The Spotted Cheetah — the for-real Cheetos restaurant.

"The menu — which includes Cheetos meatballs, Cheetos crusted fried pickles, and Flamin’ Hot and White Cheddar Mac n’ Cheetos — was created by celebrity chef Anne Burrell. Each of the eleven items range in price, from $8 to $22."

White Cheddar Cheetos are racist.

Each of the 11 items range in price? So the meatballs can be anywhere from $8 to $22? What could possess you to write it that way?

Yeah, but what about Santitas White Corn Tortilla Chips ?

They are White Hispanic. If they shoot a black kid while he is beating them on the ground they are white. Otherwise they are Hispanic.

This means every one of the 11 menu items comes in at least an $8 and a $22 size, possibly with other sizes between those prices for some (or all) items.

This seems unlikely. How did this get through editing?

The Wire's last season has a plotline involving the Baltimore Sun. In it half the discussions are various longtimers ponficicating on fine distinctions between meanings. So I guess David Simon got that wrong. If I find out cops don't drink and sleep around either I'm going to be pissed.

All the old-time editors who would argue about "compared to" vs. "compared with" got laid off in 2006. They're in the dole queue with the people who would have fact-checked Sabrina Rubin Erdely at Rolling Stone.

The newspaper business was murdered by the same thing that ruined the porn industry: Free shit on the internet.

I did experiments as a child. I put out mayo and watched almost all animalia - not eat it. Not even flies. But this: “Cheetos Sweetos Crusted Cheesecake.” Not even soaked in Dik Dik sauce would any self-respecting cheetah eat that. Nor take it to cubs in the savanna grass. The smell and texture might ward off predatory alt-hyenas. I’m addicted to Flaming Hots. Requires stain remover to get it off my hands. Only humans.

Rolling Stone had fact checkers, but everyone knows how to get around them. When the editors aren't focused on integrity the system might as well not exist. And since Journolist the concern over integrity has fallen off a cliff.

I see you made my point before me. I thought I was quick enough I didn't need to check.

"Always $2!"
They hold up against the best salsa.
That Kroger generic crap don't stand up and breaks in the salsa.

But I find salsa verde geletin-ising due to tomatillos' high pectin percentage
quite off-putting in the torrid months we currently endure.

Either by quantity or by weight.

Cheetos is a superior junk food, but they're no Fritos.

*it's no Fritos*

I'm curious about the economics of a three-day "popup" restaurant. I would guess you would pack it for three days just on curiosity. Is that enough to make money? Or is it just publicity for the inevitable franchise?

It looks like Burrell saw one of those horror baskets on "Chopped" and decided to turn it into a restaurant.
