A few possibly related items, more sanctimonious than usual, as my apology for the many, many users of Google who came to the Cod over the weekend looking for Oscar picks and were dismayed by what they found.
1) A visit to Durham, NC, and Duke University, aka "The Niman Ranch of American Higher Education" reveals not only that Fowler's is closed but also the spectacle of a female undergrad ordering coffee at Foster's wearing nothing but Uggs, tights, and, wait for it, a Duke Lacrosse T-shirt. Evidently, the Kobe jersey and the Augusta National polo were at the cleaners.
2) Sunday's Times details how the Depauw chapter Delta Zeta shitcanned some of the
heavier, less white sisters and brought in fembots from Indiana
U* to do rush by proxy.
3) Meanwhile, Jane Magazine, Sassy's redheaded stepchild, is pitching the likes of the Cod on their "hilarious reataurant prank":
There is a hilarious restaurant prank in the March issue of JANE, on stands nationwide on the 27th! I have attached the story and the March cover in case you were interested in doing anything with this. If so, please link back to JANE’s website, www.janemag.com. Thanks!
Let me know if you have any questions.
The prank consists of calling in for reservations in the name of dead celebrities.** On my to do list for the day is booking a table at Del Posto this Friday at 8 as Mr. Feminism.
* I know.
** A valuable, but undetermined prize for anyone furnishing a recording of a two or three Michelin starred chef responding to the "is your refrigerator running" prank call.
