Viral meme all your friends already know about, #1

I used to think "My Humps" was the world's most obnoxious earworm. Then I heard "Bananaphone," which goes something like this: "Ringringringringringringring. Bananaphone!" I absolutely do not suggest that you watch the "video" making the Internet rounds, which features a pony, a robot, and a cete of cartoon badgers doing pliés. (Cete:badger::flock:seagulls.) Beware: The video is on an infinite loop. If this little ditty crawls into your auditory canal and takes up permanent residence and you begin to feel that your life will be meaningless until you, too, own a "cellular, modular, interactive-odular" phone in the shape of a banana, you can get the necessary gewgaw at Fred Flare for ten bucks.

 

EDIT: Ah. Things are so much clearer now -- "Bananaphone" is the work of the incredibly annoying children's entertainer Raffi.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
