More on Paula Deen and her peas

The Approval Matrix of the January 31st issue of New York Magazine lists "Sarcastic" reviews of Paula Deen's English Peas "recipe," right at the bottom of the Low-brow axis and just outside the Despicable quadrant

Yes! Low-brow and yet not quite despicable, that's me! Recognition at last!

(Given that I can frequently read the entire matrix for a week and not have heard of any of the things listed, this is quite a milestone in my hipness career. So bear with me.)

For no reason at all

This is a complete waste of time, but somehow compelling. Watch this Swedish (I think) guy consume a shot of something, presumably tequila, in a non-traditional manner, by snorting the salt up his nose, downing the drink, and then rubbing the lemon wedges in his eyes. And then screaming. Takes all kinds.
