Snarky stories on the web

Instapundit has quite a few links about press bias and the push back by the hoi polloi against the rich elites, the insular MSM, SJW and snowflake types who hate poor people of the wrong colour and then have temper tantrums when they lose or if someone objects to their ridicule.

AnnAlthouse summarizes:

This feels like another one of the post-election stories about how the losing side is very emotional and justified in its anguish and the winning side is taking advantage in an evil way. That's the template. So I'm wary of the material that's being scraped together to fit the template.

EcclesIsSaved blog sings about his favorite things in the modern church.

Masses with puppets and tambourine jingles,
Long-lasting "kisses of peace", where one mingles,
Rich German bishops all wrapped up in bling,
These are a few of my favourite things.
 Cardinal Kasper and all his new teaching,
All of Pope Francis's aeroplane preaching,
Amoris Laetitia, and all that it brings,
These are a few of my favourite things.

How to be a Good Pope 5

the Librivox book of the days is Stag cooking: no, not venison but stag, i.e. single men, as in Stag party.

This book is dedicated to "that great host of bachelors and benedicts alike who have at one time or another tried to 'cook something': and who, in the attempt, have weakened under a fire of feminie raillery and sarcasm, only to spoil what, under more favorable circumstances, would have proved a chef-d'aeuvre." 
actually cooking has become a lot easier now that you don't have to adjust the wood in the wood stove and cook from scratch.

The print version includes this tip:

 In another pan make a sauce of pre-Prohibition Sherry or Madeira, flavored with the beaten yolk of one egg, powdered nutmeg and mace, a pinch of Cayenne pepper, salt to taste, enlivened with large lump of butter.
 If pre-Prohibition Sherry is not available, names and addresses of seventy-one bootleggers can be supplied. ...

 IMPORTANT : Serve the sauce separately. The ter- rapin is frequently ignored by those who prefer the flavor of the sherry. I am one of them.

of course, the modern Bachelor cookbook has only one page in it: Microwave until hot.
