June 21: "The Disturbing Similarities Between New Al-Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri and New Today Host Ann Curry"

Recently Ayman Al-Zawahiri took over for Osama Bin Laden, and not-so-coincidently Ann Curry took over for Meredith Vieira. That got us to thinking…

    • Both work for large, poorly-run organizations.

'The Idiotical' Top 12 of 2011: #12

All this week, we'll be selecting our 12 favorite posts of 2011! Granted, we just started this blog in June, and our standards are low, so we didn't have much to choose from. In fact, you might say we had "slim pickings." Nonetheless, we'll be adding at least one every day between now and the end of the year, so be sure to come back and see which posts we're least embarrassed to call our own.

Without further ado, here's #12...

DCE Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns' Holiday Gift Guide

I love to cook and there's some great cookbooks out there for other people that do. Some of my favorite recent ones are THE MOZZA COOKBOOK which comes from a fantastic italian restaurant and pizzeria in Los Angeles, co-owned by Mario Batali.

The MOMOFUKU MILK BAR cookbook focuses on unbelievably unique dessert recipes from chef Christina Tosi, who is a cook after my own heart. Included in this book are recipes for cereal milk ice cream, this stuff called crumb and crack pie. A truly fun cookbook.
