Watertown--So you say, “What in the Sam hill is foie gras?” This is the fancy French way of saying fatty goose liver. Now most Wisconsinites are familiar with fat livers as we take pride in supporting Miller and Johnsonville which cause our livers to beg for mercy as they become infused with fatty goodness.

Foie gras is typically served in some swanky big city restaurants which similar hard to pronounce names. Back in the late 1800’s as Watertown searched for industry, the act of noodling caught on due to big city demand. Noodling consists of force feeding noodles to geese in an effort to create a fatty liver. The last known noodler of Watertown was Mrs. Rummler who gave up the practice in the 1950’s.

Ned Landread of Ned’s Noodles has been looking for a means to use up all the seconds created in the noodle making process. Ned is a longtime resident of Watertown and after looking into the history of the process thought this would be a viable means to get rid of these seconds instead of sending them to the local landfill. Ned says, “I’m always trying to find ways to make my company greener and this just seems like a homerun to me.”

This will be more of a challenge than Ned realizes as this practice has now been outlawed as it was deemed inhumane to animals. So instead of being able to create a greener business (as seems to be the standard these days), Ned will continue to fill our ever growing mountains of trash with something that could be filling our ever growing bellies (via foie gras) instead.

The state of Wisconsin is currently considering adding another season for all you hunters out there. Now you could have the chance to legally harvest those wall mounting cardinal, finches, and orioles that have been hanging out around your bird feeder, instead of just the squirrels.Wisconsin State Representative Joel Kleefisch, a Republican and a real man, has proposed a bill that will allow the hunters of Wisconsin a chance to knock down the overpopulated songbird population. Joel stated in a recent interview, “I’m tired of having to fill my bird feeder twice a day in order to feed all those songbirds.” In light of the passing of the bill for mourning dove hunting in 2001 in the state allowing hunting of them for the first time since 1918, hunters are hoping this will also be passed. Jeb Franken stated in an interview: “I’ve been picking off them stupid squirrels for years around my feeder, but what I really want is a nice cardinal roast for supper one of these days. I hope this will be a step in the right direction.”

Actor and Comedian Martin Lawrence has admitted to Real Wisconsin News that he is in fact Serena Williams, and has been playing her for years. He also plays the role of Serena’s father Richard Williams, as well as Oracene “Big Momma Brandy” Price, Serena’s mother. Lawrence says that he meant no harm by entering the women’s tennis arena. In fact, the entire concept was to provide young tennis phenom Venus Williams with an instant family, but the ruse was simply taken too far.
