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.

High schools in Wisconsin have been able to retain their Native American mascots under the rule of Scott Walker, but Menomonee Falls has decided to go ahead and change the high school mascot without any nudging from the state. While it might first appear that the school is keeping the same mascot, it is, in fact, changing from a Native American Indian to an Indian from India in order to honor an upsurge in students of Asian Indian descent. Principal Dr. Jim Coach said at a press conference, “We never had many actual American Indian students in Menomonee Falls for us to honor with the mascot name or to dress up as Chief Wampum. This move will give us more access to students to be honored by the mascot, since roughly 2% of our student body of 1500 are Indians from India, and that means at least ten kids. Maybe twenty.” Dr. Coach added, "It's pretty simple: we're going from American Indian to Indian American. Citizens of Menomonee Falls have been disappointed for years that their mascot was not able to marginalize a greater percentage of the local minority population. However, with an influx of families from India making their homes in Waukesha County, residents of the Falls have welcomed the opportunity to ridicule the group. Important citizen Janelle Whitefolk said, “It wasn’t fun when Native American Indians got upset, since we couldn’t tell them to go back to their own country if they didn’t like it. I did tell them to head back to the Rez, which was clever, but it will be so much better when we can tell people to head back to India with other illegals.” The school made the decision partially because so many uniforms already have the name “Indians” written on them, so nothing will have to change. The large F with a feather will be replaced with a jewel-encrusted Indian Elephant that will represent both the Indians and the strong Republican ideology in Menomonee Falls. The mascot at games will be a convenience store clerk named Ranbir (the brave warrior), hopefully played by an actual Indian (Asian or American). The school board also hopes to acquire a sacred cow from a local farm, and the school has decided to name the cow “Darshit,” which means “To pay respect.” “I can imagine,” said Coach, “when we’re on the football field, moving the ball against Marquette, and the crowd starts screaming, ‘Dar-shit, Dar-shit!’ And the Bollywood halftime shows!” When asked for comment, local American Indian elders crossed their arms and rolled their eyes, presumably in a cultural expression of approval.
