The gradual shift in New York’s economic fortunes and mores reminds me of the boiling frog theory. If you take a frog and throw it in a pot of boiling water, the frog will do everything in its power to escape. But if you place a frog in room-temperature water and slowly raise the heat, it will boil to death without realizing it’s dying.

I’m hoping someone slips me some drugs while I’m here in Florida. Preferably from the comfort of my king sized bed.

My roommate and I used to sing this when we were stoned and had nothing desirable to eat in the house. Then we’d venture out to the corner store and giggle at nothing and everything.

Look at what the fuck we got in the mail this morning. Less than a month away until the dopest cookbook ever drops.
Preorder your copy now or get left behind this fall.
Congrats to Thug Kitchen, that’s so cool! I may just have to get a copy.
HEADLINE: ANNOYING PALEFACEBAGOFPISS TAKES A PUBLIC SHIT ON VIETNAMESE CULTURE BY USING ANGEL HAIR PASTA IN HER “PHOE” WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY MOCKING “ASIAN” ACCENTS
allow me to share some precious gems from her recipe:
- literally the only ingredients of the soup part are: 1. chicken broth 2. ginger and 3. garlic. THAT’S IT. like. she didn’t even use ANY spices??
- - -??? how do you call this pho if you don’t use pho spices. they are essential. ESSENTIAL. that is what makes it taste and smell like pho. it is 100% necessary, 100% non-negotiable
- "1/2 pound angel hair pasta" i’m too tired for this shit
- basil leaves? you’ve gotta specify thai basil (or la hue) or your white audience is gonna go home and make fucking italian ass basily angel hair pasta spaghetti drowned in chicken broth
- lime zest.. chill rachael
- braised.pork.shoulder. in pho. shredded pork. in pho.
DON’T watch the video if you don’t want to end up throwing your computer in the trash. a selective summary:
- repeatedly butchers the pronunciation of pho, calls it “phoe” at least 6 times, shamelessly
- when she explains what the hot sauce is she puts on a mocking asian accent and says “SRIRACHAAA” WITH THAT BUCKTEETH FUCKING CHINAMAN THING PPL DO
- "Trust me, if you’ve never tried it, it’s so easy to make a big beautiful bowl of PHOE. And it’d be so much fun for your kids or your friends. You can entertain with it. I like to put chopsticks in it and serve it with a slurpy soup spoon along side."
- —no. it shouldn’t be easy unless you’ve been making it for a long time. it should NOT be easy if you’re someone that CANT EVEN PRONOUNCE THE NAME OF THE THING YOU’RE MAKING ON NATIONAL TELEVISION.
- —even for my MOM, MY VIETNAMESE MOTHER BORN AND RAISED IN VIETNAM, it’s still a whole lot of work!!! i have been studying and practicing making it for years now and it still takes me DAYS to make. D A Y S
- —“I like to put chopsticks in it” oh do you? that’s just your preference? weird coincidence. huh
- —slurpy spoon
- —“You can entertain with it” “it’d be so much fun for your kids or your friends.” LISTEN WHITEY. YOU DON’T JUST GO AROUND BRINGING HOME PARTS OF OTHER PPL’S CULTURES TO ENTERTAIN YOUR BRAT CHILDREN AND UGLYPALE FRIENDS WITH. OOOOO THE ORIENT. HOW FASCINATING. LOOK AT THIS WEIRD SHIT THOSE CHINKS EAT HAHAHA WOW SO WEIRD SO ORIENTAL
(thanks to @sweetheartpleasestay for tipping us off on this)
I agree that her treatment is culturally insensitive and the Sriracha part was terrible, but this commentary is incredibly mean-spirited and like, don’t expect English speakers to pronounce the names of dishes the way they are in their country of origin because that doesn’t happen. I know how “phở” is supposed to be said in Vietnamese but I still just say “pho” (like “faux) when talking about it.
I’m not so sure about that, a lot of people pronounce French and Italian dishes/terms just fine. I’ve mostly given up on correcting people but pho is a staple in Vietnamese cuisine and will probably be the first experience people will have with it. The fact that this lady is on TV pretty much ruining the entire dish is extremely disheartening.
No but people would say “spaghetti” with English intonations. People don’t usually roll the R’s in burrito or do French R’s when asking for a croissant (which is never pronounced like it is in French, anyway). And if you did, you would sound like a try-hard. Like obviously Rachel Ray’s poor excuse for pho is ridiculous and she does dumb shit. I’m just saying don’t shit on people for saying “pho”. I actually went to eat pho this afternoon after reading this and the store owner, who I presume was Vietnamese himself, said “faux” (probably cause he didn’t wanna confuse me, a poor white man).
This intrigued me so I watched the video. Apart from using a very shitty and twaty old racist accent (which should be the focus of the anger and rightfully so), her big sin was making a shitty bowl of soup, most likely because I think she’s run out of ideas of new things to make for her bored housewife audience.
So if the above person is right I should only have my honky friends over for burgers and hot dogs and that person, presumably Vietnamese, should never ever eat pasta or burritos. Maybe because I have a French last name I can sneak in some beef bourguignon or a crepe now and again.
I for one love all Asian cuisine (and all foods of the world really) and will continue cooking them until I don’t want to anymore. And I have tried making pho at home a few times before and it’s true, it is hard to get the balance of the broth right, I am still trying to get it right. I suppose she could have at least tossed a few star anise pods into the broth while it simmered.
My point is, be mad about her racism not her failed international culinary experiments.
My last fashion post because frankly I’m sick of looking at it all. Anyway, my very first project in fashion school was a “dress” I made of soda can tabs, mostly Hawaiian Punch because I loved the taste of it and the colors were what I wanted for the connectors to be. I got so many cuts on my fingers from winding strips of aluminum cans around the tabs creating a “fabric”. The end result was something of a flapper look over a black bodysuit. If I can find the picture, I will post it.
Yeah, there was a Hawaiian Punch feathered hat, too!
Shown in a striking red-and-blue combo, this DKNY clutch was made by Brazilian and Kenyan artisans from recycled soda can tabs. For More
Way to go Michelle Visage. I didn’t like her at first but she’s a good squirrel friend
Backrolls?!? Backrolls are in.
