The Daily Ping

Somehow, Ryan has written over 1 million Pings; Paul, just 60.

I’ve taken a liking to Chopped, the Food Network show in which contestants are given a box of foods, a time limit, and need to make a course of a meal. It’s easy to drop in and out of the show. There’s no mythology. Easy entertainment.

But the most interesting part of the show is actually no longer a part of the show. Per the Pedia of Wiki, the show originally had a great concept:

According to host Ted Allen, the show “was originally meant to be taped at some guy’s mansion with him and his crazy Chihuahua. A stuffy fellow in a tuxedo was to host, and the losing chef’s dish was then fed to the dog…it was too much for Food Network.”

Come on! That’s great! Except for the dog. Chopped as it stands takes place in a kitchen. It’s too bad that the original concept didn’t make it all the way through.

In the original concept, I guess they’d be doing all dishes without onion…

True. I don’t think that would stop ’em.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
