(sic) culture Chooses Table Napkins Over iPhone, Any Day


We're kind of crazy about this parody site for (sic) culture's iDea, which contests the iPhone with a table napkin and an awkward pear-shaped logo sporting a bite on the "wrong" side.

Like the iPhone, it's got simplicity going for it - and like the iPhone, it can accommodate your biggest ideas, then act as a vehicle to communicate it to the rest of the world. Add-on accessories include masking tape.

As an act of goodwill, the small print divulges that the parody site was created on a Mac. That aside, we think it's less a jab to the miracle technology and more a nod to the simple things we take for granted.

JK Rowling scrawled her inspirational spark for Harry Potter on a napkin, and now she's richer than the queen. So hey, instead of gabbing your ass off and trawling Flickr in broad daylight, maybe there's something to hanging out at a cafe with a napkin, your thoughts and a little bit of desperation.

Sonya, where have you been? Living in Utah???

Sonic, once upon a time, offered pancakes on a stick, but, no longer carry the item on their menus in CA(sorry). Jimmy Dean may still make Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick Chocolate Chip!!! The distribution was limited in 2006, but, you may still find some in your grocerer's freezer!!!

The experience is well, almost religious! When you bite into the pancake ---deep enough--- to bite off a piece of the sausage, along with the chocolate chip impregnated pancake twisted around the sausage. Sex, rock and roll, hydro buds, heck even designer drugs...all take a back seat to the transcendental experience of a JD Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick Chocolate Chip. ;P not available in all markets, subject to approval by local religious leaders. ;P

Have you ever had chicken and waffles? It's an Oakland, CA specialty. HELLA good. Who'd've guessed?
