Edible coffee cup?

It is reportedly delicious while being environmentally friendly.  KFC is partnering with Seattle’s Best Coffee to release an edible coffee cup.  Called a Scoff-ee, the edible coffee holders are essentially cup-shaped cookies lined with white chocolate.  The paper around the cup is made of sugar and is also edible.

There’s no word on when U.S. consumers will be able to consume our cups, but they’re scheduled to arrive in U.K. restaurants by this summer.

$82K a year on groceries!

There’s a heated divorce in the works between Chicago hedge fund billionaire Ken Griffin and his money manager wife, Anne.  She wants $1 million a month for the care of their three children who are all under age ten.

Legal documents show the couple spends $6,800 a month on groceries, and $7,200 monthly on dining.  I always heard you can save money by not eating out so much, but I don’t think that applies to the Griffins.

New Relationship Status

20-somethings have invented a new relationship status and it’s called “Dating Partner.”  It seems that when you’re a DP, you enjoy a noncommittal, nonexclusive casual romantic relationship with someone you are both sexually and emotionally intimate with.  You’re not a hookup or a boyfriend/girlfriend.  You are a dating partner.

It seems that with a dating partner young adults get all of the good but none of the stress.  According to one 20-something, “The relationships fall somewhere in between ‘let’s just have sex’ and ‘this is my boyfriend.’

Why Eddie didn’t do Cosby

Norm Macdonald took to Twitter last night to share a behind-the-scenes account of Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary special.  Eddie Murphy was in talks to impersonate Bill Cosby is Celebrity Jeopardy, a skit Macdonald wrote and originally created for the show.  But Murphy turned down the gig the day before the Sunday telecast.  Kenan Thompson played Cosby in the sketch which also featured Will Ferrell (Alex Tribeck), Macdonald (Burt Reynolds), Darrell Hammond (Sean Connery) and Kate McKinnon (Justin Bieber).  According to Macdonald, Eddie “knew the laughs would bring the house down.  But Eddie decides the laughs are not worth it.  He will not kick a man when he is down.”
