”It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
I DIDN’T LEARN ABOUT THIS IN DRIVING SCHOOL
Stop says the red light, go says the green
Wait says the yellow light, twinkling in between.
KNEEL, SAYS THE DEMON LIGHT
WITH ITS EYE OF COAL
SAURON KNOWS YOUR LICENSE PLATE
AND STARES INTO YOUR SOUL
THIS IS ALWAYS FUNNY
As C.M. Kosemen explains throughout All Yesterdays, we really can’t ever know how much fat and other soft tissues contributed to the overall shape of dinosaurs since that’s the first thing to rot and shrivel tight against their bones and like even a sperm whale has a little skinny skeleton.
how would we know?
I think lizards and crocodiles give us a pretty good idea, certainly not the offspring of Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and a trex that you have there. Just thinking out loud, because I’m jealous you can draw unlike my pigeon scratchings.
Look at what the fuck we got in the mail this morning. Less than a month away until the dopest cookbook ever drops.
Preorder your copy now or get left behind this fall.
Don’t buy this book! This blog is run by corny white people pretending to be black by awkwardly inserting “motherfuckin” and “shit” in their recipes.
Read Thug Kitchen: A Recipe in Blackface for a breakdown of their shenanigans, including the racist commercial they released to promote this racist book under their racist brand.
If you want an actual “thug” perspective on food that’s not a total mockery and actually stands for something, consider The Hood Health Handbook, written by actual black people who actually give a fuck instead of exploiting black culture for $$$.
Oh wow, not surprised but damn!
Not sure if its more racist that we assumed black people with the word “thug”
^^^^ Nope. It’s not racist that we assumed that black people and “thug” are related. We know what words and images are projected onto us more than anyone else. I mean basically you’re saying that if we heard “hip hop culture” and thought about black people, we were being racist (towards ourselves…?) Thug, used as a third-person descriptor, more often than not = somebody black. This is a thing that we know, and pretending "well a thug could mean anyone!" is denial.
What’s DEFINITELY racist is taking watered-down appropriated AAVE and slapping it onto some recipes you wouldn’t think would get play on their own merit and calling it “thug kitchen” for profit. What’s racist is them using an image that we literally get harmed for, to once again, get dollars out of our demise. Ya’ll know this shit is minstrelsy, quit playin’.
What about the original Thugs?
The Thugs travelled in groups across India for six hundred years. Although the Thugs traced their origin to seven Muslim tribes, Hindus appear to have been associated with them at an early period.
They were first mentioned in Ẓiyāʾ-ud-Dīn Baranī’s History of Fīrūz Shāh dated around 1356. In the 1830s they were targeted for eradication by William Bentinck and his chief captain William Henry Sleeman. They were seemingly destroyed by this effort.
The Thugs would join travelers and gain their confidence. This would allow them to then surprise and strangle their victims by pulling a handkerchief or noose tight around their necks. They would then rob their victims of valuables and bury their bodies. This led them to also be called Phansigar (English: using a noose), a term more commonly used in southern India.
Perhaps it’s an Indian cookbook?
It would seem that we white people have a long history of targeting thugs (good and bad).
Apparently this is "The clearest photo of Mercury ever taken."
