The Idiot was a bit groggy this morning but was muddling through the day when the following headline created great confusion.
Rice Praises Creation of Iraqi Cabinet
At last," I thought, "happy news from the pantry!" Normally, the headlines from my kitchen are much less positive:
"Paprika Cites Years of Neglect"
"Study finds Sugar Containment Lacking"
"Dog Blamed in Cracker Mishap"
"Organized Crime Taskforce Investigates Barilla Dominance of Pasta Shelf"
"Strange Smell In Corner"
"Authorities Hunt for Cereal Killer" (my personal favorite)
"Oil, Vinegar Part Ways"
So I was the happy idiot, pleased that all was going well with life in the pantry when this headline popped up on Yahoo:
Rice Points Finger at Syria on Iraq Violence
Why can't we all just get along, and who knew rice had fingers?
