Nobel thoughts

When I'm made a member of the Nobel Committee, I will lobby for the addition of a Nobel Culinary Prize (the Beard Award just doesn't cut it). My vote for the inaugural prize will go to whoever thought of freezing the White Castle burger and selling it in supermarkets.

If that person remains anonymous, then I would nominate the inventor of the Taco Bell Cheezy Bean & Rice Burrito. It's big, tasty, relatively nutritious, and under a buck. Truly a grand slam in junk food.

I'd also give a Lifetime Achievement Nobel to Alton Brown. For all the opposite reasons that I gave the previous two awards out.

Though an option for the first two would be a Nobel Prize in Chemistry. That'd work too, I guess.
