My New Favorite Blog--"Things Younger Than John McCain"

My new favorite blog "Things younger than Republican Presidential candidate (oh, and did I forget to mention war hero?) John McCain"

For example from the May 19, 2008 entry:

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is younger than John McCain.

I put Kraft Macaroni and Cheese right up there with the wheel and the iphone as one of the world’s great inventions. Created by divine inspiration in 1937, it’s the perfect meal when you have a cold or when you’re too lazy to make, you know, real food. The key, however, lies in my own secret technique… which I will share with you here and now:
The Double Drain™.

You see, the directions call for the chef to drain the water after the macaroni has come to a boil… but that’s insane. Between the milk, the butter, and the excess water that didn’t drain, you’ll still be left with a runny mess that will deprive you of the full “cheese” experience. One must do a second, “cleansing” drain just prior to emptying the contents onto ones plate. And one must also use a wooden spoon.

For the less industrious among us, there’s a product called “Kraft Easy Mac” which can be prepared with just water and a microwave in 3 1/2 minutes… but that’s just sad.
Finally, to borrow from a comment that Joe G. wrote about the corndog (which was one of the five most impassioned odes to the corndog I’ve ever read), “Elect a President that was born before the invention of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese? Not on my watch, pal.”

I've had this on my blogroll for a while. I check it daily. It just kills me. Saw a Wilford Brimley diabetes commercial the other day and hoped against hope that Wilford Brimley was younger than John McCain so that I could contribute a suggestion, but alas Mr. Brimley is a couple of years older.
