world peace is at hand.
