Accentuate the positive

Man, few online writers make me laugh like the irrepressible Mimi Smartypants.

Her latest laugh-out-loud line: "The kitchen torch came with a crème brûlée cookbook, which I also have never used, although yesterday all of my cookbooks fell off of their kitchen-window-ledge shelf (more on this in a minute) and as I labored to set things right I noticed that under the large title CRÈME BRÛLÉE the tagline read, "America's Favorite Dessert." Which I think is stretching the truth an awful lot, because nothing with three different diacritical marks is ever going to be America's Favorite anything."
