5. The Spitting Man from MOME #10. The story has been done before but it is done so well here.
4. Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares — there is something about seeing this guy berate pretentious pub owners, lackluster chefs and incompetent 17-year-old soup cooks that is sooooo satisfying. And when there’s redemption, the payoff is worth it.
2. This video. Thanks, Trish!
1. “Fennemore’s Lied” by Kurt Weill as sung by Ute Lemper.
