1. Hush puppies

2. Cornbread

3. Baked beans

4. Vinegar slaw

5. White bread/rolls/biscuits

6. Corn on the cob

7. Mac and cheese

9. Fries

10. Green Salad

Let’s argue about this a little bit more in this week’s Deadcast, shall we? Also up for discussion: folding underwear, Tim Duncan, easy jobs, peyton for president, leftover salad, pistachios, and more. If you have any tips you’d like to submit the podcast, just send it in to with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
