Is this real barbecue where one cooks with indirect heat and smoke? Or is this the backyard party where people grill burgers and hotdogs?

Prince George: How bad does one have to spell because to get it to spell-check and barbeque.


How bad does one have to spell as to get it to spell-check as and?.

When grilling a suspect you think might have juicy information, it may be necessary to hit him on the back, ribs, or face. Smoking these details out may even require you to flay him. In the old days they'd use the rack, or tie someone to the stake. I don't see why people get so burned about torture. Spit your legalese at me if you must, although I find it rather dry. Rub the tears from your eyes and quit crying about it.

Cewley: helped to turn the US into just another torturing regime.


Only if your memory is short enough.
This pud is just the fall guy for some war crimes.

USA is and always has been The BMF on the block.
Just the lies change to protect the sociopaths whose names shall not be spoken.

Hi. My name is Magorn, if you've seen a misspelling in a headline in the past ten years or so, there's a better than even chance it was mine.   Finally getting a browser with spell check has not improved this situation as it also now has auto-correct and I'm still as lysdexic as ever

BunkoSquad: To BBQ, or not to BBQ, that is the question-
Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Waterboarding and Tortures of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take a Grill against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing feed them? To feed, to hunger -
No more; and by a meal, to say we end
The Stomach-ache, and the thousand Natural sauces and spices
That Delicious Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To feed, to eat,
To eat, perchance to Dream; Aye, there's the dry rub,
For in that post-Meal nap, what dreams may come,
When we have unbuckled off this mortal belt,
Must give us pause.


Winner winner

Who cares? The real question is, which is the best style of barbecue? Texas? Carolina? Memphis? Kansas City?

Archimedes' Principal: As a huge fan of barbecue, I support subby's subliminal mistake.

/ What, nobody proofreads anymore?
// Ribs, wet or dry. Which is better?


Lamb ribs, cooked in the oven at low temps for a while, then crispified with salt and spices over a charcoal fire. People have fought  over my dads ribs.

Yes, this one little lawyer could have stopped water-boarding torture.
Now, I'm not defending a CIA lawyer. We all know what that august, democracy-spreading organization has been up to the last several decades, and there is no question the guy's a low-life. But, thinking in the context of an organization that is directly responsible for far more deaths than any terrorist on the planet but tells itself it is protecting democracy, I can't blame the guy for trying to cover his own ass.

It's beautiful headlines and threads like this that make the featured partners, paid links, and comments from whiny college types that have never held a job all worthwhile.
