News You Can Use
Megan McArdle observes that, “When I tuned into the morning news yesterday, the BBC was covering the Gaza strip. Fox News was teaching people how to make homemade butterscotch pudding.”
I gather that she disapproves of Fox’ choice. But, really, learning about the latest bizarre chapter in Palestine will have precisely zero practical consequence. By contrast, butterscotch pudding is delicious. And homemade butterscotch pudding would almost have to be even better.
Of course, pudding is made from eggs, a/k/a “chicken abortions,” and milk, a/k/a “cow pus,” so said recipe might be less useful to a vegan.
