Ribs…On…Saaale! (Say it like “Pigs…in…space” for full effect)

Hot, no? When I pulled the ribeye off, I put my ribs on which had [...]

Yeah I’d Pastrami That, I’d Pastrami the Hell Outta That

God I suck at the interweb. To compound my general aversion to perform web related tasks, I am apparently emitting some sort of EM field that causes computing devices to keel over and die.
