Now THIS is pretty cool. Don’t be mad at me if they’re swamped and it takes you a while to get your “go ahead” — I just got mine after a couple of weeks. But I tried it, and, well, it’s pretty cool: Tellme.com.
Basically, once you’re signed up, you just call 800-555-TELL […]
No, this is not about poaching salmon in the dishwasher. We have already done that one.

Corn: the only food that needs no cleaning, comes in its own microwavable container — and has its own handle! Reason enough to set sail for the New World.
