Last Call: Hold Up, Breakfast At McDonald’s Has How Many Calories?!
WSJ: Apparently, two pancakes and a biscuit at McDonalds has 1,150 calories – more than half of the calories needed for an average American to get through their day.

Also a shocker: a supposedly healthy mango smoothie has the same amount of calories as a chicken sandwich. Holyjesuswowmyfat.
Twitter: Mario Batali and Michael Schlow made an appearance at a Guy Fieri charity dinner at Tex Wasabi. The event was ostensibly to raise money to teach kids how to cook, but we’re oddly hoping that Fieri, trying to get Batali off that Vespa, convinced them to go drive monster trucks afterwards.
Jezebel: Old MacDonald tripped on shrooms, E-I-E-I-O! And on this trip, he made an unintentionally disturbing commercial that replaces barnyard animals with animals constructed out of various pieces of chopped vegetables, E-I-E-I-O!
New York Times: Speaking of disturbing plants! Check out some of the organic names that are spending millions to defeat California’s Proposition 37, which would require the labeling of products containing genetically modified foods: Kashi, Cascadian Farm, and Horizon Organic. Granted, this is largely because their parent company is Kellogg. Multinationals, man. Foiling all the hippie plans.
Eater Chicago: Homaro Cantu is doing a Goodfellas-themed dinner, with gun-themed dishes and a funny trailer. Whaddya mean, you think this is a funny story? Funny how?
