Cadavers: Delightfully Delectable 😋 or Disgustingly Detestable 🤢 ?

Asking for a friend.

Turns out the best ways to defeat Nazis is to punch them:

Richard Spencer says that antifa sucked all the fun out of college appearances, calls it quits

Elements of the left say that antifa tactics -- direct, physical confrontations with fascists and racists -- are a "gift to the alt-right," letting them play victim and validating their paranoid fantasies about the persecution of white dudes -- but punched Nazi Richard Spencer says that antifa tactics have worked as intended, making it impossible for him to continue his on-campus recruitment tour for his forthcoming race-war.

Five Women Accuse Richard Meier of Sexual Harassment, According to New York Times

According to a story published online Tuesday afternoon in the New York Times, five women have come forward with accusations of sexual harassment by Richard Meier, the 83-year-old, Pritzker Prize–winning architect. According to a statement issued by the firm, the founder will take a six-month leave of absence.

“I am deeply troubled and embarrassed by the accounts of several women who were offended by my words and actions,” Meier said in the statement. “While our recollections may differ, I sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by my behavior.

Four of the women identified in the Times story worked for Meier, with two describing similar instances of the architect exposing himself to them at his apartment in New York. A third employee alleges that Meier asked her to undress at his apartment, while a fourth referenced an incident, which was witnessed by coworkers, that occurred at a holiday party. Two of the four recalled having been “warned” by colleagues about the founder’s behavior before their experiences with Meier.


Cornell also declined the architect's gift to name the chair of the School of Architecture.

Candy shop owner makes 'misfit chocolates' with broken Easter candy

Easter is a busy time for chocolatier Andy Karandzieff (aka "Andy Candy". He expects to sell over 10K chocolate bunnies this month at his candy shop, a St. Louis institution since 1913.

However, when one of his hand-poured chocolates breaks coming out of its mold, the Crown Candy Kitchen owner doesn't toss it or re-melt the chocolate. He instead takes the broken pieces and starts franken-ing them together, forming "misfit chocolates."

He told KSDK, "You can start getting creative and you get these oddball, misfit things that come out of my demented imagination sometimes."
