Lou & Lucy’s Leftovers
I have so many questions.
1: If the Food Network swept Paula Deen out of their chef stable for saying those horrible things, why does their website still allow me to access everything she apparently ever cooked?
2: How come the Food Network didn’t can her sorry act years ago when the diabetes scandal broke ?(I asked this very question when that first happened.)
3: How come the Food Network didn’t duct-tape her mouth the 51st time she used “ya’ll” within the very first two-minute segment they videotaped with her?
4: It took decades for the South to recover from the Civil War. How long will southern cooking take to recover from the abominations that Deen foisted on us?
5: How come Ann Curry didn’t interview Deen on “Today?”
6: Why am I not cooking instead of thinking about this depressing stuff?
1: Their Web tech guy had a stroke eating one of Deen’s dishes.
2: The network apparently thinks such behavior is acceptable. Like the execs always say, “until her ratings drop, we’re sticking by her.”
3: They were in shock from such crass overacting, never having actually heard anybody, anywhere, talk like that.
4: Seventeen weeks
5: Only Matt Lauer knows the answer
6: I’m cooking now!
Question: Why did Paula Deen’s cookbook “New Testament’ go from being ranked in the 1,500s at Amazon on Monday to number 1?
Answer: I guess, as they say, any publicity is good publicity.
