When the fire's out, add a slice of American cheese and return to the broiler until the cheese begins to melt. Which will happen as soon as the cheese hits the napalm butter ball of a muffin. Put it under the broiler, and it's going to burn on impact.

The smell of burning bologna made my stupid little dog Murphy go completely ridiculous, and she kept sticking her head in the broiler. Murphy is fearless when it comes to food; she's been known to eat live bees.

The Scandinavian Sandwich, with ingredients from England, America, France and Italy, has one thing in common with Scandinavian cuisine. It tastes like flavorless crap. It's char and mush.

Murphy loved it. We're going to change her name to Yrsa. It's Nordic for "she who eats burnt crap and bees."
