#35 Rachael Ray

by guest contributor Ryan Jones

She's a gal on the go who combines the perkiness and wholesomeness yet absence of vulnerability that Christian culture women admire, and her recipes are great for moms with a house full of kids (see #23) and a husband who doesn't help out that much (per their defined roles).

I like what Anthony Bourdain had to say about Rachel Ray:

"Complain all you want. It’s like railing against the pounding surf. She only grows stronger and more powerful. Her ear-shattering tones louder and louder. We KNOW she can’t cook. She shrewdly tells us so. So...what is she selling us? Really? She’s selling us satisfaction, the smug reassurance that mediocrity is quite enough."

This blog has made me appreciate being Catholic. Am I too outdated to think that WWJD bracelets are still worn by Christians who are trying to be cool? Was the late 1990s really the high point of that craze? I still stand by my opinion: Jesus would never have worn a lame WWJD bracelet.

One of my favourite Simpsons things ever was when, during some crisis, Homer said he referred his bracelet and brandished his "WWJD".

Lisa: What would Jesus do?
Homer: JESUS?! I thought it meant Jeppeto!

I just think she is really cute.

She's a bit of a beer geek, which makes me happy.. but should make born again types nervous.

Well yeah, but he probably wouldn't have needed a bracelet to remind him to do what he would do.

What was so funny, during the Bush administration, WWJD more often meant, "what would Jenna drink".
