Jeannie told me about this one. Soaking pickles in Kool Aid. And then, I guess, eating them. They're popular in the South. Shocker.
A new trend? Photo and a link to a New York Times story at Deep Fried Kudzu. I also found info on TrendHunter. It looks to be a very cool site. Also on the site, a foot rest that works like a skateboard. I don't think I could concentrate on my work if I had one of those. But, it would be a welcome distraction in some meetings.
