Bono's laser jacket

At the end of Saturday Night Live tonight, Bono wore a jacket covered with red lasers.  According to a web search, he's been wearing the jacket, with 240 eye-safe lasers built in, on U2's 360 tour.

Coyoty eats Jonny Rapp's Totally Cool! Cheddar & Bacon Flavored Baked Fries.



Kosher "corn & tater snack" from Barrel O' Fun Snack Foods Co. of Perham, MN. Found in a vending machine in a Goodwill Store in Hamden, CT.

I'm not listing the ingredients.  Go ask an alchemist.

These are like Andy Capp's fries, and the name indicates they're supposed to be mistaken for them.  I got them because they're an unusual brand in my area, and I like cheddar and I like bacon.  They don't taste like either.  The bacon flavor is nearest to Bacos, and the cheddar flavor is nearest to artificial grated parmesan.

If I'd known that was a kosher symbol before I looked it up, I would have realized there was something strange about a bacon flavored kosher product.  I also think there's something strange about a kosher product with so many chemicals in it.  I guess kosher isn't as wholesome as I thought.

Coyoty drinks calamansi juice.



Luzona brand calamansi juice drink. A product of the Philippines. Purchased at A Dong Supermarket in West Hartford, CT. 

Ingredients include water, calamansi extract, sugar, and citric acid.

Calamansi is a citrus fruit from the Philippines and southeast Asia that is usually described as a cross between tangerines and kumquats.  The taste was surprisingly good, and seemed to me to be like a very slightly tart HoneyBell fruit, which is a hybrid between Dancy tangerines and Duncan grapefruits.  Better than orange juice.
