McDonald’s Cult-Favorite Shamrock Shake Returns

McDonald’s bright-green Shamrock Shake, a minty beverage only available around St. Patrick’s Day each year, has a cult following that rivals that of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and short-lived TV series “Firefly” (though possibly not McDonald’s other fan-favorite seasonal menu item, the McRib). The shake counts over 21,000 fans on its unofficial Facebook page and famous fans like Jimmy Fallon have paid public tribute to its allure. The shake’s availability varies from franchise to franchise, so Shamrock cultists have crowdsourced a Shamrock Shake locator on the web.

My Top Ten Celebrities I’d Invite To Dinner

I've come up with my most recent list of the top ten celebrity dinner companions.  Dr. Billy Graham kicks it all off by saying grace before the meal and Oprah is there because she helped me arrange it all and furnished the gift bags.   Dr. Phil has joined us in case any of the guests need intervention.  And for humor, I'd ask that Dan Ackroyd and Betty White attend.  Hugh Grant should be there, just, er, uh,  because.  The wonderfully talented Dolly Parton could team up with Stevie Wonder and Ringo Starr for a little after dinner entertainment.   More after the jump.

Flippin’ Out At The Pancake Festival

Hey, Rick Gilbert here, and I just found out that I once again will be flippin' pancakes at the 59th Annual Lion's Club Pancake Festival, Saturday Feb. 19th at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.  From my past experience flippin' cakes I can tell you it ain't no easy task.  In other words keep your fingers away from the grill... far away.  More on the festival after the jump.
