    [PZ] had no idea how hard it would be on [his] masculine self-esteem.
    but, but, but, it was directed at PZ! but at sexist men. I know all men are inherently sexist, though most “men are sexist” is slightly different than “sexist men”. get the gist? oops. Even though a men, I did enjoy that video and popped over to YouTube to give it a “thumbs up”. Not to clear me of sexism, in spite of it. So there.
    [gee that was fun]

    typo @ 2:
    “it was not directed at PZ…”. the bolded “not” was dropped @2. shizme

    Hmm… I don’t know, my first thought was:

    “Lily, I have served Cheese. I know Cheese. Cheese is a friend of mine. Lily, THAT is no Cheese.”

    This was lovely. I’ll have to watch more of her videos.

    I do, however, object to the idea that penis size or how much sex someone has is a determining factor in how cool someone is. The biggest misogynists in my life have still had girlfriends. I think we can do better than those lazy attacks that have bad splash damage.

    You could go make a similar comment on her youtube channel.
    Where she might read it.

    Mayonnaise instead of butter? What foul heresy is this?

    I suspect Southern Protestantism. I grew up in the South in a Protestant family and we used mayonnaise religiously on just about everything, particularly sandwiches. Praise the Lord, amen.

    Honey mustard has no reason to be anywhere near salami. And that “cheese” is an abomination. Other than that, it was a nice, polite instructional video.

    As a non-American I have to admit this sandwich looks very unappetizing. The bread actually looks inedible.

  10. Saad says

    Hah! She’s using unappetizing looking bread and bad cheese.

    That was the point of the video, right?

  11. Saad says

    She should try making a sarcastic video mocking sexist dudebros’ comments and leave the recipe videos to the chefs.

    So it would seem. Willfully missing the point and refusing to talk about the actual subject, that’s the commentariat these days.

  13. Jake Harban says

    Not a fan.

    1. Packaged sliced bread? Seriously? Get a crusty roll and hollow out the soft insides.

    2. Use pepperoni, not salami.

    3. Get rid of that processed plastic cheese. Use proper cheese. I recommend Swiss or provolone (or both).

    4. A second lighter meat like chicken or turkey wouldn’t go entirely amiss.

    5. Get rid of the spinch leaves. They have no business anywhere near a sandwich.

  14. kestrel says

    @Jake Harban #19: and here I thought “spinch” had something to do with the evolution of vegetables.

    I think that the “sandwich” was not a gourmet level creation was as has been noted above part of the point of doing it at all. When you stop to consider who the “instructions” were aimed at in fact it would be even “better” with generic white sandwich bread and supper market brand balcony

    Wow, thanks for the helpful video, PZ!
    I went to make a sandwich for dinner and really screwed up, finding a roasted duck coming out of the oven, with scalloped potatoes and brussel sprouts. Alas, there was a tragic accident involving the spinach – I ate it before it could get into any bowls. ;)

    OK, actually, my wife was feeling poorly and I cooked dinner, just as I did on Thanksgiving.
    Tomorrow, I’ll be cooking a couple of gallons of pasta sauce, which will then be frozen in quart sized containers (as my pressure cooker hasn’t been taken out of storage yet, I can’t can them with the meat), then do some work on the car.

    I’ll watch more of her videos while I’m brewing some green tea for another pitcher of iced tea.
    I’ll have to remember to pick up some more honey, running low, as well as some lemon juice.
    Although, I could splurge a bit and place some lemon slices in the infuser that comes with the pitcher…

  17. chigau (ever-elliptical) says

    You can add meat to the frozen pasta sauce when you use it.
    It’s often better because cooked-frozen-thawed ground meat can get … weird.
