Giving Thanks for the Cherpumple and the TSA

Perhaps you’ll get to spend some time off with your family this week. And perhaps one of them will serve you the latest contribution to America's Type II diabetes epidemic—the cherpumple!

What is the cherpumple, you may ask? Well, dear reader, it’s nothing more than a three-layer cake with an entire pie baked into each layer—a cherry pie baked inside a white cake, a pumpkin pie baked inside a yellow cake and an apple pie baked inside a spice cake. Just stack the layers and seal them with cream-cheese frosting.

Yup, it's the turducken of desserts. To my amazement, the cherpumple was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal cover story along with its inventor, Charles Phoenix. Genius or loony? Watch the video below and decide.

As for the TSA? Watch the second video and decide. 'nuff said.

For those readers who will be flying this week, I want to share this important video from the over-friendly folks at the Transportation Security Agency (courtesy of Saturday Night Live).

The TSA: Using Tomorrow's Technology to Protect You from Yesterday's Threats. You're welcome.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Dear Adam,

    I suppose it's time for me to update my TSA acronym joke from "Thousands Standing Around" to "Touching Suggestive Areas."


  2. LOL times 2!

    Have a great Thanksgiving, Adam!

  3. Did you see the food safety regulation will require traceabily?
