e.e. as a grammatical phrase

In addition to "i.e." and "e.g.," I think we should have "e.e." as a grammatical phrase. It would be used to introduce a clause that is inspired by, or quoting, E.E. Cummings. For example: "Everyone should contemplate the nature of mortality, e.e. how do you like your blueeyed boy Mister Death."

How to Make Epic Pancakes With Your American Fire Safe

I recently came across this recipe for making pancakes with a rice cooker, and after seeing the results, I found out that I could do one better: making a pancake with your fire safe!

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite pancake mix
  • A fire safe
  • A fireplace
Directions:
  • To start, simply toss your pancake mix and any other ingredients it calls for into the fire safe.
  • Next, stir everything together until it reaches a uniform consistency.
  • Build a fire in your fireplace.
  • After that, lock the fire safe and throw it in the fire.
  • Turn over the safe every 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After just 45 minutes, take the safe out of the fireplace and serve your delicious pancake!
