Cooking Secrets of the CIA

That used to be the title of a cooking show. I don't think it's on anymore. But I remember when I first saw a commercial for it... I was REALLY excited. I mean think about it... how AMAZING does that sound? At first I thought it didn't make much sense to have a cooking show about the CIA... but then I realised that it actually makes perfect sense! Think about it... the CIA is full of INSANE secrets! Like... stuff that if they told you would make your head explode! So just imagine how many wicked recipes those guys must have!

But then the show was ruined for me. When I watched it, I discovered the horrible truth about this show. To my dismay, they were not sharing the cooking secrets of THE CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), but rather the CIA. (Culinary Institute of America). I was very upset, and as a result was soured on the genre of cooking shows for quite some time. The lesson we can all learn from this kids? DO YOUR RESEARCH. That's right. I did not do my research and thus committed myself to watching a television show that turned out to be a complete fraud.

It still stings, after all these years.

Honestly, I don't even know what made me think about that. What can I say, it's a slow day around here today. I've got time to contemplate.

On a completely unrelated note, I finally figured out the name of this song that is in a TV commercial that I see all the time. It pissed me off, cause I knew the song, I just couldn't place it. Turns out, it is the pre-chorus bit of Der Kommissar! I totally should've known that! Damnit! I love that song. But seriously, who uses that song in a commercial and DOESN'T use the chorus?? That's the only way people are gonna know it!


Back to business. (Or "bid-nezzzz" as my business teacher David Meers used to say. I liked it when he said that. It was silly.)

Peace out.
