So stupid it's awesome. (Or maybe vice versa.)

  • City of Ate keeps the Mother's Day articles rollin' on in with a list of five bizarre food commercials starring moms. Our favorite, the high fructose corn syrup ad below. Because if you can't clearly articulate why something totally unnatural is bad for you, it must be A-okay.

  • Fat City kicks things off with the puzzling news of a new White Castle-scented candle. You know it's a questionable product when the profits are going to charity, and you'd rather just donate money directly.

Is that grease and regret I smell?

'Top Chef Masters' Season 2, Episode 4: Thanks for the Spoiler, Bravo

The last of the preliminary rounds wrapped up last night, with five chefs vying to advance to the semifinals. Competing this time around were Maria Hines (the organic chef), Debbie Gold from St. Louis, Rick Tramonto (a previous Top Chef judge who owned Spike for using frozen scallops), Jody Adams (the one who makes awkward but amusing sex/food analogies), and Susur Lee (the vaguely terrifying chef who was voted one of the best of the millennium).

A gust of wind blows the weightless Kelly Choi into the Top Chef kitchen, and she explains to the contestants that their quickfire challenge is to create a fancy fruit platter that's both delicious and photogenic. She then adds that this is a high stakes quickfire, but instead of getting a $10,000 chip from the M Resort and Casino, this time around the winner will get a fast-track pass to the semifinals.
