Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me http://wcbe.org en Sandwich Monday: The (Knockoff) Cronut http://wcbe.org/post/sandwich-monday-knockoff-cronut By now, you've probably heard of cronuts, the half-doughnut, half-croissant pastry equivalent of a liger. They're so coveted, people line up for hours at <a href="http://dominiqueansel.com/">the Dominique Ansel bakery</a> in New York, where they're made, or they pay exorbitant sums <a href="http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2013/06/cronut-black-market/66448/">on the cronut black market</a>.

As one of the first female reporters to be allowed inside the NFL locker room, she has been a pioneer in her field. But there are still places out there where they believe in cooties, so Tafoya will answer three questions about men's-only clubs. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2013 NPR.

If it weren't for him, bands like Slayer and Megadeth would be playing love songs in identical suits and bowl haircuts.<p>We've invited Cooper to play a game called "So what if you<em> had</em> bitten the head off that chicken?" We know — or at least, are willing to believe — he didn't really bite the head off a live chicken on stage.

Live Cinema Event Sandwich Monday: The Butter & Sugar Burger http://wcbe.org/post/sandwich-monday-butter-sugar-burger This is something that exists in Asia:<p>NPR still stubbornly refuses to pay for our travel — something about "sullying NPR's image abroad" and "Ian, how many times do we have to tell you, you don't really work here" — so we had to make our own version.<p>A disclaimer: We tried putting one together according to the specs of the image above, but no one could get down even a single bite. We lowered the butter content slightly.<p><strong>Peter</strong>: I like the crunch of the sugar.
