Tuesday Megalinks: Longest. Ever. Edition.

Oh my gosh, there were so many good posts this week. It was difficult to get them all in and make this less than a a 30,000-word, Dostoyevsky-type tome, so I kept the commentary to a minimum. Behold!

"PHENOMENAL POTATO POWER! Itty bitty mayonnaise."

I basically had to whisper this to myself to remember where it was from. But yes!

Also, the only ballpark food worth eating is Dippin Dots. Eating anything else is wasting time, money, and calories that could be spent on Dippin Dots.
