Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Today Joanna O'Leary discussed an issue close to her heart, the difference between a cinnamon roll and a sticky bun, which inspired commenter Ziggy Smogdust to up the bizarre factor on EOW:

I can't ever think about sticky buns without thinking of one my favorite "The Young Ones" episodes. (Motorhead was the musical guest on this episode back in 1984, and they sang the "Ace of Spades.") Cue the video to about 4:50. The sticky bun "covered with human beings the size of amoebas" is actually an eclair. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysG96dUtGh4

We watched, and, um, yes, that is not a human-covered sticky bun, but a human-covered éclair. Which...gets consumed by an elephant. Well done, Ziggy.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
